Well This is the beginning of my second TTC month/cucle. Last month I learned how to chart my cycle, use my BBT & tempature to help determine ovulation, and research times of fertility. This month I am taking all my learned/gathered information into practice. I began to use fertilityaid supplements and prenantal vitamins this past weekend. Should I be taking both supplements or just one supplement at a time? I stopped taking any medications that are not safe to take while pregnant and I am buying books, budgeting and so forth.
I am 5 weeks pregnant and trying to determine a healthy diet for me and my baby. Before becoming pregnant, I was trying to lose weight and was on a 1500 calorie per day diet, losing about a pound a week. (I exercise 3-4 times per week, have a BMI of 22.5 and keep a detailed food log.)
Now that I am pregnant, I'm unsure how to adjust my diet. I no longer want to lose weight but I want to make healthy choices for both of us. I enjoy keeping a food log and like the idea of a concrete number in regards to calories to shoot for each day.
