To prepare for pregnancy, you’ll want to be in tip-top shape. Your body will be at its best when you’re nourished with plenty of water, vitamins, and nutrients. You should also get plenty of exercise, either at the gym or via some enjoyable hobby, like hiking or bike riding. You will want to get a physical examination, your partner should, too. Take a prenatal vitamin and folic acid, if your doctor recommends it; and eat a well- balanced varietal diet, chocked full of iron, calcium, and protein.
