Trying to Get Pregnant

Ready to leave my lurking days behind!

Howdy Ladies-

I have been a lurker for quite a few months now. As of this week my DH & I are officially joining the ranks of TTC! I have already learned so much from this board, I'm excited to start joining in on some conversations. 

I am 28 and my DH is 35. We were just married in January but have had serious talks about starting a family from the moment we started dating. We are super excited (and just a little nervous!) to get this ball rolling. We have many friends who have had some difficulty getting pregnant so we know this may take some time, but I am cautiously optimistic. 

I took my Nuva Ring out the first day of our honeymoon, 10 weeks ago. I have read TCOYF, went through all the FF tutorials and have been charting since going off BC. My first cycle I was a little freaked out because my Luteal Phase was only 9 days. I chalked it up to post BC issues and it does seem to be getting longer. 

I'm excited to start sharing this journey with y'all. We aren't telling anyone we are trying, so I'm sure I'll be turning here for lots of support. Hope this wasn't too much info for an intro post!
