Hey guys!! I am new to CafeMom!  My name is Emily, but you can call me Sunflower... or Em... or Emmy... I'm not too picky on that stuff.  I am 27 and I am trying to conceive my first child.

1. How long have you been TTC? About a month.
2. Will this be your first baby? If not, how many other kids do you have? Yes.
3. Where do you live?  Where did you grow up? I live in Florida, but I grew up in California. (In the valley, not the city.)
4. What do you have planned for today? Be awesome.  Make someone else smile.  Pass on the power of positivity.  I work until 5pm, so I am thinking that tonight I will be exhausted.  :)


This is my first time being on this site.  A friend of mine uses it quite frequently, as she has 3 kids respectively.  I am so excited about this new journey of mine.  :)

Hi everyone! My name is Brittany and my husband and I have been TTC now for 13 months! We already have a 2.5 year old son together. We were both born and raised in the Bay Area near San Francisco. My husband is in the military and is a police officer so it can be hard sometimes to try consistently! I just recently finished all my testing except my HSG test which I'm doing next week!! My doctor can't figure out why I'm not getting pregnant again!!

Hi ladies im a new member to this site. My name is Vanessa and I recently found out that I have PCOS and ever since then I've been doing IUI treatments to be able to conceive. I'm starting my new treatment this following week so hopefully this time around it works. This will be my husbands and I 4th treatment so fingers crossed. Have any of you done IUI?


1. How long have you been TTC? It's been about roughly a year now that my husband and I have been trying but, 6 months of doing IUI treatments.
2. Will this be your first baby? If not, how many other kids do you have? Yes, this will be our first baby.
3. Where do you live? Where did you grow up? We live in Magnolia, Tx and both grew up in Houston, Tx
4. What do you have planned for today? Busy day ahead of us and I'm still awake at 3 am lol

I'm a newbie to this page and so far I'm loving it!

Hi everyone, My husband and I just started this process. I just stopped my birthcontrol, about a month ago, and had my first period! We havent actively started trying just yet, i'm trying to let my hormones readjust since i've been on birthcontrol for about 7 years. I have a history of issues with my periods, and a family history of conception issues, miscarriages, and stillborns. I'm very nervous and want to do all I can to give our baby the best chance. This is our first baby, so theres a lot of anxiety. My husband is scared for my health (I am very petite, about 5'1'', and 94lbs). Right now, I take centrum chewables. It has 400 mcg of folic acid. I tend to have trouble with taking vitamins, what would you ladies suggest? and has anyone had issues with being small and have any tricks to gain weight? any help would be wonderful.  We both live and grew up in New Hampshire.

1. How long have you been TTC? We just made the decision a couple weeks ago (coincidentally during possible fertile period) that now was the time to start trying.
2. Will this be your first baby? If not, how many other kids do you have? This will be our 2nd. We have a 3 year old DD
3. Where do you live?  Where did you grow up? I live in a small town in Mid-Missouri. I grew up in the Kansas City MO area.
4. What do you have planned for today? Enjoying the snowy weather (most we have had this season so DD is excited!) and trying to decide if I should test tomorrow?

 Nice to meet you, Sara! I'm sorry for your losses. This is a great place to get support when you're TTC and dealing with all of that, though.
