Can I join in? We’re going to be TTC towards the summer next year I think, we hope! We lost a baby close to 20 weeks a few years ago. The pregnancy was unplanned but very much wanted. We considered trying after but it floored us, we just couldn’t do it, we couldn’t get past the fear or it happening again. But I think now we’re almost ready again. We’re getting married in just over two months so want to get that out of the way first. Fiance is a doctor so has been changing where he works frequently since we met. But in February he will be applying for consultant jobs and then should have a more permanent job after August next year. We want to wait at least till next February so we know where he will be working and where we will be living from next year on. Otherwise we are more than ready to start TTC and are excited about it. For a while I didn’t think I’d ever want to try again.

Age/DH’s age: I’m 28, Fiance is 32. 

When will you TTC?: Next year, in the summer probably

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I’m just starting to think about how I need to get my body ready. I’ve been trying to get a bit fitter, lose a bit of weight. I plan to start taking pre-natal vitamins soon and will also start charting, get a better idea of my cycles (although I have been tracking them for a while to get a bit of a better idea).

Do you Chart? Link to chart: Not yet. I will start soon though

Are you taking any vitamins or supplements?: Again, not yet but will soon

Do you have any other children?:

Roll Call info:

Age/DH’s age: 31 and he’s 39. O_O 

When will you TTC?: First or second cycle after the wedding. Wedding is June 23, 2017.

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I’m losing a lot of weight. Like 100lbs..or as close to it as I can get. And exercising to strengthen all over, especially the core. And will start Keegles soon too. Also I went for an pelvi/trans vag US a couple months ago, in case there are issues so I have time to fix them and blood work. All looks good. And I will repeat it again in the spring along with a full physical ๐Ÿ™‚ and he is too ๐Ÿ™‚

Do you Chart? Link to chart: Yes I have neen charting since I got off the BCP 11 months ago. Dont feel like posting the link. My cycle is very regular. ๐Ÿ™‚

Are you taking any vitamins or supplements?: I was taking Folic acid since I stoped the BCP, but now I started taking a prenatal vit cause I heard it can make you hair, skin and nails healthier, that wouldn’t hurt before the wedding lol still taking Folic Acid as the Prenatal doesnt have enough. And I take an extra Vit C & B cause Im a nurse and around sick peolle all the time. About 3-4 months before TTC Fiance will start a good vitamin/supplement to boost fertility. And I think I will too. We aren’t spring chickens anymore and want to have the highest chance of success from the start!

Do you have any other children? We have 2 furvabies a god and a cat ๐Ÿ™‚ No skin babies yet.

Age/DH’s age: 26 / 26 

When will you TTC?: Summer 2017 (Likely August or September, maybe a bit sooner) 

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I started working out on a routine basis almost 2 years ago, but hoping to do a better job of eating clean, especially on weekends where I tend to slack! Despite living a healthier lifestyle, I’ve gained quite a bit of weight over the last year, and I’m just really wanting to get that in check before TTC. I also stopped the BC pill last month in preparation for an appt with an Endocrinologist, but I consider it preparing for TTC as well since I’m not planning to go back on them! 

Do you Chart? Link to chart: When I stopped taking the BCP I downloaded the “Ovia” Ap to get a better understanding of when I can expect my period. Hoping the data will help me when we’re actually TTC! 

Are you taking any vitamins or supplements?: Been taking a multivitamin and probiotics for a few years now. Will likely look into prenatals in the new year. Will definetly start taking them in May or June at the latest. 

Do you have any other children?: No, just pet children!

Hello Ladies!! ๐Ÿ™‚
We’re also preparing for TTC and I’m definitely getting a little impatient over here… So I’d love to join in as well!

Here’s my roll call:

Age/DH’s age: both 29
When will you TTC?: We’re going on our honeymoon over New Year’s and want to start TTC right after that, so January 2017.What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I went off the pill last year and started taking prenatals a few weeks ago. Other than that I try to eat healthy food and work out, but that isn’t going so well due to all the work stress… Also I’ll start OPKs the next cycle, just to get a better feeling for when I ovulate, as I have never really given that too much thought.
Do you chart?: Nope, and unless it takes us many cycles to get pregnant, I probably won’t.
Are you taking any vitamins or supplements?: Yes, I’m taking prenatals.
Do you have any other children?: Not yet.

I can’t believe how fast it’s coming that we will be starting a family! It’s quite exciting. I can’t stay out of the baby aisle in stores these days undecided I’m also feeling a little impatient, but I think the New Year will be a better time for us than now!

 

Age/DH’s age: I am 25 and DH is 29. 

When will you TTC?: The plan is loosely January- February 2017

What are you doing to get ready to TTC?: I’m taking a prenatal and trying to loose 10-15lbs. DH needs to stop taking hot baths and riding bikes! I’ve also been off the pill since last March. 

Do you Chart? Link to chart: I do not chart yet, but I use the FAM. I get clockwork ovulation pain and my cycles are very regular (but only 24 days) so I’m comfortable using that to avoid at this point. 

Are you taking any vitamins or supplements?: Prenatals and DHA right now, just the Centrum ones. I will switch to a better one closer to TTC when I use these up. 

Do you have any other children?: Only furry ones! I have a 7.5 year old German Shepherd and a 1 year old cat.
