Selection of prenatal vitamins

Taking a multivitamin before you get pregnant is a quick and easy way to increase your chances of a healthy pregnancy and to prevent problems with your baby due to a lack of certain vitamins and minerals. You have certainly heard that taking 400 mcg of folic acid prior to

pregnancy can substantially decrease a baby’s risk of neural tube defects. When choosing the right multivitamin for you, there are a number of things to take into consideration. Ask yourself the following questions:

  •  Does this contain the right vitamins and minerals?
  • Is it safe to take during pregnancy?
  • In what form does it come?
  • How easy it is available?
  • How much does it cost?
  • Does it suitable for my digestive tract?
  • Does it contain Omega Fatty acids?
  • How many times a day should I take it?
  • How many capsules are in a dose?

You will be surprised to note that it is not necessary to take a prescription vitamin when trying to get pregnant or during pregnancy. While there are vitamins available under prescriptive labels, the majority do not differ

substantially from the over-the-counter products available at nearly any store. If you are already taking a multivitamin, you might simply ask your midwife or doctor it is fine to continue. The primary concerns are that a regular multivitamin might not contain enough folic acid and

too much vitamin-A. If you are consuming the proper levels of all these vitamins, your practitioner will most likely say to stick with that.

Pregnancy symptoms at 2 Weeks Pregnancy

The basal body temperature or BBT of a woman decreases to its lowest point just before the ovulation and then immediately increases about a half a degree as soon as ovulation occurs. You can detect it between 10-20 days of your period by a special digital basal thermometer. And if you track over the course of a few months, you will be able to notice a pattern to better predict and feel the magic moment happens to you each month.

Increased cervical mucus

If you have been monitoring your mucus during these TTC or Trying To conceive months, you already know that it changes consistently from week to week. Right now your mucus is probably thick, sticky and creamy, but as you head toward conception day the volume will increase and it will start to look cloudy.

Your baby at 2 Weeks Pregnancy

There is no baby or embryo yet, but the ovarian follicles are working to ripen the next egg.

But in 2 weeks pregnancy that is the week which immediately following week 1 of your pregnancy. The egg is working hard to gear up for the event that paves the way for baby i.e., the ovulation.

During this period the uterus has begun preparing for the arrival of a fertilized egg for implantation though you can’t be sure that the egg has successfully fused with sperm or not until next month.

Your body at 2 Weeks Pregnancy

Since it is often hard to be sure of the exact date when fertilization takes place, the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP) is used as a marker. In the first two weeks, the body is resetting the fertility cycle: in the first week, the previous month’s uterine lining sheds; in the second week, the uterine lining has begun to thicken in preparation for the next opportunity to conceive a baby. A new cycle is the beginning, one that is the starting point for your pregnancy.

Tips for you at 2 Weeks Pregnancy

Taking folic acid

Your body starts working harder and harder when you’re expecting, and it can’t make a baby all on its own. It requires plenty of nutrients including vitamins and minerals to build a baby

Get your body ready for baby by taking 400 mcg of folic acid daily before conception and prevent your baby from Neural Tube Defect.

Consult your doctor about the medicines you are taking

If you are taking prescription medicines or herbal medicines, consult your doctor as fast as possible that which one of them is safe and which could harm your baby. And if needed avoid them or ask to give you the alternate one.

Avoid drinking and smoking

Both parents should adopt a healthy lifestyle to increase your chances of getting pregnant. Stop smoking and drinking alcohol, reduce caffeine intake, and get regular exercise.

Best sex positions for Pregnancy

Any position can get you pregnant. Healthy sperm are excellent swimmers and determined on their mission. But, the missionary (man on top) allows for deeper penetration and brings the sperm in closer proximity to the cervix. In the standing and woman-on-top positions, gravity works against the swimming flow of sperms and thereby reducing the chances of getting pregnant.

Try to relax

Yoga? Meditation? Reading? Whatever it takes to relax, try to do it. Women who have the highest levels of a stress-related enzyme in their saliva called alpha-amylase were 29 percent less likely to get pregnant than those with the lowest levels, according to a study.

About your family’s medical records.

Your family medical history may be something about which you have a vague understanding. You know the major things, right? But do you, really? Most people are confident that they know who had what and when, but in a medical office, when pressed for details, most people come up short. Now that you are thinking about becoming pregnant, it’s a great time to sit down and find a way to collect that history and also to find a way to preserve that information so you can pass it along to your children and subsequent generations. This means that you will need a system of recording and updating information.
