WTT in August - How to Prepare?


DH and I are WTT August 2011 for #1. I have been on BCP for several years and stopped taking them completely a few days ago. I plan to start on a prenatal vitamin this week to help prepare my body for a baby! Any other advice on how to prepare for my countdown to TTC would be great! Thanks!!!

Anyone else WTT August 2011? Add me as friend

As hard as it is, try to relax, it can take perfectly healthy couples 18 months to conceive! Stress will make it worse xx

Hi We are going to ttc the end of june after our wedding...Ive been off the bcp for awhile now like a year or so. And i am taking a prenatal as well. Im hoping become pregnant right away but my periods are very irregular ranging between 23-75 days. What im doing to prepare myself is tracking all my periods, and marking down the days i think im ovulating. I am also eating a lot healthier than i normally do like eating more meats, whole grain, veggies and fruit, I normally never exercise and they say if you have a healthy lifestyle its easier to become pregnant so Ive been excersing a lot more than i do normally. I guess to prepare and concieve faster would be to make sure your body/self is healthy before

I'm TTC in 3 weeks time and what I've done so far is go to the gym, try and eat healthier, been taking folic acid and got a blood test to check my rubella immunity.

Good luck, the time will fly by.

Hi i'm the same as mommytobe1003. We are TTC after our wedding in August for our 1st baby. I've got the coil atm and have no cycle atm or not one that shows anyway, so i have to take a trip to the doctors soon to find out when i should get the coil removed. I'm trying to be as healthy as possible anyway for the wedding so wil have to see how it goes. Hopefully will get pregnant straight away but you never know. xx

I know what you mean by hoping to get pregnant straight away. At the same time I'm also trying to be realistic but I definetly want to do everything I can to prepare! I've recently lost 41 lbs and hope to lose about 50 more by then so that I know my body is healthier for a baby. That and I want people to know I'm pregnant not just wonder! I've been on BCP for so long and my last AF was in May which Dr said meant BCP was working like it was supposed to. As soon as AF returns I will be charting and closer to August I will probably use OPK as well.

Hi, we are ttc#2 in august and will be coming off bcp in July. When we decided to try for our dd I had been on some form of contraception for 9 years. I came off the pill in April and conceived in the June. I'm hoping it will happen as quick as last time but we will see. We were very relaxed and said it will happen when it's supposed to happen.
I started taking folic acid in the April when I came off bcp. I will probably do the same as I did last time and start taking folic acid when I come off bcp in July. Ive managed to lose my baby weight and im eating healthy/exercising too. X

we are the same, TTC from may but I am currently losing weight, taking prenatal vitamins, exercising more, eating healthier (and also writing lists......lol) Oh and i came off the pill at new year so my cycles have returned now so i am tracking them.

We concieved the first month with Jamie, we were exercising by going for walks, not stressed out, and eating healthier so we had lost a bit of weight, as well as tracking ovulation. Good Luck!

My OH and I are WTT for august/September. We talked about how it might take a lot longer than we expect!! I have a pretty textbook body- from the day my periods started I have had regular 28 day cycles and I can actually tell when
I ovulate. So I'm hoping it will happen swift and easily
Ive always been a good eater It's just more the exercise. I work two-three jobs and I'm in college so I'm a pretty busy lady haha! That all will slow down after summer however thank god, and we can get back to our lives! I also want to go off BCP in June do I can take a few months to prepare my body well for baby
