Waiting to TTC just completely sucks in my book! Hang in there. How long do you have to wait? I’m trying to keep my mind off it by checking off my list of things we want to do before we have a kiddo.

I am SO with you.  I am on the Nuvaring and have three of them left in my fridge.  I think after this we will switch to non-hormonal even though we’d stlll be waiting to TTC. I would stop now and go that route except I feel wasteful not using those last three.  I think I’m just ready to get in tune with my body and see what’s actually going on with it rather than being on this fakey hormone mess (which I’ve been on for 12 whole years now – half my life!)

Same here! I take a seasonale-type pill, and it has three months’ worth in each pack. I want to stop taking it three months before our official “let’s start trying” date. Darling Husband wants me to take it right up until the date. I tried explaining to him that after you stop BC, you’re supposed to wait 3 months before TTC. I think he’s trying to just squeeze in an extra three months of time before we really start TTC. Sneaky husband!

I completely agree. We have 9 months to wait due to financial reasons with my work. :/

I’m in the same situation too.  I’m totally ready, but hubby wasnt and wanted to wait “at least 2 or 3 years” after getting married!  He’s a little younger than me, and luckily he’s come around to only a year after we get married.  But now the only reason we’re waiting is cause of a vacaction we have booked in the spring to hike the inca trail.  I definitely dont want to do that pregnant so that’s all we’re waiting for.  We were originally going to wait until after another vacation the fall to Italy cause I want to enjoy food and WINNNNE.. but I’m willing to give that up and take that trip pregnant just to start TTC a few months earlier.

I know this feeling! I’m off hormonal BC but we still plan on waiting almost another year… I’m a grad student, so I understand why we have to wait but that doesn’t mean it isn’t driving me crazy!

@mere23:  This is me to a T– I have 1 more 90 day supply waiting in my closet and b/c it’s a brand name, it cost $100 with insurance, so it seems really wasteful not to take it! We do have a rough timeline (early fall) so I’m definitely stopping after this supply. I was kind of hoping it wouldn’t come in the mail in time and then, whoops, I’d have to just stop it now πŸ™‚ We’ll still be using other back up until we are ready, of course, but I also just want to get more in tune with my body first.

I love how our bc guilts us into using them a few more months. πŸ™‚ I figure I’ll finish this pack, and then one more 3 month pack. That will give me almost 6 months off of hormonal bc to get my body all tuned up and ready for the baby making!

I am totally on board with this. I just started my last pack of pills so I should finish them in mid February. Just in time for my birthday which I told hubby would be a great bday present to start ttc. He’s receptive sometimes when we talk about it but usually i get a negative response like last night when he caught me looking at pre-natal vitamins in Target which he laughed at and said “No”. I have been taking regular vitamins anyway so psht on him but I’m so ready to be off the pills and am starting to resent taking them. We both have great jobs, a house and decent finances and I’m not getting any younger (ill be 27 next month). I’m thinking that once im done the pills we will just go with it and he won’t think about it too much and BOOM – pregnant. lol.

@AlmostMrs.APP:  You know the doc recommends taking prenatals up to two years before you TTC πŸ˜‰ – so get him on board!  I think my Darling Husband will be the same way though – he is excited but when it comes down to saying “we’re going to do it starting at X month” he gets anxious.  I think he’d rather it be a surprise.  Me, I’m a planner.  So maybe I’ll plan to surprise him!  Ha, kidding, I would never, but I’m just ready for things to get moving.
