There are certain points that you need to keep in mind if you are planning on extending your family. Here are certain aspects that you could reflect on:

Clean Up Your Diet

Kindly remove unhealthy foods from your diet. The healthier you are physically before pregnancy, the better the environment to maintain a healthy pregnancy. Opt organic, hormone-free and whole foods that nourish you.

Eat Warm Foods

Start pampering your body with warm foods like lentil soup, or stir-fried veggies and brown rice. The idea behind this is that a warm uterus is better for fertility.

Balance Your Hormones

Nourish your body and balance your hormones with smoothies  and a folic acid supplement. The smoothies mentioned here should have huge amount of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, omegas, and fiber, in an easy to digest form.

Such smoothies also ensure that you're getting enough folic acid — best to take at least 400 iu, at least three months before conceiving to help prevent neural tube defects like spina bifda.

Yoga

Practice different yoga poses like legs up the wall, butterfly, try reclining bound angle pose, an open-legged forward bend, the hip circles and more. It would be great if you can engage a yoga instructor as that will also set a routine for you.

Add Fertility Foods To Diet

Get yourself some yams, eggs, asparagus, almonds, salmon, leafy greens and organic grass-fed whole dairy.

Know Your Cycle

It is very important to know your period cycle. When you count your cycle, always start on the first day of your period, which is Day 1. If you have a 28-day cycle, the fertile window is normally two weeks before your next suspected period, so that would be around day 14.

Visit Your Dentist

During pregnancy, gums do tend to bleed and teeth can become loose. Do not panic! Also, periodontal disease is linked to preterm and underweight babies. Therefore, make sure you're up to date with your dental exams.

Heal Your Gut

It is advised that you take 50 to 80-billion-count probiotics, 4 to 8 ounces of aloe vera, and 1,500 mg of L-Glutamine daily for a few months pre-pregnancy.
