  1. Let's get started ....

1. Pay a visit to your doctor

  1. It is important to lay the foundation for a healthy pregnancy before you even get pregnant. You are more likely to have a successful pregnancy when your body is prepared. Make an appointment with your doctor or midwife to find out if your body is in the right condition to conceive or if you may need to make some lifestyle adjustments before attempting to have a baby.

  1. If there are certain health problems, it may not be possible to solve them immediately, but taking measures as soon as possible may make it easier to conceive over time. turn into.

  1. And even though you think you are optimally healthy, sometimes it may be that there are underlying problems that you have not yet noticed. So make that appointment!

2. Plan a Healthy Pregnancy

  1. If you are trying to conceive, eat healthy meals, maintain a healthy weight, get regular exercise, and try to break all bad habits (like drinking, smoking, or even the use of drugs). Limit your caffeine intake to less than 200 milligrams per day (about 1 large cup of coffee). Too much coffee can contribute to fertility problems.

  1. During the check-up appointment I discussed in the previous tips, also discuss any medications you are taking to find out if they are safe to use during pregnancy.

  1. You can drastically reduce the risk of certain birth defects by consuming a healthy portion of folate. Earlier I talked about the dangers of folic acid supplements and the benefits of folic acid from food.

  1. In any case, find out what you can do to give your baby a healthy start.

3. Find out when you ovulate

  1. The fastest way to get pregnant is to watch your ovulation, so when ovulation occurs. You ovulate only once per menstrual cycle, and you only have a few days during that time when it is possible to conceive. Knowing when you ovulate means that you and your partner can “plan” to have sex to have the best chance of getting pregnant.

  1. You can use a few different methods to find out when you are ovulating. There are several calculators online that can help you figure out the exact date. Normally, an entire cycle takes 28 days. Your ovulation normally occurs on the two days in the middle of two periods, ie in the middle of your cycle.

  1. If you have irregular periods it can sometimes be difficult to find out exactly when you ovulate, in which case it is better to discuss it with your doctor. In addition, there are also tests available at the drugstore that tell you exactly if you are ovulating at a particular time, which are very useful to know for sure.

  1. It may not sound very romantic to plan a lovemaking party, but if you would like to have a baby this will give you the best chance.

4. Making love at the right time

  1. As soon as you know when ovulation will take place, you can also plan exactly when you should have sex in order to have a greater chance of becoming pregnant: this is usually about three days before ovulation until and with the day of your ovulation.

  1. You have a few days to have sex before pregnancy, because sperm can survive in your body for about three to six days. (Your egg will only survive one day, though.) That means if you have sex on Monday, sperm can survive in your fallopian tubes through Thursday - or even Sunday at the latest.

  1. If you don't know exactly when your fertile period is, you can also choose to have sex the other day. This means you will almost always have healthy sperm in your fallopian tubes when your egg is released. Of course you can make love more often if you like, but it won't increase your chances so much, so don't feel forced to put extra pressure on your relationship by having to make love every day.

  1. Another tip: If you and your partner wait to have sex until your most fertile time, make sure the dry spell before it is not too long. Your partner should ejaculate at least once a day right before your most fertile period. Otherwise, there could be a build-up of dead sperm cells in his semen. Also try to avoid extra 'aids' such as olive oil, saliva or lubricant as this can slow down the sperm. If you do need something like that, ask your doctor for a good alternative.

5. Give semen a boost

  1. Sperm cells have the best chance of fertilizing an egg when they are healthy, strong and abundant. Your partner can do several things to encourage this:

  1. The sooner your partner adjusts their lifestyle, the better: Sperm needs time to “mature” properly so any improvements will now yield better sperm in about three months.

6. Pay attention to your diet

  1. For both men and women, nutrition and fertility are linked to each other. A healthy diet will greatly increase your chances of having a healthy baby and healthy pregnancy.

  1. Eat multiple servings of fruits, vegetables, (gluten-free) whole grains, and calcium-rich foods such as yogurt and low-fat cheese. Not enough nutrients in your diet can also affect your period, making it difficult to predict when you will ovulate. In addition, you may not ovulate at all if you are severely underweight or overweight.

  1. Your partner should also pay attention to their diet, because certain vitamins and nutrients - such as zinc and vitamins C and E and folic acid - are important for making healthy sperm.

  1. Fish provides great nutritional benefits for a growing baby, and is a good source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids. However, you should make sure that you choose the types of fish that do not contain too much mercury, as this can again be dangerous for your unborn baby. A healthy portion of fish twice a week is ideal.

  1. Mercury can accumulate in your body and can be there for up to a year in your cells, so fish such as mackerel and tuna should not be chosen. Then it is better to choose salmon twice a week, for example. Plus, salmon is full of omega-3 fatty acids that promote healthy growth for your baby.

