Preparing to Conceive

The most important thing to do when trying to get pregnant is to take care of your body. Eat healthy food. Include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet, especially leafy green vegetables that contain folic acid. You can start taking a prenatal vitamin or you can take a womens multi-vitamin and a folic acid supplement. Avoid high amounts of caffeine and medications that you would not take while pregnant. A pregnancy is often not detected until the 4th or 5th week so it is important to treat your body as though you are pregnant so that you can take care of your baby from the very beginning.

Good luck! You are starting a wonderful adventure.
