When you plan your pregnancy it is ideal to start taking Folic acid tablets 7 days before conception. Avoid drugs like isotretinoin, alcohol, benzodiazepines like anti-anxiety and anti-depressant drugs, warfarin. Are you on any medication Eat diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, green leafy vegetables, proteins, carbs to some extent. After getting your pregnancy test, make sure to go regularly for the Antenatal checkups.

Hi welcome to Health care magic,
I am sure your concern is elderly pregnancy as a risk but low acids will not be a major issue in getting pregnant.
I would suggest you a well balanced nutritiously alkaline diet to start from now and carry on throughout pregnancy to avoid indigestion problems.
Alkaline foods include bland cereal starchy preparations, fruits such as Apple, Papaya, melons , Chickoo, Plantains are a must in your diet.
Eat frequent small meals. 6-8 times a day. Also do not drink water in between your meals.
Use natural supplementation to help keep healthy levels of HCl in your stomach so you can safely and naturally break down and digest your foods for maximum absorption of key vitamins, minerals and nutrients.
