Help Me Get Pregnant!

From the moment you wake up to the moment you put your head to the pillow, do thoughts of booties, bottles and bibs occupy your mind? If they do, you’re not alone. Millions of women want to get pregnant. Some are able to do so more easily than others. For those who have trouble trying to conceive, “Help me get pregnant” has become somewhat of a mantra.

Are you one of the women who have been declaring, “Help me get pregnant!”? Is the one thing you want most in the world a beautiful baby to call your own? If you’ve been trying to get pregnant month after month, only to be crushed time and time again by negative pregnancy tests, there is some good news you’ll be happy to hear. A baby girl or boy may very well be in your future. You just need to understand what your body needs in order to conceive.

Put On Your Sherlock Cap

First and foremost, if you’ve been trying to get pregnant and have been unsuccessful up to this point, you need to figure out what is going on. At this point many men and women turn to a doctor to find out how to get pregnant. Let me tell you this… When you go to a doctor and say, “Help me get pregnant,” that doctor is usually going to approach it from a medical-only standpoint. This means tests (which are not bad in and of themselves). But what happens if the tests are inconclusive? And what if you don’t really need the fertility treatments the doctor advises? Isn’t it best to become pregnant naturally, the way your body was intended to?

The first thing I advise to women who are saying, “Help me get pregnant” is that they take a step back and take a look at the big picture. Look at everything and anything that may be getting in your way. The first step towards eliminating an obstacle is to discover it. How are your periods? Are they regular? If not, a hormone imbalance may be the culprit. How is your diet? Are you eating the right foods? If you want to become pregnant you need to make sure that your body is getting the nutrition it needs. After all, it takes a lot of work to create a baby. Your body might not cooperate with your desires until it feels that you are ready for it.

From the Inside Out

And that brings us to the body-mind connection. Your state of mind can actually impact your ability to conceive. If you’re running around the world at Mach 5 speeds, stressed beyond belief and not taking time for yourself, it’s time to take a step back and concentrate on you. You may not be able to put on the brakes completely, but ease off the accelerator a bit if you can. By combining physical health with emotional well being, you can increase your chances of conceiving the baby that you have been thinking of every day and night.
