Does anyone have any recommendations (good/bad) on prenatal vitamins? My insurance is no longer covering the prescription I had (they want $50 a month for it!!) and all the OTC ones I’ve tried make me SO nauseous.
My doctor told me the only thing I needed to be taking pre TTC is folic acid. The rest of the stuff in the mix can wait till we start trying. But you could ask your doctor if the iron is needed or not.
Question about charting with Fertility Friend: did you people buy the premium VIP version or just using the free basic version? just deciding whether or not to get it as my one month trial is almost up!
So I wrote a few pages back that DH and I had a slipup and had unprotected sex a day before I ovulated. Currently 7DPO and will see what the next few days bring. Not really focusing on it as I don’t want to invent symptoms that aren’t there. Will update when I see what’s coming our way!
I wanted something with DHA. I am also taking a fish oil supplement due to another issue, but I know it doesn’t hurt for TTC. I originally got these at Target (they were on sale and looked good) but checked them yesterday and they were $22 for the bottle of 90! Just ordered the same size bottle from Amazon for $12. I am careful to take them with food (breakfast) because I am nervous that they will make me nauseous if I don’t. But I haven’t had any issues with them at all.
Soooo, I was just ordering a couple of things on Amazon and needed to add something to my order for free shipping…. so I put the Mayo Clinic Guide to Pregnancy in my cart. I hadn’t been planning to buy any pregnancy books until a BFP, but here we are. I am kind of losing patience and feeling like, screw it, let’s try tomorrow! It doesn’t help that DH is getting really excited/antsy about babies too… makes my baby fever pretty overwhelming. (Though I LOVE that he is so pumped!!)
OMG I’ve missed so much!!!
lovekiss: Cool job, my aunt does that! Are you in DC?
nutmeg36: My hubby would probably love to be a stay at home dad, but I don’t make that much money! I told him if I make over $200K, he can stay home
jammer62: Funny, my SIL is a wedding photographer and thinks it isn’t conducive to having kids. I feel like it would be a great schedule! Congrats and good luck!!
MrsFairyBee: I feel like I’m hearing of miscarriages all the time. It just sounds horrible
arielmerms: I just take the ones from Target- Vitafusion.
mrscorgi: Correct, Vitafusion do not have any iron, which is actually why I take them! I can’t tolerate any iron, but I’ve never been anemic (even as a vegetarian for years), so there’s no need for it. As a petite female with a mother with osteoperosis, I should probably take a calcium supplement though, thanks for the reminder.
NeedPenPaperCoffee: Oof, I almost did the medical school route, but man that sounds like a tough lifestyle! I have a flexible job like you, and I can’t imagine otherwise!
Ok I’m going to post this and then keep responding just so I don’t lose anything!
Bettyboo1982: Of course, welcome!
Janelle123: Moved you to February 2015, now you have to do it!
nutmeg36: I’ll take you off the list! Good luck!!
KatiePi: Ooooh exciting!
SharpBee: I’ll add you to March 2015, but we can change it 🙂
Phew, ok I’m caught up!! Sorry for not updating for a while, I had a deadline Saturday and then we went to Ireland! I’m enjoying being in Europe, but ready to come home. We are in a 400 square foot apartment and don’t know anyone in the city, so we are bickering a lot. I miss my kitchen and my friends and my dog! We are here another week, then Paris for a few days, and then finally home after 2 months. And I guess off the pill! Ahhhh!! I just signed up for a January marathon and I’m nervous about having regular cycles with running, so I think it will be good to be off the pill during that time to see what happens. Ok, I will post the updated list and then get back to work!
I hope I got everyone!!

Whew. Been a while since I checked in. I’ve missed a lot. Work has been super busy and it’s just wearing me out. This past weekend I refused to do anything, haha.
DH started talking about going to Mexico again around our 1 year anniversary (Feb) and possibly bringing friends with. I asked how he felt trying to make babies while on vacation with friends and he gave me this uugghhh sort of noise then said that just sounds too early. What!? By then we’ll have been together for over 8 years! Pulling me away from the light at the end of the tunnel better have been just a lapse in judgement!
