Getting Ready For Baby

The pitter patter of tiny little feet, that smell of a newborn baby and the cute little toothless smile that it gives you, unconditional love with hugs and kisses whenever you need it, feeding time, bath, time, bedtime and play time, are all the reasons why you would want to have a baby.

Cradles, baby chairs, little babygrows and the kicking and screaming when your new baby finally comes into the world to greet you, are some of the most exciting and magical events that could happen in your life....if you are prepared and ready for it.

Having a baby takes a lot of work because it is a job that lasts forever and you need to be ready and prepared. If you have a partner then you have got to be certain that this is what you both want and that you will equally be supportive.

Once you have established that a baby is what you both want then it is time to start trying and here are a few simple and quick ways to fall pregnant.

Easy Ways to Fall Pregnant

  • Vitamins and nutrients are important for both you and your partner

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking

  • Avoid eating lots of meat and refined sugars

  • Ensure that you have a daily exercise routine to keep the bloof flowing and heart in tact

  • Eat Asparagus, banana's, Salmon, Citrus fruits, peas, Almonds and make sure that you get all your vitamins and minerals.

  • Don't drink too much coffee and keep your intake of water to eight glasses per day.

  • Have fun trying to conceive and don't make it a routine, just enjoy and everything will happen when it should.

  • Folic acid is important and it should be taken as a supplement before and during pregnancy.

Eating To Fall Pregnant

The snuggling up part is the fun part of trying to fall pregnant and it doesn't take days to fall pregnant, for some it takes months or even a couple of years, especially if you have been on the Pill for a long time.

The first step to getting pregnant is to ensure that you have a healthy diet and lifestyle which includes exercise and eating the correct foods.

Eating fresh fruits and vegetables from different colour groups ensures that you are getting the right vitamins and minerals into your body.

Green leafy vegetables like spinach, kale and broccoli are great to add to your diet. Get yourself berries, red peppers and tomato too.

Foods rich in zinc are important and Folic acid is a MUST. The idea here is to get your body full of all the right nutrients so that you are healthy and be sure to give this to your partner too.

Avoid alcohol and smoking as they take away all the nutrients in your body, which defeats the purpose. You also need to include dairy into your diet as well as protein and avoid too much caffeine.

A healthy diet is one that has all the food groups added to it and this means that you should include fruits, vegetables, protein and dairy into your diet on a regular basis.

To ensure that you fall pregnant quickly, have lots of spinach, broccoli and kale. Berries like blueberries, rasberries and strawberries are also great options and zinc can be found in Oysters if you can afford them.

It is important to be healthy and to include all the nutritious fruits and vegetables to your diet so that you can conceive when your body is ready.

Get Healthy Before Conception

Being underweight or overweight when trying to conceive can reduce your chances of falling pregnant drastically.

When you are trying to have a baby, consider that and ensure that you either pick up a few pounds or loose a few to ensure that you have a healthy pregnancy too. Overweight and pregnant women can have diabetes or blood pressure problems, causing complications in the pregnancy.

Get some exercise and you do not have to do hours of gym just be healthy and go for walks or do some cardio workouts for an hour a day.

Don't crash diet before you want to fall pregnant because being healthy is what it is about and losing weight takes time.

You also need to be healthy to be a mom because it takes all your energy and you can't afford to be sick or unhealthy when you become a parent.

Exercise and a healthy diet with all the vitamins and nutrients are important to start off with.

Making Love Regularly for Pregnancy

Making love is a very important part of falling pregnant and this has to be done many, many times before that happens.

Avoid having ovulation calendars and times for it as this adds pressure to a couple. Just have fun and do it as often as you can. Some couples take months to fall pregnant and some fall pregnant quickly, it depends on how often you try to it should be fun!

You do need to know when you are going to ovulate as sperm can stay in your body for up to six days. The best time to try is a few days before you ovulate.

Ensure that you do make love on a regualr basis so that your partners has strong sperm that will last. The less you do it, the weaker the sperm and with him in mind, alcohol, smoking and lack of initmacy can lessen the chances of falling pregnant.

So get active, have fun and don't make it a routine with added pressure, just do it as often as you possibly can and it will happen soon!

Foods for Fertility

Being healthy is important if you want to have a baby and that means that you should stay away from alcohol and if you smoke....quit!

There are foods that you can eat to give you a boost in fertility and the trick is to ensure that you have the right balance of vitamins and minerals in your body.

A big breakfast can increase your chances as well as the following foods;

Bananas as they have potassium in them and are a great source of vitamin C, vitamin B6, calcium and phosphorus. Banana's regulate hormones and a defficiency in B6 can lead to irregular menstruation, making the chances of conceiving difficult.

Asparagus is loaded with nutrients and antioxidants as well as being a source of vitamin A,C,E,K and it contains folate. Folic acid is extremely important in wanting to conceive.

Shellfish has vitamin B12 which helps with the strengthening of the endometrium lining in fertilisation, decreasing the chances of a miscarriage.

Eggs are high in vitamin D and this can increase the chances of conception.

Almonds help to protect sperm and egg DNA and it is good for men to eat as it promotes healthy sperm and it is also a good source of vitamin E.

Citrus fruits with vitamin C are good for balancing hormones and increasing the strength and power of the sperm cells. Studies have shown that men who are infertile, given 1000mg of vitamin C twice a day, have a chance of increasing their sperm cells.

Tofu is a good source of iron and if you cannot eat anything with iron in it, then this is for you. Iron increases ovulation and without it there is a lack of ovulation and poor egg health.

Salmon is a source of selenium which increases sperm fertility. It also has loads of antioxidants which protect the egg and sperm from free radicals and prevents the body from chromosome breakage.

Zinc is important to have strongth sperm and it aids women in balancing oestrogen and progesterone, zinc can be found in peas.
