Most women do not gain weight after stopping the Pill. There are no particular foods thast help with pregnancy, but you should take folate. If your BMI is less than 20, you may struggle to fall pregnant.

Natasha, please refer to the Top 5 questions.

You should not put on any weight if you go off the pill, usually it is the opposite, with women going on to the pill sometimes finding it makes them put on weight.
If you are going to go off the pill in order to try and fall pregnant, you should start taking folic acid - 1 tab a day and a good multivitamin which you can change for a multivitamin for pregnant women once you concieve.

If you are skinny because you dont eat properly then you will possibly have difficulties becoming pregnant, however if it is just genetic and you eat healthily and have good health then you should be fine.
It can take up to a year to fall pregnant once you come off the pill, so you need to be patient.
