Where are the long-timers?

  • I lurk from time to time still. But honestly, my TTC days such are distant memory (we started TTC in 2004 and got pregnant in 2005) that I can't recall my dose of Clomid or how many hours post trigger we inseminated! :)  Even stuff like naps/bottl

  • I lurk mainly just to keep up with my moderator duties - lol!  I just don't have a ton of time to post and my posting on 'the other' board has slowed too.  I hardly remember TTC even though we just did the second round only 6 months ago.  <
