    TTC commences for me very soon. Just wondering what I should start taking before I do... do you reccomend pregnacare? Or should I just take folic acid? anything else for the preperation of a lovely womb for our baby. I just want it all to go perfectly, and the healthiest possible way. I also wonder, as I am due to lose a little more weight before I ttc, can I still eat healthily (on my diet I eat 1700 calories a day) can I still eat this amount or will i have to up my intake, I just dont want to baloon up, without sounding selfish haha.

    Pregnacare is good to take as it contains not only folic acid but all the other vitamins youll need.

    My Dr. told me to start taking the Vitamins with the folic acid in it. Other than that, eat healthy. I quit smoking as well. Best of luck...I hope time flies for you to start TTC.

    Just make sure you eat healthy, plenty of green veg. Also take up exercise, if you don't already like swimming etc. Hope you get your BFP very soon.

    We have also just started ttc #2 and have just started taking folic acid with added calcium as its alot cheaper then the pregnancy vitamins.

    I was wondering about loosing weight at the same time as ttc, as i am dieting but I know you have to eat more calories once pregnant

    Thanks ladies!
    Yeah I think I will diet, it cant hurt to be slimmer, also I read your more likely to get preg if you arent over weight (which i AM a little)... so to get down to my ideal should be ok. I just wish babies could live off the fat stores you already have haha, and then you end up nice and slim everywhere except with a lovely bump. ahhh hahaxxx
