  • Are there ways to improve our chances of having a girl (or boy)?
  • Does stress affect fertility?
  • Should we be having sex every day? Every other day? Three times a day?
  • I’m 37. Does that mean I’ll have a harder time getting pregnant?
  • How long should we keep trying to conceive before we get some help?
  • What fertility treatments are available—and how will we be able to pay for them?
Expecting to expect? Plan ahead. Here’s everything you need to know to help prepare for the healthiest possible pregnancy and the healthiest possible baby. Filled with practical tips, empathetic advice, and savvy strategies, all designed to help you get that baby of your dreams on board faster. How to get your body into the best baby-making shape.
