So you’re wondering about how to get pregnant tips. This is Mavis Schorn, nurse/midwife and a professor at the Vanderbilt University School of Nursing. And I’m going to try to help you with a few tips about that.

If you’re ready to get pregnant, first of all, I really would recommend that you go see a health provider before you’re pregnant. It is an opportunity to really discuss a lot of different things; any medical issues that you have going to pregnancy, any guidance that your provider can give you before then, it can be very helpful.

But you’re ready to get the show on the road so I can tell you this, a couple of things; one is you want to eat healthy. The healthy your body is, the more likely that your body is going to conceive and that your pregnancy is going to go well. So eat healthy, get into a normal exercise routine, you want to begin taking folic acid which is an important nutrient that you need to have to grow a healthy baby; because you don’t know you’re pregnant till you’ve actually been pregnant for a couple of weeks. It’s better to start that before you get pregnant. Easy way to get that is start taking a pre-natal vitamin. There are prenatal vitamins that are over the counter, you don’t need a prescription for them. So go ahead and get started on that.

If you smoke, stop smoking if you can. If you can work on smoking cessation before pregnancy, that will help your pregnancy. But it also helps with conception. Smoking thickens the cervical mucus, making a little bit harder to get pregnant.  It also increases your risk of miscarriage. So if you can do to reduce the amount of smoking that you’re doing or stopping altogether is helpful for your pregnancy. And then alcohol. Alcohol; there’s really no safe amount of alcohol for pregnancy. So it’s a good habit to get into before you ever get pregnant.

Sperm and Egg

Although last thing, it is probably the thing you really wondering about and why you clicked on this particular topic and that is so how do I actually get pregnant? Now, remember that time between your two periods we’re ovulating; we are actually producing an egg is when your time is you’re most fertile. So you need to be producing an egg, number one.

Number two, you have to have the semen or sperm to participate; so you need to have, and I’ll be really specific here, that you need to have, to be the most likely be successful, penis and vagina, sexual intercourse with ejaculation; and you don’t need to do it several times a day. The reality is about every other day is plenty. And if you normally, with your partner have sex every two or three times a week, and you’re a normal and healthy person, regular menstrual cycles, you’re going to probably conceive on your own just doing that. If you want to maximize your chance do it at the time of ovulation and every other day.
