    Hi all,

    Just introducing myself here... I'm 26, married 4 months, living together almost a year, and together for 6 years. Now, we have talked about it and are now ready to start a family -- and here I am reading up and preparing as much as I can.

    The plan, as per my doc, is to get off the BCP a couple of moths before, which is this month (just started this BCPs this past weekend), start taking prenatal vitamins right after this pack is done, and start the baby dance in November.

    As patient as I can be, and I am, these couple of months have gone by slowly and these two to come seem so far away......

    Thanks for reading

    Welcome, I too will be doing the baby dance in November. I was pregnant recently and ended up having a m/c at 9 weeks. I had to have a D&C so no baby dancing for us for at least 3 months. But November will be 2 months so I think we will be ok to try again by then. GL and lots of baby dust to you.

    woohoo... hopefully it'll work out for the both of us! (and I'm sorry for your loss)

    I actually just found out that I will be traveling a few days after my 'predicted fertility' dates...so right now I'm kind of feeling some pressure. I'm on my last week of BCPs and everything is hanging really on when I get my Sept and Oct monthly visit... Hopefully, if it's all on predicted dates it will work out... I was hoping to just have fun with this but now I think I can't help but be a little worried and stressed when November hits!

    ******BABY DUST!!! BABY DUST!!!!******

    thank you!

    I started taking the prenatal vitamins and, although it may sound silly, I got excited taking this simple (yet big) step! I told my hubby and he just gave me a smile and a hug...

    I need to start taking them again.....we weren't going to start trying and we aren't officially trying but we aren't being too careful either. We figure it will be in god's hands and who are we to control his will.

    LOL and thanks!

    Actually, I'm probably going to do the same, I've already forgotten twice and I had to take them that night...I've been taking the Rainbow Light Prenatal One after breakfast and so far I like them, they haven't bothered me one bit.

    mrslee97658 replied to BabyLovesPrada's response:
    yes all prenatals are that big lol. If you find that you can't take them though my docs told me 2 flintstones vitamins work just as well

    faliensiu replied to BabyLovesPrada's response:
    I did hear/read they were pretty big and too big for some women, but they're actually exactly like my women's vitamin that I was taking previously (taste and size) so it was an easy adjustment for me.

    From the research I did, some prenatal vitamins come smaller but you have to have a several small ones. I rather do the one. So it's a matter of preference...

    ****** baby dust to you ******
