Let’s face the facts, pregnancy can be one of the most difficult times in your life. There are many questions that mothers-to be will have, even if you think you know what to expect. You don’t want to miss out on any fun activities or concerns about your baby’s health. Here are some ways to put your mind at ease if you still have questions about motherhood.
Am I Pregnant? Can I get pregnant?
Although it sounds absurd, the first thing you’ll likely ask yourself after missing a cycle, feeling sick, or if you have experienced recent stressors or changes in your environment, or simply fluctuations in your hormones. You are amazing and capable of doing incredible things. All it takes to make everything go out of whack is one small change.
These questions can be answered. To confirm that you are able to get pregnant, you might first have a fertility test done on women. Next, schedule an appointment with your regular gynecologist to review the results. To ensure you are able to keep your pregnancy, make sure you follow up with any recommendations for neonatal vitamins.
What are the Top Things to Avoid During Pregnancy?
It is obvious that you must avoid certain things when carrying a child. As well as certain extreme sports, and alcohol, illicit substances such as cocaine and heroin are out. You may not know this, but many of those items you have on your vanity are prohibited. Some cosmetics such as hair dyes and tanning sprays can get into your bloodstream, which can cause complications in pregnancy.
Be aware that deep tissue massages or time spent on the UV bed can pose a danger to your unborn baby. You should avoid cleaning and paints. (Even though you and your child are not allergic to the fumes, it wouldn’t cause any harm. Let’s face it, who wants to be stuck doing chores every day while you’re pregnant or trying to sustain another life?
However, pregnancy shouldn’t stop you doing other important tasks. Pregnancy is a time to eat right, keep hydrated, take daily vitamins, and eat healthy. Get enough sleep but be active and alert while you are awake. You can build your relationships by attending classes with other mothers and making time for romantic dates with your partner or relaxing days on the town with friends. Take care of your mental well-being! Even a perfectly normal, stress-free, flawless pregnancy will have a negative impact on your mind, overall health, and mental well-being.
What Questions Should I Ask?
There are no dumb questions, especially when healthcare and pregnancy are discussed. There are many questions that your family doctor should ask you about pregnancy, so you can plan ahead for it. These are some of the important questions that you should ask your healthcare provider:
How much weight can I expect to gain in pregnancy and how quickly?
Are my symptoms normal and consistent with pregnancy? Is there anything that I have described raising concerns?
Which factors affect when and how long my child will live? How common is it for pregnancies to extend beyond the “due date” or arrive much earlier than planned?
Does my medical history (from procedures I had to have performed to hereditary disorders to illnesses I’ve treated) suggest that I should approach this baby differently to other mothers?
Take the time to meet with your healthcare providers. Make sure you ask all questions. Even if you feel silly asking the question, it is better to have the answers in place before complications arise. If you have family members who are helping you during this pregnancy, ensure they know the answers and can ask questions.
Is it time to make lifestyle changes?
Many of the changes associated with pregnancy are positive. The “mama glow”, awakening of dormant instincts and the possibility to try new foods and delights is just one example of the life-changing effects that pregnancy can bring. Even negative effects can be made positive if you realize that you are the responsible adult who makes decisions for your two lives.
As you grow into motherhood, even after giving birth to your child, so will your old pastimes. It’s not about you taking on risks and living with them. The risks and harms associated with these decisions are not up to the passenger. Some of the reckless and exhilarating decisions made in your youth and when you were just starting to discover yourself may need to be put on hold until you’re “grownup.”
Your lifestyle is more than your own. It is important to reflect on which activities you would like to continue after having children. Which should you abandon and focus on later when you are ready to move on to the next chapter in your life. Even for moms with many children, motherhood can be scary. Ask them all and do not be afraid to ask.
