Top Tips To Increase Your Chances When Trying For A Baby

10:28 AM

You’ve been waiting until the time is right, and now everything is ready. You’re financially stable, you’ve discussed it with your partner, and you’ve even gone a little overboard and started researching good schools in your local area (just in case you need to get on the waiting list now). It’s all well and good planning out how you’re going to get back into shape after your pregnancy, but you need to have your pregnancy first. Below are some things to consider that will increase your chances, whilst making the whole process less stressful.

Get A Fertility Test
The first thing on your list should be getting a clean bill of health. You need to know that both you and your partner are happy and healthy before you start trying for a baby. Going to a fertility clinic can help to address any possible concerns you might have about your ability to conceive. Should this check-up show that your results aren’t quite optimal for any reason, don’t worry. There are plenty of options to increase your chances, including visiting companies like However, nine times out of ten, a fertility test will simply let you know that everything is in working order, and you’re perfectly fine to start trying.

Let Technology Optimize Your Efforts
There are plenty of gadgets and products out there to help you make the most of your time trying to conceive. Ovulation tests are a simple way to make sure that your timing is spot on, but there are also apps to help you monitor your cycle. A monitoring system like Natural Cycles uses your temperature, sleep patterns, and monthly cycle to track when you are at your most fertile. These options allow you to spend less time worrying about when you should be trying and when you should be resting, and spending more time enjoying life and planning for your pregnancy. You may even find taking a little of the pressure off yourself, and reducing your stress levels helps to up your libido.

Diet, Sleep, and Exercise
Keeping your overall health in good condition is the best way to boost your chances. It can be a little overwhelming knowing what you should and shouldn’t be eating, but sticking to a basic and well-balanced diet can never go amiss. Make sure all the food groups are represented in every meal and avoid completely eliminating specific foods from your diet. The exception to this rule is, of course, any foods that could have a negative impact on your ability to conceive such a seafood, caffeine and alcohol.  Balance is key with most foods in your diet, and having too little can be just as detrimental as having too much. You could also look into pregnancy specific supplements. There are some great products out there that can help to make sure that your body has all the essential nutrients and vitamins it needs to conceive. Getting a good night’s sleep is also essential to let your body repair itself. Aim to get around eight hours a night, and to fall asleep as much before midnight as possible. Try turning off the technology an hour or two before bed, as the light from the screens can disrupt your body’s melatonin production. Don’t forget to exercise either. You don’t have to be training for a marathon, but doing even half an hour of light activity per day to increase your heart rate and get you sweating, can make a huge difference to your overall health and fitness. Nothing too strenuous, unless your body is fully used to it, as this could cause problems if you do happen to conceive.

Keep The Romance
With all the science and scheduling that surround trying to have a baby, it can be easy to become a little too clinical. Remember that this is a joint venture with your partner and should feel as such. Bringing another life into the world is a huge step, and it should be something that brings you closer together. Make time to set the mood and even (non-alcoholic) wine and dine each other. It’s important not to let yourselves get disheartened by a negative test; it will happen and the right time for you and your partner.

The list of ways to boost your chances to conceive is almost endless, but the examples above are a few basic ones to get you started and alleviate some of that anxiousness you may be feeling. Stay happy and stress-free, and relax by doing more research on how best to prepare for when you’re little one does come along.
