Intro — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

Intro

Hi

I've been lurking on the board on and off for the past few weeks and I read all the sticky notes at the top too.  H & I were married about two weeks ago and because of our ages ( me -34 and him 41) we plan to TTC in the fall sometime.  I've been on BCP for 15 years with no break.  I have my annual with my gyn next week.  Are there any questions I should ask him during the appointment in preparing to TTC in the fall? Also I take daily vitamin supplements (Vitamin D and B12) should I ask the doctor about continuing those? 

Sorry if my questions are dumb my first time out.  I hope to hang around more as I begin to TTC in fall.  Feel free to ask any questions too. I look forward to getting to know you guys more.

  • Just a quick welcome, I think all women should take prenatals (folic acid) during child bearing years wether ttc or not.

  • I would ask your OB about getting on a Prenatal.  I have a prescription for one ($4 a month :) ), but I know a lot of the ladies here do an OTC one.  Whatever works for you. 

    I mentioned TTC to my OB and I got vaccinated for something (can't remember now what it was) that I needed, but other than that, they just said to call when I get pregnant. 

    Welcome and good luck!

  • Definitely start prenatals...my gyno suggested them for me 4 years ago (i wasn't TTC until just this month) and said "it has everything that a normal vitamin has, plus other good stuff.  And it makes your hair thicker and nails stronger, so there's no reason not to take them if you're child-bearing age."  It's good to strat them at least 2 months before TTC, so I'd advise doing that straight away.

     

    Also, my last trip to the gyno i told her i'd likely be TTC before my next annual exam, so she had my blood tested to make sure my major innoculations were up to date (MMR, chicken pox, etc).  Apparenlty MMR can be fatal to the baby if you get it while pregnant, so it can't hurt to be careful about that one.  I believe it's one of those vaccines that wares off for some people but not others.

  • I would take a prenatal vitamin in addition to your others. You could also call your OB's office and ask if your OB would like you to be taking anything else (my OB has me taking an extra 4mg folic acid per day), and if there are any labs they want to run pre-TTC (my OB did some basic blood work, which is how we found out my TSH was jacked up, so now we're treating that with medication).

    The biggies are the MMR (Measles, mups, rubella) and Tdap - which protects against a few things, but mainly pertussis (whooping cough) which is highly fatal to infants. Additionally, you may want to ask about the timing of your flu shot since you will be TTC in the fall. Other than that, have a pap and you should be good.

    Prenatals are always highly recommended and many women on here get on them 3-6 months or more out from TTC.

  • Welcome! I would ask about prenatals and make sure your vaccinations are up to date. I also made sure any medications I took would be safe during pregnancy.
