I am at exactly the same stage! I keep bringing it up to the Darling Husband and he’s getting more and more annoyed haha. I will probably go off BC in May and then just see what happens. If nothing by fall, then we will try a bit harder.

I’ve actually been considering it too…. We have some vacations which will include lots of drinking this summer; so fall seems about right.

Anyone worried about feeling blah about their appearance?? maybe that’s just me being self conscious…..

@MissBeans: I know it’s very exciting! Well i’m actually a Bridesmaid or Best Man in a wedding in October so I don’t want to be too big for it. I’m not even sure what our dresses are like yet so i’m not sure if I’ll even have any room, so I guess I will have to see. I figure I might be able to get a way with being 3 months for it. 

As far as preparing, i’m taking pre-natals and trying to eat even healthier. Also exercising a LOT. I like the whole idea of just seeing what happens because I think stressing about it makes it harder. We went on our honeymoon to Australia in January so we got that long travel bug out of our system. Now we are just trying to get our house prepared. 

It will be so good when your done your intense school program because you will have eliminated a LOT of stress and can worry only about you and baby πŸ˜‰

@MissBeans: We’re trying in the fall. I’m going off BC in late June/early July. I have a few more appointments to do, but we’re definitely trying around our second anniversary.

YAY! I think we’re going to start trying in August or September. We were going to sooner but I got a post-doc felllowship that starts in September and I don’t want to be obviously pregnant going into it. It’s going to be bad enough to have to take some time off to have a baby in May or beyond (depending how long it takes) because it only goes from Sept 1-Aug 31 and I imagine I’ll have to then extend it but it is what it is. I don’t really want to keep putting our lives on hold for my career, which we’ve already done by waiting this long. We can’t wait!

Also, we’re going to try not to tell people even though I feel like I’ve already told a lot of people (without being too specific) what our general time frame is. Also, I had to tell my mom what we’re thinking because she’s willing to come live with us for a few months so that I can go back to finish out the postdoc asap without worrying about putting an infant into daycare. She swore not to tell anyone though πŸ™‚

PS I just wanted to add that I went off BC last June, and it took me a FULL 3 months to get my period, and I’d say another 3-4 months for my cycle to regulate after that. Obviously I’m not a doctor or anything but I’d recommend going off sooner than later and using condoms, because that was stressful (and I don’t have any medical issues that contributed to it, my doctor said it happens sometimes). The whole time I kept thinking “gosh, what if we’d wanted to start trying right away?!”

I’m working on getting healthy too πŸ™‚ Glad to know there are others with the same “timeline.” I have opted not to talk about ttc with friends/family also, because I find once a few people know it’s all they want to talk about and I hate the pressure!! I’m content with keeping things private right now..

@monalisa670, I’m glad to know that someone else’s cycle was not completely normal after stopping bc. This is my first month off of bc and it’s been a little off to say the least!! I have heard it can take up to a year to have a regular cycle… which is why we starting the process a little earlier..just in case it takes my body a while to adjust.

@greeneyes_320, I can relate to your fears about body image..it’s the unknown that gets me a little on the anxious side more than anything else!!

What kind of BC are you ladies on? Did you have normal cycles before you ever went on BC??

@Lindsay05: I’m on Yasmin. Before BC (8 years ago), I had regular cycles, so I have no clue how it’ll be off the pill.

Yeah I have heard stories about the IUD as well. I am on the EVRA patch. I had normal cycles before I went on it and hope they continue when I go off of it. But hearing @monalisa670 say that it took a few months to have a cycle again scares me a little! Makes me want to stop the BC right now.

I went of the NuvaRing 1 1/2 months ago, and still no period. Luckily we are not planning to start trying before this summer, though, but I am still a bit worried.
