When to Have a Second Child

When to Have a Second Child

If you want to grow your family, it can be hard to plan exactly when to have a second child. There are pros and cons to both small and large age gaps between siblings. When you’re planning a second pregnancy, you should think about your parenting style and what kind of relationship you want your kids to have. Of course, sometimes life makes its own plans, so know that no matter how much you plan things out, you may not end up with exactly the timing you want.

Under 2 Years

Some parents decide to get pregnant and have a second baby right after the first. The benefits are that their kids grow up at a very similar age and will therefore go through similar phases and interests together. Siblings close in age can grow up to be extremely close. On the flip side, they can also have more intense sibling rivalry. Practically speaking, having a second kid within two years will mean parenting a toddler while pregnant and while you have a new baby, which can be a big challenge.

2-4 Years

Many parenting experts recommend this age gap: parents have a chance to develop a stable (or at least somewhat stable) routine with their first child and even catch up on some sleep before having a new baby. Your first child may even be starting preschool, giving you some one-on-one time with the baby. The downsides are that you have to start the whole bottles and diapers routine from square one, just when you feel like you’ve finished it. A 2-4 age gap is small enough that your two kids will grow up together, although you may have to deal with feelings of jealousy in the older sibling.

5+ Years

Many parents opt for a longer gap between children either because that’s what works best with career and other life plans, or because they want to be able to really focus on each child’s youngest years. A larger gap allows you to maximize individual attention, and your older kids may even be able to help out with the youngest. The downsides are that it may be harder for your kids to bond as you grow up, and you’ll have to bounce back in forth between a baby and older child.

Smoking and Trying to Conceive

Smoking and Trying to Conceive

Most couples know that smoking while pregnant can lead to pregnancy complications, birth defects, and increased risk of miscarriage. For these reasons, most women who smoke plan to quit when they become pregnant. However, smoking while trying to conceive can also have disastrous effects on both male and female fertility and increase a couple’s time to conception.

Smoking and female fertility

A group of studies has found that female smokers are 60% more likely than nonsmokers to be infertile. They are also 42% more likely to have conception take more than a year. This is because smoking accelerates ovarian death, which means depleting your supply of eggs and leaving your existing eggs more fragile. Female smokers generally go through menopause 1-4 years earlier than nonsmokers for this reason.

Smoking and male fertility

Smoking also affects sperm at the most basic level: sperm’s DNA. Chemicals from smoking circulate through your body and can bind with the sperm’s DNA, decreasing sperm motility. Smoking has also been linked to lower sperm counts and erectile dysfunction. All of these make fertilization and conception more difficult.

Quitting and its benefits for fertility

The good news is that quitting can help your chances of conceiving quite quickly. Your natural fertility is likely to improve within two months of quitting, and the negative effects may be reversed within a year. For women, quitting smoking before conceiving also ensures a healthier pregnancy. It’s important to note that second-hand smoke has similar negative effects on fertility. So if both members of a couple smoke, it’s important for both of them to quit. And if you live in a household with other smokers, you may want to consider moving or make arrangements to minimize exposure to second-hand smoke.

Can Drinking Milk Help me Get Pregnant?

Can Drinking Milk Help me Get Pregnant?

10 years ago, nutritionists probably would have told you to drink only skim milk and low-fat dairy products. Today, the tables have turned, and nutritionists have realized the value of natural healthy fats, like the ones in milk. These benefits extend to women trying to get pregnant: consuming a moderate amount of whole milk and other dairy products can lower your risk of infertility.

Whole milk and ovulatory infertility

Studies since 2007 have shown that full fat dairy products are linked to a lower chance of ovulatory infertility. Including healthy fats in your diet is also a natural way to regulate your appetite and stay healthy. Therefore, eating full fat dairy products such as milk, yogurt, and cheese is part of a good long-term plan for conceiving and it can increase your chances of getting pregnant.

The risks of non-fat milk

Low-fat milk, on the other hand, can actually be bad for your fertility. In order to remove the fat from skim milk, dairy producers also remove estrogen and progesterone, leaving a higher proportion of androgens and male hormones. It means that,hormonal imbalances can be caused by regularly eating and drinking non-fat dairy products. Instead, look for whole milk products, and choose organic products when possible. Some women who are trying to get pregnant choose raw milk in order to consume all of the good and natural nutrients.

