Intro - from Canada — The Bump
International Bumpies

Intro - from Canada

Hello! Technically not a bumpie yet, but I wanted to introduce myself since there are so many Canadians on here. 

DH and I got married in 2011,  we've been together for 6 years. I'm 28, he's 29. We have two furbabies, a boxer and a mutt. We are going to TTC in July after we go on a long vacation in June. We've been charting for 30 cycles TTA (successfully) and are almost ready to flip the switch. 

Living in Calgary, AB for the past 6 years, we both come from small towns.  

Re: Intro - from Canada

  • Hello and welcome! I'm in your general vicinity, and a sucker for boxers. There are quite a few Canucks on Parenting. And some that don't have kids yet. You're welcome to come join us, we're a warped bunch.

    Oh, I'm a tad older than you, live south of the city, work full time and commute in. Married for eons and the rug rats are in my siggy.

    Enjoy your June vacation. Oh, a random tidbit - Calgary's birth rate is highest 9 months from Stampede. Good luck!

    Yes, my SIL told me that. We're hoping to avoid TTC in July and go for August/September instead. lol Foothills hospital told SIL she was lucky she delivered when she did as they wouldn't have been able to keep her as long if her daughter was a stampede baby. (She was IVF)

  • Good call! Foothills is busy at the best of times. I've done 3 of the 5 there, and 2 in HR. But if she was IVF I can see going there, the specialists are fantastic. My mom used to work L & D there, it could get a bit hairy at times. I've experienced it. Good thing I was okay with checking out early the third go around, I swear they were stacking up in the hall.

    My plan is to go to the South Campus when the time comes way down the road haha. It's way closer for us.

    Dang, you're closer than you think! Hopefully they'll have all the wards open and running by then, if not, I highly recommend HR, very impressed there. Lots of former Foothills nurses and skilled. And good docs too. Getting ahead of you though!

    Bluenoser - GBS, I keep meaning to say I love them in your siggy! I've been a couple of times to see them.

    I've seen them twice here. They are awesome!!

    Ah GBS.  Excellent music.  They were here once but I wasn't able to go.  I was bummed.

    To OP: I am Albertan, a bit north (by a lot) of you, but I have a lot of family & friends in Calgary.  We are planning a week there in July because my cousin is getting married and there are quite a few people we want to see so it just made sense to stay for a week.

    Would you have time for a gtg? C_mo was talking about coming down too, and if we can talk Hester into it, she might too, her dad is local.

    Are you asking me or OP? Embarrassed

    Dhviel. But it's pretty much an open invite to the somewhat regulars. Choicesmommy on special needs also said she's in too. If you're already in town I think there are a few of us that can test the waters with coffee. I'm there everyday for work!

    We can try. We haven't solidified our plans yet, but we are getting there on the 1st, the wedding is on the 6th, and we are leaving on the 8th.
