DH and I have decided to try to get pregnant after this summer. I am so so so excited! The idea of actually trying to get pregnant is bizarre haha.

DS will be 4 in September. We are in the middle of DH adopting DS, so all that should be solved by that time as well.

Again, I have never tried to plan this before. My annual pap is this month, so I will talk to my doctor about how to prepare. But I am impatient and want answers NOW!

How soon before ttc should I stop birth control pills? What about folic acid and prenatal vitamins? I want to be as healthy as possible!

DS is autistic. I love him exactly the way he is, but it has definitely been a struggle (for everyone). I realize there are people out there who have multiple children on the spectrum. I am hoping that the chances aren't as high since it will be with a different father. For the record, if I do have another special needs child, I will love him or her no matter what. It is just a thought that keeps creeping up.

Anyway, I am just really, really excited! I have never had this feeling before...looking at DH and loving him so much and CRAVING to be pregnant with HIS baby! YAY!

Bc is different for everyone. Some say it needs 3 months for you to be back to normal. I went off bc and I got pregnant 2wks later. I think like a month or so before to start taking prenatals. Good luck!!

Thanks! My prescription for my pills expires this month. Maybe I will stop taking them now and will just use condoms until we are ready. Of course, will talk to Dr and DH first

Took me 6 months to regulate coming off the ring. My sister went off it and that month got pregnant. Everyone's different. Goodluck!
