    You should start taking elevit or other pregnancy vitamins to help prepare your body before you start ttc.

    Track your cycle and see if you can work out when you have ovulated. Cervical mucus is a good one to go by. Get an app to help track your cycles.

    I'd also go visit your GP for a chat. I had a blood test from that visit which found something that needed to be sorted prior to TTC.

    Pregnancy affects every woman differently. I can tell you that you will get hormonal, probably cry about nothing. Your partner may even think you have been possessed at times lol. But yeah like another lady mentioned, go on elevit which is a pregnancy multivitamin to prepare your body for pregnancy.

    Best advice I can give as someone who has done her research and is planning on TTC in the next year or two is make an appointment with your GP to take blood and see if you are low on anything/if there are any issues, get a pap smear if you haven't gotten one already, check BP and basically your overall health and ask about what you can do to stay in prime health. I would also be asking about what to expect in pregnancy and child birth so you know what you are getting yourself into at least a little.
