Thread: Ttc 2020!

  1. #31
    @alsp I totally understand where you're coming from. My doctor told me that I could afford to lose weight before we started trying. It honestly stung a little bit, but I knew that one year ago was not the right time and I was not a healthy person. I decided to go vegan after killing myself in the gym and eating healthy and not seeing any significant results in weight loss. I lead a very busy lifestyle right now. I work full-time, go to graduate school and work at an internship after my full-time job. So, I don't have time to work out with working 13-hour days every day of the week. So, I was one of those "un-healthy vegans" who was eating all the processed foods thinking I was being healthier but I wasn't! Now, I'm trying a more whole-foods plant-based diet and I feel great! I allow myself to have some cheat meals every once and a while but during the week I stick mostly to that and I feel great! Not sure if I've made a huge improvement according to the scale but I've only been doing that for one month! I have noticed changes to my physical body like my hips being smaller and stomach as well haha AND most importantly I feel more positive, happy and healthy than I ever did before! I'm wondering if you would be interested in giving it a try! If not, that's okay too! It's not an easy transition, and I certainly never want to preach to anyone about what is right and wrong when putting food into your body! I am not a nutritionist by any means! But I thought understanding where you're coming from and sharing my experience could help you too! Best of luck to you! You can do this! Remember it's the journey not a race! I get jealous seeing people post their pregnancy announcements all the time, so I understand that! It will happen!

    A quick hello here. We aren't TTC until December 2020 because of me starting a new job and wanting our first almost potty trained before trying for another. I will be popping in and out for now but good luck to all you ladies. Baby dust to all!!

    Congratulations!! So exciting!! first BFP of the thread, I hope you keep us posted. Best wishes for your pregnancy.

    And thank you for your advice, I'm actually trying to eat whole-foods and mostly plant based.. problem is I cheat a lot. I have a tendency to be quite inactive and eat a lot... but I'm trying to do my best and recently joined a swimming class and started to walk a lot. I completely understand you regarding the job issues, my job is really demanding and I work long hours even in the weekends, so I'm really tired when I get home and just want to watch Netflix and eat, and also basically I'll have to spend all of my salary on child care when I have a baby.

    Work and family balance is a real challenge, I know many of you face these same problems.

    *Edit: one question momberries... what's in your opinion the best brand of ovulation tests?

    I think I'm ready to join this thread now...

    I have a son from a previous marriage, and SO and I have one son together. Our little Barnabas is about 3,5 months old. We'd like to try for at least one more baby, and we don't want the age gap to be too big, so we're planning on starting TTC around April 2020, when Barnabas is 6 months old.

    @Kibby, Good luck on your interviews, Hopefully this new job is less stressful. I'm thinking about changing jobs too, but with my honeymoon booked in mid April, and TTC I'm not sure if now is a great time.

    @sintrocaso Congratulations!

    I just finished my first spontaneous period after getting off my birth control in December. I've been on the pill for a while so I wasn't sure how long it was going to take by body to regulate. I got my first period in 31 days so that was good. I assume this first few periods may be a little hectic. My doctor said after my first period I am good to go to TTC so I guess were officially trying. I have an app on my phone called Flo which I really like so far which helps me kind of keep track where I should be in my cycle. Does anyone else use any apps?

    I should ovulate next weekend sometime which would be nice as I have a 3 day weekend from work so hopefully that should be perfecting timing.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Alyssa, mommy to Konrad (6) and Louisa (3). I got pregnant with my kiddos on the first try, both times. But, my husband and I have been trying since October 2017 for a third. We got pregnant this past May, only to miscarry in July at almost 12 weeks We named our little babe Hugo Wolfgang.

    I honestly hesitated to join this forum... I've been part of the TTC 2018 and 2019 groups and the thought of joining another one was just frustrating and felt hopeless. So in the meantime I decided to try some new things in 2020 (some new bloodwork and a friend suggested acupuncture - highly recommend!) and got a very surprising BFP last night!

    So I guess I'm here because I need some support - I'm super nervous because my BFP was just a faint positive at 14 dpo. I feel like it should be pretty dark by now. I'd appreciate any prayers/positive vibes!
