If you've decided to dive deep into parenthood and are now planning a baby, there are a few things you need to do. While the idea of becoming a parent is fulfilling and exciting, with it comes to a range of responsibilities. So, it's better that you weigh out your plan of action before you take the plunge. When you are trying to conceive or getting pregnant, you should  keep a track of your ovulation days, and know some pregnancy tips and signs of pregnancy.

When you are trying to conceive or getting pregnant, you should  keep a track of your ovulation days, and know some pregnancy tips and signs of pregnancy. Get a check up and tests done and know for certain if you're ready for the journey. Let the doctor know the medications you are on - all of them. This would also be the best time to ask all the questions that have been creating a havoc in that mind of yours.

2. Watch your diet: Diet plays an important role when you're trying to conceive.

While intense workouts are not advised, you can go for light exercises such as walking, jogging, and swimming. You need to remain active and maintain a healthy weight when you're trying to conceive.
