Do I need to see my OB before trying to get pregnant

We're not really trying to get pregnant at the moment but will probably come to that decision really soon. My hubby is not quite on board just yet. I am already reading around a lot of trying to conceive boards and I can't wait until it's time! I have already come off the pill because it was causing me a lot of side effects and we're now using condoms but we do have some slips now and then. It is not totally impossible I will get pregnant very soon. 

So here's the question. I have heard that a lot of women go for a medical checkup with an OB before they start trying to get pregnant for the first time. Why is that? Do I need to see an OB? Have you done this?

Well, personally, i didn't check with an ob before i got pregnant. But i do know there are some important things you should take in consideration. For one thing, food is a very important thing. I guess it is very important that you should watch your diet, not drink alcohol and come off the cigarettes. Maybe think about using some supplements like folic acid. And vitamin E. I said for one, but that's already a couple of things isn't it? Maybe you want to have a serious look at your weight as well, if you're overweight maybe you should attempt to do a diet and if you're underweight that is bad as well. I don't know… perhaps you should see an ob before but i am sure that most women don't and most of their pregnancies go just fine. Good luck.
