You will ask your fertility treatment doctor a million questions. All of these questions will be important to assisting you to understand the risks and realities ivolved in fertility treatment. However, once that's all cleared up and you've started treatments, you'll get to ask some of the more common questions that parents-to-be usually have. For example, after you've conceived, you'll get to ask, "is it a boy or a girl?" If you would prefer the answer to that question to lean one way or the other, you may want to consider working with a nutritionist during the time that you're trying to get pregnant using fertility treatments.
