Hi everyone,

Wow, I knew there must be other people like me out there, and I am so happy to have found this board!

I go by the name Cassie online. I am 30, married for 4 years to DH (33). I have always known that, as much as I loved and wanted children, it would be important for me to establish a career first. I used to think that I would TTC as soon as I turned 30, but I only recently found a really great job (after a few bumps in the career road), so I decided to wait one more year. So, we are now planning to TTC in Spring 2009!

I have been looking for information on how to prepare for TTC, but I find most of the info out there is about how to become pregnant. If any of you ladies have found really good resources (online or books) about nutrition, health, etc, prior to TTC, I would appreciate hearing about them! I want my body to be "baby ready" and I already know that the biggest and most important challenge for me will be to get to a healthier weight.

There are lots of other things that I'm looking forward to discussing with you, but I won't bombard you all at once:).

Have a great evening!

Welcome Cassie,
I'm Katie (24) and DH is Brad (28). We are waiting until September '09 to try. Our "Book of the Month" (not always pregnancy/TTC related) is Before Your Pregnancy, a 90-day Guide...-Amy Ogle, M.S., R.D, and Lisa Mazzuloo. I have found typing in "prepregnancy" will often pull up better information on how to get ready. But you are definitely right that there is less info about getting ready for TTC than TTC itself. Well, I'm certain other ladies here will chime in being that they are all fantastic. Hope your wait goes by quickly.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome!

And thanks so much to Katie for the book and "search term" recommendations. I was searching by "pre-conception" and I couldn't find what I was looking for:). The more I read, the more I realize how much important preparation can be done before TTC time, so I'm looking forward to checking out that book and a couple related ones that popped up.

Looking forward to chatting more with all of you!

Not a problem. Glad to share since I know it was difficult to find some things on the internet (managed to come up with that one a couple of weeks ago after at least a year). Look forward to chatting with you as well. :)

Howdy! I go by Cassie all the time ;) I'm 25 and my DH is Matt (24). We will have been married two years this September. We have only actually been together in the same place since December 07. We got married and 11 days later he deployed to Iraq for 15 months. We are just getting started on enjoying the married life, together.


We are hoping to TTC come this time next year. DH just got out of the army in March and will be starting college this fall. We hope to get him through one year of college and hopefully have the baby at the end of his second year.


Welcome to the group, the girls around here are lots of fun! This is a great place to wait!
