Once you decide you want to get pregnant, you may be super eager to make it happen! Getting pregnant is a wonderful event that is while satisfying and exciting, can also take some time.
Here are eight quality tips on getting pregnant:
1. Know your most fertile time
Generally, ovulation occurs about 14 days before your next period begins. So if your cycle is a 28-day one, that could make Day 14 of cycle your most fertile (Day 1 is the first day that your last period began). If yours is a 30-day cycle, Day 16 could be the time to go for it.
2. Track Ovulation
You can use an ovulation test kit or use an old fashioned method of tracking basal temperature. To do this, you’ll need an basal thermometer to chart the slight elevations in your body temperature upon awakening each day that signal your fertile time.
3. Watch for cervical mucus
This can be one of the best tips on getting pregnant since ovulation causes a change in the appearance and consistency of cervical mucus. By checking yourself each day, you’ll be able to see the “egg-white-like” vaginal discharge that indicates ovulation and fertile time.
4. Have sex
Missionary position is theorized to work with gravity to encourage semen flow toward the cervix to maximize the chance of a sperm uniting with the egg and causing conception – but studies tend to show POSITION DOESN’T MATTER! After ejaculation, the woman can remain on her back with her legs bent a few minutes to further maximize semen flow toward the uterus. These positions, of course, are not necessary as a woman can get pregnant after having sex in ANY position.
5. Stop smoking and stop drinking alcohol
Not only will doing so benefit your health, when you do become pregnant, you won’t expose the developing fetus to the harmful effects of smoking and alcohol.
6. Take the best vitamin/mineral/nutritional supplement you can find
Taking a cheap vitamin could be a waste of time and money. A high-quality prenatal vitamin may have higher product purity, nutritional value, and ingredient safety. Taking a high-quality, broad-spectrum nutritional supplement helps fill in the dietary gaps that everyone will have. The body needs and will use nutrients such as amino acids, antioxidants, bioflavanoids, neuronutrients, enzymes and other nutrients such as L-Carnosine, alpha lipoic acid, acetyl L-Carnitine and so on.
7. Adopt a healthy lifestyle
This is one of the most important best tips on getting pregnant. Healthy living includes having a sensible diet with nutritional supplements, adequate quality sleep, managing stress, reasonable exercise and weight management.
And finally, just relax and enjoy your partner. Trying too hard and stressing about getting pregnant can be highly counter-productive to getting pregnant.
