I plan to start taking folic acid at the start of May, as we plan to ttc from July. I wasn't going to take anything extra..

I took pregnancy vitamins the first time around but they made my morning (all day sickness) 10x worse. I've started taking folic acid now just in case we have a 'happy accident' before August.

I'm on seven seas trying to concieve. For the same reason as you really, as we're only waiting until summer because we think that's when I'll have my cycles back I want to be prepared for if they come back sooner so we can jump straight into trying.

Was quite fun when we thought I might ovulate this weekend getting some trying in lol. Even if I'm still no closer to knowing whether I did ovulate or not.

I hope it comes back quickly for you. You never know it might just catch you out without you noticing. It did with us, we had no idea & I wasn't taking folic acid which I was worried sick about until she was born. Thankfully she was fine though! So now I'm taking it on the off chance just to be safe.

I'm only taking calcium as I had high blood pressure for the last few months of pregnancy & was in & out of hospital being checked for pre eclampsia.

Oh no that doesn't sound good glad everything was okay with you and your little girl though.


Yeah my little boy was a surprise so I wasn't taking folic acid with him until I was around a month pregnant either. I've been taking the pre-conception tablets since before my depo ran out lol, just to be on the safe side this time around.

It could have been worse, I mean it wasn't serious, but it was a bit of a nightmare. Plus when I was in labour, because my blood pressure shot up I had to go on the drip to speed it up, and that was horrendous.

How old is your little boy?

He's 8 this summer, so not so little. Going to be a big age gap between him and any baby we have, but he's such a sweet little boy and will be a fab big brother. He's been asking for a baby brother or sister for a while (when he was younger he really wanted a sister now he's happy with either lol)



Anyway, I have what I'm hoping is big news. I started bleeding on Monday and it has continued and been quite heavy yesterday and today.... I'm actually having a period so I think I'm going to move onto the TTC a little early. I'm going to hang around here to see how you guys get on anyway and also as we're not going to track ovulation or anything until summer

That's brilliant news! Fingers crossed for you, hopefully you'll get a BFP soon! I'm so pleased for you!

My brother is 6 years older than me & he was such a good big brother when I was a baby. Even though he did want a brother.

Bad Wolf - Sorry to hear you had troubles before, hopefully taking early precautions of calcium will get rid of that worry this time around.

Donna - That's great news! Much earlier than expected. Should be able to move along on track now!

Speaking of which, does anyone use a fertility app or similar? I've got Ovia which just started using, inputting period data etc and it shows your fertile time frame. I'm inputting now for the next few months so on top of it all.

I'm completely new to the baby making game! Having to wait until summer due to OH medication (arthritis) which he has to come off for 6 months prior to be safe. It's a bummer as means a) we have to plan very far in advance when we'd like a child, which is great for this first one but if we'd like more that will surely be trickier. b) hope he doesn't go downhill in the months he's off it, which would be awful.

I use an app, I think it's called 'Life' just the free version & it's all I need. I used to have a great one called period diary but it got a bug & the days all got messed up.

I've used this one since I came off Depo & I've learnt so much like the signs of ovulation for me pinching pain in side, headache & stressful dreams for example.

Oh no, I hope he doesn't get into too much pain that must be awful. Will he be starting it again as soon as you get pregnant? Hope it happens quickly for you in summer. We're going to start in August.

Just downloaded Life also, will compare the two and see how they get on. My cycles still in the stages of starting up again so haven't spotted any tell-tale signs yet.

Thanks, same here! Unsure at the moment - I'd like him to stay off until we hit 12 weeks, to save having to wait another 6 months should something happen. That should be ok, his doctor was quite relaxed about it so should be possible. But our calendar is August too! Counting down the days haha

Yeah that's a good idea actually. But hopefully nothing shall happen!

Me too. We're waiting to see who takes over OHs company as he said if it doesn't go the way he hopes, he'll be going elsewhere. And so we'd have to wait a bit longer until he switched jobs and got settled etc. But we're almost certain it'll go as planned.

Looking forward to being pregnant over Christmas...