How much dairy should you eat?

When you’re trying to get pregnant, 1-2 servings of full-fat dairy every day is a good guideline. So enjoy some cheddar cheese, your favorite Greek yogurt, or a full fat milk and banana smoothie. Just keep in mind that you should still eat sugary foods, such as ice cream, in moderation.

Calcium is key in the process for conception

Calcium is helping to have a healthy reproductive system and a healthy baby. From helping the swim of spermatozoids to triggering growth in embryos, calcium is very important to help to create an alkaline environment in the reproductive tract and help you to get pregnant. A quart of raw milk has 900mg of food based calcium in it, which is most of what you need when trying to conceive. Conceive Plus also can help you because it is the only fertility lubricant in the world that contains ions of Calcium in order to support your path to pregnancy.

How Heat May Affect Male Infertility

How Heat May Affect Male Infertility

You’ve probably heard that wearing tight underwear can be bad for your fertility. The fact is that heat has a negative impact on male fertility, so the advice to avoid tighty whities is essentially right. High temperatures have an effect on sperm health, specifically sperm motility (movement), which makes it harder for sperm to fertilize an egg. This is why the testicles are located away from the body; sperm should be about 4 degrees cooler than the average body temperature.

Avoid common sources of heat

If you are trying to conceive, it’s a good idea to avoid the most common sources of undue heat. First of all, make sure that your underwear and pants are not tight fitting. Looser clothing provides your testicles space to self-regulate their temperature. It’s also a good idea to limit time in hot tubs, saunas, or baths. If you are outdoors in the hot weather, do your best to take frequent breaks to cool down. The same applies to sitting. Make sure to get up, stretch, and move around often. If you are overweight, excess fat in the scrotum area may also negatively impact your fertility. Losing weight can help you to keep your body temperature at a healthy level.

Plan ahead

Sperm take about 70 days, or more than 3 months, to mature. This means that if you are often exposed to sources of heat, or if you have recently been sick with a high fever, it will take a while for your sperm to recover to full motility. If you are trying to conceive, try to plan ahead and start avoiding sources of heat early. This will help you and your partner in your efforts to conceive. If you have been having trouble getting pregnant and are speaking to a doctor about fertility, make sure that you mention any possible issues related to heat.

CONCEIVE PLUS® TESTIMONIAL – We used Conceive Plus twice in one ovulation and I became pregnant.

Thank you Hannah for sharing your Conceive Plus testimonial !

“I’d like to share my story with you all. I am a little over 200 lbs and I didn’t lose any weight before conceiving. My Obgyn also told me I needed to lose weight. But I’m 31 years old and my husband is 47 years old. We tried to conceive for 12 years with no luck. As you know with pcos your menstrual cycle can be very irregular. So my obgyn put me on metformin to regulate. Then on clonidine to conceive.

After the first round I did conceive. But I miscarried at 7 weeks. So we waited a while and tried again but this time we went through 3 rounds of Clonidine. I got pregnant and miscarried at 12 weeks. So we took a little break from the medications but still didn’t use protection. We went on for a couple of years with not conceiving. Then we started the testing… they blew air through my tubes to see if there was anything blocking them. We did genetic testing. We did artificial insemination. IVF. I also tried hormone shots that I did in my belly everyday. We stopped all the testing because everything was coming back normal. A few years later I became pregnant on my own. We found out it was a set of twins and miscarried at 9 weeks. So we decided we would take a break from trying because it was to heartbreaking.We became foster parents and adopted four children. We decided a few years after adopting the children that we wanted to try for one more.

