I'm very excited to have had the opportunity to ask the wonderful Nat Kringoudis about the pill and the effects that it has on our body, trying to get pregnant and ovulating.
If you are thinking about getting pregnant and are currently on the pill or have just come off it, you are going to love this interview.
I was on the pill for 12 years before I went off it last February. My hubby and I then started trying for a baby 4 months later. It blew my mind how the pill had effected my body, I hadn't had period pain and acne issues ever but it hit me full on when I stopped taking the pill. It scared me and I decided to read up on what the pill actually does to your body. It is a worry and I won't ever be going back on it.
Over to Nat now with some great advice and information...
Are you suffering from pregnancy insomnia? I know I am. It started for me when I hit about 30 weeks or so. When did it start for you?
Pregnancy insomnia can be caused by a few things such as the hormones racing around your body, getting up frequently to go to the toilet, your mind racing from excitement or nervousness about what is ahead, your baby is a night owl and likes to move around when you are trying to sleep or being uncomfortable and sore from back aches and cramps.
I am fine getting to sleep but when I wake up to go to the toilet about 80% of the time I can't get back to sleep straight away. Some nights I am tossing and turning for 2 hours. It really is annoying. But I found the more frustrated I get, the harder it is to get back to sleep.
I wanted to share with you some things I am doing to get through this annoying part of the night during pregnancy and hopefully it can help you too.
Pregnancy is wonderful and so special but it does come with some not so great side effects. So today I have put together a video blog (vlog) for you where I talk about the side effects that have come up for me and how I am managing them with love and self-care.
The side effects I am covering in my video are:
+ Vitamin D deficiency
+ Your growing belly
+ Dry nipples
+ Looking after your feet
+ Back pain
