I would start on at least a multivitamin before you start trying.  Most people don’t get enough folic acid and that’s so important in the first part of the pregnancy (when you might not know you are pregnant).

Definitely agree with MissAsB… folic acid is key. it will way lower the risks for birth defects. My doctor recommended that I start folic acid 3 months before TTC.

I will also chime in and recommend you start prenatal vitamins prior to TTC (my doctor actually recommends 2 years prior to TTC if possible!)

My doctor also said just to make sure I’m taking a multivitamin.  Besides that I plan on getting more fit.  Duirng the wedding planning stress I really neglected my gym routine.  I want to start exercising again and get stronger so I know my body can handle the pregnancy.  I tend to get back pain pretty frequently and I know it gets worse with pregnancy so I want to get my core stronger so I can handle the extra weight and changes in my body.

Yeah, my ob/gyn dr told me to start taking multi-vitamins. Which I haven’t done yet. Sealed

I just wanted to share this in case it gives you a laugh. When I saw the title of your post, my immediate thoughts were candlelight, music, sexy lingerie.!
