Going Through a Fall Pregnancy? Here's How to Make it Fun!
Updated: Mar 15, 2020
A couple aged 29 to 33 with a normal functioning reproductive system has only a 20% to 25% chance of conceiving in any given month. That being said, if you're going through a pregnancy this season, you have countless opportunities to take advantage of the season's natural decor and livelihood while prioritizing womens health care every step of the way. Here are just a few fun ideas to help you have a memorable fall pregnancy.
Schedule a Fall Maternity Photography Session
This is one adorable and memorable way to make the most of your fall pregnancy. Maternity photoshoots are becoming more popular, and the natural fall foliage provides a stunning backdrop for any occasion. If you can't afford a professional photography session, that's alright -- just grab a friend with a camera!
Take Advantage of Yummy Fall Health Foods
Okay, not all seasonal fall favorites are healthy...but you're eating for two, right? That means you shouldn't hesitate to indulge in some of your festive fall favorites.
"Now is the time when farmers' markets are bursting with pumpkins, root veggies, apple cider, and apple-cider donuts. (Yum!) Go ahead and satisfy your pregnancy cravings (a warm bowl of butternut-squash soup? Yes, please!) Just make sure that cider is pasteurized," writes Meredith Franco Meyers in Parents Magazine.
Rock the Baby Bump
Finally, no maternity Halloween costume is complete until your bump is thoroughly dressed up. Many women opt for a traditional pumpkin-painted baby bump, but don't hesitate to get creative with your maternity Halloween costume -- after all, this may be your only chance you have. Go all out!
Don't Forget Exercise
Getting physical activity is important in any pregnancy, but fall makes it easier than ever to have fun while you work out without the sweltering heat of summer. Raking leaves, for example, can be a fun activity that the whole family can get in on. Spending time outdoors is sure to boost your mood as well.
Ultimately, there are no limits when it comes to making the most of your fall pregnancy. As long as you make regular trips to your gynecologist and OBGYN, you're free to be creative and enjoy this special time. For more information about OBGYN specialists, contact WomanCare PC.
