Well, there is no doubt that pregnancy is a huge event. But unlike popular opinion, the confusions and dilemmas of pregnancy exceed the time lap of 9 months. It starts at conception and continues until your baby is a toddler, at least. So naturally, you would have lots of questions. Starting from the tip, we will be addressing some common conception FAQs.

This week on #LadiesAndBabies, we will answer some very frequent yet important questions regarding Pregnancy and conception.

Common Pregnancy and Conception FAQ

Conception FAQs are common among couples planning for pregnancy. The whats, whatnots, hows, whys are too overwhelming but easy to understand. Read on.

What should I do before I get pregnant to ensure a healthy pregnancy?

Maintaining health before, during and after pregnancy is a must. But it is no rocket science. A simple change of lifestyle can do wonders

  • Make sure you are perfectly healthy
  • Start exercising
  • Eat a well-balanced diet
  • Avoid drinking
  • Quit smoking
  • Talk to your partner about having a child
  • Visit your gynecologist

How do I know that I am pregnant?

Home pregnancy tests can help you to detect pregnancy.  This detection kit analyses urine samples. If your test results show a positive, you should visit your doctor to confirm it.

What changes would I need to make in my life?

Diet and Exercise

The major changes are about your dietary habits and lifestyle. You should aim to eat simple and nutritious meals. Choose foot items full of fiber, folic acid. Get all essential vitamins daily and fill your plate with green leafy vegetables and whole grains.

Avoid junk foods, excess oils, and anything that upsets your digestion. Avoid eating raw or uncured meat, cold ready-to-eat foods, and alcohol consumption.

If you are planning a pregnancy, moderate exercising is recommended. However, if you are already pregnant, you should talk to your doctor before continuing or starting exercise. Avoid lifting heavy weights and stretching yourselves too much.


Smoking cigarettes is anyway bad for your health. But it is crucial to quit when you are pregnant or planning to get pregnant. The sooner a person quits, the better it will be for conception. Smoking increases the risk of miscarriage and stillbirth and also means your baby can be born smaller and weaker.

Genetic Issues

Before a person decides to get pregnant, she, along with her partner, has to consult a genetic counselor. You should discuss the possibility of the baby being born with genetic disorders or birth defects, especially if the marriage is within the family.

What is antenatal care?

Antenatal care is the expert help offered by physicians to pregnant women. A person is offered appointments with a midwife or a doctor who specializes in handling pregnancy.

Which health problems should I expect?

Morning sicknessMorning sickness is present mostly during early pregnancy. It subsides by the second trimester.

  • Severe cramps
  • Back pain
  • Weakness
