Its wonderful to have a baby and start your family. This is what most people tell you. But listen to our truth; you need to live your life both as an individual and married couple before you plan for kids. So if you are planning to have a baby, you need to live up your life first. Do everything you want to before getting pregnant so that you don't regret later.

Many people say that life before having kids is not very different after you become a new parent. But strictly speaking, this is not true. Your life changes and changes forever after you become parents. Take a simple example, can you both go to a noisy pub party after you have kids? Or can you think of going on long romantic drives after you have kids? The answer certainly comes as a big NO.

So, we suggest you to travel wherever you ever wanted to before you get pregnant. This is because you will be stranded at home for atleast 2 years once the baby comes. Before having kids, you could just throw a few things into a bag and leave for a weekend trip. But, after having a baby you need to plan a lot and trust me the list is never ending!

This article is not to discourage you to have babies but, to inspire a married couple to live their life to the fullest before having kids.

Here is a to-do list that you simply must follow before you get pregnant.


Go To Noisy Parties

You cannot go to noisy parties with a baby sleeping in your arms. So party till you drop!


Wear All The Dry-Clean Materials

Materials like silk, cashmere and chiffon have to be dry cleaned every time you wear them. So wear
all such things before you have baby and you get your clothes soiled all the time.


Take Road Trips

It is very difficult to travel long distances by road with a baby in tow. So take all the ad-hoc road trips that you want to before getting pregnant.


Visit Sleazy Destinations

No matter how cool you are as parents, you really don't want to go to destinations like Bangkok or Las Vegas with your kids. Cover these places before hand.


Watch Adult Movies

After your kids are born, you don't want them to be exposed to violent or sensual content. So spend a day in bed watching all the adult movies that you wished to watch together as a couple.


Do Some Adventure Sports

Do all the bungee jumping, para-sailing, scuba diving etc before your baby arrives. This is because once your baby is born, he/she will be the one doing these antics.


Sleep, Sleep And Sleep Some More

Sleep is what you will really miss as new parents. So don't feel guilty about spending the whole weekend in bed.


Go For Wine Tasting Tours

This might be the last time you taste alcohol in a long-long time!


Splurge On The Parlour

Once you become a mom, you will hardly have time to notice a bad hair day.


Take Career Risks

If you want to grow in your career, you always have to take calculated risks. These risks must be taken before you have a baby so that you can have a stable career later.
