The Techniques on Getting Pregnant – Advice From a Mother of 3
Article by Emma Wize
Seems like everyone has their own techniques on trying to get pregnant nowadays. These always remind me of old wives tales because, like opinions, everyone has at least one that they are convinced has mass potential. After sifting through a ton of opinions on the net that are sure to help a woman get pregnant fast how can you be sure of what works? Many of these techniques seem to repeat themselves, but since when does popularity equal effectiveness?
The only way to tell if a random technique used to get pregnant is really worthwhile is to examine the poster’s references and origins. Most doctors and professionals in the medical field have more experience with pregnancy cases and than people that picked various ideas off of the street. There have also been a lot of research conducted on pregnancy that only the right people would have access to, so it is important to look at the source before listening to whatever they have to say. I have searched through much of the “supposed facts” on various techniques on trying to get pregnant quickly so I have amassed sufficient resources that have helped me get pregnant in the past and have helped many of my friends that are trying to conceive.
So what works? Well, I can tell you right away that you can rule out sex positions almost entirely. While you’ll hear everywhere that sexual positions have the potential to make a huge difference, I have come to conclude, in my personal life as well as scientifically, that this “supposed fact” is simply not true. Most men’s little swimmers can swim up to 3 full days and can live up to 7 days in the woman’s body, so with such upstanding statistics, contorting your body to minimize the distance sperm have to travel is of little significance.
Besides knowing your ovulation cycle inside and out, a woman’s diet and exposure to stress have the most significance. Folic acid is of increasingly strong importance as it helps produce healthy red blood cells necessary for a successful conception and pregnancy. Folic acid is also extremely helpful during pregnancy as it helps to avoid birth defects such as spina bifida, miscarriage, and it helps pregnant women to fore go fatigue and weakness. Don’t forget to avoid caffeine, alcohol, nicotine-containing products such as cigarettes while eating a well-balanced diet packed full of citrus fruits, leafy vegetables, and calcium-rich foods such as cheeses and yogurts.
The other significant factor when dealing with various techniques on trying to get pregnant is the impact of stress on our bodies. Most of us completely disregard the fact that stress has a huge impact on the way we function mentally but this is even more apparent when we consider our bodily functions during conception and pregnancy. Stress reacts very negatively with your body and shuts the door for conception so try to avoid stress at all costs. If stress avoidance is absolutely impossible then try yoga, working out at the gym, or even a pilates class to relieve pent-up stress.
