Whos excied to start ttc for the 1st time!
My husband and i are coming up on our 1st wedding anniversary and our fourth year being together and this is going to be our first month ttc. We are VERY excited! I have a doc apt aug 15 for pre pregnancy checkup then the fun part will start :)
I just finished my last pack of bc pills and am hoping my cycles and ovulation will get back on track pronto! Before bc i usually had about a 26 day cycle. Heres hoping for a bfp by september! We wont be using any fertility aides yet. We decided to give it a few months just letting nature take its course.
We have always loved eachother and had a very healthy and happy relationship but its hard to explain how your heart feels when you decide your ready to make a new life with the person you love! My heart is so happy!
Who else is excited to start this journey? I want to hear other stories and follow and support eachother until we get our BFP's

My husband and I have been married for a year and a half and we are in our third month of "not preventing". I have a strong history of endometriosis on my mom's side of the family, so I am going to get checked out by my OBGYN on 8/21.
This will be my first month to use the OPKs (cheap strips off the internet... not ready to invest a ton of $$). I also have been reading up on the "sperm meets egg plan". We have a pretty active sex life anyway (TMI?) but I just want to be sure that we are BDing at the right time.
Some days I'm totally relaxed and thinking "it will happen when it happens" and other times all I can think about is a little baby in my arms. I'm a nurse in a neonatal intensive care unit so I take care of babies all day long. I am so excited for when it will be our turn to look at a tiny human and say "you are mine".

Thanks for joining mcfarlane! I understand endo! Thats part of my doc apt aug 15 to talk about options. Im nervous going off my bc for fear of terrible cramps that affect my work and life for a full week. I havent had a laporascopy yet so i dont know the severity or even if my tubes are clear. Unless the doc suggests differently we are going to just start trying naturally and see where that leads us.
