Welcome to our humble home! I hope your stay here is short and very sweet!

As you are new to TTC I wouldn't initially get hung up on tracking your ovulation. Like Jaedrae said just have sex round about every other day, and if one of you doesn't fancy it then don't push it. The most important thing is to start taking a pre-natal. One with at least 400mcg of Folic Acid in.

When you start out it should be a fun time for you both, you shouldn't get hung up on doing this and that, and worrying unduly.

Another important thing to do is to write 'CD1' (stands for Cycle day one) on your calendar/diary when you get your first day of your period. Just make sure this is the first day of proper red blood flow, not the first day when you start spotting. Continue to do this each month as it will help you predict how long your cycles are, and more importantly when you are late!!

Don't forget for a lot of people TTC (trying to concieve) it happens within a few month without any problems, and you have no reason to believe that you and DH have anything to be concerned about!!

Wishing you lots and lots of luck Jen!

Oh and BTW don't worry about breast feeding it's not compulsory, and with the right support you might feel completely different about it when it comes to it.
