Well, I'm not officially TTC until August (for no particular reason, I just thought it would be cool to "kick things off" on my birthday) but I am trying to pay more attention to my cycles so it will make things easier when the time comes. I've never really paid attention to when I ovulate or ovulation symptoms, but the past few months I have been totally *aware* of ovulation. My breasts get sore and tingly, my face and lips are suddenly bright pink/red, I get overheated and clammy. I don't know if it's suddenly so obvious because I'm paying attention or has my body chemistry changed? Does anyone else know they are ovulating by certain symptoms?My cherished daughter, Rowan Jane. ~b. 10/2011~

@RGE - I experience ovulation pain, which is a sharp stabbing pain in my side at time of ovulation. Until a few months ago, I had no idea what this pain was! A few times (over the years) it's been so bad I thought I had appendicitis! But that's my only noticeable symptom.TTC #1

@alzora, I could talk about adoption all day too. I wish it was still a viable option for us. The requirements for NZ are so strict, we can only adopt from certain countries and Albania isn't even on the list. I would be concerned about RAC too. Having raised a child from newborn it does scare me to think of how much orphanage kids miss out on in those early months and years. That is what would make me want a child as young as possible. However, I follow quite a few international adoption blogs and there are so many happy endings out there, even with older kids. I am a bit frustrated that my DH only wants two kids (he has been very open about that, ever since we met, so I can't begrudge him much for it) so if we have another bio child my adoption dreams may be at an end. I still hold out hope, though, lol. My sister is also going through fostering training soon, which I may do in the future. Would you complete a home study at least, so that you could get started? You could potentially do both at the same time - go through the adoption process while TTC. Depends how you and your husband feel about the possibility of two little ones within a short space of time, though.
@vitamom, massive congrats! Such lovely news, I am so happy for you.
I still have virtually no CM, I was expecting to ovulate yesterday-ish so am getting pretty frustrated and annoyed. I know I've had watery and EW CM before so not sure what is up now I am actually TTC. Grrr, body.... Do what I want you to do!
As a purely nosey question - so feel free not to answer! - How many children do you all plan on having? Our next baby will likely be our last but I would have one more if it was just up to me.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

Thank you so much everyone!!
@alzora, this was the third month of actively "trying". So, relatively fast. But DD #2 took 10 months and one chemical pregnancy to conceive. I was diagnosed with a thyroid disorder early on in that pregnancy (hashimoto's) and they were surprised I was able to conceive at all. Thankfully, I did and things went smoothly; hopefully this will be a smooth one too!
