As some of you know my husband and I are going to start trying have a baby this fall. We are both really excited for this new chapter in our lives.

When trying to get pregnant what are your tips?

Physical? Diet? Sex positions?

I know some of them are old wives tales but they are fun?

Did you try any of them? What worked? What did not?

You know Lisa they have web sites dedicated to this kind of stuff

Books even.

You might get more "scientific responses" from sources like that.

If you're looking for old wive's tales, bullshit, drama, crass talk and cute anecdotal stories I'm sure you can find it in the MM fora.

So good luck, best wishes and IBTL.

Get a basal thermometer. Take your temperature every morning first thing before you even sit up. Record your temperature. The day is spikes is the day you're ovulating. Watch for a pattern, and start having as much sex as possible during and a few days before you're expecting to ovulate.
Keeping a healthy diet is good, although I cannot imagine any special diet specifically for the task. Certain common cooking herbs (like rosemary) and herbal teas can induce miscarriage, so take them out of your diet if you cook with them.
Talk to an OBGYN.

I thought it would be funny to hear the stories. It doesn't have to be gross.

I have heard people say some funny stuff. Like doing the candle stick for 10 minutes. One lady I knew swore by it to get pregnant. Lol smile

I will look at books and sources if I need to. I do t think I will have an issue getting pregnant when the time comes. I just thought it would be interesting to hear other people's experiences.

Lisa. It's MM.

By your own standards you're a born again Christian. It's going to get crass. You're going to get offended.

I'd be willing to bet the farm on it.

why o why...

for your own sake, I really wish you would have just googled this sad

but anyway, here are my tips

*give it time. especially if you're on birth control, your cycle may need a bit o time to stabilize (if you have a stable cycle, it's a lot easier to "calculate" your fertil dasys)

*have lots of sex. also on the non-fertil days. it's fun, keep it fun, not just for babymaking

*keep your legs up for a while afterwards

*your husbands could avoid wearing tight underwear or clothes, and taking long hot baths. apparantly pumpkinseeds are good fo fertility (for guys)

I can tell you a few things to do to help have a healthy pregnancy, but my only advice on getting pregnant- get drunk.  *gives 3 of her 4 kids the side-eye*

However, what you SHOULD be doing right now:

Get in good shape.  Pregnancy is physically demanding.
Start taking prenatals now.
Drink lots of water, eliminate as much soda/caffeine from your diet as you can now.
Make sure your teeth are in perfect condition before you conceive, unless you want to lose them.
Start saving money and stockpiling non-perishable baby supplies.  Babies are expensive.

I wish people would chill out. I am not easily offended. Talking about sex doesn't bother me especially in this context.

The few people who have responded have been totally fine in their answers. A few people have been messing around but that's to be expected.

Well, I don't know any tricks to GET pregnant, I usually manage it by just looking at my husband the wrong way.

BUT, I have heard that by timing you can increase your chances of having a girl. The further away from ovulation you have sex, the bigger your chances of conceiving a girl and the closer to ovulation, the bigger the chance of conceiving a boy.

Has something to do with the X sperm being slower to get to the egg but heartier. And the Y sperm being faster, but quicker to die.

So, take into account that sperm can live for up to 7 days in your vajayjay, and try to time intercourse that amount of time from ovulation, then cut him off. smile

Buy Hooked on Phonics -- I hear it's a real aphrodisiac. Do it before relations.

I think they have the dirty version for adults

How do you take on an overload of sperm and not get infections? I get yeast infections easy? If you do get them can you treat them like normal without hurting fertilization?

This.
Also, evening primrose oil during follicular phase and flaxseed oil during luteal.
Baby aspirin around ovulation.
Grapefruit juice or (if you're brave), guaifenesin over the counter around ovulation.

Clearblue fertility monitor's super-easy to use.  If you're willing to make the time investment, basal temperature monitoring is wonderful and can be used in conjunction with an online charting system such as fertilityfriend.com.  I also love my ovulation microscope -- you can get one on Amazon.  Your hormone levels cause little ferns in your spit when you're fertile.

Also, apply (pasteurized, if you're iffy) eggwhites liberally.  Before you do things.

Yeesh, I dunno. Never really had that problem except once in my teen years due to swimming in a lake and another from antibiotics. Hmmmm...

If he's uncircumcised, you may be getting yeast infections because he's not cleaning properly down there?

I'd say, make a steady diet of yogurt to keep your PH tip top. I mean a lot. Plus, it's very good for you. Avoid too many sugars. I think cutting down on soda if you're a soda addict will help tremendously with that.

Yeah, just increase yogurt consumption and cut the sugar back. And make sure his junk is squeaky clean. big_smile

Also, I do think infections down south can increase the chances of miscarriage, so I would talk to a doctor if you develop one after conceiving.

Seriously- It's not rocket science.  Assuming you are both healthy adults with no PECs, just have lots of unprotected sex.
