I often talk about wanting kids and I know Darling Husband does as well but he
s never really brought up an actual timeline for it - until tonight! Were going to take this next year to get some financial stuff in order and for me to get my health issues in check (I have hypothyroid and I am a bit overweight, so trying to get that all under control). He says we can start trying around his birthday (March) of 2014. I know it`s still a way off but I am super excited that we are seriously starting to plan for things now 🙂
Any tips for getting preparing to TTC?

I would chart your cycles so when you get ready to ttc you have an idea of when to bd and just stay healthy. Make sure your vitamin has folic acid and d12 in it. 🙂 charting can wait until a bit later so you don’t get bored of it but maybe chart one cycle and see how it goes.

@GeekChic: Are you guys on BC or are you using condoms?! Congrats on setting a timeline! It can’t hurt to pick up a copy of Taking Charge Of Your Fertility! And get on those prenatal vitamins, girl! =)

@ChuckNorris: I am on the Ortho-Tricylen BC pill right now. I have heard lots of good things about that book so I will definitely be checking it out!

How exciting!! I second pre-natals and reading TCOYF. My doc recommended going off BCP a few months before TTC.
