DH and talked last night and while he was originally thinking of TTC come Jan, I wanted to start a bit earlier. So, after discussing it...we will probably be starting in Oct/Nov. This way my due date would be after May. I graduate in May and didn't want a date too close as I gave birth to DD two weeks before the semester ended last year. Don't want to miss my graduation as well as walk acroos the stage 9 months along. This way too, if something does happen and baby comes early, it hopefully would happen after school is done. I figured get another baby in before I start a job, rather than find a job while pg and have to ask for time off right away. This way I can still have time with the new baby over summer. I can't wait! My girlfriend just found out she's pg and due in March. My cousin is TTC come Sept. I was pg with both of them last time. Maybe I will be again! just had to share!![:D]

TTC is just so exciting!! I bet that you are hoping the next 3-4 months flies by. Seems like everyone I know is pregnant or TTC. My sister is visiting on Sat. and decided to hold off on testing until she gets here. She's on CD 33 (14 dpo) with no AF yet!!!!

Congrats Denise! Even thinking about ttc is so exciting! I don't care when I have a baby as long as it is not in June. lol I know way too many people with June bdays and don't want to have to spend more $$$ that month. So we are looking at ttc in Nov., that will put us into Aug. That way even if s/he comes early, maybe it will be July. I guess we will have to wait and see. (I have probably jinxed myself into having a June baby.) Lots of luck to you, maybe we can have our little ones together, wouldn't that be fun!?!

Hee hee Amanda-I feel the same about "July." I know 10 people with b-days in July. Heck, my son and grandmother share the same birthday! I think that I want a holiday baby in 2005-one around Nov. or December. If nothing else it's a good excuse for not going home during Christmas and having to split up the time between 4 sets of parents (both our parents are divorced and remarried). Sorry to have to miss that...

Wonderful Denise ~ Looks like we have a stream of TTC'ers here. I will be trying next cycle. I know about trying to plan the timing too, I have already assumed 2 months early, when hopefully it won't be that and I could actually have a full-term baby!

Congrats, Denise! We'll be pretty close...I'll be starting in Nov, when the insurance kicks in to pay for the meds. Here's hoping the next few months go by quickly--the wait is killing me!

Good luck Jenn, when the time comes! I completely know how you feel! I want to shout it from the rooftops that we are going to try, but we are keeping it very low key and telling only a few close friends. Way too much pressure from the grandmas otherwise.[;)][:D]
