People always say to stock up on your sleep when you’re pregnant because once the baby comes you’ll never be able to sleep again. Well, the reality is that you will most likely have a hard time sleeping when you’re pregnant, as well. You can be uncomfortable for a lot of your pregnancy, you may get leg cramps all night long, and chances are you’ll wake up multiple times to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. So, sleep as much as you can now before your whole life changes even while pregnant.
11. Ask Questions
If you’re thinking about getting pregnant, start asking your mom, sisters, aunts, grandmas and anyone else in the family about their experiences getting pregnant and being pregnant. See if it took them a long time to conceive, if they had any complications, and so on. Certain health conditions like these can run in the family so it will be important for you to know these things in case you may have to deal with them as well. It will be better to be prepared than it would be surprised to have them happen to you.
12. Check In With Your Doctor
Of course, one of the most important things you’ll want to do before you get pregnant is to see your doctor. You’ll want to make sure you are in a healthy state to conceive or if there are any health concerns you should know about. Most likely everything will check out and be just fine, but it will be safer for you and your baby to know before conceiving to have your doctor clear you for pregnancy.
