[b]Did you think it would be this hard to TTC?
Yes...When we first started I had it in my head that I would get preggo the first month ttc. Now it's going on 5 months...a little down but will keep trying.

[b]Are you charting? Yes, but after what happen last cycle I wanted to not do it anymore...it's was like a roller coaster ride.

[b]Are you taking prenatal vitamins? Yes!!! for like 2 years now.

[b]Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC? I stop drinking diet coke...which was so hard the first 2 wks and I stopped drinking red wine (I only drink it once in a while anyway, so it was not hard to give up), try to eat healther and workout more...still working on that one.

[b]Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook? I would like to do both, but for sure I will do a baby book.

[b]Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends? Hate to said it...yes. Not that I'm not happy for them, but deep down I'm thinking why not me.

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC? I knew that didn't happen immediately for everyone, but I thought that it would for me (I guess 'cause we spent so long avoiding).

Are you charting? Yes

Are you taking prenatal vitamins? Yes, my Dr. put me on them years ago!

Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC? No caffeine (or very little), no booze near O time and during the 2WW, no sushi or soft cheeses then either. Try to get more exercise and sleep (although failing miserably there).

Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook? Once pg and past the first trimester I may start a journal.

Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends? I think I'm more envious at how easily they have conceived. One of my oldest BFF's is pg with her 3rd - it happened their first cycle trying!

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC?
Never - I figured it would take my body a little while to get off the BCP, but it's now 8 months.

Are you charting? yes

Are you taking prenatal vitamins?
Yes, been on them for a while now.

Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC?
I cut out all caffeine drinks & try to exercise more.

Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook?
Absolutely

Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends? I guess jealous is too strong of a word, like Kimberley I'd say I get envious and ask myself when is it going to be my turn.

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC?

No, especially when I knew that all 3 of my sisters were able to conceive easily.

Are you charting?
Just started, but have to start thermometer charting....

Are you taking prenatal vitamins?

Have been since I decided to start TTC....doc's suggestion

Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC?
I am trying to eat atleast one really good meal every day and trying to watch how much junk I eat, although it's not working all the time.

Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook?

I definately will make a baby book, and probably a scrapbook too. I have 2 scrapbooks already. One my sister and mom made for us of the wedding and one that I made of all the places that DH and I have gone and the wedding and honeymoon.

Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends?

It's hard not to, especially when there are 5 of them around you, 3 all the time.

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC?
No. Not even when we were TTC #1. It surprises me (although it shouldn't) that I'm not like my mom in this respect when I am almost her biological "twin" in almost everything else!


Are you charting?
I just started. It's hard for me to try and remember to take my temp each morning. I do watch the mucous signs as best I can though.


Are you taking prenatal vitamins?
I started taking them when we were TTC #1 and have never stopped taking them. I figure it doesn't really hurt to have the vitamins and minerals whether I'm TTC or not.


Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC?
I am trying to make better, healthier meals more often (although to listen to DH rant this evening, you'd be hard pressed to believe it....jerk.... ). I know I should cut out caffiene, but I have not been successful yet. I didn't really cut caffiene out the last time I got PG, so I'm kind of hoping that's not a factor....but I'll keep trying to cut down.


Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook? I tried scapbooking years ago, and never got into the habit of doing it. I take lots of pictures and look at them online to reminisce, but no scrapbooking. I have a ton of empty photo albums, too! I'm lazy, I guess!


Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends?
I don't have any PG friends at the moment. But if I did, I don't think I'd be jealous.

Hope you don't mind me joining in, I am new here!

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC? This is my first month of really trying but I have to say that we were VERY casual about BC for two years and nothing happened so it makes me worry...


Are you charting?
Just started but I am using the wrong thermomemeter so I need to do better for next month, but I am using OPKs

Are you taking prenatal vitamins?
Just started taking a Woman's Multivitamin 2 weeks ago


Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC?
This is hard...I usually drink 3 cups of coffee and 3 diet cokes a day!!! Terrible, I know. So I just switched to caffeine free diet coke and 1/2 decaf 1/2 cafffeinated coffee. So far so good. I will terribly miss my glass or two of wine on the weekends!

Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook?
I am a major scrapbooker so YES!


Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends?
When my SIL and sister became pregnant a year ago I was suprisingly jealous. After I got the news over the phone I acted very happy for them but then hung up and ran into my room crying. I was so puzzled with my reaction but I think I knew deep down I was not satisfied with the size of my family and ached for a baby! That is when I started to really thinking about TTC #3...here it is a year and a half later and I've decided to go for it! )

Sorry, I wasn't on yesterday, so this will have to be my Six for Sunday....

Six for Saturday:

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC?
Not at all. I thought we'd be PG right away.

Are you charting? Yes

Are you taking prenatal vitamins?
Yes, have been since December 2007. And, I've got to say, my fingernails are looking awesome!

Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC?
Not really. I've tried to eat better, and tried excercising, and tried getting more sleep and I've done a "little" bit better in all of those areas, but not like I wanted. This last cycle I cut caffiene out totally during the 2ww and seriously thinking about cutting back more than the little bit I drink in the W2O if it'll have an affect on my CM. Still researching that one.

Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook?
Definately do both.

Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends?
I don't have many friends that are still having children. But, with my JM "friends", don't get me wrong cuz I love them all, and jealous isn't the word for it cuz I'm happy for them from the top of my head to the tips of my toes, but I'm sad that I can't seem to be in the same boat as them. KWIM?

Did you think it would be this hard to TTC? I knew it would take a few months, but never thought I would still be waiting 2 years later !

Are you charting? Yes

Are you taking prenatal vitamins? No, but I'm taking regular multivitamins

Did you previously or have you changed something in your diet/lifestyle now that you are TTC? I'm *trying* to eat healthier

Have you previously or will you do keep a baby book or a make a scrapbook? I have kept baby books for both of my kids, and will probably do the same if I have another.

Do you ever get jealous of your pregnant friends? Sometimes I do. I have too many friends having babies so I'm getting used to it.
