My doc thinks that I may have endometriosis and wants us to start TTC. We aren’t gonna start until after the wedding (guess it will make for a fun honeymoom!). But the other morning I thought about taking prenatal vitamins to help out my body a little. So I bought some yesterday and took my first one this morning…. It’s a little surreal and exciting all at the same time.
Has anyone else started taking prenatal vitamins right before or during TTC???

I started about 6 weeks ago and didn’t come off BC until 2 weeks ago. It is a different feeling. I had a brief moment of “what the heck have I done?” It’s funny because you spend all this time waiting to TTC, then once you start it’s even more waiting. First you wait for ovulation, then there’s the two week wait, then you’re waiting for a BFP or AF to start the whole cycle again. It can be maddening at times.

I started taking prenatals in May, and we won’t start TTC until September.

@MrsDTMajor: I’ve taken prenatals for years for its benefits on skin/hair. American Pregnancy Association recommends all women to take 400 mg of folic acid daily irregardless of TTC =)
Congrats on your upcoming wedding!!! =)

I took my first prenatal last night! I plan to go off the pill in October (I think) but I figured it can’t hurt to get in the habit! Yayy

I’m glad I’m not the only one excited about taking prenatal vitamins! We will TTC after my birthday in September. Having a baby seems to be the only thing I can think of lately. My husband isn’t the planning type, he just wants to be surprised. What a surprise that will be!!

@MrsDTMajor: Most people start taking them before TTC, the sooner the better. Good luck on your journey. 🙂

I started them in May, went off BCP beginning of June.
It is really exciting and scary at the same time.
Congrats & good luck!
