As it’s a new post for a new year, I hope you don’t mind me
sticking my beak in.
Me and my partner have wanted a child for years but we
decided for various reasons to wait until we were married. We’re getting
married in three weeks! So after my next AF I will be TTC.
We’ve never tried to conceive before, so we plan to be
relaxed about it at first, mainly because I know I will be constantly checking
symptoms and worrying about everything! We’re in our early thirties, so no rush
yet, but we’d rather try now just in case we have difficulties. If we conceive
quickly, then great, but if not we’ll enjoy being a married couple for a while
and reconsider how we go about this further down the road.
Anyway, I just wondered if anyone had any must-have tips for
one who has never TTC before?! I’ve been tracking my periods for several years,
so I’m fairly in tune with what happens to my body at different times of the
month, and I have been taking folic acid for the last month in preparation. I’m
also slowly trying to wean myself off alcohol and caffeine (although going wine
tasting tonight! Enjoying it before I go properly dry!).
Wishing you all the best in your journeys, I really hope you
all have your BFPs before I even take my first HPT!
