How To Deal With Pregnancy
Getting pregnant and how to deal with it.
First of all I´m not going to tell you about the birds and bees. By now if you have been to school past the age of 14 years old you will know most things and what you missed at school you will have made up by reading any teenage or young womans magazine.
So, we all know it takes two to tango!
If you are planning on getting pregnant in the months running up you need to make sure you are healthy and exercise. Being a healthy weight can increase your ability to conceive. Your healthy diet should include plenty of fruit and vegetables especially those containing folic acid. Don´t over exert yourself in a crazy new exercise plan especially if you think you might be pregnant, but activities such as jogging and swimming shouldn't do any harm.
The next thing you need to do is keep track of your menstruation cycle begin to find out how regular you really are. This makes it a lot easier when predicting due dates and saves you the hassle of buying lots of pregnancy tests when you would probably not be due on for another week.
The next may seem like the most obvious but have lots of sex and most importantly enjoy it!
If you stress about getting pregnant and keep thinking about it especially during sex then you will probably ruin the experience for both yourself and your partner. It´s not supposed to be a chore! Besides, you always find out those people who think about it least seem to find it the easiest!
However it is important to consider certain things that can improve your chances of conceiving, for examples, lying down after sex for at least 30 minutes. I have heard that lying on your back with your feet in the air pretending you are on a bicycle can help. And even if it is not scientifically proven it will certainly be something to giggle about!
Most people suggest that you wait until you miss your first period before testing to see if you are pregnant. This is a sensible suggestion especially since your hormones will be at a more detectable level than before this date. However there are some symptoms that can give you an inkling into believing you may be pregnant. These include:
strange food cravings
fatigue or tiredness
However it must be said that these symptoms can also be attributed to several other conditions and the only sure way of knowing that you are pregnant is to visit your GP and have a blood or urine test to confirm.
I´m pregnant how do I deal with it?
This might be a question you are asking yourself. Whether it was a wanted or unwanted pregnancy your first step should be to visit your GP. They will be able to support your with your decisions.
If you were hoping to be pregnant then the next thing you need to do is take a look at your diet and lifestyle and consider whether it is healthy for you and your baby.
Research foods that are high in folic acid and add these to a balanced and healthy diet. Look at your job. If it entails you spending large amounts of time on your feet consider how you can reduce this. For example if you normally stand behind a desk but can have the option of a stool or chair then ensure you are spending less time on your feet.
Keep up your regular low impact exercise regime don´t start a newer higher impact one wishing you had been keeping fit before you conceived. Read lots of material on healthy and well balanced lifestyles and take it easy whenever you can.
