Who we are:

Unknown date or Multiple dates

Screen Name: laur318
Real Name: Lauren
Coarse of Action: Old Fashioned way
Why Wait?: Just had a baby in April 2009. Also need more room in house.


Screen Name: JaylasMommy
Real Name: Ashley
Coarse of Action: Old Fashioned Way
Why Wait?: Not a good time to have a child

Screen Name: rcarver
Real Name: Rebekah
Coarse of Action: exercising and dieting like a crazy person
Why Wait? OB told me I could reduce my risk of developing pre-eclampsia again if I lost the baby weight. 11 pounds to go!

Screen Name: butterflies.in.a.jar
Real Name: Stephanie
Coarse of Action: 8 days left til I'm off the pill... then we'll see what happens next!
Why Wait? My fiance has about a thousand reasons (excuses?) why we need to wait... mainly he's not comfortable with our current financial status (even though I've actually done the number crunching, and we could comfortably support a baby too) and then he adds on about a dozen things he wants to do before we become parents, but I think (along with a bunch of our mutual friends) that he's just nervous and scared. I'll be off the pill soon, so we'll have to see how things go from there. Maybe he'll set a date!

Screen name: filiadeluna
Real name: Jessica
Course of Action: charting, CM, *maybe* OPKs
Why wait?: Just gave birth to DD in March '09. Wanting to wait a few months so there will be less risk of my milk drying up while she is still an infant. We aren't preventing, but I'm not sure I'm even ovulating yet since I've only had one PPAF and it was shorter than normal.

Screen Name: Liv'sMom
Real Name: ???
Course of Action: I'm charting. Looking forward to trying to remember that temp in the morning!
Why Wait? I need to get clearance from my gyn. due to some recent issues. I have that consult on Wed. so I'm hoping that goes well! We are hoping to start trying in Aug. or Sept. I also teach school, so we're hoping for a summer baby. The less of work I have to miss, the better (means I'll not get my pay docked!) :lol

Screen name: Slimy72
Real name: Laurel
Coarse of Action: Wait til end of treatment, then charting, clomid, and anything else my dr tells me (if it's anything like last time it will be a while)
Why Wait?: Six months of hormone therapy after endometrial surgery (and six more to have it out of my system fully)

Screen name: Diapernewby
Real name: Sasha
Coarse of Action: Not Preventing
Why Wait?: Appt with RE in September

Screen name: BrittBBT
Real name: Brittany
Coarse of Action: Not trying. Mostly preventing. Want to start NFP but nursing messes me all up, hormone wise.
Why Wait?: I have infant twins. Need I say more? I want to begin trying when they are around 1-2. Oh, and income is a bit of a factor!

Screen Name: Spurk5532
Real name: Kirstin
Course of Action: eventually IUI
Why wait?: Need to deal with my life.

Screen Name: AlisonR80
Real Name: Alison
Course of Action: Old-fashioned way, if DH gets on board
Why Wait?: Dh not on board


Screen Name: Mommysweetpea
Real Name: Tammy
Course of Action: NFP
Why Wait: We want to wait until our son is in kindergarten. We need a bigger house. I need to lose about 50 lbs. (I'm already down 7 in one week! Woohoo!)

screen name:
WilloWanka
real name: Willow
course of action?: Once we start TTC I will be charting. My cycles are 56-90 days with two O gear ups, but only 1 actual O, so TTC can be frusturating. We have 5 children, but 11 pregnancies, getting pregnant is easy, staying pregnant...not so much. Anyway, charting, OPKs lots of sex, lol. I'm gonna look into Soy as well.
Why wait?: Waiting until DS is a year old or until I convince DH, whichever comes first... :P

Screen Name: Julesboch
Real name: Jules
Course of action: Trojan army
Reason for waiting: Lots! Financial, DH is deploying in Feb, I have IC, We may move within the next year, etc...etc...etc.


November 2009
Screen Name: oddduck
Real Name: Marianne
Coarse of Action: Old Fashioned Way
Why Wait?: Need to get through 12 week coarse of meds that can't take while pregnant or nursing. Also don't want 2 in fulltime daycare at the same time.


Screen Name: Lanasmom
Real Name: Jamie
Course of Action: He can wear condoms ...I'm sick of hormones and if he doesn't want to wear condoms then we will just get preggo!!
Why Wait?: DH isn't fully on board

December 2009
Screen Name: dragondance
Real Name: Faith
Course of Action: monitoring CM, probably charting but it stresses me out so not at first
Why Wait?: Because dd2 has SPD and is very, VERY demanding of our attention and energy. So we are waiting until she would be 3 when we have a new baby, so she will hopefully be old enough and benefitted enough from therapy to be able to handle a newborn and not being the center of attention, all the time, with sensory stuff constantly.

Screen Name: buttonnose
Real name: ???
Coarse of Action: Going off BCP in December 2009 prep for cycling will be charting and using OPK's

Why Wait? Had a very traumatic end to my pregnancy with DD (pre-e, emergency CS, 31 week birth, 6.5 week NICU stay) I"m working on losing 30 lbs (19 left) before TTC and would like to try next spring, but DH isn't on board yet, I'm working on him

Why Wait? We are waiting for financial reasons and because dh would be more comfortable waiting for Saedra to become a bit more independent.

Screen name: dsmrwtnttn

Why wait?: SO hasn't said yes for sure yet. He likes the idea of another baby but doesn't want to commit until closer to when I actually want to ttc, which is February/March 2010. He says it will probably happen, and I am totally getting my hopes up because I've got baby fever so bad.

Screen Name: Imogen's_Mum
Real Name: Charissa
Coarse of Action: Charting
Why Wait? Every month I struggle with wanting to TTC and have to remind myself why the timing isn't good...I still have 25+ lbs to lose, we are trying to buy a house, DH's work is still sporadic....
But most of all, I need to be happy in the moment and enjoy DD before I give her a sibling!

Course of Action: LAM, our youngest is only 5 months old, and im tandem nursing her 2yo brother. once ppaf returns, i suppose we'll use condoms or spermicide along with NFP/FAM...charting is fun!
Why Wait? well, we have a 5 month old daughter mostly. also, hubs is still pretty much on the fence about whether or not we'll ever ttc again...but the best he can give me is that he would like to wait until pea is 2...which is in may of 2011...also, i'd really like to have another spring baby...and be nice and preggo during the holidays. truthfully, i dont know if we'll make it that far since ive already got the itch...but his wants/needs are important to me, too.

AOTD: I would love to learn "fluent" sign language. I took a course in high school and learned a lot, but I've forgotten much of it.

I just want to learn it because a lot of my students (when I was teaching and I do plan to go back) spoke it. Some of their parents couldn't speak English so it made PT conferences a little difficult. I'd like to communicate with them better.
