The truth is that once we women decide to start trying to conceive; we unconsciously want, hope, wish, and except for our bodies to immediately get pregnant. At least most of us. Right? In a way, that is a little bit selfish, don’t you think? Because you feel ready, it doesn’t necessarily mean that your body is prepared to make, carry, and nourish a baby. Not even professional can guarantee anything. Our bodies are wise machine, and although you may think you might be ready, your body can perceive otherwise. Simply take care of your body; release yourself from that negative, worrying and stressful situations and start believing in the power of your body.
Remember that your body is a WISE MACHINE, and it is very capable of perceiving when it's in danger, or not. Our bodies are very vulnerable to negative and stressful situations, and if you turn your trying to conceive journey into a stressful situation, your body will not be able to differentiate one thing from another; and will avoid reproduction, despite you wanting it so bad.
Trying to conceive tips:
- Strive for a healthy lifestyle (drink water, eat healthy foods, do gentle workouts, do things mindfully).
- Develop a positive mindset (try seeing yourself as a third person, and give yourself advice on how to improve. No one knows you better that yourself!)
- Take your prenatal vitamins (getting a head star on folic acid is always a good idea because the neural tube develops into the brain and spine around 3-4 weeks after conception.)
- Record your menstrual cycle pattern (knowing the length of your menstrual cycle and period is pivotal. By tracking this information, a woman can better predict when she might be ovulating.)
- Monitor ovulation (once you’ve learnt the length of your menstrual cycle, this part should become easier to come around. Now, you’re trying to detect when your ovary is going to release that golden egg. This can be done by charting your ‘Basal Body Temperature’, LH/ovulation-prediction kits, & documenting your ‘Cervical Mucus’.) However, note that although in average ovulation occurs around day 12 to 16 from your menstrual cycle, this can vary from women to women.
Few more things that can make a huge difference:
- Your thoughts have a deep effect on your mind and body works. Think positively!
- Try dedicating some time to explore your creativity which will help you lower your anxiety and stress levels.
- Go for a swim, take a walk. Do something you enjoy and stay active.
- Avoid plastic kitchenware for food/beverage storage, household chemical, and conventional beauty products.
