Preparing to Conceive

The most important thing to do when trying to get pregnant is to take care of your body. Eat healthy food. Include a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet, especially leafy green vegetables that contain folic acid. You can start taking a prenatal vitamin or you can take a womens multi-vitamin and a folic acid supplement. Avoid high amounts of caffeine and medications that you would not take while pregnant. A pregnancy is often not detected until the 4th or 5th week so it is important to treat your body as though you are pregnant so that you can take care of your baby from the very beginning.

Good luck! You are starting a wonderful adventure.


Saliva Microscope

Saliva microscopes are cost-effective fertility monitors that show ferning patterns in saliva or cervical fluid. When a woman is about to ovulate her saliva produces a fern-like pattern when dried. This is what the saliva microscopes look for.


Lack Of Pregnancy Symptoms

It is possible to be pregnant and have no pregnancy symptoms whatsoever. Every pregnancy is different. In one of my pregnancies, I tested because I had NO symptoms, NO PMS and was indeed pregnant.


Pregnancy Symptoms Masking PMS

Sometimes early pregnancy symptoms will mask PMS. You may have cramps, headache, moodiness and bloating and be in early pregnancy.


Sperm Facts

Sperm can live up to 5 days inside the fallopian tubes. Female sperm are slower and live longer than the fast male sperm.


Luteal Phase

The luteal phase is the time from ovulation to menstruation. This time frame should be at least 10 days long. Anything under 10 days cannot sustain a pregnancy.
