Ok Ok, Intro... And Fun Question

Allow myself to introduce... myself.

I guess if I'm going to post responses instead of continue to lurk I might as well introduce myself to you loverly ladies.  DH and I are 4 years married, after 5 years of dating.  I got off of BC the day we got married.  We've never TTC until literally just since my last cycle.  I'm pretty lazy about it right now.  Not actively tracking/charting/temping, but also not actively trying to keep from getting pregnant.  Essentially we're taking the lazy way for a little while.  I've read through the newb blog and still trying to grasp the acronyms.  I'm used to the Nest's acronyms, so the world of conception is lost to me (still trying to decipher 2ww - two week wait? two weeks after your ovulation til you can test?).  That being said, I'm a hypochondriac, so I'll keep all of my 'fymptoms' and stupidity to myself for a few months at the very least.  Just wanted to say halloo and let you know a little about me before you start to see my siggy more frequently.  Feel free to slap me about if I'm ever wrong.  I have little to no knowledge on TTC, so I'll do my best to keep my opinions to myself :)

And for my fun question:

If you conceive, how do you plan to tell your DH?  If you've conceived before, were you able to keep it a secret or did you scream like a maniac in the bathroom?

    I may have just spit taked a little.  I've taken an HPT before, and the end is kind of bristly.  I can just imagine shaking a freshly peed on stick in someone's face :)

    And now in addition, I need siggy help.  POS bahhh!


  • We have been TTC for 2 years and are starting our first IVF cycle. If I POAS at home, it will probably go something like this, ::shouts from bathroom:: "OMG I'M FUCKING PREGNANT!!!" If I wait for betas, it will probably involve a phone call from work, so less yelling and swear words.

    My heart is yours.

    Now please for the love of Gurd tell me how to update my siggy.  I'm dying :)


  • Although I can't see me being able to hold the news from him long enough, I'd love to give him the t-shirt I've been eyeing lately which says "I Make Adorable Babies" on it ;]

    Realistically, though, I'm sure it'll be a frantic phone call made to his work, lol

  • DD - We'd been trying for about a year, so I got all cute about it and had him hit play on an ipod that was cued up to the song lyric "then one night you came to me, tears in your eyes and and EPT."

    DS - We were sort of surprised this time and I came out of the bathroom and said "I guess we're doing this again?"

    Not the best stories, but I'll never forget them. :)

  • With ds1 it was Christmas morning and we were both up at 6am to start cooking. I came into the kitchen where DH was prepping a ham and told him I got a BFP. He gave me a high five.

    With ds2, I tested and when he came home from work I sheepishly told him "well that was quick". It was our first month trying. He was bummed because he wanted more sex out of the deal.

  • Welcome and happy humping!

    As for the fun question. First time, I told DH by vomiting in his lap at Texas Roadhouse. I had known for a few weeks, and he kept seeing more and more signs. Unlike others, it wasn't as happily greeted though 1) because of vomit 2) I was only 18.

    Second time, I waited until our first OB appt, I told him to drive me to the doctors because I thought I was sick, and when he saw the OBGYN sign, he asked me if my vagina was sick. Poor guy was like Sherlock Holmes trying to figure out what was wrong with my genitalia.  When they handed us all the booklets and stuff, that's when he added it together.

    Adorable, dumb little DH.

    Awww... next time I don't feel like doing something, I'm totally going to say my vagina is sick.


  • With DS, I tested at like 5 AM on a Saturday.  I made it a whole hour until I woke DH up.  The conversation went like this:

    Me: Guess what?
    Him:  You're pregnant?
    Me:  Yes!!!!!!!!!
    Him:  Awesome.  Can I go back to sleep now?

    With DD, I bought a big brother shirt for DS.

  • Hello! I"m a newb to this board too, so I guess I should intro myself at some point :)

    With DD, we were not exactly "careful" about TTA (trying to avoid) so when I charted my temp the morning after and it went the opposite direction I expected, we kind of figured there was a chance. I was in a little bit of denial, but DH was sure we had made a baby.. A few weeks later when "Aunt Flo" didn't show, I secretly bought a HPT and a week later, I couldn't hide it from him and awkwardly said one morning "So, I bought a pregnancy test."   Took it that morning and came out and said "well, I guess we will be renovating the nursery sooner than expected."
    It took a while to set in b/c we were not TTC, but we were definitely still happy.

    I actually thought I was preggo a week ago (we are kind of TTC again) and we bought a test at the store and was going to go take it and DH said "what, you're not going to be creative in telling me??" LOL didn't know he was so sentimental!
    Well, it was NEG (boo :( ) so I can be more secretive next time.  I was thinking of writing on my chalk-board mug "Have Another... you're going to need it"  so when he gets coffee in the morning he'll see it and have to put the clues together.  Is that lame??

    Also, on your siggy question - go to http://forums.thebump.com/profile/signature
    and click the < > image and add your source code.  Or if it's a pic, you can click the little pic image next to the hyperlink icon and add your pic's URL.  Then click the < > to make sure it showed up. That's where you add your ticker code, too.

    I took a test at 4am because I couldn't sleep.  I took a cheapie and then used a FRER when it came up positive.  I couldn't freaking believe it was positive so I ran outta the bathroom, flipped on the light and shoved the test in my DH's face.  
     
    Me:"Do you see two lines?!"  
    Him: "Yeah, why what does that mean?"  
    Me: "I'm pregnant!  Oh my God I'm pregnant!"
    Him: "Ew, did you pee on that?"

    I had plans to give him a wrapped onesie, which I did after the fact.  But I could not contain myself.
    Still laughing, this is totally something my husband would say. Love it!

  • We plan on trying in January of 2014 and i have already asked his grandma who is patiently awaiting this news, if she would make a mechanic coveralls onesie (my hubby is a mechanic for Ford) So i want her to make one just like it and wrap it and give it to him. He does not know about this plan so it will be a perfect moment.
