Hey ladies....it has been a long time since I have written a topic post I mostly lurk and keep up with the bfp and chart stalking threads. But I miss having my sisters to lean on...so I am ready to come back.

There are a lot of new faces...so for those of you who I don't know...I'm Stef DH and I have been TTC our first since 2008. We have tried different things our next step was MA but DH was laid off and we haven't had the money to continue with MA. We have been trying on our own since.

Updates on us....

Good news...DH received a job offer....bad news...it is in Dallas I love Dallas, we lived there before but I really don't want to leave my school in the middle of the year so he will probably get an apartment there and we will see each other on the weekends until we can figure something out. The contract is only for 2 years...so we don't know if we want to sell the house and move everything for just 2 years....so we shall see.

Im still teaching...I love my kids this year...I only have one prep and it is wonderful!!!

On the TTC front...we have been DTD when we fill like it and I have been using OPKs but TTC was NOT a focus for us at all...until now. With him moving to Dallas and me in Austin...I told him I want to move on to MA. I went to my ob/gyn to have some test done and I will call to set up an appointment with my RE to get the ball rolling. I started temping again to better track my cycle and have something to take to my RE in a couple months.

Well, that is about it. I cannot wait to get caught up on all my sisters and I look forward to getting to know all the new faces.

Of course you can come back!!! I'd be if you didn't!!
So happy to see your face again Steph!!! As you can see, I'm still tryin' for that BFP. Still going the TCM route... although I'm down to herbs only right now since we're moving in 16 days. I'll be starting up with a new Dr. once we're all moved in...

So glad to hear Scott found some work! It sucks that you'll be apart, we've done that before, but at this point, it's better than nothin'!! Hopefully you guys will get a feel for what may come so you're not living with one foot in two different cities, ya know?

for having a chart to stalk!! Looks like you should be getting your CH's tomorrow!!

Be sure to let us know when your RE appt. is!!!!

YAY!!! Welcome back! I'm with Nikki...doing more like you are doing, BD when we feel like it, OPKs when I feel like it. I think we're about ready to move on to the RE route as well.

So glad to have you back!

Welcome back! I am sorry that you had to come back here though and not on to a DDC. I have been lurking as well for a while. So many new girls that seem to come and go it is just hard to build that bond with them, so its good to see a famaliar face!! Hopefully MA will be your answer and if you end up in Dallas soon and I can help you out with some of the Dr's here. I have interviewed a couple! lol

I see that Kate has beat me to the punch in asking what part of Dallas! She's on one end, I'm on the other (Elle, I'm not sure where you are) so between the 3 of us, I'm sure we could get you set up with good doctors here if you moved!

I'm glad that things are looking up financially and I'm hoping and praying that you get your really soon!!!!!!!

Stef! Welcome back. I mostly lurk anymore but I think Im about ready to plunge back in. I'm so excited you're taking the MA route!

If you did decide you wanted to move have you thought about renting out your house? You could rent it on a two year lease and then see if that job turns permanent or not...

I know where north park is...dh used to work over near there. We lived in Addison for awhile and I loved it there. It would be sooooo much fun for everyone to get together!
