I am very new to all of this so bear with me! I am getting married in June and plan to come off my pill October time. I would greatly appreciate any tips and advice people may have for falling pregnant and what to expect.

Hi Fifi, welcome to the site.
Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage & plans to become parents. Every woman & every pregnancy is different so what works for some may not work for you & the same in reverse.
Generally coming off the pill can affect your cycles/ovulation & whilst some women will recover quickly & fall pregnant almost immediately, it can take several months for your body to adjust to the change of hormones & some women will be trying for years after.
If you are planning to conceive the general advice is to start taking folic acid & vitamin d. The folic acid will help prevent neural tube defects in the growing baby & vitamin d will help prevent eclampsia in you. You can also try ovulation sticks & fertility monitors to help you judge the best time for you to conceive.
Whilst trying to conceive you can share tips & experiences/frustrations on the trying/planning boards. Once you fall pregnant you can then share your experience with other mums in the pregnancy/Due in ... forums (alas no-one can tell you what to expect at this point as having been through two completely different pregnancies you don't know until it happens).
Best wishes & good luck to you.
