Does TTC affect other areas of your life? Yes. I do not drink and am limiting caffeine throughout my cycle. It is also something I talk about with MIL and SIL. And I struggle when I see pregnant women when we are out. I try not to let it keep me from doing anything but I am very careful when I am in the tww.
Does your dh keep up with your cycle? to a certain extent. He does not want to know when I am ovulating.
Thank you so much Bokkechick for the perfect siggie!!!
Does TTC affect other areas of your life? Yes. I'm obsessed with getting pregnant again and having a hard time seeing or hearing about kids right now. I'm spending a lot of time on JM. I also have changed eating habits and vitamins to get pregnant again and give me the best chances of having a healthy pregnancy as I possibly can.
Does your dh keep up with your cycle? Kind of. He doesn't ask me, but he's interested in hearing about where I am and what's going on with my body as long as I don't talk about it too much.
Does TTC affect other areas of your life? Yes! Sometimes good & sometimes bad. Does your dh keep up with your cycle? A little... he knows when we should BD. Do your kids (if you have other kids) know you are ttc? Our DD is 2 so she doesn't understand it. Also I don't think I would feel her in on it even if she would.
Does TTC affect other areas of your life?Yes it can and once I start back at school it will probably make me less focused on my school work and more on TTC. Does your dh keep up with your cycle? No but I do tell him when AF is coming and usually tell him after I ovulate that I already ovulated. Do your kids (if you have other kids) know you are ttc? Sort of. Ava is only 4 so she doesn't really understand but she sees me taking my OPK tests and she knows we are trying to have a baby but she really doesn't understand it all.

Does TTC affect other areas of your life? Limiting coffee and alcohol. Spending time on JM, talking obssesively with those who listen, chart stalking , trying to take better care of myself, taking vitamins
Does your dh keep up with your cycle? sometimes. I tell him when AF comes, he randomly sees OPKs on the bathroom counter and I suppose he is kind of tipped off when we switch to Preseed or to the reg lube.
Do your kids (if you have other kids) know you are ttc? DD who is 2 1/2 doesn't quite get it. She will give baby dolls and say "Here is a baby mommy" and sometimes she will pat my belly. After I had the m/c I told her the baby was too sick and went to heaven. And the she would say "The baby went to Kevin." It was pretty cute in such a time of sorrow.
Does TTC affect other areas of your life? Yes. I'm not much of a drinker to begin with, but I won't have anything now that we're trying. I also think about it a lot, obviously. I spend a lot of time getting my hopes up and then trying to reign them back in.
Does your dh keep up with your cycle? Nah. I don't think he's too interested.
Do your kids (if you have other kids) know you are ttc? Nope. He's a little too young to get it at this point.
Does TTC affect other areas of your life? Yes. I usually think all the time about what day of the cycle I am on and everytime I wipe when I am in the TWW I am looking for maybe some implantation bleeding. Everytime I get a twinge I overanalyze whether it could be a pregnancy sign. I am going to try really hard this time to not think about actively TTC and just BD around ovulation time and then after ovulation try to completely get it out of my mind for two weeks. I honsetly think the stress of TTC prevents us from TTC so I try hard not to think about it.
Does your dh keep up with your cycle? No
Do your kids (if you have other kids) know you are ttc? he is too young to understand but it was cute one time after peeing in a cup a lot for OPKS, I went pee but didn't grab for my cup and he said "Mommy but don't you need your cup" I think he is getting old enough now that maybe I need to start keeping him out of the bathroom when I pee or shower.
It totally effects my life! I feel like its all I think about....all my decisions are based around a possible pregnancy....dh keeps up with my cycle better than I do...I think he likes to prepare for the BD...or something...who knows!?!? My DS now knows I'm tryin to have a baby...he's the main reason I started trying....he wants a brother...I want to give him a sister.
Does TTC affect other areas of your life? yes, I think in a way it effects every aspect of my life
Does your dh keep up with your cycle? not really. He doesn't want to know because he gets nervous and has a harder time preforming under pressure
Do your kids (if you have other kids) know you are ttc? no, he's too young to understand
