A few people had been asking me, “So when’s the 3rd one?”.
I wanted to reply… I just had my baby! And then I realized my baby is not so baby anymore. She’s going to be 3 this year!
Am I ready for a third one?
Well, honestly… no. Not now. Maybe I will be ready to get pregnant in 6-12 months from now (or maybe more), kalau diizinkan Tuhan. But for now, I’m just physically not ready. I’m overweight (trust me on this), I’m not fit and I’m always so tired. We all know that it’s best to get pregnant when you are fit and healthy so that is why I don’t want to get pregnant yet. I need to lose weight and get fit first!
Experts recommend women to start preparing for pregnancy as early as possible before trying to conceive. This includes lifestyle, nutrition, fitness, medication, emotional, environment and financial. It’s important to plan your pregnancy ahead to ensure a healthy pregnancy. A baby’s organs begin to form in the first few weeks of pregnancy and sufficient folate is critical for fetal development especially in the first 27 days of pregnancy – that’s before you even know you are pregnant!
Folate or Folic Acid, helps a baby’s neural tube, which is the part of the embryo that becomes the brain and spinal cord, to develop properly. This is a critical phase of development, so having sufficient level of folate as early as possible is important to prevent birth defects.
Women who are planning to get pregnant are required to take 400mcg of folic acid a day and Anmum Materna provides all of that when you drink 2 glasses a day, in addition to folate intake from a varied diet. Anmum Materna is the only high folic acid milk powder that is clinically tested. It’s no wonder why Anmum Materna is the pioneer and the number 1 brand of maternal milk in the market. Besides that, it also contains important nutrients such as calcium, iron and zinc, all of which are essential for pregnancy. Don’t wait until you’re pregnant to drink it; start drinking Anmum Materna if you’re ready to get pregnant!
