Hey people! I haven't been around here very much - my charts have just been ticking along, no muss no fuss.
Anyway... in a shocking turn of events, it turns out we might be TTC as early as THIS cycle or the next one! (I'm on CD12 now; my average O date is CD22.) I'm kind of nervous but very excited - picking up folic acid from the supermarket today, as well as stocking up on some stuff for bulk cooking (to get us through the first trimester) and buying some folate-rich foods. What else should I be doing, nutrition-wise? We're TF, more or less, so I'm going to try to get lots of nutrient-dense foods in me before morning sickness hits. ...Amazingly, the thought of morning sickness doesn't totally put me off the idea of pregnancy. Life is weird.
Does anyone have any data on how much charting decreases the number of cycles required to conceive? On average I mean, obviously. Google says it takes the average couple 6 months to conceive, but that presumably includes couples with fixable fertility issues (of the boxers-vs-briefs type, say); and doesn't TCOYF recommend seeing a doctor if you haven't conceived within 6 months, for charting couples?
