    Hiya :waves:

    I sound like a stuck record but.... lotsa fruit n veg... prenatal vitamins - esp Folic Acid (rant rant nag nag). cut back on caffeine and booze... not too much green tea in its place as it inhibits the absorption of the Folic... my GP's told me to up my red meat intake.
    Good luck! xx

    Fabulous!
    Pregnacare levels of Folic should be fine unless you have a family history of pregnancies affected by neural tube defects (spina bifida, anencephaly, acrania...) or you suffer from digestive problems (Crohns, IBS...) or you're on anti-epileptic medication. The first makes you high-risk for an NTD pregnancy, the latter two may inhibit your absorption of Folic Acid and your GP should put you onto the maximum dose of 5mg. More info available on thread entitled Folic Acid - The Truth About....

    Looking forward to seeing that elusive BFP :)
