Welcome Coco! You've joined a thread with a great bunch of ladies! I actually started reading a bit. My friend from work gave me a preconception naturopath book, all about diet to prepare you and you partner...also read what to expect before you're expecting (was a bit dry). I really want to get Kaz Cooke's 'Up the duff' book. There are some awesome reviews on it....tempted to buy it now that I have been reminded
Rainbow,DH is fine just a lot on his plate atm with sorting this house stuff out, so his priorities aren't babies at the moment, which I completely understand. When we move in Sept that will change, he just wants to think about this right now...thanks for checking on me

As for announcement, I always liked the idea of getting DD a t-shirt about being a big sister or something that simple. The photo idea sounds really good though.

Im actually in the process of finding books, even DP asked if I could buy her some books to read related to IVF and stuff, hopefully will get some soon

Hope - I'm glad that you are okay it's completely understandable that he has got other things going through his head and that's why this thread is so good.. Allows us to let the excitement out somewhere - thanks kimnus!!!
H&H - that's awesome about your DP being interested in breast feeding. I would be interested to know what you are able to find out. DF also wants me to be able to feed bub. I also love the idea of DD wearing something to announce it - that would be so precious!
Coco - we bought a few books and started reading but I wanted to get smoking off the list before focussing on everything else. So now I should probably read them again. We are already taking pre-conception vitamins so that's a start as well How exciting about Europe! So jealous!
AFM - it's just making sure that I have the best little eggs possible for freezing as DF will be going through the pregnancy first - lucky her haha. I should probably shed a few kilos too!
Two girls, one dream and baby you are it!

Are any of you still on the BCP? If so, when do you plan on going off? I'd like to give myself 3 months before we start TTC.

We will be using IVF but if we were able to do it the natural way then I would stay on the pill until the month I wanted to TTC. I have been told when you come off the pill your fertility shoots through the roof for at least one cycle because you body tries to readjust etc. I remember my Dr saying that the pill can be powerful for contraception but equally as powerful for conception and not to just stop taking it and sleep around because I was asking for a baby haha. I don't think he got the concept of me being in a same sex relationship when he made that comment.
My friend is actually about to try going on the pill for a few months and coming off it again because she is having trouble with baby number 2. Her first was conceived the same month she stopped taking the pill but now she has been trying for almost a year with no luck. I told her about what my Dr said and she thinks it might be why she fell with her son straight away. I'll let you guys know how she goes.
I know that not everyone falls pregnant when stopping the pill but its just the increased chance that would make me use it up until I was ready to give it all I've got

Well that is interesting about the spike in fertility, I wonder if that contributed to my SIL's non identical twins. She's due this week eeek exciting...
I am still on BC. I will go off it in Nov I think.
