I am getting my Mirena removed so that hubby & I can start TTC in August at the earliest :) Our daughter is 6, so it's been a while since I've been pregnant! And she wasn't planned, so this will be our only time to actually be planning ahead! ha! What are some questions I might ask my doctor on Wednesday?
