Today I’m going to be sharing with you my best tips and hacks on how to conceive naturally fast. So bare with me on this video, because some of it is a little bit TMI and makes me a little bit squeamish. But I think that my tips could really, really help you,because we have three children and we’ve never been the type of couple that has ever had like,a surprise, or an oops, or anything like that. Each time, although we have conceived naturally, we have very much planned that pregnancy and tried for that pregnancy.
So in the process of doing all of that I think I’ve picked up some really good tips that I wanted to share with you if you are just starting out,if you were just looking to try with your first baby. and I would love to have you. But yes, let’s get into my tips. I should also obviously say, that I’m not a doctor, or a professional or an expert. I am a mom of three who has had to do this three times.
Know your body and your cycle
So the first thing that you need to to do, is also the most important, you need to get to know your body and your cycle. Before we started trying I didn’t even realize that we as women are only really fertile for a few days a month. So you’ll want to pin point when that is. So if you have a very normal cycle of about 28 days, you are normally your most fertile and ovulating on the 14th day in the month. I will try and insert a little chart here that will show that you go from the first day of your period, that is the start of your cycle.
So you’ll have your period and then you will normally be at your most fertile in the middle of your cycle. So there are loads of way that you can track this. You can watch the changes in you body. You can use lots of great apps to record notes, or any changes in your body. But once you start doing this you will notice things. You should start really paying attention to your body,and this is gonna sound really gross and TMI, I’m sure a lot of you will know what I mean when I say if you see egg whites, go, go, go. You can also buy an LH Strips. Which are basically little ovulation tests.
And I actually bought 50 of these on Amazon for about 10 pounds. So I’ll put the link down below. And I did use these. But some months they would actually stress me out more than they would help. So what I found was a good way to do things was in those two middle weeks of my cycle,when I knew I was likely to be fertile,we would just get jiggy every two or three days. And then I knew at some point the egg would hopefully meet the sperm. And that brings me nicely to my next point,which is to have enough sex.
Put a pillow under your bottom
Some people that are trying just aren’t actually doing it enough. But if you do it every two or three days you will hopefully hit that day. But then also my doctor said that some couples have too much sex. So they will try every single day or multiple times a day,and that can lower the quality of the sperm.
Now onto a few tips for right after you have done the deed or even during you can do this one. And that is to put a pillow under your bottom to help to tilt your pelvis. And just help with the gravity of getting things where they need to go.
Also, straight after, you can lay with your legs in the air, or you may have heard of doing bicycle legs right after. I actually did this. I don’t know how much it helped,but we had such a laugh doing this. So, it just like lightened the mood and made it really funny. And also, once you have done it, try and stay laying where you are for about 30 minutes. Sometimes, I would even just fall asleep for the night. Or one other thing that I did which may be really TMI, but I read on a forum that some women have had success with this, so after about four months of trying,I was like, I’m just gonna do it. I bought a soft cup, which is mostly known and used for like menstruation, but it can basically hold everything in.
So after we would do the deed, I would then put a soft cup in,in hopes that it would kind of hold everything in. Oh my gosh, this is so TMI. But I did that and I think it kinda worked. It’s also a sensible idea to watch your weight. You don’t want to be over weight but then you also don’t want to be under weight to conceive. And it’s also not a great idea to do any fad diets or loose a lot of weight, really quickly,before you start trying. Because that can also negatively affect your fertility. But you just wanna be healthy.
Avoid Alkohol Drinks
Maybe just think about not having so many takeaways, having a healthy balanced diet, maybe stopping smoking, because you’re gonna have to anyway when you’re pregnant. And cutting down on alcohol as well. While I was researching for this video I found one study that said, women are twice as likely to fall pregnant within six months if they drink five or less units of alcohol a week. So five units is probably about two and a bit large glasses of wine. So you can have a little bit. But maybe just cut back a bit if you do drink a lot,and that will help you conceive. And the same goes for men.
They need to watch how much they’re drinking, because it can also affect their sperm quality as well. If you are in any way worried about your body before you start trying, you can book a prenatal checkup with your doctor, so that you can talk about how to prepare your body best for pregnancy. You could also have a fertility smoothie as well. I found some amazing recipes on Pinterest. And my favorite one had kale in it, and macro powder as well because that can help to regulate your hormones. I don’t know if it works, like completely, it may be a placebo affect, but it was a really nice way to start the day and it’s really healthy.
So my next tip when you’re trying to conceive is to start taking a good prenatal supplement. You can just get these over the counter. I took the Vitabiotics ones. And I took the his and her ones. So there was a pill that I took everyday as well as an omega three,which is really good for your egg health. And there was also a pill that Mack took,which gave him everything that he needed, zinc etcetera,to help with the quality of everything.
But, you’ll want to take that because you’ll need the folic acid in it. Ideally, you should even take it, like three months before you’re even trying. But just start taking it now. It’s also worth checking out your iron levels as well. Because I was slightly anemic. So I needed to start taking an iron supplement. I took Spatone, but iron is also important for your egg health as well. Another really good tip is to use a conception friendly lubricant. You may not know this, but some lubricants like KY Jelly, can actually slow things down and stop things from swimming as well as they can.
So you’ll want to use one,there’s one that’s called Pre-Seed, which is really good and can actually help mobility. And there’s also one called Conceive Plus. I will leave them both down below. You can get them on Amazon and they just help keep things moving. And my final tip is probably the most important one,and that is to relax as much as you can. Try not to let trying to conceive completely consume your life. And I know it’s very difficult. When I was trying to conceive all I wanted was to get pregnant. And if someone had said to me just relax, I probably would’ve wanted to punch them in the face.
But honestly, it makes a massive difference. So just look at your lifestyle. Look at how stressed you are at work. Look how busy you are. Also, if you have lots of adrenaline,that can actually tell your body that it’s maybe not a good time to conceive. So look at your lifestyle, try and chill as much as you can.
And I have a little story for you. When we were trying for Jackson, nothing happened for about four months and then when it got to December I said to Macklet’s just write December off, because we have so many Christmas nights out. So many Christmas do’s and we’ll be drinking more than normal, so let’s just kinda forget December. Start again in the New Year. And December was when we fell pregnant with Jackson. Because I think I was just so relaxed. We were just normal. We just had fun. There was no pressure of you know, today’s the day.
Those are my tips and I really hope you liked them. And I also wanted to say that you can see a fertility specialist if you are under the age of 35 if you’ve been trying for a whole year and you’re over the age of 35, you can book into see a fertility specialist. After six months of trying. So give yourself all of that time and hopefully you will fall pregnant. I wish you luck. And yeah, I hope it all works out for .
