“Any good news?”
“Kuch hay kia?”
“Are you pregnant yet?”, “Let me tell you the tips to conceive baby!”
These are the questions/ comments most girls get to hear soon after getting married.
Where on one hand you want to say, “Give me a break!” or “Don’t you have anything else to worry about”, you start worrying. “Am I late?”, “Is there something wrong with me?” NO, there is nothing wrong with you. NO, you are not late. You cannot do anything about it as it is Allah’s will. It’s His timeline you will follow, not yours or not anyone else’s. However, if these questions are bothering you, here are a few tips to prepare your body and adjust your lifestyle to conceive your first baby; quick and easy.
Tips to conceive baby
Tip # 01 – Stress Less
The more you worry the less are the chances of conceiving. Instead of worrying about getting pregnant, enjoy the process. Enjoy your time with your spouse and get comfortable with him. Marriage isn’t all about getting pregnant and having kids. It’s about creating a bond with your spouse and building up a home where you can raise a family. So instead of stressing yourself with something that you can’t control, do something that you can; enjoy the journey.
Tip # 02 – Increase Water Intake
Drinking lots of water is good for your health. If you are trying to conceive your first baby, it is necessary for you to increase your water intake. Water helps in flushing out waste products from the body. Once your body is free from toxic wastes the amount of fertile cervical fluid increases that, in turn, increases the chances of conceiving quickly.
Tip # 03 – Balanced Diet
The chances of getting pregnant increase if you take a healthy balanced diet. Since your diet before and during pregnancy affects your child’s health, it is better for you to start taking a healthy diet before conceiving. Your diet should include whole grains, vegetable proteins, and unsaturated fats – not only for conceiving but maintaining a healthy lifestyle for your health and the health of your baby.
Tip # 04 – Start Taking Supplements
To prepare your body for conceiving, you need to increase the number of required nutrients in your body. The body goes through a lot during pregnancy and to meet the needs you need to start taking supplements. Folic acid (400 mcg), Vitamin B12, and I-arginine Vitamin D are particularly necessary for women who are trying to conceive. It is better to consult an expert before taking any kind of supplements and medications.
Tip # 05 – Regular Sex
Instead of overdoing it, make a routine of having regular sex. Extensive sex will only tire you and an exhausted body will not be able to conceive. It is better to have sex at least 3 times a week which will increase your chances of getting pregnant. Keep lying down for a while after having intercourse. This will help the sperm stay in place to meet the egg and increase the chances of conceiving.
Nothing matches the joy of getting pregnant with your first child. However, the wait can be frustrating for some women. These simple lifestyle changes may help you conceive your first baby sooner than you expect. It is going to be a 09-month long journey and a big responsibility, so gear up because conceiving is just the beginning of this roller coaster ride we call pregnancy.
