Wait.  Don’t do it!  Start your job, get 5-6 months under your belt so that you can see if you like it, see what your work load is going to be, and get your health insurance.  If you’re planning to stay home after having kids, then this isn’t a concern except for the insurance, but if you have any plans to go back to work, you need to wait.  Maternity leave is a great way for your employer to find out that they don’t really need you, and if you don’t have a personal connection with your co-workers and time under your belt to rely on, you might find yourself out of a job.

Something that might help is to get ready first (prenatal vitamins, research, getting medical/dental checkups, charting- if that’s something you’re interested in). That will take up some more time and you can think of yourself as getting ready to TTC. By the time you’ve done some of these things a few months will have passed and you can start! Just a suggestion! Good luck!

I agree with some of the others!!

Make yourself a master checklist of TTC prep. Get yourself healthy and prep taking your pre-natals for a few months. Get an examination etc etc.

Before you know it you will be closer to health insurance time and then you can more feasibly start the process!

I agree with PPs..doing ‘pre-ttc’ work helped me immensely! I started eating healthier things, got prenatals, made an appt with the OB-GYN for a ‘pre-conception’ visit, etc! it helped feel like I was ‘doing things’ before I could really start!
