Right now I am in the prepping for TTC phase. So far I have quit smoking, dramatically curbed my drinking. Been taking prenatals for over a year now and takung Maca Powder. I also am seeing a naturopth and doing accupuncture. I will be going off the pill at the end of October, and plan to do a cleanse. 

I’m told I’m overdoing it a little….but there is no such thing as TOO prepared in my mind!

Congrats on getting married! I know that the waiting zone is tough but I bet the year will fly by and you will enjoy your time spent as a couple. I started my prenatals 3 months early and I going to start TTC next month. I can’t remember if my doctor said to start 3 months early or if that was just exactly how much time i had between seeing her and starting to try. I would just go to your yearly check-up and let your Dr. know you also want to do a pre-conception check-up. I think the blood work will just depend on your health history and if your doctor thnks it may be necessary. Good luck!

You should start taking prenatals and folic acid a few months before stopping birth control. Blood work isn’t really helpful unless you’ve been off birth control for at least 3 months. There’s not much else you can do 🙂

Congrats! I am in the same boat. We got married in July and I am totally ready to start TTC, but we need to wait a bit because next summer would not be a good time for us to have a baby. I’m in my mid 30s so I’m pretty eager and concerned that it might take some work to actually get pregnant. While I wait I’m trying to focus on getting my body ready to be pregnant. I’ve read that 3 months out is a good time to start with the prenatals, but there is no harm in taking them sooner. Good luck with the wait and know that you are not alone!
