It is a milestone in every woman’s life when she finally decides to take a step ahead and start a family of her own. The moment is a blend of joy, nervousness, and also anxiousness. So here we give you 5 things that you must do before you decide to get pregnant—
- Have a heart to heart conversation with your spouse
You need to have an open discussion with your husband from A to Z when it comes to the matter of extending your family. From money, to medical insurance, the discussion should be productive, no matter how many days it takes for the thought process to work so that you both can finally reach a common ground in unison. This will keep things a lot simpler.
- Don’t forget to keep a tab on your weight
It is scientifically stated that the more adequate your weight is according to your age and height, the easier it will be for you to conceive with lesser chances of complications. Overweight or underweight women have many problems with pregnancy, so make sure you keep a tab on your weight.
- Have a healthy diet
People advise women to start eating healthy once they conceive, but truth is you have to start this habit way before you get pregnant to make sure your body isn’t loaded with junk.
- Book an appointment with your dentist
Many women may not know this but pregnancy can really take a toll on their oral care, wherein hormonal imbalances during the whole 9 months can actually lead to problems in gums, such as bleeding and swelling, so before things turn that bad, make sure you are safe than sorry and visit your dentist to make sure everything is fine beforehand.
- Pursue your hobbies more often
This is a must, because once you get pregnant, your ‘me-time’ will gradually start reducing and as soon as your baby arrives, a lot of your hobbies and likes have to take a backseat. So while you are at it, make the most of the pre-pregnancy phase and step out of your house, watch movies, eat good healthy food, draw, sing, as much as you want!
