How to Make a Baby - Part 1
Get a “Mum Bob”
Stop drinking alcohol
Take your vitamins
Download sound clip of a baby screaming and set it as an alarm at various points through the night (just kidding… but has anyone ever tried this??)
I’m just gonna stop here coz this is getting out of hand (were we crazy for initially thinking there was only supposed to be 1 step??)
So at this point, at least I’ve got 1 of these steps ticked off (to all our family and friends no I haven’t stopped drinking, there’s need to get all excited. I definitely got the “mum bob” though, and for those of you who are upset about it, you need to move on, it’s not your hair).
Seriously though, it feels like there are about a thousand different sources of information telling you what you should and shouldn’t do before trying to get pregnant. We’ve decided to throw all that advice stuff out the window and do what we think is best for us.
I have noticed that most of the preparation revolves around the mum-to-be making changes. While the future dad needs to be supportive, not a lot of the preparation seems to affect him.
Next step is...Visit the Doctor – maybe we should just get all our stuff checked out before we start this thing?
What about you, did you follow any of the “take these supplements” or “stop drinking coffee” advice before starting your family (or are you doing these things right now)? Did it seem to you like only the female had to make changes? We’d love to hear your experiences!
Other than that, stay tuned for How to Make a Baby – Part 2...coming soon 😉
