Name/Partner's Name: Cat and Dave
Age/Partner's Age: Both 31
How long have you been together: Together 9 yrs; Married 7 yrs

Do you have children, if so how many and ages: No kids, just our furbaby (kitty) Charlie-buns, who is NOT going to want to share the attention. ;)

How long have you been TTC: This is our first month.

Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Not that we know of.

What are your TTC plans for 2014: We are going to try for 2 or 3 mos. with opk's and charting temps.

Thing about yourself you want to share: My DH and I own a business together. It is seasonal, and me being pregnant during the heavy season would make things really difficult for us. So, since we are aiming for giving birth during the few months that we aren't busy, we are only going to be trying for the next 2-3 mos. If we don't get pregnant by then, we'll be putting it on hold again until next year. Because of this, I'm terrified it won't happen. I really don't want to wait another entire year. :(

What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) Since I've been on birth control for so long, I've decided I would BBT chart and use OPKs to see what my baseline is. I don't even remember what my natural cycle was like. I've been on birth control for nearly 14 years... which I just realized is half my life. Wow.

Name/Partner's Name: I prefer just to go by my username (Internet safety and all). I will usually just call my hubby, well, "my hubby".

Age/Partner's Age: 25/24. By being two months older than him, I am a crazy cougar. lol.

How long have you been together: Married only 3 months. Newlyweds.

Do you have children, if so how many and ages: I have one son from my previous marriage. He is 2.5 yrs old and the love of my (and my hubby's) life.

How long have you been TTC: This is only our second month

What are your TTC plans for 2014: Both months we've been using they very proven "spray and pray" method (lol). I never chart anything more than AF days and days we BD. :)

Anything about yourself you want to share: Uhm, I am looking for a place to go crazy so that my hubby misses the crazy. He wants a baby as much as I do, but he's much more relaxed during the 2ww then I am.

Name/Partner's Name: Amanda/Andrew
Age/Partner's Age: 32 (Husband is 29)
How long have you been together: 9 years
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: None
How long have you been TTC: 6 years
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: I have PCOS. He had a mild issue with his testosterone levels but that has been dealt with.
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) This has been a hard fertility road but we are back on it. About three years ago we pursued fertility treatment. After 3 failed cycles with clomid, the doctor suggested injectables as the next step. I personally was not ready. The 3 cycles had been very hard on me. Here we are three years later. New doctor. New attitude. Had more testing done then I have ever had done before and one cycle of clomid (including being on it twice in the same cycle) only to find out I had resistant to it. Due to my husband's testosterone problem we are skipping right to IUI with femara now. That is where we are now.... As far as meds go --> Prenatal, fish oil, metformin (1500mg)
Anything about yourself you want to share: Just looking for people who understand.

Name/Partner's Name: Vida & Edwin
Age/Partner's Age: 31 & 32
How long have you been together: We met in 2005, started dating in 2007, married in 2011. We sure know how to take it slow.
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: Just a Fur baby - Bambam who is 3
How long have you been TTC: We are ttc after a loss in November of 2013.
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Our first pregnancy resulted in an ectopic pregnancy and the loss of my right tube, other than that no.
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) We both work really demanding jobs and I'm in school again so after the loss we kind of slowed down, and we have been TTC now since May. The next round will be with an ovulation predictor kit (not use to the acronyms just yet).
Anything about yourself you want to share: We both come from very large families and want two children of our own before we begin to adopt children in the future we ideally want 4 children.

Name/Partner's Name: Amanda and the Farmer

Age/Partner's Age: I am 37, he just turned 29

How long have you been together: Almost 3 years

Do you have children, if so how many and ages: We do not have children together but I have 4 children ages 18, 16, 14, and 11

How long have you been TTC: As soon as I had my tubal reversal surgery on June 3, 2014

Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Started charting before my surgery. My cycle was short and my luteal phase was too short. Used supplements and was able to get 2 extra days on my cycle and one extra day on my luteal phase. I do not make enough cm. My surgeon told me time is of the essence because I have a lot of scar tissue issues, my tubes could close back up so I need to get my BFP as soon as possible.

What are your TTC plans for 2014: Continued BBT, B complex, raw prenatal, cod liver oil, magnesium citrate, folic acid. Raw milk, free range eggs, grass fed beef, and lots of butter. Adding OPKs this month. Have a clear blue fertility monitor I can try. Doing a soy cycle in July even though I am sensitive to soy. Dropped the vitex and maca for now. Trying EVPO cd1 to O for increased CM. Pineapple core. SMEP. Castor oil packs. It probably seems like I am doing a lot for someone who just started trying but see above, I may not have long to get my BFP.

Anything about yourself you want to share: Ummm...Hi!

Age/Partner's Age: 28/28
How long have you been together: 3.5 Yrs
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: Yes-1 She is 5, going on 25 (lol)
How long have you been TTC: Dh and I had an oops’ pregnancy July, 2013, miscarried Aug 2013. And since then we have decided that we will actually TTC.
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: Not as far as we know
What are your TTC plans for 2014: Charting my CD’s as well as BBT, CM, and maybe OPK’s…l
Anything about yourself you want to share: DH and I have nown each other for about 6 years and have been together for 3.5. I have a daughter from a previous relationship. Our relationship took a bit of a nose dive at the end of Aug 2013 when I found out that my DH has potentially fathered another child during a brief break between him and me. A DNA test has just been done (July 8, 2014) so we are currently waiting for results. We have been in the repair phase of our relationship ever since I found out and it has been the hardest thing I have ever had to get over, accept and forgive! The pain of this is like nothing I can describe and I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy! We had decided that we will TTC this summer if things were looking good. It’s hard to be in this situation and say that “things are good” but they are getting better every day and we would like to move on to the next stage in our relationship. If anyone on here has gone through this situation or something similar, please feel free to msg me. Or if you just want to chat, also please feel free to msg me. I’m new to this site, so I’m still trying to get the swing of things!
Me: 28
DH: 28
TTC: #2 for me and #1 for DH

We haven't actively been trying yet, but we've been practicing! (practicing...hehe!) I have a bit of a long and confusing story but hopefully I can join some great discussion here :)

Name/Partner's Name: Terra & AJ
Age/Partner's Age: 25 / 37
How long have you been together: 6 yrs / married 3 yrs
Do you have children, if so how many and ages: no
How long have you been TTC: first month
Do you (or your partner) have any infertility issues: endometriosis, ovarian cysts / retrograde ejaculation - remedied this month with sudafed
What are your TTC plans for 2014: (fertility meds, supplements, OPKs, BBT charting, NTNP, etc,) aiming for natural conception, using OPK and BBT charting
Anything about yourself you want to share: I had a laparascopy 3 years ago for mild endo, my dr said I could conceive and carry to term fine, however I wasn't ready to try yet. Since my DH has retrograde ejaculation I was terrified and still am that we would not be successful getting pregnant on our own. But with some googling and help from Sudafed, we've fixed that problem, so we decided to start TTC this month. We actually just started trying on the 11th, the same day I bought the Sudafed and OPK. So I am currently 6dpo and hoping and praying for a BFP soon!
