We’re pulling the goalie next month…  I would have loved to have tried for April, but we’re taking a delayed honeymoon the end of May. So on the honeymoon is when we’ll be totally bc free. But June will be our more likely month due to ovulation schedules. So I’m right there with ya! I just try to not think about it and remind myself why we’re waiting. πŸ™‚

Charting is really good because it makes you feel a little in control. And if you start charting now they you will know when you O each month when you are ready to start trying. I think you list is great but I would also make a preconception appointment to go over genetic testing, any medications you may be on, and also any shots you need. Good luck, and your trip sound very exciting!

We are in kind of the same boat. We are going to Europe for 2.5 weeks Aug 30-Sept 16 and decided we wouldn’t try until end of Aug and on the trip. We got a little excited and pulled the goalie this weekend but I don’t think it will result in anything. I am like you, don’t want to be away and pregnant just in case. However, it if happens… won’t be far enough along to really have any issues. As for your trip, might be best to avoid due to the altitudes and exercise πŸ™‚

We are filling our weekend with lots of stuff for “us”. Camping, weekend getaways (hence this past weekend LOL), house reno’s, cooking classes etc. Stuff we can do selfishly, that are a little harder to do once you have another member of your family.

Best of luck!! Keep busy!!!

@sunshinyday:  I know it’s sooo hard to wait, but I think you’re making the right decision! I’m almost 8 weeks pregnant and there’s no way you’d catch me hiking in South America, even though that trip sounds AMAZING. I am just too tired and sick…it would be so miserable!!! Just focus on getting as healthy as possible and dreaming about your trip, and soon enough it will be time to try. That’s awesome you are both ready. Good luck!

@sunshinyday:  @StaceyA:  We are in a similar situation – we have a trip to Italy planned in September and I definitely do not want to be preggo while there – I plan on being able to drink wine, don’t want to be exhausted/sick, etc.  So while I wish we could start sooner, I am holding on to that as the last big trip before TTC and hoping I won’t go crazy in the meantime! =)

@Mrs.JA:  That’s awesome! Seems like there are a few of us bees travelling this fall!

And while I was in total agreement with what you said, DH and I had a weekend of way to much unprotected fun… so… still hoping to see AF in the next couple weeks but if not… guess he’ll be drinking the wine for me! :S Whoops. 😐 Not planned, but that’s okay. πŸ™‚

How long are you guys going for?

@sunshinyday:  I hope you take lots and lots of pictures and post when you return .. that sounds like such an incredible trip!!!!

We were originally going to pull the goalie in May, however, one of my brothers is getting married at the end of summer/beginning of fall and I have a past tendency to be the one on the dance floor with drink in hand all night long at weddings.  If we did conceive right away it would be okay, but if it was later I wouldn’t want my big fat not greek family being like “hmmm, why’s NurseMarriedToAFarmer not doing the one hand dance tonight” when we weren’t ready to share our news yet.  Ugh, waiting for events is no fun at all.  We might just say “adios waiting, hello ttc” anyway (=.

June is when I go off BC too! I’m so excited and it can’t come fast enough, but as well I’m going to enjoy this time of us and keep working on being as healthy as possible!

Good luck!  We’re waiting a few more months (at least) and so far I’m just taking prenatals, getting in shape, and planning to read the copy of TCOYF that’s sitting on my coffee table.
