Congrats and GREAT for you to start preparing your body AHEAD of time!! :) Start making sure you are getting plenty from all food groups, take a prenatal with plenty of folic acid! After you get pregnant spend a little more and add a DHA supplement. If you don't like/ can't drink milk, be sure to add a calcium supplement as well, drink PLENTY of water! TRY to cut out or cut back all caffeine and sodas. Start tracking your cycles. If you aren't wanting to take your temp (I don't, personally, there is no way I could take it at the same time every day before I wake up!), a good site to use is www.mymonthlycycles.com you can input your cycles and it will tell you when you are at your most fertile. If you don't have a regular cycle, then I would recommend using an OPK starting your first month, they cost a bit, but take the guess work out of knowing when you ovulate. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can monitor your cervix for ovulation. You can look that up on google, there are plenty of great sites that will instruct you on how to safely do so. That's the physical stuff, as far as mentally, just relax and have fun! Know that it probably will not happen on the first try! Just enjoy this time with your hubby! Good luck to you! I wish you a happy and very healthy nine months!!
