Good News: You Can Have Kids and Be in Shape
You are not alone if you have been thinking about having kids. There are many reasons why one might want to start a family.
For some it may be because they feel like they don’t have enough time or energy to take care of themselves anymore, but there are others who just love children so much that it would make them happy to become parents. If you fall into either category then congratulations! You will most likely be able to give birth to healthy babies.
But what if you’re not sure? What if you still think it’s too risky, or even impossible?
Well, I’m here to tell you that you’re wrong! Having children is possible and very easy. All it takes is determination and commitment!
Why Get Pregnant Anyway?
There are several good reasons why you should consider getting pregnant anyway. First of all, you need to realize that your body needs time to recover from childbirth. During this recovery period, you’ll probably experience pain and discomfort. You may even develop postpartum depression (PPD). So the next logical step is to get back into the swing of things and enjoy life again! After all, it’s not going to be long before baby #2 arrives!
Another reason is financial. Having multiple children can be a blessing and a curse.
You’ll probably spend more money than you would like, but that’s what happens when you have multiple mouths to feed! However, let’s face it. Babies and kids are expensive, no matter how many of them there are. Unlike the old days when families were larger, you can take advantage of today’s technology to save money and time. Instead of making your own baby food from scratch, you can just buy the commercial stuff.
Your time is precious, especially if you have a job or other responsibilities. So keeping up with your children and meeting their needs is going to take up most of your day.
It would be much more cost-effective to hire a nanny or daycare to watch the kids so you can get your work done or do what you want.
You may be thinking, “Where am I going to find the extra money to pay for childcare?”
If you’re still on the fence about having children, now is the time to start a baby fund. Put away $50-$100 every month until you have enough to hire some help. If you start early enough, you should have no problem affording childcare. And that’s just one of the many benefits of having multiple children!
How to Get Pregnant
If you haven’t done so already, it’s time to see your doctor and get a check-up. Your medical history is very important and can play a role in how easy or difficult it is to get pregnant.
If you have any questions about your health, the best person to answer them is your doctor.
If you’ve never been on birth control before, then you should do that first before trying to get pregnant. Certain types of birth control are more effective than others, so make sure you choose one that works best for you.
Timing is everything when it comes to getting pregnant. With the help of your partner, you need to keep track of when you’re ovulating.
You may even want to try having sexual relations every day during that time. Don’t be surprised if it takes awhile before you get pregnant though. Statistically, it can take up to a year! So stay positive and don’t lose hope!
Finally, watch what you eat! Make sure you and your partner are eating a healthy diet.
Lots of protein and calcium-rich foods should suffice.
Once you have your first child, there may be more surprises in store for you! If you thought getting pregnant was tough, keeping the baby might be just as hard…or harder!
But we’ll talk more about that in a future article.
The first year of parenthood is a big challenge, but it’s also one of the most rewarding experiences you’ll ever have. Your child will keep you on your toes and give you a reason to live.
It’s up to you, as a parent, to mold your child into the person he or she is meant to be.
