Hubby has been very hesitant with the whole baby thing, but we finally set a time for starting to TTC! We’ll be starting at the end of December! I wanted to hear from some Bees who are currently pregnant or have little ones, or are TTC. What things/tasks would you recommend to do prior to the BFP or arrival of LO? What things you wish you had done? I’m sure the arrival of a little bundle of joy definitely makes you put some stuff off. Also, being PG prevents you from doing certain things or just makes it harder. We’re doing some work around the house, like painting, and taking a few trips before TTC and one overseas most likely when we’re already expecting, but I’m trying to figure out what else I should focus on in the mean time. Things to get ready for LO that were harder to do while PG?

I’m glad I did a marathon before TTC. I was actually 2 months into training for another one when I got pregnant, and I was too tired & nauseated in the very beginning to keep up the mileage. I’m still doing the half marathon, but I’m ok with it 🙂 Finishing a marathon was one of the big things on my ‘to do’ list and I did it!
I am also glad I’ve already been skydiving, because I can’t imagine that’s a reccommended activity!
Other things we tried to make sure we accomplished- good jobs of course, and I already own my home. We both have family-appropriate vehicles that are fairly new, and mine is paid off 🙂
Also, we wanted to take time for ourselves. We have enjoyed countless date nights, we enjoy guys’ night/girls’ night regularly, I spent a weekend in DC with my college roomie, I got drunk at the beach on St Pat’s weekend, I enjoyed my life and our life as a couple since I am aware things may change.

I wish we’d gotten to do more SCUBA diving. I got certified shortly before I got pregnant and we went on one trip. Now it’ll probably be a couple of years before we get to go diving again. 🙁

@BoiledPNut: I just got certified a few months ago and wish we could do more before PG.

@DaneLady: We have a Vegas trip planned in a month, so that will be our last big trip before TTC. As much as I would love for our timeline to be pushed even sooner, I would be pretty upset to go to Vegas pregnant. 🙂 I think we’ll also make sure to have as much alone and carefree time between now and TTC.
