To my fellow April girls, i know we've talked about this before. I told my FI right when we started dating that I wanted a baby before I turned 30. (I turn 28 this fall) In my perfect world, I would go off my pill around July/August and we'll just start trying from there. (I've had major baby itch for the past year and am dying for a little one) I know part of him wants to be newleyweds for a bit too (I think most guys do because they don't get that itch like us girls), but I keep casually mentioning it and part of me thinks he'll come around. I'm not going to lie, I'm also worried that it might not be so easy to conceive. I've been on the pill since I was 15 due to issues with bad cramps. I'm scared that being on it so long may affect my ability to conceive early on? I don't know.
Lifestyle/health-wise, I consider myself to be a pretty healthy person already. My dr recommended I start taking folic acid a few years ago 'just incase' so i'm already doing that. (If you guys aren't taking it, you should be every day even if you're not trying yet!) One of the main reasons that I started running last year was so that I had a healthy exercise hobby that wasn't just riding (if you don't know I own a horse and am a rider). Once I'm a few months pregnant, for safety reasons, I'll most likely stop riding. I want to be able to run still so that I'm still moving. Running will also be an easy thing to get back into post-baby to start getting weight off.
