I guess this is as good a place as any for my first post here.

How many months TTC #1? We decided to start trying this month, but I'm pretty sure it was too late to conceive (around CD 17 or 18), so I guess next month will be our first month. I've been off the pill since April

What does your member name mean? Dobler...as in Lloyd Dobler. Say Anything is my most favorite movie ever.

Do you have any phobias? needles....getting blood drawn. Gotta get over that one soon.

What is your biggest pet peeves? when people make excuses instead of fixing the problem.

Would you prefer to live in an urban, suburban, or rural area; and why? suburban cause that's where I grew up and live now.

How old is your dh/so? DH is 28

Did your parents name you after anyone? Ruth my middle name was my great-grandmother's name

How often do you call your parents? At least 3 times a week...sometimes more

How many brothers and sisters do you have? 1 brother, 1 sister

What are your parents names? Charley & Linda

What is one interesting thing about yourself that we don't already know? Well, since this is my first post, no one knows me....so there's lots to pick from. I guess the thing people are most surprised to find out about me is that I'm a HUGE HUGE HUGE baseball fan...Go Cards!!
