Does Life Have To Change When You're Pregnant?

 Being pregnant is both an exciting and scary time in your life. Maybe you’ve been waiting for this day for a very long time? If so, it’s totally understandable that you’re apprehensive! And through this, you may be having some mixed feelings about the way your life is going to change over the next 9 months and beyond. 

And that’s what we’re here to talk about today; pregnancy is very much a big sign that your life is never going to be the same again, but do you really have to throw out everything you used to know and love? Let’s delve into that idea below.

You Can Still Commit to Your Hobbies

As long as your hobbies aren't too high energy, such as rock climbing or bungee jumping, you should be just fine to stick to the activities you love during pregnancy. Even exercise can be kept up with, as it’s actually good for your body as the baby grows and develops! 

So keep writing or painting, doing Yoga and hiking - pregnancy doesn’t have to be boring! And if you're someone who loves to travel, you can still head off on trips. However, if you’re worried about what flying might do to your pregnancy, you can check out some travel tips after IVF to soothe your mind. 

Diet Tweaks Can Be Incredibly Helpful

The way you eat can have a massive impact on how you feel during pregnancy, and it’s usually recommended that you increase your calorie intake by around 300. To do this, add a few more veggies to your plate, as they’re great for maintaining your own wellness as your baby develops. You can also fit a few more proteins and fiber in, as these will keep your organs running like clockwork. 

For example, anything nutrient rich, such as carrots and leafy greens or cooked chicken or turkey, make the perfect accompaniment to your plate at mealtimes. Of course, you should always talk to your doctor before you make any big changes to your diet; it’s not just you who’s eating here! 

Emotions Can Run High and Be Difficult to Deal With

You’re going through a huge turning point in your life right now, and your emotions are going to be all over the place. Never let these bottle up - talk them out, and make sure you’re getting what you need from any medical services and supportive family members around you. 

You don’t need to be aggressive, and if you feel that way it’s best to talk to your doctor or book a therapy session, but don’t trick yourself into thinking you’re becoming a burden either. Pregnancy is hard, and even if you just need a little compliment to boost your mood, ask for it! 

Life is going to change when you’re pregnant, no matter what. However, you can still feel like you by keeping to your usual routine, and always be sure to talk to your doctor about the way you’re feeling.
