    Default Should I go for Preconception Care

    Me and my Husband are planning to have our first baby, I am quite excited but scared on the other hand too. I am not sure if I am Physically ready for this move, so this friend of mine suggested me about Preconception care. Can you help me please telling me what to do and will my husband be OK if I tell him about this?

    I don't know what it is but if your husband is a little hesitant/scared of having a baby it's best not to pressure him with too much baby stuff. My husband knew I bought a Clear Blue Fertility Monitor but freaked out when I started using it and said he wasn't ready for a baby...of course, we got pregnant that cycle lol! So yeah, you don't have to hide conception stuff from him but don't always be "baby, baby, baby!" or he might freak out completely.

    well i am not quite sure as well about what it is about, it was just something I read here and thought would be of great help from my part, and my husband on the other hand is more excited about the baby than me, but I dont know how to tell him that I dont think I am ready yet, so I was planning to take this Preconception care along with my husband, but I think I might upset my husband with this, what do you think?

    Sorry, but that seems a bit OTT to me. If you are reasonably fit and healthy and have no reason to believe you will have trouble ttc, then just ditch the contraceptives and go for it no need to make it complicated.

    Seems very OTT to me. Just go your GP and have a chat (on your own, dh doesn't need to go) about TTCing. Get blood tests to check your rubella status, etc and talk about Ob's/hospitals that your GP recommends so you can think about it before you actually need to book in. And definitely start taking folic acid 500mcg once a day.
