My partner and I have decided to take the plunge and I will be removing my birth control in the next month or so to TTC #1 . We want to get my cycles back to normal and also use this time to thicken my cervix etc before we actually try but needless to say I'm very excited. I have read "what to expect before you're expecting" but is there anything you ladies would suggest we do during this time? We would like to go see a genetic counsellor but also don't know what we might need to do can a doctor arrange this at a pre-conception check up or do we need to pay? Also do any of you ladies recommend certain vaccinations prior? We want to be up to date and healthy. Any ideas or tips will be appreciated

Seeing your gp for a preconception check up is good, ask if you are up to date with vaccinations and check your immunity for rubella and things like that. Some things require a booster shot that you can't get done while pregnant because it's a live vaccine.
Also you should start taking a good prenatal vitamin now everyday. Apart from that my advice is to try not to try too hard too fast, it's easy to get overwhelmed and obsessed, just take it easy and have fun with your dp. Good luck

Star pretty much said it all so I won't bother repeating. But the pre preg checkup is very important, the doctor knows what to check for so just follow their lead. Start on vits now, as ideally you want to be on them for 1-3 months.
