Re: TTC Box Swap

  • Okay I think I have everyone, if I managed to forgot someone I apologize its been a busy morning.  

    @ADRIANAC1982 & @APM_SLP (are you still in?)

    @katymarie101  & @jwg9101

    @caseyw8784  & @bells52000  

    @ReesaAnne16 & @madasm0530

    @Kp214 & @srh18

    @LuluMurph & @joneser1281

    Hope this works for everyone! Each pair can message one another and make arrangements for their swap! I was thinking 2 weeks should be a good enough deadline to mail out the packages! 

    Have fun, and enjoy this little TTC project! Hope these boxes bring smiles to everyones faces!!

    I'm in!!! 

    Im Andrea, 35 (I feel like I'm 25!!!) and I live just outside of San Francisco.  

    Recently did our first round of IVF due to MFI and have one, but more likely 2 , blocked tubes.  Fresh transfer just ended in a CP and we will be going straight to a FET sometime next month.  

    About me... I'm a speech therapist and work with adults in the healthcare world.  DH is a sheriffs deputy.  I am obsessed with my dog who is 5 lbs of fluff- definitely treat him like my baby!! I love animals in general and am a vegetarian because of that.  We are doing major home construction right now- I love decorating and am having fun picking out all the details! Into health and fitness, love yoga, Pilates, the gym etc. Love wine and wine tasting, SF Giants baseball, country music and FOOD!

  • My swap buddy, @LuluMurph and I have touched base... Going to start looking for goodies this weekend... I just started back to work this week, so things are a bit hectic for me right now.  I can't wait for things to settle down and just be in a routine.  I feel like I don't have much time to post lately, but I am still reading posts when I have a minute... Even if I can't write it at the time, I'm constantly thinking of everyone and sending good thoughts.  <3

  • @Kp214 Yes, I do teach.  Wow, you already started last Wednesday?  I thought we went back early!  Other districts close to mine don't start until next Monday.  I don't know about you, but I'm always so beat these first few weeks.  There's no AC in my classroom, so between the kids and the heat, I am near dead by the end of each day in the beginning, haha.  Sidenote, my RE says she sees lots of teachers... I am not surprised!  I think work stresses me out often so that doesn't help our baby situation.

  • @joneser1281 wow!  No ac?  That is awful!  I completely get being tired the first few weeks.  I was just telling a colleague today that we need to plan a get together with some of the others to celebrate surviving the first couple of weeks.  She said we need to make sure there's alcohol wherever we go.  I agreed and then was tyring to figure out how to order something nonalcoholic if we do.

  • @Kp214 I know... Today the thermometer in my room said 86.  :(  So miserable!  I probably drank 5 - 6 bottles of water and hardly had to go to the bathroom at all.  Oh I agree... It's a must to celebrate surviving the first few weeks.  It's so funny... I don't think I know one teacher who doesn't drink, haha!  Bummer that you have to order something nonalcoholic... I have several more weeks before AF will arrive, so although I'm not going to go crazy, I am definitely going to have a drink or two!  I'm trying to limit it only to social gatherings (when I have reason to drink)... Like we have a bday party to go to tomorrow.  If I'm just hanging out at home, I'm going to keep it nonalcoholic.

  • I just had orientation today! I run it, so let's just say I am relieved! Our Ac was knocked out from a flood this summer.  It was in the 90s in the office everyday.  I don't have a window! The Ac is on now and I will never complain I am too cold!  Good luck with your school years!  I find out tomorrow if I get to try to transfer next week and if so it will be on my make up orientation! Yikes! Will figure it out after it is real...

    Alright my turn:

    Age 28

    Cincinnati, Ohio

    Where you are in the process, Medicated Cycle, TI, IUI, IVF, FET etc: iui #2, letrozole 7.5mg, Ovidrel trigger. (Did iui on 09/01/16) 

    Hello, DH and I met online through plenty of fish just when I was loosing all hope. Things moved quickly with us.... First date 01/05/15, moved in 03/2015, will you/yes 07/06/15, I DO 04/23/16. I've never been so sure about anything as sure as I am that he was made for me. I have PCOS, I figured we would have to have some assistance but I don't think I was ready for all this and the emotions that come with it. We are now on #2 and I feel better this round. I'm a waitress at a restaurant that I have been at for 6 years, DH worked for Larosas for 13.5 years but just switched to Amazon's return department right before we got married. Time is moving so quickly, I can't believe it is already September and we have now been married for 4 months. We love going to our local park and feeding the ducks and fish, taking long drives and trying different Italian restaurants. We have 3 cats...15yrs, 7yrs and 3yrs. DH is a big Cincinnati Bengals fan. I love crafting, Pinterest is a serious addiction over here. 


    Looking forward to finding a box swap buddy.

    @JAH87 the way your relationship progressed sounds so similar to mine!  DH and I met online through christianmingle, moved in together after dating several months, became engaged 9 months into the relationship, and married 11 months after meeting.  You and @Joslynj11 may want to pair up.

  • @Kp214 our friends who we are going to see in 2 weeks live in South Carolina and they met on Christian mingle. 

    @Joslynj11 want to be box swap buddies? 
    Joslynj11
  • Everyone should post a picture of the boxes they receive. This is really such a fun idea. 
  • Posting pics of the boxes would be awesome! @MMD1986 don't post mine if it doesn't look
    pretty. I'm not super good at crafts but I can shove things in a box!! Lol! 

    My DH and I have a similar love story! We actually met at a wedding, he was best man and I was step sister of the bride. 2 months later we moved in, engaged at 7 months, and married on our 1 year anniversary. We're coming up on our one year in October. It's a fast love story but it's ours and I wouldn't trade it for the world. He always love to tell me that "when you know, you know".
