Is your wife taking pre-natal vitamins? If not, she should begin taking them. Also - how long have you been trying?  if it's been over 6 mos, you should go see a dr to get your sperm tested to see if all is normal. if all is normal, then the dr might want to test your wife and find out why she was/is having irregular periods. your diet sounds good. I would maybe increase veggies and also start taking a multivitamin yourself.
