So here I am, with yet another TTC post! I don’t post frequently, but it’s usually about not knowing when or being nervous of TTC.
But now, DH and I have decided to start trying in the near future. The thing holding us back now is that I have a European trip booked. It’s about 2 weeks, and I’ll return the end of June. When is the earliest you all think I could TTC? Or at least come off the pill? I mean, I know it can’t be Janurary or anything, but what about April/May? Or would you just wait until after the trip in case of morning sickness, etc?

If you don’t have a set timeline or deadline (like wanting to give birth in a certain month for work or something), I’d just wait to TTC until during or after the trip.

I wouldn’t come off birth control unless you’re ready to get pregnant, since it can happen very quickly. I have very rough pregnancies and travel is very difficult, as is eating food that I am not used to while very sick. So there is a chance that it could ruin your trip if you get pregnant beforehand, although you would be fine to ttc in June. There’s also a chance that you would sail through just fine! That’s the hard thing about ttc – you just don’t know!

Wait intil after the trip or try during trip. I just did a European trip at 22-24 weeks pregnant and it was exhausting And I’m having an easy pregnancy with no morning sickness. And it sucked not being able to drink all the beer and wine. enjoy your trip and TTC after.

I agree – wait until afterwards as you don’t know how you’ll be feeling and you’ll be able to enjoy it to the fullest 🙂
I’m currently waiting to TTC also because of travel plans and know how hard it is though.

I’m waiting to TTC in 2016 too! If you want to get pregnant ASAP, I would start trying on the trip or later. Like PP said, this allows you to enjoy your awesome trip with less limitations.
If you did happen to get pregnent on your trip you shouldn’t notice any symptoms right away. It takes a few weeks.

If you don’t have a timeframe, I would wait until just before or after your trip to start trying. And, even after that… it may take some time!
I went off BC in Spetember, and then ee started TTC right after (waiting for AF or BFP now next week), but still planned a trip to Vegas in January with some family. I didn’t know what our status would be, but knew that it woud probably take us a few months to conceive, if we even can. If I am pregnant when we go, at least I’ll only be a month or two. If not, that’s cool too… and we’ll still keep trying.

If you aren’t in a rush, I would try just before/during the trip. If you want to get off the pill before that, I’d still prevent in someway bc it isn’t unusual to get pregnant quickly after that.
I’m nearly 8 weeks and have been ridiculously exhausted for the past 3 Weeks. I can’t imagine enjoying running around Europe right now. Maybe think of it as a baby-making-moon. 😉

Most people feel well during their 2nd trimester. So I would plan to travel then or start trying when you return. First trimester nausea and fatigue is not a nice travelling companion.
