Hi everyone, I've been a bit of a lurker here, but me and DH have decided that after this packet of condoms run out we're not buying anymore! (well - for a while!) So soon enough I'll be part of the TTC club too!

However.... my mind is full of questions and I wonder if any of you can help....

1. Will definitely need lube for the BD - is normal ok or should I buy some preseed?

2. Is there anything health wise I should do other than starting folic acid?

3. I have major body image issues - can anyone assure me that as long as I don't pig out and do gentle exercise I won't be a whale forever? I think I can cope with being larger for 9 months but I'm very scared of not being able to loose baby weight after.
OR - has anyone found that once they are pg and then a mummy that their issues with size disappear or relax a bit?

Thanks in advance for any answers

Some lube kills sperm. Best off with preseed!

Folic acid is good, other than that don't stop eating stuff like runny eggs 'just in case' - you never know how long it's going to take to get pg.

As for putting on weight.. well I wasn't bothered with either pg. I think as soon as you are pg your worries are concentrated around your baby rather than your weight gain.
