When you decide you are ready to conceive, it may be time to start making some lifestyle changes. You know there are a lot of things you can't do, eat, or drink once you're pregnant, but did you know you should also change your lifestyle when you're trying to conceive? Put out those cigarettes, pass on that glass of wine, and say goodbye to your cup of coffee. Your body may not always be a temple, and we all have our little indulgences, whether it's a fondness for desserts or a nightly glass of wine.
But when you begin to plan for a pregnancy, it's time to start thinking about someone else's health besides yours, because what happens to your body happens to your future baby, too. According to the experts at www.pregnancytips.org , it's not only drugs, alcohol and smoking that you need to be aware of - habits like junk food and over-exercising can interfere with your ability to conceive and potentially cause harm to your baby as well. So adopt your healthy lifestyle now, well in advance of conception. Begin taking prenatal vitamins while still trying to get pregnant, and get your body in tip-top shape now.
