How to Make a Baby – Part 2

So, I’ve been to the Doctor. I wasn’t sure if there was a real need, but now that I’ve been for a check-up, I’m glad I went.

I didn’t realise there were SO MANY things they test for when you’re planning a pregnancy!

So what to do next? While we wait on my blood test results, I guess I’ll check out the chemist and get started on taking some vitamins. I must admit, I was fairly anti-vitamin taking prior to the visit, but it looks like the benefits of taking folic acid (significant reduction in the risk associated with your baby being born with neural tube defects) far out way any apparent risks.

The bad news for me is I have to stop taking my other vitamins. I’m not really a health nut but I do take a lot of triple strength garlic, horseradish, vitamin C every day because it helps so much with my hay fever.

The funny thing is, I was advised that “Polaramine” would be safe to take during pregnancy… so vitamins are a no-no but a drug full of chemicals is OK!?

Go figure!

It’s safe to say I won’t be taking any anti-histamines and will just put up with a sniffily nose for the next 12 months or so.

What about you? Were you given any seemingly contradictory advice? Did you have to give up something when you wanted to have a baby? Were you surprised by the number of things they test for? Look forward to hearing about your experiences!
