Hello, I'm new to this discussion board and thought I'd introduce myself! My name is Tiffany and my husband and I have been ttc now for 5 consecutive months but have been off of birth control for 1 year. We tried for a few months last fall but took the winter off. The reason we did that is b/c we're both teachers and don't have to work summers so we felt a summer baby would work out well with our planning. We finally decided to stop trying to control things and let nature take its course. We haven't had any luck yet but there are a few things we're doing to pinpoint ovulation to increase our chances. I recently started charting my basal body temperatures, checking cervical mucus and using an ovulation microscope. We just celebrated our 3rd anniversary yesterday and will be heading to Mexico next week to relax! I'm looking forward to learning from you ladies and sharing our experiences. I'm in need of support and ready to give support as well! Sorry my intro is so long but the more info you have on me the more advice you'll be able to give and vice versa! Baby Dust to all of us #1!
I'm new as well, but this seems like a great place to get support and share experiences. Good luck.
