TTC forum?

It sure sounds like if we had a TTC forum as Renee asked (BTW, Howdy Renee! Welcome!), at least TWO people would use it. Can we get a show of hands....err-- posts and chime in here if you think you'd use a TTC forum?

me,me,me!

Like Sandy, I sure don't hope to have to use it long, but it will be nice to have the support! I belonged to a TTC board when I was ttc with Alyssa and it was helpful. Right now I'm not doing the charting--did it last time and got quite tired of it. Just trying to guess when I might O and BD (babydance!) a few days before and after. Does anyone know how much an ovulation predictor kit is? My periods range from 25-28 days so it's hard to predict exactly when I will O. Frustrating!

THIS is what I was very close to buying when I got pregnant (surprise,surprise) after four years of TTC- an expensive investment, but buying the test strips that go with it seemed less like a shot in the dark than the ovulation predictor tests, especially given my irregular cycles (REALLY irregular 35-90 days between cycles)

It's a great idea to have a ttc forum. I am not able to ttc yet, but look forward to seeing you here, hopefully for a very short time!

I think it is a great idea because reading you guys posts here will give me courage and inspiration - I am already moved by what I read so far - tho I am still a ways from TTC.
