You have been trying to conceive for a long time now and have been experiencing bad luck. You have tried all other resorts but there’s still no success. The next step you must have considered taking to bring your little one into this world is In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).

While we do agree that there can be reasons other than fertility, such as lifestyle options, health issues and many more. But one thing that is common in all the cases is that while IVF can seem to be a long, intimidating process, it is a good option to consider for when you want to start your family.

So when you finally opt for IVF, it is very crucial to know that the first trimester, whether you conceive naturally or through any fertility treatment, utmost care has to be taken care since chances of a miscarriage are pretty high.

Other than what the doctor suggests you, there are some minor changes that you can make in your lifestyle that can ensure healthy well-being for you and your baby.


To help you make familiar with such changes, we have listed down 7 tips that you can include in your lifestyle for a successful IVF pregnancy:


  1. Do some exercise: In most instances, having some form of exercise is safe and is considered to be beneficial for your baby. It is recommended to have at most 20-30 minutes of exercise on some if not all days of the week. It helps with constipation and backache, improves your mood and energy, your posture and is seen to be improving your sleep pattern too. However, it is important to consult your doctor before you start any sort of new exercise, or if it can cause any harm, depending on your case.




  1. Big NO to Smoking and Alcohol: 

Before or after pregnancy, smoking and alcohol have a long-term, damaging bearing on your baby. After you have conceived, they are a big threat to your baby. Smoking during pregnancy can raise the risks of having preterm labor and can significantly affect the baby’s weight at birth.  

Alcohol, on the other hand, can lead to premature birth, affect a baby’s intellectual abilities and can even lead to a miscarriage.


  1. Eat Healthily:

When you start considering eating healthy, you are not only keeping yourself healthy, but you are also providing your baby with a healthy environment inside your womb to grow in. No matter what method you use to get pregnant, it is always crucial for a pregnant lady to follow an appropriate diet.

You should focus on eating foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fish, legumes, etc.

The main nutrients and vitamins required during this period are Calcium, Iron, Folic acid, Vitamin D, Vitamin C, along with healthy fats such as olive oil and nuts.

Avoid eating foods that are high in mercury, since they can harm your pregnancy. However, you should consider consulting your doctor before starting any new diet.


  1. Stay Hydrated:

Your and your baby’s health is very much dependant on how hydrated you are or how much water you have every day. You must drink 8 glasses of water a day!

It is essential to remember that you don’t have to wait to feel thirsty to drink water again, keeping sipping up some amount of water throughout the day.

Drink 2 glasses as soon as you wake up, and take a few sips before dozing off. Also, eat fruits and vegetables such as spinach, cucumber, and watermelon that have good water content to keep yourself hydrated.

It is not only good for your baby, but it also makes you feel a lot less nauseous and your skin will thank you for it!



  1. Sleep better: 

As for a night of normal healthy sleep, a pregnant lady should also aim to sleep for 8-9 hours a day. It is important to sleep in a completely dark room which encourages the secretion of melatonin, a hormone essential for healthy follicle development. It becomes important for the expected mother to not neglect sleep as well as create and stick to a sleeping schedule.

Ignoring sleep is harmful to the baby and gives a negative impact on your health too.


  1. Avoid stress: According to psychological researches, a low level of stress leads to higher levels of IVF success. However, it is humane to take a little stress about the new addition to your family, new lifestyle and the phase of labor and delivery. But even for any person, high levels of prolonged stress can cause health problems, imagine what it can do to a pregnant woman and her foetus. Such stress can cause premature birth, low weight at birth and sometimes even miscarriages.


  1. Relax wisely:

Relaxation is essential during pregnancy. But you have to be wise with the way of your relaxation.

Avoid using a sauna or jacuzzi since when you engage in such activities, it can overheat your body, which can lead to minor side effects such as feeling faint, nauseous or dehydrated as well as cause serious effects on the baby’s spinal cord and brain.

Hence, it is advisable to stay steer clear of Sauna or Jacuzzi.
