I would like to try sooner if we were more ready, but I want to wait to November to drop some weight, get the house ready.... plus we are going to Disney world in November and I don't want to be wondering if I'm pregnant or not or worried if I am and I really do not want a Feb/March/April due date... I think the dates would just fall to close to when I had my daughter because she was due March 1st. Soooo I figure we will try November - May (if needed LOL), then take a break and try October to May (if need).... and then if nothing give up on that, bite the bullet and spend $30,000 (O-M-G) for international adoption.
I hope you get preggers quickly, and you are so right, trying when you should have a baby in your arms is the worst. I'm still bitter, and it has been a long long time for me. I feel like it cost me my first marriage, my first child, and a lot of pain. I just keep hoping and praying that this time will be different!

I'm ttc now and I hate cycle day 1 too, bc it means last month was unsuccessful and I have to wait a whole month more to know if I'll be lucky this time around. It also means I'm back at ground zero of a process (pregnancy) that I was already more than half way through when things went wrong last time- brings up resentment that I'm even trying when I should have already had my baby! (but that's still grief talking).
Good idea to start tracking your cycles now so you'll be all ready for November... though it sounds like you want to start sooner?

Cycle Day 1..

This is always such a sad day when you are trying... but I'm happy because we aren't supposed to be trying until November. I think I'm going to start doing the temperature thing just to make sure my lutral phase is still 12 days. Ahhhh those two years of my life were crazy when my ex and I were trying. I hated watching and waiting for the temp to drop and then go up!! This will be different though! I have been really lucky lately with normal 28-32 day cycles. My cycles used to be CRAZY as long as 72 days. When I finally got pregnant last time I ovulated really late, around cycle day 32 so I wonder if that had anything to do with anything. I just keep telling myself things are so different now... I need to stay in a happy place and in November just drive in and hope for the best and maybe Veronica will give me a miracle since that is her month!
