    Default READ FIRST and Sign the Welcome Mat!

    Hello members, and welcome to the TTC Frequently Asked Questions forum!

    Please visit this forum to browse questions and answers that have been posted by other members, and to see if your question has already been answered. If you are new to the forums, or new to TTC and have a question to post that you cannot find an answer to, please post in in the TTC forum.

    If you are not sure where to go to find your answers or post your questions, please pm a moderator.

    *Sensitivity Reminder*
    It is super important that we all remember to refrain from saying things like "just relax" or "don't try so hard" to people who are ttc. We must be very sensitive to their struggles b/c making a baby isn't as easy for some or as fast as it is for others and saying things like that, though maybe well meaning - ends up being hurtful to the recipient. So please remember to think before you respond

    Calendar Guidelines

    In order to keep the calendar chaos-free, we have to ask that you limit your entries to birthdays, due dates and important anniversaries. Also keep in mind that any date you post is viewable by all members- it is not a personal calendar! Any events other than these will be pruned to prevent clutter. Thanks for understanding!

    Siggy Guidelines
    We have talked quite a bit about siggies in the mod room and debated back and forth. The challenge is to not stifle creativity and fun, but at the same time prevent big siggies that take a lot of the page.

    Your siggy has four lines. The intent is for:
    1 Text Line
    1 Pic Line
    2 Ticker lines

    A siggy may only have 1 pic line. The pic line can have multiple pics in it going across, but it should not exceed 320 pixels high. This means those of you that have pics on top of each other will need to change them.

    Ticker lines may be substituted for Text. For example, you might have a name, DSO, and DD line and you might have a quote line.

    The primary focus of these guidelines is to focus on the use of pictures. Pictures should be no more than 320 pixels high and no longer stacked on top of each other.

    Please make the changes now, so that mods don't have to ask.

    Melly is my screne name because my name is Melissa. My nick name is Mel. That works the best for me.

    I have been TTC since January 06 with one loss.

    I found APA when I was looking for what happens at a first appointment when you are pg and it also has a great explination of what fish is safe and what is not safe to eat.

    I love all of you guys. This place is so nice because no one is judging me, telling me to relax, telling me I am baby obsessed. You all are the best.

    My name is Amber. I am 28 and my DH is 28 as well. We have a 13 month old daughter and I am totally in love with her! (My DH is great too )

    My screen name was the first thing that came to my mind. I love my baby girl (well all babies actually!) and spend most of my time love'n her.

    We have been TTC for a second for two months now.

    I found APA when I was googling for an answer on how long you have to wait for a positive home preg. test to show up....I'm so impatient!!!

    I love it here so far. I'm learning so much about my cycle etc..., and it is wonderful to have support. Everyone is so kind and helpful. I'll definitely be sticking around through TTC, my next pregnancy, and beyond. I'm anxious to get to know you all better too!

    How did you come up with your username?

    B/c at the time I was pregnant and I had "love in my belly" but that pregnancy ended in a loss, I contemplated changing my name but others said I shouldn't so it is now a belly waiting for love to be in it

    How long have you been TTC?

    Since my m/c in May of this year. So 4 months. But the last 2 are the ones where we have really tried. Right after the m/c we waited a month per dr.s orders and then slowly got back into it.

    How did you find out about APA?

    Searching for when a heart beat should be heard.

    Anything else you'd like to add?

    Love APA

    Name: Jessie but everyone calls me jess i have a dd she is turning 5 in october I am turning 24 and dh (not married yet so do i call him db? lol) is mike and he is 33 we have been together 4 yearsish (is that a word?)

    How did I come up with my user name: A mix of everything we are christian and Jesus is forever beautiful, just as my child will be always no matter what she does My friend at christianity.com always called me foreverbeautiful in the chat he said it reflected my personality (I usually didn't chat during PMS..lol)

    How long at TTC: Actually I am not really ttcing....make any sense? I dont' believe in b/c because of so many side effects and i always forget to take the silly little pill. So my doctor suggested natural family planning, only doing it the opposite, not that mike and i would be upset if i did get pg we would be so happy just as you all. I started charting in September 06 and then became so interested and one day up popped this on google and here i am glad I am here....this is an awesome place to learn about so much i didn't know about before!

    Oh.....hmm ok well i answered the next question (how long at apa) above.

    Anything else you would like to add? : well I think this is long enough already don't you? :roll:

    Anything else you'd like to add? I enjoy asking my pg and TTC questions to a bunch of "strangers" rather than face-to-face with my friends/coworkers. It's amazing how you all have become more than "strangers," and I've come to rely on your wisdom and postive words. NOW...I'm going to try and go off to bed (again...I couldn't sleep).

    Anything else you'd like to add?
    I am 32, DH is 41...I have one DD, McKenna, she will be 5 Dec 6th. I love APA. I couldn't ask for better virtual friends than the ones I have made here. Nothing is too gross, too silly or too complicated that you can't find the answer from someone - and even if we don't have the answer, we have nothing but encouraging words for each other. I think it's fascinating (and comforting) that so many of us have so much in common whether it be symptoms, hobbies or POAS! Thanks again APA - I couldn't make it through this without you.