I seen this stuff online (Conceive Plus). I ordered it from Amazon for $20. I put a ovulation calculator on my phone and tracked my ovulation days. We used conceive plus twice in one ovulation. And became pregnant. I was scared to death of miscarrying again. I informed my OBGYN of all the miscarriages and she put me on progesterone cream. I was able to carry my baby but then I got severe preeclampsia. My Obgyn did not catch the preeclampsia. So at 29 weeks I was in the emergency room in excruciating pain. I had my baby boy that night. He had to be in the NICU for 2 months because he was so small. He was only 2 pounds 11 ounces. But now he’s home and doing great he turned 6 months on Christmas Day. I know that my husband and I couldn’t wait to start a family. And I’m not saying that Conceive Plus works for everyone. But it’s definitely worth a try and on the cheaper side. I told my cousin about Conceive Plus also. She had been trying for 2 years to conceive. She used conceive plus 3 times in one ovulation. And she is now 10 weeks pregnant. I just wanted to tell you about this because 12 years of trying to have children was a hard thing to go through. And if I can help anyone else with just telling them about this then I’d like to do so. Good luck, baby dust and God bless!”, Hannah Y., Facebook, 21 January 2017

Getting Enough Sleep When You’re Trying to Conceive

Getting Enough Sleep When You’re Trying to Conceive

Who doesn’t love a good nap? The good news is, if you’re trying to conceive, you now have a good excuse to take a few naps, and, more generally, get plenty of sleep. Your body needs lots of rest to be at its healthy best and to keep hormone levels balanced. If you’re trying to get pregnant, getting enough sleep becomes particularly important.

Sleep is linked to your hormones and ovulation cycle

Sleep doesn’t just make you feel rested; it’s connected to many parts of your body, including your hormones. One particularly important hormone linked to sleep is leptin, a hormone that helps to regulate ovulation. Women who don’t get enough sleep have lower leptin levels, which can lead to an irregular menstrual cycle.

Sleep helps to reduce stress

You probably already know that stress can affect your fertility. More specifically, stress leads to higher levels of the hormones cortisol and adrenocortocotropic, which interfere with a normal fertility cycle. When you’re trying to conceive, it’s important that you take steps to reduce anxiety and stress. Getting enough sleep is paramount to keeping stress levels down. And if you’re having a stressful day, you can use an afternoon nap to help you relax!

Napping in moderation

Napping can be a great way to give your body some extra rest and relax, but the most important thing your body needs to be rested is a regular sleep schedule. To accomplish this, you should aim to sleep for between 7 and 9 hours every night, and try to go to bed and wake up at about the same time every day. This puts your body in synch with its circadian rhythm, a natural response your body has to the patterns of day and night. If you take long naps and then don’t feel sleepy at night, you may be throwing off your circadian rhythm. To avoid this, keep your naps under 45 minutes as a general rule.

Getting Pregnant When Taking Clomid

Are You Trying to Get Pregnant on Clomid?

Clomid is one of the most popular infertility treatments available. It works by inducing ovulation, which can be a major help in trying to conceive for women who have irregular menstruation. If you’re taking Clomid the following tips can help make the most of the increased chances of get pregnant quickly.

Use Ovulation Tests

Clomid makes your ovulation cycle more regular, but we advise not depending on it entirely. Using an ovulation predictor to determine exactly when you’re ovulating is a great idea. Start using the predictor on day 10 of your cycle (7 days after taking Clomid). You can also use temperature checking or another method that works for you. The goal is to narrow down when you’re ovulating as accurately as possible to find your most fertile days to focus your conception efforts.

Have sex frequently, but not too frequently

When you’re taking Clomid starting on day 3 of your cycle, your fertility window is typically between days 7 through 16 of your cycle. You want to be having sex regularly throughout those days, but that doesn’t necessarily mean having sex every day. A high sperm count is just as important as ovulation when trying to conceive. Having sex too often can deplete a man’s supply. As a general rule, aim to have sex every other day. The exception is when you’re ovulating. Use your ovulation predictor, and when it says you’re ovulating, have sex two days in a row. That way, you can maximize your window.

Consider other options

Remember that Clomid is only meant for women who have irregular or failed ovulation. If you and your partner have other fertility problems, Clomid may not be able to fix them. Most people who get pregnant using Clomid conceive within their first three or four cycles. If Clomid isn’t working for you, talk to your doctor about other potential infertility treatments.

Use a Sperm Friendly Lubricant

Clomid is a known cause of vaginal dryness, and when trying to get pregnant that can cause discomfort and actually reduces your chances. Conceive Plus fertility friendly lubricant is formulated with Calcium and Magnesium ions to support sperm viability and help increase the chances of getting pregnant, naturally!
