Stay Fertile.

I came across an article on Fertility and thought it is really funny! Ok, but I should take it seriously!

Couples should:
• Maintain a normal weight, exercise and eat a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and antioxidants (I am of normal weight so is baby, but we should exercise more and I should eat more fruits, vegetables and antioxidants.)
• Stop smoking – smoking impairs sperm quality and female smokers are 1.6 times more likely to be infertile (We are both non-smokers. Baby, stop thinking of the cigar you smoked at your boss’s place)
• Limit alcohol intake to two drinks per day (If you average it out, we are surely drinking less than two a day but we are looking at 4 glasses to 0)
• Use lubricants (if they use them) which will not hinder conception (We can explore. Haha)

Women should:
• Limit coffee intake to one cup a day; high levels of caffeine are associated with decreased fertility and an increased risk of miscarriage (I don’t drink coffee but I love tea.)
• Take folic acid to prevent certain birth defects (Not yet I guess)

Men should:
• Wear loose-fitting undergarments (This is the funny one! Yes but true! Skip those skinny jeans!)
• Avoid extremely hot temperatures, such as hot tubs or saunas (Another funny one. No more trips to Japan / Taiwan for their Onsen, haha)
