Hi, ADR. I am in Utsunomiya. Tochigi Prefecture, north of Tokyo. Are you on a military base? Where is Yokosuka?

 

ADR - June 21

yes on base...you?

 

ADR - June 21

So do you have any kids?? how long have u been TTC? OH and yokosuka is near yokohama ..i think. I just got here last month! I am homesick and desperatley want a baby...i am 22 by the way

 

Tulip - June 21

No. My husband is working for Honda here.

 

Tulip - June 21

I don't have any kids. We aren't actually trying to conceive but we might have anyway. I'm hopeful. Hubby wants to wait. We only got married last fall. I've been here for about 9 months now. The homesickness gets better! I'm 32. How long have you been married? Do you like Japan?

 

ADR - June 21

Oh wow what does he do for Honda? its a good opportunity to come here, just need to adjust i guess. We got married last november..iwant to give you my email or something but i dont know how without everyone on here seein it..lol..so you think you are preg now?? well its getting late here...almost 1am..so i am headed to bed

Hubby is a car engineer. I'm not sure how to exchange e-mails either. So you are a newlywed, too! I just don't know if I'm pregnant or not. We had risky s_x around ovulation time. I will have a better idea next week. I'm hoping. Are you preggers, do you think? Goodnite for now!

Hi, ADR. How are you today? I think I am imagining pregnancy symptoms. Which branch of the military is your husband in?

 

ADR - June 22

Hey Tulip! what signs do you have?? when is your AF due? or not due =) I started my AF on the 19th so im waiting to O again! blah! I hope it happens this month...is it raining where you are? Hubby is in the navy.

 

Tulip - June 22

Hi ADR! I almost married a Navy guy once! I am expecting AF (I doubt I'm preggo-just seems to be against the odds) on the 28th or so. I am feeling really tired and I think I'm more sensitive to smells (as you know, Japanese smells can be a bit overwelming anyway) and I'm having some crampy feelings. Strangely enough, I normally have sore b___bs between ovulation and AF but this month I don't. I just keep thinking it really isn't very likely. It isn't raining here right now, although we know it is supposed to be the rainy season. How long have you been ttc? Where are you from in U.S.?

 

ADR - June 22

hi Tulip! it was raining here all day and yes i know what you mean about the japanese smells! i have been TTC for 5 months now...this will be our 6th as i am on AF right now =( but its fun trying anyways...hehe. I am from CA in the US...you?? are you and your hubby TTC? or just seeing what happens?

 

Tulip - June 22

Hubby and I aren't trying to conceive, but that is only because he won't give in yet. Our official plan is to try next Spring so the baby will be born in the U.S. We go home in October 06. I went off the pill in Jan or Feb. Saturday around O-time hubby and I had been out drinking and he decided the withdrawal method would do well enough. I don't think he made it in time LOL. How are ypu holding up after 5 months- are you calm or panicking? How long will you be in Japan?

 

ADR - June 22

Hello again. I am staying pretty calm about TTC so far. But i do get upset when AF comes. Do you guys have health insuance in case you are pregnant? when are you going to test? we dont get to go home to the US until late 2008 =( we just got here. It is hard because i am very close to my family. So where are you from??

 

Tulip - June 22

ADR, I'm sure it is difficult getting AF. We have nice insurance. Birth practices here are a little different, but you would have your baby in the navy hospital, right? I am very close to my family, too. Last Christmas was hard. I am from Ohio. Hubby is from North Carolina originally. I am not going to test unless AF is late, maybe next Friday or Saturday. Have you thought about how you will tell your husband if you are pregnant? Would you do something creative- put booties in his shoes or something, or would you both be watching the test develop together?

 

ADR - June 22

I dont think I would have him watch the test developing with me. I dont want him to see me dissapointed if it a BFN. I think when I find out I am pregnant, I will go get a card that says congrats you are going to be a father or something. But I like your idea too! That would be so cute! I hope to go home for xmas this year but if Hubby cant get off work I wont go. Hopfully i will be 6 months pregnant this xmas!! hehe wish me luck! So, do you want to be pregnant? and your husband doesnt? what do you think he will do if you are? I hope everything works out for you =)

 

Tulip - June 22

We are going home for Christmas this year! I'm excited. I have 5 nieces- can't wait to see them. My husband would be fine if we are pregnant. I am definitely hoping and he seems, so far, to be neutral. I keep trying to get him to talk about it, but I think he's thinking about it a lot. He isn't a chatty guy anyway. I would want to tell him in a fun way if I am. I think he would be happy and then he would start to worry about everything- money, college funds, where to live (we don't have enough room). I told him he is not allowed to have any hint of a negative reaction if we do turn out to be expecting! How is your husband dealing witht he trying to conceive part? Some men seem to be like"Yippee, s_x, s_x, s_x" and some are cranky because they feel like "breeders" : ) Hopefully, yours is happy!
