Six Months Pre TTC

   March is approaching, which means it will be six months until we start trying in September. My excitement is kind of dying down, I’m still excited and can’t wait, but I know we still have quite some time so I’ve slowed down a lot on research. Right now I’m focused on what we need to start doing to make sure that we will be able to be healthy and ready when we start trying to conceive. At this point I want to start taking prenatal vitamins, a lot of what I read says that you should start taking them when you start TTC, and a lot of what I read says that taking them at least six months before is a good idea. I feel like it’s better to be safe than sorry

   My husband is so excited to find out that we need to start having sex regularly. (TMI ALERT, skip this if you don’t want to know) Usually he makes it a point to make me orgasm first, he’s always been like that, so he is pretty excited that most of our sex will pretty much solely be on his orgasm. (END TMI) I want to start exercising regularly as well, my husband and I are working on getting a car with our tax return. I know I know, we don’t have a car and we’re talking about having a baby, we plan to get a get a car first and foremost. So once we get a car I want to start going to the gym we have on base, but for now I like to work out to some videos I have here at home and we try to take our dog on a long walk every night. Losing weight isn’t a huge deal to me, but making sure that I am healthy is a big deal for me. I know this sounds unrealistic, but I really don’t want to have to try for a long time, and I really want to be as healthy as I can so I can have a healthy baby, and be healthy for our baby. 

   We’ve made so many decisions already. I can’t stress enough how lucky I am that my husband is so supportive, I feel like such a hippy sometimes because of so many ideas I’ve had, and he gives me his opinion and we make decisions together, and most of the time he’s okay with it. He’s okay with cloth diapers, he’s okay with me wanting to encapsulate my placenta, he’s okay with me shoving vitamins down his throat so that he can have healthy spermies, haha, My point is that I’m so lucky that I have him. Even though I’ve wanted to be a mamma basically my entire life, and have been ready since the moment we got married, I never thought that I would be part of the crunchy world. I always knew I would make a great mom and wife, but I never thought that I would want to be such a natural mamma, and want to cloth diaper, make baby food, and breast feed for a long time. I want the best for our future baby, and I know that we will be able to provide that.

   So here we are, six months away, we definitely can’t wait, and even though it feels like it’s going to take forever, it will be here before we know it,
