Before conception I strongly advise you to keep your blood pressure well controlled. You should be avoiding a high salt intake in your diet and should try to "get fit for your pregnancy" with regular cardiovascular workout i.e.brisk 30 min walk 2-3 times weekly. You need to commence Folic Acid 5mg daily now while you trying to conceive. If you are a smoker, STOP NOW!
