@crazydogmom:  Definitely get off the pill at some point before May. Some peole take several months to regulate, others don’t. I’d say maybe around February or March if you plan to TTC in May?

Here’s the link to all of the abbreviations!

@crazydogmom:  Oh, PS, I’m a crazy dog mom as well =)

You should think about starting to take prenatal vitamins. American Pregnancy Association recommends all women take a vitamin with at least 400 mg of Folic Acid, and prenatal vitamins have that in it. Some make some women nauseated, so finding which one works well for you would be a good idea.

It can’t hurt to pick up a copy of Taking Charge Of Your Fertility now, or in a few months maybe. It teaches you all about the changes your body goes through in a cycle, temperature changes, cervical mucus (lovely, right?), cervical position (and it gets better!), all the lovely things that charters monitor each cycle to give us an indication of when we may be ovulating.

Exercise is always good, especially because they don’t recommend you up the exercise right when you get pregnant, so getting to a point where you are already doing that several times a week will be good for you =)

I forgot to say in my other post congrats and welcome as well =) Wishing you lots of baby dust!

I would get off the pill soon to get your body to adjust, and use condoms religiously until u r ready to pull that goalie. I would also start pre natal vitamins, as those cannot hurt you!!

finally, I would pay attention to your body these next few months off the pill…taking note of your length of cycles, potential ovulation periods, etc. Then come may, enjoy trying to concieve!    I u find u r not getting the result u want, chart/temp, etc!!

@crazydogmom:  Umm, I definitely have the same EXACT fear about my dogs!!! How am I going to have time for both dogs and a baby? My dogs will definitely feel left out. My friends definitely think I am insane too. My best friend is actually not a dog lady, she hates animals, and she will never understand my love for them. She’s like, lets go to the mall, and I’m like, but wait! My animals! Lol.

We were at lunch with Brother-In-Law and SIL in SF recently… Brother-In-Law asks, “How are the dogs?” And I respond in full-on puppy voice.. “Awwww miss Mo and miss Lee [nicknames of course] I miss them so much….” ANd he said, “Chuck, they are not here, you DO NOT need to use the puppy voice.” LOL
