    4 months to go before we start ttc and I need to sort my body out as I know that I don't eat healthly enough or do enough exercise

    Next month am going to start the folic acid and start to eat a more balanced diet - what else do I need to do ?? it is worth buying a pregnancy book ???

    Did you go to the doctors for advice ???
