Some things are obvious, but sometimes just the smallest thing can make a difference. Your body tries to tell you that you are ovulating – but you just don’t notice it.
Your body often releases a sticky stretchy type substance that can only be described as “Egg Whites”. This substance helps the sperm to swim up into the womb. It normally appears just before/during ovulation and is a sure sign that ovulation is imminent.
Just before Ovulation your body temperature will rise slightly. This can be charted using our BBT Digital Thermometers, which are a great way to chart your cycles each month. You will also receive a free digital chart which you can print off as many times as you wish. Click here to buy our BBT Digital Thermometer with FREE Chart !!
You should also keep a record of each monthly cycle, so you know roughly when you are about to ovulate. Did you know that a woman ovulates 14 Days BEFORE her period is due ? You may experience slight cramps when you are ovulating, so look out for this too.
Our ovulation test strips are perfect for keeping an eye on when you are ovulating and really do not cost much at all – probably less that the sanitary protection you would need to buy for your period. Now there’s a thought……..
Finally for our top tip for ttc. Give nature a hand when you are trying for a baby. Make sure that you are lying on your back, with your legs raised if at all possible. After intercourse keep both legs raised high (against the wall maybe). All terribly unlady like, but seems to help no end. It is logical really that the sperm is desperately trying to reach your womb, so do not let everything go in the wrong direction.

Or maybe none of these apply and you just a have that growing urge for a baby and for the pitter patter of tiny feet. The sound eludes you, and the empty feeling inside you that eats away at you grows by the day. You’re fed up with well meaning friends and relatives asking you when you might have a baby, and frankly it’s killing you. Why aren’t “We” or “You” for that matter falling pregnant ?
Here are a few facts that may put your mind at rest. If you were on the contraceptive pill, and stopped taking them to try for a baby, it’s going to take a few months to come out of your system. Hormones take a while to settle back down, and your cycles may be slightly irregular.
Relax and try not to put yourself or your partner under pressure to perform. It can make the whole situation very stressful. Having said that if you can manage to try every day it certainly does help things along. I was advised that every other day was better, but when I didn’t fall pregnant I dismissed this method and doubled up our efforts – it worked.
If you have been trying unsuccessfully for two years you can see your doctor and ask to be referred to the hospital for fertility checks. It may be less or more time, as my husband and I were referred in 2003, and things may have changed since then.
My main advice is to never give up your dream. Keep trying as many things as you can, so that you can hold your much wanted baby in your arms.
