The idea of having a little bundle of joy in your life is exhilarating, and it’s easy to get impatient.

Try the Pregnancy Miracle Method

This book is excellent and a MUST-READ for anyone trying to get pregnant naturally, and it will dramatically improve their health and well-being.

Improve Your Health
This is one of those long-term ways to improve your chances of getting pregnant. To make yourself more fertile, give yourself a total health makeover. This should apply to every part of your life.
First, Change Your Diet. Cut out saturated fats, eat more colorful greens, get more iron and take folic acid supplements. Basically, eat what you know you should be eating and avoid what you know you should be avoiding.
Next, Get More Exercise. Take advantage of that gym membership you’ve been fruitlessly paying for, or leave your car at home and bike to work if you can. Moving your body will increase your overall health, which will increase your fertility.
When you combine diet and exercise, you’re bound to lose weight, and that’s another excellent way to boost your fertility. Achieving a healthy BMI will allow your reproductive system to work to its full potential.
Then, there are the things you should cut out for good health. Drink less caffeine and alcohol, and don’t smoke cigarettes (or anything else, for that matter). Avoiding drugs, stimulants and alcohol will improve your health.
Improving your health for fertility is really about doing what you know you should, so no more cheating!
Stick to Your Ovulation Calendar
Many women experience pregnancy success as soon as they start paying attention to their body’s internal calendar.
Your ovulation calendar depends on the length of your cycles and the date of your last period. You can work with your OBGYN to develop an accurate ovulation calendar down to the hour.
You should also pay attention to your basal temperature, which will raise the moment you are primed for conception.
Although bringing science and schedules into the bedroom can ruin some of the romance, it will also bring you one step closer to bringing home baby.
Herbs are not technically approved by the FDA to improve your chances of getting pregnant, but they have been used for centuries and are trusted around the world.
Don’t assume all herbs are safe just because they’re natural. Always check with your physician before taking any herbal supplements.
Ditch the Lube
Any lubricant, even the kind that isn’t spermicidal, is toxic to sperm. It inhibits your body’s natural ability to lift sperm into the vagina for fertilization.
Although you might want lube to make the conception process more enjoyable, skip it.
There is some sperm-friendly lube on the market, but experts agree there is no better lubricant for fertility than a woman’s own vaginal mucus, which brings me to my final fertility tip.
That’s right. One way to improve your chances of getting pregnant is to actually enjoy the sex you are having.
There is controversy surrounding the theory that a woman’s orgasm actually “sucks up” the semen farther into the bottom to promote fertilization. Although it makes sense with the way the body moves during orgasm, there are many studies that disprove it.
With or without the “up-suck” theory, foreplay and arousal do promote lubrication, and that natural moisture can help sperm make their way up into the vagina.
So, if you and your partner have been having that scientific sort of sex that tends to start happening when conception is on the line, go back to basics.
Take your time to get aroused, and make sure you are both having orgasms at the same time. Not only will this increase your chances, but it will also make things much more enjoyable.
Of course, if your infertility is caused by a medical condition, you should talk to your doctor about treatment.
See a fertility expert to find out what the source of your problems might be.
For example, if you have a thyroid problem, there is no way you can conceive easily until your doctor treats that problem separately.
However, temporary infertility is often a result of lifestyle and habit, so try these tricks first. They are easy, and they will probably improve your life even if they don’t promote pregnancy. So why not give them a try?
Getting pregnant isn’t always easy, but that’s not to say it’s out of your control.
