Thread: Ttc 2020!

  1. #21
    So I was hoping not to have to join this thread, but another cycle down and no luck. Hi everyone! I'm feeling quite bitter at the moment, but with a slight hope that 2020 is our year. We've been TTC our second for 15 months (our first took 12 months).

    Hi everyone,

    I've been reading nameberry for years and can't believe it might be time to join this thread! I'm 32 and my husband is 39, so we feel the need to get started on babies soon. I've been baby crazy for years but recently started a new job and got married. I feel more fulfilled than I have in years and am suddenly hesitant to possibly sidetrack my career and send 2/3 of my salary to childcare expenses. It's scary to think about changing things now (sounds like we are in similar spots @kiriko!). But of course we aren't getting any younger.

    In the mean time I was wondering if anyone has dealt with a job where there is no clear maternity leave policy. Most of my coworkers have children so I think my employer would be flexible, but it's a small business so people tend to have individual arrangements. I'm wondering when I should ask about options. Do it early or wait till I'm pregnant and make them deal with it?

    It will be a few months at least before we actually start trying, but I wanted to drop by and wish everyone luck for 2020!

    @lilimorgana - I absolutely remember you I'm happy to be back in the TTC group with you again, I hope neither of us stay in here too long!

    @katinka - I'm definitely feeling confident this time around, that the pregnancy when it happens will be successful and healthy. All of the tests after the miscarriages came out clear and there's no reason we shouldn't be able to experience a healthy pregnancy. I've lost a ton of weight, and the fertility specialist said that with the amount I lost, I have lowered my risk of another loss by 30/40% so that alone makes me feel a bit safer in trying again.

    My first real update for 2020 - First cycle was a no-go. But I was expecting that, my fertile window was plagued by this awful cold, that's still hanging on! We only managed to have sex once during my fertile period, so it was a long shot, and badly timed. My cycle has started over today and I plan to start up my temping and such again tomorrow morning. I'm avoiding taking ovulation tests this time, as I know my cycle fairly well and don't want to start obsessing over lines on sticks early on. I wanted to take a relaxed approach to TTC this time around, but quickly learned that that's not possible for me, no matter what I'm going to obsess over every little thing in the TWW and that's just me, and that's okay. I'm hoping we conceive as quickly and easily as we have in the past, I'm not sure how much mental energy I have for this game!

    @katinka - Thanks hun!! Any chance we’ll be seeing you on here for #4??


    How is everyone doing? Quiet around here, I’ll happily keep the thread going on my own but if l had some company I wouldn’t complain!
    I’m just entering “baby week” here, we can try tonight, then not again until Thursday, Fiancé is still on shift work and isn’t in town from Monday til Thursday night. We might miss the window this month *♀️ Maybe not though, I’m really not sure when I’m going to ovulate. My cycles have been much shorter than usual, 24/25 days instead of 28/29, I’m worried my luteal phase might be too short right now. It’ll be interesting to see when I ovulate this week. I’m not temping as I’d hoped, my BBT thermometer died. Trying digital OPKs just to see.
    But, I applied for a job on a whim, and they’ve pushed me through to the third stage of the interview process already. I don’t know what to do! If we end up pregnant quickly it’s not the best time to change jobs. But my current job is so stressful and I am exposed to chemicals that aren’t great for TTC or pregnancy. I really want to just jump and see where it goes but at the same time....

    @kibby Erm...... NO. Haha, three is keeping me busy enough right now!

    Very best of luck with the job interview (and the TTC, of course!) That sounds really exciting, and you must be a good fit for the role if they're moving you through the process that quickly. If you dislike your current job, surely you have nothing to lose in at least going through the process, then you can decide whether or not to accept any offer you might get. Sounds like a fantastic opportunity!

    @kibby Hey! I'm usually around, I can keep you company, haha. Good luck with the TTC and the job--it sounds like they like you and it would be a good opportunity for you so definitely worth seeing what happens!

    We are decided that we'll go ahead with a fourth and final baby, but still a bit undecided as to when we'll start to TTC. There's been a lot going on here lately with various things, originally we had said January, then maybe February, but it might even be later than that. But at least I know we're a go, the not knowing was driving me crazy! Hopefully I can get my ducks in a row soon and we can get on with things!

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm 27 years old and my husband is 29! We're in our first month of trying, which has been a great opportunity for me to get to understand and learn all about my body and what's involved in the TTC process! We're hoping our frequent baby dancing has paid off. I should know within the next week! Cross your fingers for me that we've conceived this go-around. However, if we didn't that's okay too! I'm not getting discouraged so quickly as I have a better understanding of what to do and look for now! Wish us luck! Hoping to see a BFP!

    Crossing my fingers to all of you who are already trying, I hope many healthy babies are born by 2021
    Best of luck sintrocaso!!

    As for me, I am still not losing weight at the pace I would like to... I have not quit smoking either, but I am optimistic that I will have everything ready to start TTC by the time August come. Anyone else waiting a few months for health reasons?
    Lot of people around me are getting pregnant and is hard.. a few weeks ago I couldn't help myself and bought a couple of baby girl pieces of clothes lol
