The most important and special time of your life is when you trying to bring a new member in your family.
There are various things which everyone will suggest you to avoid when you become pregnant:
• Caffeine and this list go on.
But have you ever thought about the Pre-Pregnancy precautions?
Are you aware about the do’s and dont’s before pregnancy?
Does this matter?
And the simple answer to these questions is YES.
There are several things that you and your spouse can do (and should not do) to boost your chances of pregnancy. In this article, we have mentioned some pre-pregnancy do’s and don’ts because it relates to diet, exercise/fitness and your lifestyle.
• DO take the proper vitamins and supplements
• DO take prenatal vitamins with required folic acid and DHA, as suggested by your doctor.
• DO avoid Alcohol
• DO limit caffeine.
• DO increase the consumption of green veggies and fruits.
• DO increase the consumption of whole food, plant-based diet (fruits, veggies, nuts, unprocessed grains etc).
• DO drink filtered water (unfiltered water is ridden chemically, like chlorine).
• DON’T eat processed, packaged or “Junk” foods.
• DON’T consume plenty of dairy product.
• DO exercise on daily basis. Being in good condition is important for early fetal development.
• Do go for 30 minutes of walk daily.
• DON’T lift heavy objects.
• DON’T do plenty of work or high-impact, intense sports like running, boot-camp.
• DO get eight hours of sleep per night. Less than eight hours of sleep may cause a drop in the hormones that are essential to conception.
• DON’T stress. Women who have stress typically have a harder time getting pregnant, since stress affects the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that tells your ovaries to release eggs.
There is a possibility that there might be days when you feel like getting pregnant is out of your control, but the reality is not the same always. There are a lot of things that you and your partner can follow to increase the chances of having a baby.
Always keep in mind that everyone is different, so before starting anything new, you should talk with your doctor or fertility specialist to make sure that it’s the right decision for you.
