So I went to the doc today, and was talking to her about preconception vitamins, and she looked at all my level's from my blood tests last month and said all I should take in the months prior to actually conceiving is folate. Just plain old folate. I asked about all the preconception vitamins like elevit and blackmores and she said that at the moment, and up till I am actually pregnant that all I need is folate! so I suppose that is a plus, as she said it is about $10 for a month.
I also had a big chat with DH and he says he is ready to ttc, (well as ready as he will ever be) but he is just worried that if we sell the house and don't find one to buy straight away that we will end up in a shi**y little rental house. (rentals in the area that we want to live are pretty typically really small, and often really old and in need of work) and that is not how he wants to bring a baby into the world. I told him in no uncertain terms that we may end up renting for 12mths if we cant find a house and there was NO WAY I was waiting 12 mths to ttc! So we agreed that if the house has not sold in 3 mths that we will take it of the market and ttc straight away. And if it sells in that time, we will make sure that we either buy ASAP or rent a house that is 'acceptable' for him to have a baby in (fingers crossed I can actually make this plan happen)
He also agreed that it is a reasonable idea for me to go off the pill at the end of this packet, but he wants to use some other form of contraception in meantime before starting ttc. (Not sure if this will happen though, I may just get another prescription until we are actually going to start ttc. Will see how life is traveling in the coming weeks)
SO big weekend of decisions over here!!!
How was everyone elses weekend?
