1) How long have you been TTC or NTNP (or both, in my case)

2) Have you done anything to prepare for your little bundle-to-be? (some might see it as tempting fate, but I like to keep myself busy)


For me, we have been NTNP for I would say 6mos, and last month we truly tried for the first time.

Some might think I'm nuts, but I couldn't help it! I have already thought of names, and I have begun sewing little things---I found a very cute and practical pattern for reusable baby wipes.

Off to bed with me....I have a splitting headache

I've been TTC since October 2012, seriously charting and using OPKs the last 2 cycles. I have names picked out. And I'm a pinterest junkie so I've been pinning like crazy for the future little one. I also am a huge bargain hunter/couponer so I buy things when I find a super good deal. I've biught a nursing cover, a car seat cover set and sling/carrier.

1.) Been trying since August 2011

2.) Can't prepare as we don't know if IVF will work and we may have to go the adoption route.

1) How long have you been TTC or NTNP (or both, in my case) We NTNP'd from December 2011 to March 2012, then TTC'd from March to now. But since I'm still doing all the things I was doing while we were NTNP.. we just say we've been TTC.

2) Have you done anything to prepare for your little bundle-to-be? (some might see it as tempting fate, but I like to keep myself busy) Nope. I don't believe in it.

Been TTC since June 2012, but wasn't able to pin down when I was ovulating until last cycle. Things have been much more serious since then.

I haven't done anything baby specific to prepare . . . but I changed my life to make it baby-friendly. December 2011, I left my crazy job that didn't leave much personal time for a 9 to 5 job doing what I love. DH and I also sold our tiny condo and bought a house. Just waiting on that baby to fill it with

We have done things around our house to make it baby friendly but this is not just for our potential future little one - We watch our nephew regularly and all our friends have babies so it just makes everything easier.

We have been TTC since I came off of the BCP in Dec. I was feeling pretty disheartened last cycle because it was anovulatory and felt like it lasted foooorrreeevvvveerrr.

We haven't done much to prepare for baby yet. I have been nannying and babysitting for years, so I have an idea of what we would need to do. We talk here and there about our philosophies about raising kids and what we might do differently than those we know.

Hi ladies!

We just decided over the past week that we would do NTNP for a month or so until we actively try. So technically the answer is about a day, LOL.

I was going to start some things around the house that we need to do. We have a three BR but if we have a baby our guest room will be the baby's room and the third room needs to be completely re done. It is hideous and has holes in the walls etc from when this house was a rental. I suppose that since I will be doing the drywall, priming and painting I should do it before being pg.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!

1) How long have you been TTC or NTNP (or both, in my case): We have been TTC for less than a month. I've been taking my BBT in the morning, but I'm not really charting anything else, so maybe I am more NTNP at this point. I'm going to go with TTC because I really want to get pregnant, and I will probably start charting if it doesn't happen in a few months.

2) Have you done anything to prepare for your little bundle-to-be? (some might see it as tempting fate, but I like to keep myself busy): I've read What to Expect When You're Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, and What to Expect the Toddler Years. I'm also taking prenatal vitamins.

2) Have you done anything to prepare for your little bundle-to-be? (some might see it as tempting fate, but I like to keep myself busy): We have a rattle that we bought because it was just too cute. And then I have some pregnancy/labor books, but no baby books yet.

1) How long have you been TTC or NTNP? I came off BCP July 2011 and we started ttc right away. I'm currently on cycle #20, were having a few months of NTNP at the moment as were at the stage of starting MA and my due date wouldve coincided with our wedding in november. Hardest decision we've msde in a long while and I harder one to live through but we know deep down it was best for us right now

2) Have you done anything to prepare for your little bundle-to-be? Not really, I've lost around 30lbs weight in order to meet the NHS funding requirements for fertility treatment but otherwise nothing, don't want to jinx fate

oh yeah, I've got those books too---the bindings are quite worn on the preggers book---I also subscribed to a prego magazine---just something else to keep me occupied
