Simply Filling/Core - I have a secret...

...that I want to tell you all! I haven't told ANYONE, not even my mother, which is a big deal for me. Are you ready for it?? ;) I've gone off the pill!! Yes, that pill! :lol: I'm just so excited that I had to tell you all. But don't tell anyone, okay? :sssh: We don't want to tell our parents and get them all riled up, because it could take awhile and we would like for it to be a surprise. We aren't actively "trying" (you know, timing and charting things!) but we aren't trying to stop it either. :lol:
OK, I just had to share with the cyber aunts! Love ya'll!

:cb: GO MELISSA, GO AARON, GO SWIMMERS ... YOU CAN DO IT!!
This is great news! We'd better start fighting over who you're going to name it after! :lol:

:rofl: Swimmers...you're hilarious! Thanks Kathy! I'm trying not to make a big deal of it with DH. He's nervous about it of course and just kind of wants to see what happens.
Of course I'd like to lose 30 pounds before then! :lol: I'm really going to focus on some healthy eating and beginning an exercise routine.

Good luck Melissa! When I went off THE pill, I was pregnant within a month. All 3 of my girls were "first try." :)
I understand wanting to share with someone, but not alerting the family until you have something concrete to tell them. :lol:

When I went off the pill, I did not even get another period. Yep, pregnant. Pregnant with TWINS! Good luck. I don't recommend the twin thing!! Best wishes to a quick conception!

Very marvelous news - good for you! We await the other 'secret' news with great anticipation!!!

Be sure to drink plenty of orange juice! You need folic acid at the very beginning of pregnancy and since you don't know when that will be, you want to be prepared. You might want to go ahead and start prenatal vitamins! Good luck!:carrot:

Yes, I'd recommend starting either prenatal viatamins, or your regular vitamin plus a folic acid supplement. Helps with neural tube formation...

Well thanks everyone! I'm so glad that I can chat with you all about this. I'm bursting at the seams. :lol:
And yes, I was thinking about going and getting some OTC prenatals this afternoon. And thanks for the tip about OJ!
