How to Have a Baby


Many believe that children are the joy of life. They make you feel more alive, like you are never going to die as the part of you is always going to be in them. Some women are eager to have a baby, they are trying to have it for years, but nothing is happening. It is a tragedy for a family where both: man and a woman are willing to have a child of their own. But if it is not happening, it is not the end of the world, as maybe they are just doing it wrong. Check with the following list to make sure you are doing all the right things.


Conceive a baby at the right time of the month

When trying to have a baby, it is important to understand, that there is only one or two days when a woman can get pregnant: ovulation. When the egg enters the fallopian tube man and a woman have only a day or two to consume a child as otherwise the egg will disappear. Giving that sperm can live up to 5 days (or at least 2 - 3) conceiving a baby can be possible for 1 - 7 days a month. If you are planning on conceiving a boy, you need to try on the day of ovulation: male sperm are faster. If you try to conceive a couple of days before ovulation, then female sperm is more likely to win, as female sperm live longer and can "wait" for the egg to come out. So if you want to conceive a girl, you need to try to do it a couple of days before ovulation.

Signs of ovulation

How do you know if you are ovulating? First of all, you need to remember that ovulation doesn't always happen every month: it is normal if 1 or 2 times a year you have a menstrual cycle without ovulation. There are some signs of ovulation that may help you define it: mucoid discharge, light pain in the stomach.If your menstrual cycle is stable and is about 24 - 32 days than to learn when your ovulation is, you are going to need to subtract 14 from the number of the days of your subtract menstrual cycle, and the number you get is the day of the cycle your ovulation is supposed to happen. To be sure, you need to get ovulation sticks and use them every day beginning on the day of the would-be ovulation, to see when exactly your ovulation takes place.


Stop all the bad habits

3 months before you start trying your husband should quit smoking and drinking, as sperm takes about 3 months to "recover". To increase speed of sperm cells he is better stop eating junk food and start eating healthy: more fruit and vegetables. But don't forget red meat. Of course, a woman should get rid of bad habits too, the sooner the better.

Vitamins and eating healthy

Don't forget about vitamins. But don't take too much vitamins A, D and E, as it can be really bad for the baby. If you are taking vitamin A as a cure for something, you need to stop taking it at least half a year before you start trying to have a baby. If you eat healthy, it will not only help you conceive, but it will also provide a baby with nutrient elements it needs for the healthy development.



Having a baby may be hard for some people, as all people are different and their bodies are different. Specialists recommend to see a doctor if you are trying to get pregnant for a year and there is no result. For most people who have trouble getting pregnant it still happens eventually, so there is no need to worry. Follow the advice, eat healthy, quit bad habits and use ovulation sticks, and you are going to be just fine. Good luck!
