    Oh, hai!

    1) I'm a month and four days older than DH; we're both 25. My GF is 19.

    2) We've been TTC for less than two months. *TW* We were originally going to start trying this month, but I accidentally got KU (we literally BD twice, and he pulled out both times) in December. That was a CP, and I had another CP last month. */TW*

    3) I started off tracking AF, then added in CM. This cycle, I added in OPKs, and I'm glad I did! I Od super early this time around.

    4) Kids: I have one DS who turned two in December. Pet: I have one cat. She's less than a year old. She's all black, and I got her on Halloween. Job: I am a SAHM, and I own a very small knitting/crocheting business. Hobbies: Knitting, crocheting, snuggling with DS or therakitty, cleaning floors (for real, though).

  • Hi everyone,

    I've been lurking for the past few months, but I think it's time for me to start participating now.

    Ages (you and SO): I'm 33, he's 30.

    How many months have you been TTC? This is our 3rd month and 2nd cycle. *TW*I'm currently in the middle of a CP. Waiting for my HCG to drop to 0 so I can start a new cycle */TW*

    What are you doing to get knocked up (WAYDTGKU)? Temping, checking CM, PNVs, limiting alcohol and coffee, and I just bought some OPKs for the first time

    Tell us about yourself! (Kids, pets, job, hobbies, etc.) I'm in graduate school, and when I'm not working on my research, I like to cook.

    Hello all! I've been lurking for a bit and ready to join in. I was a June 2014 Momma on the boards and I'm looking forward to being in this wonderful community again

    Ages (you and SO): I'm 28 he is 30

    How many months have you been TTC? 1

    What are you doing to get knocked up (WAYDTGKU)? I had Mirena for 2 yrs, removed in Nov. 2016 and usued Nuva Ring until last month. Taking prenatals, limiting caffeine and alcohol, healthier diet, using the Fertility Friend app to find what exactly my regular cycle is. In the app I'm charting, tempting, using Clearblue digital OPK's, checking CM and having sex as often as possible when I get the green light. I got a positive OPK Monday so now the TWW begins.

    Tell us about yourself! (Kids, pets, job, hobbies, etc.) My husband of almost 6 years is a master mechanic for New Holland and I'm a Field Staff Court Designated Worker that travels doing Juvenile diversions. Hoping to come off the road Lord willing sooner than later if baby #2 comes along. We have a Shorkie Tucker who is 1 year 9 months and cat Pepper who is 6. Our son Baylor is 2 years and 9 months. I also run a small catering business on the side with my Momma.

  • **Lurking** @miranda&;MichaelR: did you maybe use an emoji from your phone in your original post? I think that can affect what text is shown.  
    Good luck and hope you have a short stay!

  • @miranda you may also want to go the the knot and update your username to one without an & symbol, too.  It looks like it's breaking the tags

    Me: 33 | DH: 40 ~ Married / NTNP #1: 05.30.2015 ~ TTC #1 November 2015

    5/16 - Began Creighton Method CM Tracking / Napro Fertility Medicine | Progesterone + various abx cycles - all BFNs
    8/16 - SHG: ute good, at least one tube open | Adrenal saliva test: chronic stress cortisol levels -> started adaptogens
    10/16 - azoo dx confirmed. more bw + TRUS to determine differential dx. 3/17 - genetic labs, renal & repeat scrotal u/s.
    No known genetic cause found. Vas tubes appear absent on repeat exam. DH started Clomid in prep for MESA/TESE
    4/17 - Initial RE Consult for me. | DH's F/U bw shows great T response! but also elevated FSH, making the possibility
    of a successful vas reconstruction less likely, IHHO. | Waiting for DH's exploratory/retrieval attempt till after 06/06/17.

  • @Knottie74091607 Welcome! One quick suggestion - if you are planning on being involved in the discussions, you may want to consider logging into the knot and changing your user name. It's really hard to tag and to recognize people when they are just knottie***** :)
