Focus on your weight before trying to get pregnant; you don’t want to be too overweight or too underweight. Being either can make pregnancy more difficult.

Do not diet during pregnant or while trying to get pregnant! Also, don’t take any diet pills or supplements unless you’re using reliable birth control. Talk with your doctor before you try to get pregnant if you’re thinking about dieting. Going on a diet may cause a temporary shortage of vitamins and minerals that both you and your baby need.
