  • This is a good time to ask questions you may have.
  • Also it feels good to know your body is healthy and ready to conceive! If there are things you could be doing to help your fertility, it’s important to learn those before trying to get pregnant!

8. Make a dentist appointment

  • In the little bit of research I did, I found that fluoride wasn’t the best thing for your body.. especially when trying to conceive.
  • It’s good to get any problems taken care of before getting pregnant!
