Great article to point people in the right direction...I actually just had the meeting they suggested with my doctor last week. Glad I did because apparently she prefer women to take a multivitamin with folic acid for a year prior to conception and there are some genetics tests I need to have done. I also let her know I was planning on losing weight to be at a healthy weight for pregnancy...I am concerned about gestational diabetes; but she said that any size of woman potentially could get gestational diabetes and that heavier women are just a higher risk factor.
For those that wanted a eating plan for while pregnant Spark has a baby fit branch of their website: http://babyfit.sparkpeople.com/ I haven't looked at it yet to see if it has suggestions for pre-conception or not.
