Hi All,

I am Elaine. I am getting married to a great guy in less than 3 months and we are planning to start trying for a baby as soon as the ring is on my finger. FI has a 7 year old son from his first marriage but this will be my first. I can't wait and plan on going off the pill about a month before the wedding so that I will be ready to go.

I am feeling really nervous and anxious about the whole process today as one of my best friends had to have emergency surgery last night for an ectopic pregnancy. They had to practically give her a c-section. It just reminded me that it's not always an easy process and I am anxious to know that I can get pregnant (no reason to think I can't, my periods have always been like clockwork when I am off the pill) and nervous about something going wrong.

It's nice to find a place here where I can talk about TTC before I actually TTC.

Hi Elaine!


You must be so excited with your wedding coming up in only three months. Congratulations!


I think it's totally normal to worry about things like fertility problems, and all the things that can possibly go wrong during

Thanks for the warm welcomes everyone. I will check out the buddy group.

Yes, I have been taking a pre-natal vitamin for several months now as recommended by my doc. Not on ly for the folic acid but also iron since I have tendency to have a low iron count. It's horrible, makes me very nauseous.

And yes, I will definitely be charting...at the least. I am an obsessive kind of person so I have read almost everything related to TTCing, am intimately familiar with Fertility Friend and will most likely get an ovulation monitor because I do things whole hog.

I hope talking with all you ladies will make the time fly by and give me something to obsess about beside my wedding.

Well why don't you tell us a bit more about who you are and your wedding:)?

By the way I can totally relate to going all out. I already am planning on getting a fertility monitor (the watch one which you where at night) in addition to charting/temping and taking a Peruvian supplement which is supposed to help with fertility. I know it seems crazy to some but I can't imagine not doing everything possible to get my BFP when the time comes:)
