    Hi there. I have a book called Feeding the Bump by Lisa Neal..Its great..Its full of information and recipes for TTC and then for each trimester of pregnancy as well. I found it really helpful in understanding whats good for me. Its got some great recipes in it as well!! Maybe go have a squiz at it in your local bookstore?

    I recommend starting a folic acid supplement if you are not already taking one?

    Amongst some of the ones to avoid are rhubarb, peas (apparently a natural contraceptive), soy, seafood (with the exception of fish that is not high in mercury) and trans fats.

    That's all I can think of for now. I've got them written down somewhere...

    Thanks, there seems like so many do's and dont's and some even contradict each other it is very confusing.
