casilayne- That. Was. Hilarious! I seriously snickered over my morning tea! I’m sorry that the witch showed up though. Hopefully next month is your month
j_cannoy & sarahmezz- I totally agree on being pregnant in the summer! The humidity is so bad here that you can barely breathe when you walk outside! My poor SIL is due in late August and she’s already feeling the misery of summer. Hopefully we can all bypass that, although at this point I’d live in the Sahara Desert if it meant that I could have a baby.
frances- Thank you for sharing your story! It’s always encouraging to hear stories with happy endings on this thread!
alzora- You got billed for a question? Good grief! That is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard! What, are we supposed to stay blissfully ignorant about our health and be okay with it? I don’t think so. When I went to my appointment in March I told my doctor that we were TTC and she gave me a whole bunch of information to help us along! She even said “hope we see you back soon!” Maybe it’s just the difference in states... Either way it’s a load of garbage! As for analyzing symptoms, you’re preaching to the choir. I honestly don’t know what to tell you. I do the same thing and confuse myself to the point of lying on the couch and gorging myself on junk food. Hopefully it’s a good sign though, right? I mean pregnancy and PMS symptoms are supposedly similar. Good luck!"I'd rather be honest than impressive."

@Khaatje no it was regular vitamin A, not the beta carotene variety unfortunately
@Caseymay, hello! You probably know more about everyone here than I do if you've been reading the thread My husband and I also married fairly recently - in January - but we also have a three year old daughter. She was our flower girl! I am no expert at TTC but I have heard the average time of TTC is 6 months, which naturally means there will be some people who take longer and some less time. I am a pretty impatient person though so I'm with you when you say a year is a long time to wait before you get any help.
@alzora that is frustrating with the insurance. I find it very hard to get my head around the US healthcare system, it seems so heartless! In NZ nearly all medical care is free, including maternity care/giving birth etc. There are no restrictions on which healthcare providers you can use (unless you want to go private) or what medical treatment you have to have, either. Does it make a difference when the baby is conceived re: what maternity care you are entitled to?
@j-cannoy, I can sympathise with not wanting to be pregnant in the summer. I don't really get a choice - where I live it is hot year round! The bonus with summer pregnancies is that you can wear cute dresses. Often a lot prettier and less maternity-esque than winter maternity jeans.
@sarahmezz - that's a pretty good reason to want a girl. I can't imagine having to have that discussion - would be very hard for me.
I can't find anywhere that will ship preg tests or prenatal pills at a reasonable price to me in the Maldives. Luckily my friend in the UK is happy for me to get things shipped to her and then forward them to me - a pain but much more economical.
On the topic of names, DH says he likes Elodie Isis. I am crushing on this combo so much that it's making me want another girl! Probably tomorrow I'll find the perfect boy combo and change my mindMother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

So, I'm back for another month, hoping this will be the one. I used to think I'd hate to be pregnant in the summer (especially very pregnant) and that I'd much rather have a newborn in the winter months. This is still true, but of course, I don't really care. I obsess over what my EDD would be each month, and giving birth in March sounds pretty good. Crossing my fingers for this month.Sylvie & Hazel & Nora & Alice & SophieHenry & Rowan & Milo & Oliver & Ezra
