TTC journey so far: Trying since Feb, just found out last month I have hypothyroidism so on meds & hoping!

If you could have anything for Christmas (other than the obvious bfp we all want) what would it be?: a craft table! I have a new silhouette cameo but its on a card table in the corner of what will be the nursery. This same card table also holds our computer and my sewing machine. So I asked for a Craft table with storage

TTC journey so far: We are currently into Month 12, the last one before we hit the dreaded 1 year mark. It's cycle... 14.

If you could have anything for Christmas (apart from the obvious bfp we all want) what would it be? : |A house. I think it'd make a huge difference in our lives, but at the moment, it's way out of our reach.

TTC journey so far: Not much! Just confirmed that we will be TTC in March and I'm coming off of the pill this month in preparation.

If you could have anything for Christmas (apart from the obvious bfp we all want) what would it be? :
I'm pretty content this year. But I did manage to kill my heart rate monitor a couple of weeks ago. So I guess I would be pretty happy to receive a new (and better) one.

TTC journey so far: I'm currently in the 2WW of cycle #40. This is round 2 of Clomid, first time on Clomid we did get the bfp but ended in a loss.

If you could have anything for Christmas (apart from the obvious bfp we all want) what would it be? We really don't even celebrate this holiday, I'm sure that will change when we have a child.

TTC journey so far: DH and I have been married a little over a year (dated for the 3 years prior), and originally wanted to wait some time (at least a year) before TTC. We started talking about it right before the year mark, decided I'd finish out my BC pills and stop them. Our first month TTC was October. Each month my cycle gets more and more regular (my luteal phase until last month was only 8-10 days). However, this month seems to be perfect. I've already gotten a positive OPK and I'm at CD13. FX that this is our month!

If you could have anything for Christmas (apart from the obvious bfp we all want) what would it be? : DH keeps asking me this and I just don't know! We just bought a house a couple months ago, so honestly just stuff to finish decorating probably. Really, after the year that we have had (moving multiple times, getting married, etc), I am beyond content to just be where we are now.

Hi Annie

to TTC#1! I'm Jen (26) one of the co-hosts of the board. I'm glad that your cycles seem to be straightening out and your luteal phase is improving, thats one of the issues some ladies have after being on BCP. I look forward to hearing from you on the board - here's some baby dust for you!

TTC journey so far: Came off birth control in April, was NTNP until August, now we are trying in earnest, plus with acupuncture. Just got a new herbal supplement from my acupunturist and I really like it.

If you could have anything for Christmas (apart from the obvious bfp we all want) what would it be? : Hmm. We're Jewish, so we did Hanukah already, but if it were anything (like anything) would be a bigger apartment in a nicer location, but still with the washer/dryer and dishwasher we have in this apt. A girl can dream, right?
