Let’s be honest here, getting pregnant is easy for some women. I know women who have hit a home run the first time they ever played, if you catch my drift. But, for some of us, it can be the most stressful time in our lives. Waking up everyday, hoping, wishing that today will be the day you find out. Crossing your fingers when you’re a couple days late, only to find out it was just a fluke. I understand ladies; it’s tough. The crazy tricks that other mothers swear by aren’t working, and I’m here to tell you which ones work and which ones are wives tales.
A Rush of Blood to the Head: This one is where you stand on your head, so the sperm moves toward the egg. Sperm are chemically made to defy gravity, they don’t need any help.
At Least It’s Behind Closed Doors: Well, this involves getting down and dirty in the closet, standing up. Talk about a tight squeeze.
Breast Feeding = Birth Control: A lot of women seem to believe that, as soon as they stopped breast feeding, BAM! There’s another baby on the way. It’s actually just a coincidence.
A Spoon Full of Sugar: In the ’80s, women believed that chugging cough syrup would help you get pregnant. This theory was formed because they thought that it would thin the cervical mucus, making it easier for them to travel upstream.
Too Much of a Good Thing: While having lots of sex can’t hurt, it won’t necessarily help either. You can have sex multiple times a day, but if you aren’t ovulating, nothing is going to happen.
Now you know a few myths and legends about getting pregnant. But I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that are however extremely true and will help you get that ol’ baby bump.
Get Up!: Daily exercise will not only help you feel better, but your body will be in top physical condition, making it an ideal place for your baby to take shape.
Eat Right: You should be eating lots of protein. Stay away from fish; you run the risk of mercury poisoning.
Take Your Vitamins!: You should be taking Folic Acid, a synthetic form of folate that decreases the risk of birth defects that can take place even before you know you’re pregnant.
Become an Expert Tracker: You should be keeping track of your ovulation cycle. Women who have a 28 day cycle, day 14 is your most fertile day. But if you have a 30-day cycle, day 16 is the most fertile, and 32-dayers should go for it on day 18.
I’m So Sorry: The time has come for you to lay off the caffeine. That means no more coffee.
Well, that’s just about it! I hope I helped in some way! Good luck!!
