Getting to the Mountaintop

Several years ago, there were not many websites devoted to conception, birth, etc. when I was pregnant with my first child. I was forced to read pamphlets from my doctor's office, advice from older female relatives (being very careful because they are superstitious) and a generalized book on pregnancy that a friend had lend to me. So, imagine my surprise to find oodles of sites listed when I searched the Net simply using the word "pregnancy."

Do Certain Foods Help to Conceive?

Dear Nutritionist,
I was wondering if there are certain foods and vitamins to help conceive. I have two healthy boys. After having my boys I was on birth control for two years. First I tried the pill and that got me sick then I went on the shot for about 9 months and then took my self off the shot to try the patch so that I could get pregnant right away when were ready. The patch only lasted a day because it got me really sick. I took it off the second day.