  1. Cold cuts should be consumed in small quantities, and smoked or raw meat should be avoided entirely during pregnancy. Heat the meat so that it is well done. When you are pregnant, certain bacteria and parasites in the meat can be very dangerous for your unborn baby.

7. Learn the right habits

  1. For many mothers-to-be, pregnancy requires an abrupt change in eating and drinking habits - but some habits are difficult to break. Make it easier on yourself by unlearning these habits now and get your child off to a good start from the beginning.

  1. An occasional bottle of beer or a glass of wine probably won't affect your chances of getting pregnant, but alcohol can harm the baby's development. And since you don't know exactly when you're ovulating or getting pregnant, it's better to avoid alcohol completely. Instead, enjoy a vegetable juice that will provide your body with all the nutrients it needs.

  1. The same goes of course for smoking. If you smoke cigarettes or even use drugs it is really necessary to stop now. All these substances and habits can harm a developing fetus.

  1. Also consume less caffeine. Studies of how caffeine affects baby development have been mixed. However, experts generally recommend low to moderate caffeine consumption; most preferably less than 300 mg per day or approximately the equivalent of two cups of coffee. This amount does not affect your fertility, but several factors can play a role here. Therefore, discuss it with your doctor and he may recommend that you stop with the coffee altogether.

  1. If you are already pregnant, it is generally recommended not to drink more than one cup of coffee per day - higher amounts have been linked to an increased risk of miscarriage. If you are a true coffee drinker and want to get pregnant, try switching to other alternatives without caffeine now.

8. Prenatal Supplements

  1. While you can meet almost all of your nutritional needs through a balanced diet, many experts believe that even the healthiest eaters could use extra help. Taking a prenatal vitamin ensures that you get enough essential nutrients to boost your chances of having a healthy baby.

  1. Remember that a supplement is a supplement and not a substitute for a healthy diet. And since regular multivitamin supplements contain far too high doses of vitamins and minerals that could be harmful to the development of the baby, it is better to choose a supplement specially formulated for pregnant women. If you follow a vegetarian diet, you may also need supplements containing vitamins D and B-12 in combination with extra protein.

  1. Your doctor can take a blood test to detect any deficiencies. You can then supplement these before pregnancy with an appropriate supplement or special dietary adjustments.

9. Get enough folic acid in your diet

  1. Numerous studies have since shown that folic acid drastically reduces the risk of birth defects in your baby's neural tube, and folic acid also reduces the risk of heart attacks, strokes, cancer and diabetes .

  1. For most women of childbearing age, a supplement of 400 micrograms is recommended before pregnancy and 600 micrograms during pregnancy. However, as discussed in this article, it is much better to get this amount from natural foods because of the dangers associated with supplemental folic acid.

  1. Supplemental folic acid is a synthetic form of the nutrient we really need, which is folate. Fortunately, you can easily meet your needs - even during pregnancy - with folate-rich foods, such as dark green leafy vegetables including spinach and kale, citrus fruits, nuts, legumes and whole grains.

  1. Folate (folic acid) is a water-soluble vitamin, so if you consume too much, your body will excrete the excess through the urine. But there is also a drawback to these types of vitamins: because folate is water-soluble, you also get rid of the vitamin when you boil it in water. It then dissolves, as it were, in the cooking liquid that you simply throw away afterwards. A better way to cook folate-rich vegetables is to steam them or eat them raw.

  1. Be aware that excess folic acid can hide a vitamin B12 deficiency in some cases, which could be a problem for vegetarians. Here too a blood test can give a definite answer.

10. Maintain a healthy weight

  1. It might be a good idea to shed some pounds - or even feast on a few if you're underweight - while trying to conceive because you want to get as close as possible to your target weight when you are pregnant. In addition, being over or underweight can make it more difficult to get pregnant. Also, obese women have more complications during pregnancy and delivery, and underweight women are more likely to have a low birth weight of their baby.

  1. In addition to following a healthy diet with less saturated fat and fiber-rich foods, it is also important to exercise enough. If you are overweight, aim for a weight loss of half a kilo per week, which is relatively easy to achieve by making more sensible food choices and exercising more. Extreme weight loss really isn't a great way to prepare your body for pregnancy.

Finally ...

  1. If you are trying to conceive naturally, chances are that it will happen within 6 months. In about 80% of cases it is hit within this time.

  1. But how long do you have to keep trying before you seek help when it doesn't work?

  1. When exactly you should go to a fertility specialist depends largely on your age. Your fertility decreases as you get older, and after 40 it can be a lot harder to conceive and the more important to prepare properly. If you are between 35 and 40 years old and have been trying to conceive for 6 months without success, feel free to talk to your doctor about any options and he can also refer you to a specialist.

  1. If you are younger than 35, you can keep trying for a year before seeing a specialist. Sometimes it just takes a little longer and everyone is different. However, if you know that there is a reason why you and your partner cannot get pregnant, don't wait any longer and start looking for a specialist right away.
