1. Find out exactly what your health insurance covers.

2. Explore your options for taking time off for medical appointments before the baby arrives and for parental leave after delivery

3. Get a physical. If you have been trying to get pregnant but haven't succeeded yet, both potential parents should consider getting a fertility assessment.

4. Improve your overall health.

5. Consider your space. Do you have space in your current home for a nursery?

6. Stop taking birth control pills at least two months before you want to become pregnant.

8. When you are ready to get pregnant, make sure you are having sex at the right time of the month.

9. Talk to your doctor about any medications, vitamins or herbal supplements you take.

10. Get expert diagnosis and treatment if you have difficulty conceiving.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
