Going off birth control...

So I have a potentially stupid question, but I have to ask.

My husband and I have decided we're ready to get pregnant. I've been on Seasonale for 3 1/2 years. We realized that in order to have a baby in April (the latest time of year we want to have a baby) we have to conceive in early-mid August.

If I stop taking my pill today, is there a possibility that I could conceive in August or would that simply be too small of a window for my body to go back to normal? I know everyone's different, but I just need to know if it's even a possibility? I tried doing some Google research but couldn't really get much of a picture.

So we Seasonale I get my period only every so often. I just ended my most recent period yesterday. It had lasted for about 2 1/2 weeks. My periods have lasted anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months when I get them, though I typically only get one every 4-5 months instead of every 3 months. My gyno and I have talked all about this and she's told me period weirdness happens with Seasonale, so not to worry.

The reason I want to know is because if it's impossible for me to become fertile again in a 2 month time span, then I won't go off my pills at all. My husband and I don't want a baby born any later in the year than April and, while we don't want to have to wait, would rather wait until next year than get pregnant too late. I don't want to go off the pill and have my body and my hormones get all upset at me only to have to go back on the pill come September. Know what I mean?

Any info is greatly, greatly appreciated. :D
