Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve?

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve?

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples?

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? Umm no one! I haven't told anyone I'm kinda scared to tell my parents, especially my dad he wouldn't be too happy since steven and I aren't married and i'm not outta school yet plus he wouldnt understand my reasonings. I want to tell my mom but I'm also afraid she'd support me and everything but how do I tell them! Umm a few friends know and possibly my one cousin but that's about it.

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? Well I knew it may take a while to conceive because I was on here a few months back when i thought I was pregnant and I saw posts of people that were ttc for months! So I wanted to start as early as I can

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? I wouldn't mind, nothing more than triplets because I think that would be too much..I would love to have twins that would be soo cool..I don't care I will be happy with whatever I get!

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? My MIL and that is it. And we plan on keeping it a secret until I am 3 months or more preggo.

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? I thought it would be right away. But I was wrong.

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? I would be soooo excited. I am kind a expecting that being on Clomid and stuff but we will see.

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? my Mom some cousins and friends but no one on DH family

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? I thought it was going to be soon maybe 3 months

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? we would be thrilled DH and I were talking about that last night and since we are going to start clomid as soon as I'm done with bcp we are hoping we get more than one, twins run in my family so its a possibility but 3 would be perfect

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? Too many people. The Dad knows. He actually said something really sweet about it, he asked how long we've actually been trying and I said like 5 months...and he was like, really? that long..don't people have "accidents" all the time? I thought that was funny. DH's mom knows...I wish she didn't. She pats my bellly sometimes and says, let's get something in there. really annoying.

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? I think I will have trouble...so I expect it to take a couple years.

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? Freak out! I already worry about where one baby will go (we have a one-bedroom condo) let alone more than one

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? Pretty much everyone knows. They have all been asking for years when we were going to start trying and I had always said about a year after I graduate. I don't talk about it much. Now if only I could get DH to stop talking about it to EVERYBODY

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to conceive? For some reason we kinda expected to have problems. Just the irony of doing everything right, waiting until we are ready for a baby, and then watching all the accidental pregnancies, and not willing or able to take care of kids people around just pop one after another out.

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? Depends on how many multiples. Twins or triplets I might be ok with. I would be scared and money would get very tight if I got put on bed rest since I am the bread winner in the house. More than that I don't know. DH and I have talked about it, and I don't know if we would reduce the number for the health of the remaining babies or not. It makes sense, but if we were faced with the actual decision I am not sure if I would be able to go through with it.

Oh and YEARS ago my dad had a dream that he was fishing with his triplet grandsons. My sister and I have been fighting over who is going to have to have those boys ever since then. I hope it is her.

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve?No one really....we're TTC ninja style

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve?
6 months, at most...here we are 18 months later

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? Praise God, and start saying some extra prayers. Clomid helps.,

My mom, Brother, Sister, SL and I think some cousins and aunts might just have guessed it. I have yet to tell my dad, or my hubbies fam.

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve?
I knew it would take a while because of my endometriosis but I thought for sure within a year... here I am at two years now =(

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples?
I would be THRILLED. With twins anyways... anything more i might feel a little intimidated and worried about the health risks for myself and the babies...but I would welcome them all with open arms =)

My mom and a couple of my cousins.

Oh gosh, a month MAYBE two. (Everyone else in my family is FERRRRRRRRRRRRRRTILE..guess I fell off that train ha ha).

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples?
After I went and picked my jaw up off the floor, I would probably freak out. I'd LOVE LOVE LOVE to have twins or triplets!!!!!!!!!!!

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve?EVERYONE knows. Even my grandparents, cousins, friends, clients and random people in my gym class

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve?I always knew it would take a while. I have always had a feeling that i will never have a baby.

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? I would be happy. We have tons of twins in my family. So does DH so maybe we will have twins.

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? My parents, my sister, DH's sister and some close friends I work out with.

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? Up to 6 months. I never thought it'd take us a year or more

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? I would probably freak out 2 would be ok, but more than that and I think I'd be terrified. You have to slow down enough with one baby inside of you. I can't imagine what it'd be like with more. Humans just aren't made to carry multiples.

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? Pretty much just my immediate family (dad, mom, sister, BIL, hubby, of course). MY BFF's know, several of my close co-workers

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? I expected it to take a while because of the PCOS. . . I feel like I have been expecting that for quite a while. I am just scared that I will never get the joy of feeling & experiencing pregnancy--I have always wanted that feeling. I never had the anxiety of being fat, body changes, etc.

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? Not too surprised as they run in both sides of my family and on my husband's side. However, I would feel very overwhelmed with that responsibility!

Who in your family knows you are trying to concieve? Just Df's parents, i didn't want to tell anyone but Df told his mum.

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? I didnt really know, i hoped it wouldn't be too long, guess i was wrong there!

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? It wouldn't bother me at all, I have 2 sets of twin cousins on my mum's side of the family. I would love it if i had twins.

Only William's mother. We wanted to keep it a secret until we got our BFP, but he let it slip!

Since I am in the early stages, I have no idea.

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples?
I would be overjoyed, but a little scared at the same time. Mults don't run in my family, but I guess there is a first time for everything, right?

When you first started ttc, how long did you think that it would take to concieve? I thought about 6 months... Apparently I was wrong!

What would you do if you found out you were going to have multiples? After I wake up from passing out, I'd be really excited but very nervous!
