How to get Pregnant

To give a birth to a baby is a wonderful feeling. It’s like touching the heaven. A woman is completed when he gave a birth to a baby. Some time it is difficult to conceive due to many reasons. If this whole process goes naturally without any problem it’s a good achievement in itself. Most of the women’s don’t know about " How to get pregnantHow to get pregnant". There are ways to help the process along, though.

Getting started

I am 35 years old my husband and I are starting to plan the expansion of our family.
We have been eating health; fresh fruits & vegies, lots of protein, and fiber. I have been reducing my coffee in take, and stopped having a glass of wine each night. I have been on prenatal vitamins for about a month now- I guess it's now time to wait and see

Trying pregnancy again...

My husband and I miscarried last month. We only new we were pregnant for about a day then the bleeding started. It was very disappointing, but you know I felt better knowing that I COULD get pregnant. Which is a great comfort... We will start trying again to get pregnant after the first of the year... I hope all goes well! Only 15 pounds away from my weight loss goal!! I lost 9 pounds already and feeling sooo confident!! I have to do it for future baby!

Excited about getting pregnant but also SCARED OUT OF MY MIND!!!

I'm 29yrs old, and as you can see by the subject line, I'm both excited and scared out of my mind about pregnancy. My boyfriend and I have been together for 7.5 years, and have recently made the decision that it's time for children to make an appearance in our lives. Since coming to this mutual agreement, I haven't been able to think about anything else. The day we discussed starting a family involved coming up with names...and how we're going to rearrange our apartment. I've been so excited about it, that I've told all of my family that we're going to be trying in the near future.

Getting started

After a year and a half of trying to start my family and losing four children before they were with me even a month I had almost given up hope. I knew that it wouldn't be impossible for my husband and I to have a family, but I was scared of having to go through all the fertility testing and procedures. I have PCOS and was always told that it was the getting pregnant part that was the issue, not staying that way. I've cried more in this year and a half past than any other time in my life. I have felt hopeless, and guilty as if each miscarriage was my fault.

First Attempt

Bought prenatal vitamins today. I already take fish oil supplement once a day, which I love. Talked to my mom about trying to make it happen. Haven't totally explained to my dad the situation, but I think he gets that living with my husband might lead to a baby. Def didn't tell brother anything. I don't want to hear it from him, whatever he has to say about it.

Sad that I can't be planning this at home, but maybe the next one? Wink

Calling doctor in the morning to get a pre-conception visit in.

Dear Midwife,
I know that this is a little bit off topic but I am in great need of advice.

I have been married for 6 1/2 months. I love my husband very much and I do find him quite attractive. But over these months I have found that my desire for intercourse has dropped off the face of the earth. At first it hurt but I thought that it was just because I was new at it. Yet things did not get better. I can not seem to get turned on for more than five minutes max. I have never had an orgasm.
