I never have heard anything about being off the pill at least 2 months before getting pregnant. In fact many of my friends conceived pretty much the second they got off of the pill and they all had perfectly healthy and normal babies. In fact I heard that your body is ready to fire off those eggs the second you stop the pill, so that'd be a good time to conceive IMO.

If the pre-conception appointment is just going to be "go on pre-natal vitamins" then I wouldn't go if insurance isn't covering it and you are healthy. Women did it for hundreds of years without those appointments. So if money is tight or is an issue I'd either not go to the appointment or wait till you see your doctor in April.

How exciting! Congratulations to you and hubby and good luck TTC!
