Dh and I have decided to ttc next fall. Currently I have a list of things that I would like to do to prepare for ttc. I was just wondering what others were doing to prepare for the journey.

Here is my list:

Lose as much weight as I can. Right now I am considered obese by BMI standards. I weigh 171 lbs and am 5ft 5. I was also gestational diabetic with my last pregnancy and I hope being at a healthier start weight I might keep the diabetes away. (it can't hurt)

Exercise. I am the worst at exercising. i have recently started swimming and doing water aerobics at the local YMCA. I love the water so instead of making excuses of why I can't go, I am finding excuses to why I should go. Again this takes me back to GD. I really really really do not want to develop it again (and the odds are not in my favor) but at least if I do I will have exercise to help me.

Go off my antidepressant. I have done this. I weaned myself slowly for fear of the horrible withdrawls I had heard from the drug I was taking. Luckily I didn't have any.

Get into the habit of taking my vitamin every day. I am pretty good about this.

Drink more water...it is just good for you.

Lastly take out the IUD and have fun!!!!

Eating healthier, exercising in hopes of losing 30 lbs, saving up money, cut out most caffeine & all alcohol, reading reading reading about conception and pregnancy!
