Getting pregnant – however natural it sounds – doesn’t come naturally for a lot of women. If you’ve tried some tips and tricks before, perhaps it’s time you considered a few tips off the beaten track. Here’s a roundup of successful yet weird tips for getting pregnant.
Weird tips for getting pregnant you can use
You’ll be eating it straight out of the jar as soon as you have kids, so you might as well get a head start on the game. According to a confession on Mom.me, one woman fell pregnant after indulging in way too much Nutella on vacation with her hubby. Perhaps it was due to the laid-back vibes she maintained throughout the holiday. We reckon it could have been due to the plant protein present in Nutella, which is much better than animal protein.
2. Give acupuncture a try
The idea of having your body decorated with tiny needles might not sound appealing, but it does sound better than IVF, so why not? By getting acupuncture, you’ll be treated to a pain-relieving, mood-boosting treatment that could boost your fertility. A lot of moms that had problems with irregular cycles swear by the acupuncture method. According to a fit pregnancy article, one woman started ovulating and got her cycle back under control after an acupuncture treatment.
3. Wear some socks to bed
Socks definitely don’t form part of sexy bedroom attire, but they could help boost your chances of success in the baby-making game. When your feet are warm, circulation is improved. This improves blood circulation all over which can lead to healthier sperm and a cosier womb.
4. Drink more whole milk
Skim milk might be lower in fat, but if you’re trying to conceive, opt for the full-fat version of the white gold. There has been evidence showing that whole milk can help your ovaries produce more healthy eggs, which is exactly what you need.
5. Turn to cough syrup
Some women swear by the idea of cough syrup being a pregnancy miracle. Although cough syrup works to clear up coughs and the sinuses, it also helps to thin out mucus. This makes breathing easier. Surprisingly, cough syrup doesn’t only work for your upper airways: it works down there too, thinning out and increasing the production of cervical mucus. This can make it easier for sperm to get past the cervix and get to the egg.
