@bestbuddies:  I would start taking prenatals now. Depending on whether you want to get pregnant right away or have some ntnp for a few months, you may want to start charting or using opks to get an idea of when you ovulate. It may take a while to regulate your cycle.

I got all my information from the book “what to expect when you’re expecting” it is really an investment.

go to an OB and get tested for things like TB,CMV,thyriod function, anemia.

make sure you’re up to date on immunizations

take pprenatal vitamins

start an exercise routine

Start prenatals! Maybe get a check up and blood work to make sure you’re in tip top shape. Other than that theres not a whole lot to do. Maybe do some budgeting to prepare? Check with your insurance company to see how much it will cost you out of  pocket.

Agree with prenatals. Also start charting. It makes it so much easier! I learned from charting that I have a short luteal phase (that can make it hard to get pregnant) so I started taking a B6 supplement to lengthen it & got my BFP the first cycle with B6! Charting also just generally helps you get to know your body. If you want to be efficient, I highly recommend! 🙂

Prenatals, working out, cutting down on drinking alcohol (not a huge drinker anyway, but limiting it even more). I didn’t see an OB since I had a check up not too much before coming off the pill.
