  • @ellie929 Please do tell us about your craft brewery. How cool! DH home brews and we love craft beer. About the holiday movies, have you watched Christmas Prince on Netflix yet? It's so terrible and cheesy but I still loved watching it.

  • @ellie929 that’s really awesome that you have your own craft brewery! DH and I have never tried home brewing but we’re big craft beer fans! We have a lot of new breweries opening around us and we visited a lot of great ones when we were on vacation in the Finger Lakes a few months ago. I’m a big fan of sours!

  • @ellie929 very cool about running a brewery. I'm from Oregon and home brewing is huge here.  I'm really into sour beers, but from what friends have told me,  you need an entire system dedicated to making them

    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.

  •   I was planning to start TTC this month, but unfortunately was potentially exposed to Zika last month, so I have to wait 2 months before we can actually start, so I figured I'd introduce myself and start looking around on the board.

    Ages (you and SO): Me-35, DH-39

    How many months have you been TTC? Not started yet.

    What are you doing to get knocked up (WAYDTGKU)? Using condoms right now :-( but I'm also taking PNV and using a fertility tracker/temps just so I can be even more prepared once I can.

    Tell us about yourself! (Kids, pets, job, hobbies, etc.) DH and I are both in the military.  We have a 14 month old daughter and two cats.

    Sorry to hear about the Zika virus exposure...hopefully these next two months will go fast for both of us. We are going to start TTC Feb/March. 
  • @JaJuanY was it just you that was exposed? If your DH was exposed to, you may need to wait longer :grimace:

  • Ages (you and SO): Both 27

    How many months have you been TTC? None. We will probably start this cycle or after the holidays. I’ve been out of the game, but i don’t know if you would call it benched or NTNP. Possible TW: After my son was born I had debilitating anxiety and I was on a med that was a Pregnancy D class so we were avoiding for obvious reasons.

    What are you doing to get knocked up? I track my cycles, look for ovulation signs and take prenatals. 

    Tell us about yourself! (Kids, pets, job, hobbies, etc.) I have a 2 year old son and a 13 year old black lab. I’m a music teacher. I don’t really have any hobbies, but I like puzzles.
