When to start Prenatal's?

Hello!

DH and I are planning to start TTC in October. What is the optimal amount of time to start prenatals? I am 39 and will be 40 before the birth, so I want to make sure I'm "priming" my ovaries. This will be my fifth baby, so my body knows what to do and has always performed wonderfully, but I would still like to help out as much as possible.

Any other advice for advanced maternal age would be great!

As soon as possible, preferably at least 3 months prior to TTC. You might also want to consider taking some of the supplements that have been shown to help with egg quality, such as CoQ10.

DH and I both took prenatals for four months before TTC, and he has really low sperm count. I conceived within a week of trying!
