Next month my fiancé and I will be getting married. I want to start ttc right after the wedding. I’ve also been taking my prenatals for about 3 months now. As much as I feel that I am ready to ttc, it really scares the hell out of me! I’m not really sure what is so scary about becoming pregnant and if I did get pregnant I would be ecstatic. Have any of you felt this way before?

Why don’t you guys start by NTNC? Or, not trying to not concieve. That way, some of the pressure and stress is off; and when it’s meant to happen it will.
We aren’t there yet, but as much as I KNOW that I want children without a doubt, I’m still not convinced I want to be pregnant… it sounds strange when I put it into words, but it’s the truth.
I think the apprehension is normal, just because it’s something new. But once you get that BFP you’ll be too excited to worry! 🙂

We are still talking about it. Haven’t set anything into concrete and we are still nervous! It’s a big life decision not being nervous you’d be in the minority 🙂
When we are ready, I’d just go off the pill and see how we go. We are 2 years off even thinking of trying. Good luck to you 🙂

@juliette.eliza: It may sound a little strange spoken out loud, but you’re not alone.

I don’t want to be pregnant and I don’t like babies – ok, I don’t like kids until they can feed, dress, and clean themselves, as well as speak properly, so I’m in sort of the same boat. I am terrified!
So we’re doing what a PP mentioned – not trying, not preventing. I don’t chart, and although I’m in tune enough with my body to know when I ovulate, we don’t really do much differently then. But we’re also not using any kind of birth control. I know I would be happy with an oops, but I simply can’t get my mind to the place where I am READY, you know? So I think that might definitely be an option for you. It’s very low stress, I think.

I’m still scared and I’m in my 3rd trimester. But I’m the person who gets nervous over evey life change. Just lean on your Fiance and make sure those lines of communications are open, he might be just the type of reassurance you need.
