Bipasha Basu's pregnancy plans

While Kareena Kapoor Khan had her baby three years after her wedding and first enjoyed marital bliss before joining the parents' bandwagon, Bipasha plans to do the same, but not for so long.

In fact, she shared that she plans to wait for just two years before trying for a baby.

“I plan to wait two years. Karan and I love babies, but we still need to travel freely, enjoy our alone time together and plan the arrival of our baby carefully,” shared the 37-year-old Jism star.

Working through the pregnancy

She also shared that just as Kareena continued to work throughout her pregnancy, whether it be brand endorsement, magazine shoots or fashion shows, Basu plans to follow suit similarly.

"I will work till the last day of my life. Kareena made a beautiful statement for all mothers to be and I love that," shared the bubbly actor who married Grover on April 30, this year in a private traditional ceremony but followed it up with a star-studded reception for her colleagues.

She also shared that at the moment she is enjoying her time with her new husband and plans to keep the romance live till they plan the baby. "Karan has just written a song for me. He is extremely romantic and I feel like a princess with him,” she says.

The Alone actor is 37 at the moment and plans to wait for another two years, making her almost 39 plus by the time she conceives. But is that an easy age to conceive?

Conception after 35 years

We spoke to Dr Nupur Gupta, Gynaecologist and Obstetrician, Director, Well Women Clinic, Gurgaon, who shares that while it is quite easily possible, one must be cautious of a few things.

“Age is important factor for getting pregnant. But if a woman is following a healthy diet, regular exercise & healthy lifestyle then after 35 years of age also, she may carry pregnancy successfully,” says Dr Gupta adding, "If a woman wants to be pregnant after 35 then make conscious healthy choices. Taking care of yourself is the best thing to healthy outcome."

Dr Gupta recommends that women must keep a tab on the following checklist while considering getting pregnant at a later stage of their life:

  • Go for regular gynaecologist visits to discuss the overall issues and to correct any pre-existing diseases.
  • Seek regular prenatal care. “Regular prenatal visits help your health care provider monitor your health and your baby’s health. Mention any signs or symptoms that concern you. Talking to your health care provider is likely to put your mind at ease,” she says.
  • Start to eat a healthy diet and gain weight wisely, which means one must not eat for two.
  • Do regular physical activity to stay fit, healthy, active and energetic.
  • Avoid intake of alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs are off-limits during pregnancy.
  • Clear any medications or supplements with your health care provider ahead of time.
  • Learn about prenatal testing for chromosomal abnormalities.
