Hello, and congratulations to all the expecting mums out there!

As beautiful this phase is, being pregnant can be a bit overwhelming as you have to go into the littlest details out there. Only an expecting mother understands the struggles of nurturing. I don’t understand the extent of what they go through but can definitely help them to make their experience pleasurable and memorable.

This blog contains all the necessary details every pregnant woman out there should consider during or if wanting to get pregnant. All those questions that have been swarming your minds, I’ll try to help answer them as much as possible.

No all the things in this blog are applicable to every pregnant woman. Always consult your obstetrician in case of any confusion or emergency.

Question’s every expecting mother wonders?

Every mother out there knows what’s best for her and the baby. But, sometimes during your visit to the obstetrician, you forgot to ask some basic yet essential things.

To give your pregnancy the best possible start, the following points will help you better understand your conditions and ensure proper care of your unborn baby (or babies).

What’s the best age for getting pregnant?

Lots of women often wonder about the perfect age for pregnancy. Emotionally, there is no perfect age for getting pregnant. There are lots of women who have an amazing experience being pregnant at or over age 35.

But looking through medical perspective, the twenties is an accurate age as the person is healthier and fit. Women over at age 35, are more likely to have a Down’s baby (Don’t want to scare you or anything, just being cautious).

Be aware of your and partner’s Medical History

If you or your partner have any medical conditions, consult your obstetrician for any further treatments. Ideally, you and your partner should discuss this before trying for pregnancy.

There are some medical conditions like haemophilia and diabetes that have a chance of it getting passed on to your baby.

Is it healthy to give in to your Food cravings?

Food cravings are like a known fact, every woman has them during their pregnancy. But is it okay to give in to your fries or spicy food craving in the middle of the night? As far as your cravings are under the safety of you and your baby, you are okay!

Just try to stay as far as possible from alcohol and drugs. Also, avoid caffeinated drinks (wondering what’s left!). You can try Protinex Chocolate Powder, it comes with a rich chocolate flavour to ease your taste buds and cravings.

How much pregnant women should weigh?

Most pregnant women are concerned about their weights, to maintain a healthy body. If you must know, weight is measured in BMI (Body Mass Index). Having a normal BMI is considered best during the time you conceive.

Increased BMI will lead to complications during delivery like caesarean birth. At normal standards, women gain as much as 10 to 15 kg during their pregnancy. Just don’t stress yourself out and think too much about this.

What to absolutely avoid during pregnancy?

During pregnancy, women can go through lengths to make sure of their baby’s health and well-being. But even a small trivial thing can do a lot more harm than you can imagine.

Following are the activities that are an absolute No during or at the time of conceiving:

• Drinking
• Smoking
• Drugs
• Consult your doctor if you are taking any medications.
• Avoid food like undercooked meat, smoked seafood, raw eggs, unpasteurized dairy, etc.
• Don’t overdo your caffeine intake.
• Avoid changing cat and dog litters.
• Don’t paint.

There are a lot of don’ts, but hey! They will help you throughout the journey and make it pleasurable for you and your partner.

What extra you have to take?

Taking the right amount of nutrients is especially important during pregnancy, as pregnant women have to take care of both herself and their baby (or babies).

There are a variety of supplements available in the market that will fulfil all your nutrients requirements. Like Protinex Mama, that contains high-quality protein and nutrients, essential for both physical and brain development of the foetus.

Consult your doctor, if trying something new. Don’t be too hard on yourself and try to enjoy it. Always try to stay happy, as it will be beneficial for both you and your baby.
