@Chelwilly:  I take New Chapter prenatal vitamins, and even though there are 3 pills to take each day, they are easy on my stomach. You can pick up dollar store pregnancy tests if you plan on testing like a crazy woman. If not, then make sure to get FRER (first response), which are typically 8 bucks for a pack of 2 I believe. You can test up to 6 days before your missed period. Don’t get blue dye tests. I accidentally bought them, and got a negative even though I was pregnant, so be careful not to get those. I didn’t get a good grasp on charting and didn’t use OPKs so I will let someone else handle that for you.

Have fun! It is exciting. Try to relax as much as possible. We did NTNP for two months and then actively tried in July and BD’d on every ovulation day and we ended up pregnant. Good luck!

@Chelwilly:  congrats and best of luck! The best info on the Bee boards are on the sticky on the main menu — the What to Expect post. Make sure you read that!

I am TTA (until next month!) but have been charting for a while. Be sure you get a good thermometer, plan to temp at the same time daily, and get familiar with cervical mucus/fluid. Most ladies on here recommend reading Taking Charge of Your Fertility (TCOYF for short) and I can recommend that as well. Totally no-nonsense, straight-forward, informational book out there!

@Chelwilly:  Definitely read that book! TCOYF is awesome. I love the fertility friend app for my phone, so convenient to track CM and temps on there. Good luck !!:)
