It's not just vampires that are interested in your blood type. Your ovaries are, too! Certain blood types might affect a woman's fertility.
Keeping your dental health in check can help you get pregnant faster and keep that baby cooking longer.
So my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for 8 very long (to me) months now. I was on birth control pills for 6 years prior to stopping and then we waited 5 months afterward before we actually started trying. I have fairly regular periods although they are between 33-35 days rather than the "normal" 28 days.
This question might be interesting for vegans consuming soy products, and generally people who eat soy and are trying to conceive a baby.
Connection between soy and infertility or decreased fertility is somehow cemented in my mind, I am not sure why, but there must be a reason, right?
So, I decided to make a little “research”, and in this article I have listed the main premises I have learned. I hope you will enjoy reading it, and perhaps learn something new.
It's amazing that I have spent most of my life trying NOT to get pregnant. I thought since my mom was one of thirteen kids and I'm one of five that my genetic chances of conceiving were pretty good. Last year I decided to go off of birth control and my period stopped coming as well. I am in the military and I deployed to Iraq in September of last year. Before the deployment I took birth control again because I was getting anthrax shots and was scared of getting pregnant and injuring my unborn child. I got my period just like any regular girl would.
So I've been reading on a few websites on and off today at work. Mostly about fertility and getting pregnant after you go off the pill. I put 9 books on hold at the library! One for my hubby and one that I'm expecially excited for, "What to Expect Before You're Expecting". I've also been reading all about pregnancy! The blogs, FAQ's, and websites are full of all kinds of information. Some of it breaks my heart to read about these wonderful women who want nothing more than to have a family. It makes me thing of how my mom must have felt. She and my father tried for 10 years to have children.
My husband and I have been married for almost a year and a half. We've decided that it's time to bring a baby into our family! We have a wonderful 4 1/2 year old yellow lab, but we've been feeling like something's missing. (How cliche does that sound?) I went to the OB for my yearly check-up a few weeks ago and got the 'ok' to go off the pill. I have two weeks left of my pack and I'm starting to get NERVOUS! A zillion thoughts have been running through my head, "Are we too young? Are we being stupid? What if something goes wrong? What if we can't get pregnant? Is our apartment too small?
