Just thinking about it...

Post by Jenbt85 » Sun May 18, 2014 6:35 pm

I might start posting in this space in a few months! In typical super organised fashion, I'm trying to remember stuff on the ttc "to do" list.

I'm going to get my vitamin D, iron and general vitamin levels checked before we start trying (given the restricted diet we've been on, I'm being over cautious).

My vaccines and Pap tests are up to date and I'll start taking pre natal vitamins / folic acid soon.

Is there anything else that I should consider? We're a few months off trying but I'm excited. I've been so sad that with the sleep deprivation that we couldn't have the smaller age gap between our children. DH seems to think we'd make it work. :) :)

Are you a big caffeine person? If you are, definitely wean yourself off of it slowly or else you'll get the nasty withdrawal headache.

Good luck!

I second weaning off caffeine.

Are you tracking your cycle?? If not, start that.

Other than what you've mentioned, I've rearranged half the house, browsed baby name websites, read up on tandem nursing, made a to do list, etc.
