It’s baby-making time! Also known as the time when women tend to turn just a wee bit crazy in order to ensure sperm meets egg.
Sure, not all couples go through the whole rigmarole that is trying for a baby. Sometimes it happens naturally. Sometimes it happens unexpectedly. But sometimes, it takes a bit of time, patience and planning to get there.
If you fall into the latter category, then you probably remember these things all too well. And, if you’re currently trying for a baby, then let us delve into the things that preparing for pregnancy does to us.
1. We turn into crazy demonic sex addicts
Driven by a timer and a tracker. Our only mission? Sperm.
Sorry, husbands, but we don’t really care if you’re in the middle of a meeting. If you’re not ready to make a baby, in ten minutes or less, then you’re not getting dinner tonight. Truth.
2. We buy ALL THE PREGNANCY TESTS
Seriously, why buy one when you can purchase 15 and pee on one every morning. It’s pretty much the pregnancy equivalent to a Christmas Advent calendar. But instead of a chocolate a day, you get a brand new urine stick.
3. We Google obsessively
“Best sex position to fall pregnant”, “Foods that help you conceive”, “Cervical mucus during ovulation”. Yep. Yep. And yep.
4. We spend a lot of time upside down with our legs in the air
Come on little fellas, swim down!
5. We secretly start writing a list of baby names we like
Possible middle name combinations too.
6. We fake laugh whenever someone mentions “trying for a baby”
Pfft… us? No (nervous giggle). Wait, did my ovulation timer just ding?
7. We change our husband’s underwear
No tighty whiteys until there is a positive line.
8. We get crabby if we sleep in
And happen to miss getting an accurate basal body temperature reading.
9. We turn into health conscious nutbags
No chemicals. No pollutants. No foods that could potentially cause food poisoning. And don’t even think about waving that wine glass near me…
Sure, I might not be pregnant yet. But I could be.
10. We learn a whole new language
Yes, we’re TTC, I’m 2DPO but now it’s a 2WW before POS. All I want is a BFP but expecting a BFN. FML!
11. We check our symptoms every hour or so
My boobs do seem a bit more tender than they did ten minutes ago.
Take the crazy out of conception with the conceiveplease Fertility Kit
We’ve all been there. We’ve all done the upside turtle after sex in an attempt to help things along. We’ve all spent hours googling. And we’ve all cursed the skies when we get our periods instead of a positive line.
The truth is trying for a baby is actually pretty stressful on your mind, body and relationship, especially if it’s taking longer than you had hoped. The more you know about your menstrual cycle, ovulation and fertility, the better your chances will be. However, it can be hard to know what to believe these days, especially when Dr Google keeps adding different forums, articles and stories for us to read.
If you are looking for a way to eliminate the stress (and the need to ask the chemist to restock their pregnancy tests… again), then have a look at the conceiveplease Fertility Kit.
This all in one clever, clinically-proven, four step kit comes with everything you and your partner need to boost your chances of pregnancy.
There’s vitamins for him, which, are appropriately called SpermPlus, and vitamins for you, which contain 16 essential minerals and vitamins plus the right amounts of folic acid and iodine per tablet.
There’s also five ovulation tests, a digital thermometer to measure your basal body temp, a Fertility Calendar, so you’re prepared, every step of the way. You can use these to track when the best days are for some sexy times to maximise your chances of conceiving – a much more sensible way to go about making a baby.
There’s two early detection pregnancy tests to help you discover when baby’s on board. Plus, the kit includes a “Getting Pregnant Naturally” Fertility Book (no need to rely on Dr Google) and a meditation CD to help keep you relaxed during the TTC journey.
It comes with all you need to fall pregnant. And sooner! Take Aerin, for example, a mum who fell pregnant within one month of using the conceiveplease Fertility Kit.
The kit was helpful, cost-effective and contained everything I needed to prepare for pregnancy and conception. It was reassuring to be using a fertility kit developed by Australian fertility experts, because I knew we were doing everything we could from the outset to correctly manage our fertility.” – Aerin, mum to Alexander
Get the right information, accurately track ovulation and take control of trying for a baby with the conceiveplease Fertility Kit. You’ve got an entire pregnancy to turn into a hormone-driven, fire-breathing, pickle-demanding dragon. Save the crazy for then.
