Hi Sonika, congratulations, you have taken the right decision. Don’t be stressed out about getting pregnant as it will hamper the mechanism of getting pregnant. You are young and have fairly nice height –weight combination. Only concern is the abdominal fat.
Yes abdominal fat can cause difficulties in conceiving. Fat cells stores the sex hormones named estrogen, obesity leads to excessive estrogen, and this in turn can lead to conditions like PCOD and irregular menstrual cycle.
Try to maintain healthy BMI index. Check the link to calculate your BMI. Get rid of that excess belly fat. Yoga will be definite remedy. SURYANAMSKAAR or the sun salutation is the best pose to loose extra belly fat.
The golden rules of overall healthy living applies here also.
• Eat well
• Exercise daily
• Be stress free
• Do yoga and meditation
• Get body checkup for any infections
• Avoid any type of intoxicating things like alcohol and drugs or smoking
• Avoid exposure to x-rays or MRI machines.
• Start pre-natal tablets
• Indulge in regular intercourse around your calculated ovulation date.
