I was just wondering who is planning on ttc in 2013?? I know it's a way off but me and my husband are planning on starting in around July 2013, after his tour of afghan whilst we are on holiday. I'm coming off my pill in September to give my body plenty of time to get it out of my system as I am on dianette and have heard many horror stories about it! The plan is, if i come off it in September I will have 7 months without the need for any contraception as hubby will be away.
I was just wondering if there is anyone else who will be ttc around the same time and what, if anything you are doing to prepare?
I have joined slimming world as i'd like to lose 2 stone before falling pg. I'm a size 12 at the moment but after a lovely holiday last month everything is starting to feel a little bit too tight! I figure if I can lose 2 stone before falling pg, i can afford to put 2 stone back on during th pg.
I will also be starting folic acid and multi vits in Sept/October.
I'm getting terribly broody and keep thinking non-stop about babies so it would be nice to have others to chat too rather than driving myself mad lol.

im 25 so around your age. My husband and i have just decided to start ttc now, am soooo excited! i have just come off of dianette too! have been on it for years! so as soon as my cycles return to normal it shall be all systems go!
i have started taking folic acid and vitamin d3 and just exercising and eating healthily which should boost my chances of ttc.
i came off of dianette about 8 months ago for 6 months then about 2 months ago i went back on it (silly) then my husband and i have now decided to ttc i have come off of it again lol.
hope all is well with you, its very exciting times xxx

yes very exciting
erm.....my skin, to be honest at first it was fine and i thought oooh this is great! then after about 3 months it became oiler and then after 6 months i was getting the odd spot return again (but nothing like before i went on it). this time, my skin has just been a bit oilier but thats all so im OK with it!
i think were a bit older now so your hormones will be more settled, and the dianette definately does stabalise them! so fingers crossed you shall be OK!
vitamin d3 is basically what you get from the sun and helps the production of things like skin nails hair etc Vitamin D helps you to regulate the levels of calcium in your body. You need calcium and phosphate to keep your bones and teeth healthy. Vitamin D can also help you to fight infections, and may even reduce your risk of getting some cancers, diabetes and multiple sclerosis If you don't get enough vitamin D when you're pregnant or breastfeeding it can prevent your baby absorbing calcium properly. A lack of calcium can cause him to develop weak teeth and bones.....so definately an important one to include
hope this helps!

Hi there, im completely new to this site. Me and my husband (who is also in the army) are planning to start around August next year. After which he will have done his "big courses" and I will have been in my new job a year. I thought I was the only one thinking about it his early! It's nice to know there are others out there I've started doing a lot of research as this will be our first! I plan on coming off Femodene around July time so I have my "real" periods and I need to lose some weight before we TTC too xx

Hey Mrs. B,
LOL It sounds as if we have identical plans. I'm planning on getting off the pill in July 2013 and then my husband and I are going to start TTC when he gets back from deployment too. Hopefully by the time we go on a Cruise for our 5th anniversary in September I'll have the hormones out of my system. I have PCOS so I'm working hard to lose plenty of weight by then too. I have baby fever sooo bad though. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one.

Very exciting, 2013 is nearly here! My baby fever is growing again! Haha. We have decided we are going to start trying in April, giving us 3 months to take our vitamins and for me to lose a bit more weight. Woohoo can't wait (all the time I don't think about labour!!) x

My hubby started taking wellman conception tablets today, as sperm takes 3 months to produce. Although he has low sperm count and low mobility sperm, so we need the extra help! When we conceived my little boy we had just been put on the IVF waiting list and hubby had been taking wellman for about 3 months, it could be a coincidence but it has to be a good advert considering he had really poor SAs! x

Possibly me too. I think probably by end of 2013 we will be trying but no earlier than June 2013 for us.
We have one ds already and worrying how to cope with two! Also because it could be our last baby I kind of want to enjoy ds as much as possible and enjoy this last pregnancy as much too.
I'm under no illusion that a second pregnancy is not going to be as 'easy' as a first. No napping on the sofa in the afternoon at weekends!

Hey everyone! New to this, but here goes. I'll be 25 this year, and my husband and I have been ttc for about 8months and have only had bfn's so far hoping to get my bfp before trying for a year. I try to not think about it, but with everyone getting pregnant around me it's def. hard. Just looking for more people going through similar situations. Anyone got any suggestions as far as suplements we could take? We're already taking a multi-vitamin daily. Was just wondering if there was anything we could take to boost our chances. Baby dust to all!!
