I went off birth control exactly 1 1/2 years ago. My husband and I are coming up on our 2 year wedding anniversary next week and felt like it would be a blessing if we got pregnant at that time, but weren't feeling REALLY ready until recently. We started a business together and I wanted to stay focused on that, but now I'm really worried and hope there's not something serious going on. Has anyone else stopped having periods and then gotten pregnant? What did you have to do?
I'm also wondering how much diet and exercise really affect getting pregnant. I've been told to stop running and drinking alcohol. I don't really run or drink THAT much, so is that really going to make a difference?
Thanks for any advice on these topics you might have! CourtneyView Thread
