How Does a Chinese Conceiving Calendar Work? | eHow.com

Increase Your Chances Of Getting Pregnant With Fertility Calendars

Having trouble on getting pregnant? It has been years and you still don’t have your first kid? Well, there is a simple solution for this, the fertility calendars. As you must know, every woman is different, so every woman’s menstrual cycle is also different. Therefore, if you are trying to conceive there will be much more chances of getting pregnant if you have sex during the most fertile days of your cycle.

The fertility calendars predict the days that you are most likely to be fertile so that you can achieve pregnancy. This will show you a range of fertile dates, ovulation, end of menstrual cycle, and possible due dates.

That’s the reason for using fertility calendars. With this you will learn a great variety of ways to help you chart your fertility cycle and how to use the fertility calendars, so you will be able to know when is the best time for having sex with big chances of conceiving.

But that is not all you can get, you can be able to specify a gender preference, so the fertility calendars will provide you with tips to help you time intercourse to maximize your chances of conceiving a boy or a girl. Here is a little explanation: sperm carrying X-chromosomes lives longer and swims slower than male Y-carrying sperm. That means, if you have sex about 3 days prior to ovulation, you have a better chance of conceiving a girl; and if you have sex closer to ovulation you will have more chances are of having a boy, so we could say that it is up to you to decide the sex of your baby.

On the other hand, maybe you are in the opposite situation and you may want to avoid getting pregnant, whether it is because you want to wait before having your next kid or you do not want to have more kids. The fertility calendars may help you with this too. The natural way to avoid unwanted pregnancy is to abstain from unprotected intercourse during your fertile days. The most fertile time is the day of ovulation. Fertility calendars calculate the days in which you can have sex without chances of conceiving, helping you avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

You don’t have to know anything about corpus luteum, progesterone levels, or terms like that, the fertility calendars do all this work for you. All you need to know to begin with this is the length of your menstrual cycle and the date of your last period. Simply enter this little information and the fertility calendars will do the rest!

So, are you convinced you should use the fertility calendars? We assure you will be satisfied with the results.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Has the calendar method worked for you?
    To prevent conceiving, has the calendar method worked for you? In what way did you or your partner use it?

    • ANSWER:
      I was using it and ended up pregnant back in 2002. It’s really not a very reliable method to prevent conceiving.

  2. QUESTION:
    Is it possible to have pregnancy symptoms only 2 weeks after conceiving?
    I think I might be pregnant, and I’ve been feeling really nauseous and stuff without having any infection in my body, just random nausea. I also feel like my boobs have grown a bit bigger. The thing is that according to my calendar, it has only been about two weeks since I conceived. Is it possible to have pregnancy symptoms this early?

    • ANSWER:

      im kinda in the same situation its about 3 weeks after conception if me and my fiance have..could i also be pregnant..

  3. QUESTION:
    Will we have a boy or girl according to the Chinese Calendar?
    My wife and I are trying for a boy after having a daughter. Due to pregnancies issues…my wife has to time conception with medication. We are planned to conceive this Saturday. One Chinese calendar goes by months only (this month is marked in blue indicating “boy”) another Chinese calendar calculator goes by the day and indicates “girl”. Which is correct?

    You tell me…Here’s the info: My wifes age is 30 (by Gregorian Calendar: birth date is Sept. 7, 1977) We are trying to conceive this Saturday, 12/22.

    • ANSWER:
      According to the one I use, (don’t remember the name), but it goes like this…..

      Mother’s Age at Conception: 30

      Month of Conception: 12

      Then you add the two together equalling 42.

      According to this chart, even numbers are girls and odd numbers are boys. ?????

      I don’t know. Personally, I think it is a 50/50 chance and you get what you get because either a girl or boy sperm made it first.

      It is fun to see what you would “possibly” have, however, I am not sure that I would rely entirely on these charts.

      For 00 you can do sperm picks. With this, they take all the girl and all the boys sperms, separate them and inseminate them that way. By doing this, you better your chances of getting what you want, but it is not 100 % proven and it is very costly.

      Good luck on Saturday!! Husband and I are doing IUI (Intrauterine Insemination) in January if we don’t conceive this month and we are hoping for a girl.

      Lots of Baby Dust and Baby Sticky Glue to you and your wife.

      God Bless!!

  4. QUESTION:
    What are my odds of conceiving if I have sex everyday that i’m fertile and ovulating?
    me and hubby are trying to have a baby. My last period was may 8, i’m normal 28 day cycle and did an ovulation calendar and it told us the days when i would ovulate and be most fertile, we did some serious love making before, during, and after. What are our odds that we conceived, and if my period is due on June 6 when should i be able to take a pregnancy test and it be accurate?
    bfp from 9dpo?????

    what is that

    • ANSWER:
      Every couple has a 20-25% chance each month with perfect timing and having no problems. Provided you did ovulate when the calendar says you did, those are your odds. However, those calendars are for women with very consistent cycles, so you may not want to rely solely on them especially if you don’t have a consistent 28 day cycle with ovulation always on cd14.

  5. QUESTION:
    According to the Chinese conception calendar would I have a boy or a girl?
    I am 33 years old and if I conceive now in November, what would I have? I am not sure which calendar to refer to. Some say boy and some say girl. I want to know which one is the right calendar and we want to try for a girl this time.

    • ANSWER:
      A boy!!

      I dont this for everyone i know that has found out what they are having and its correct and for everyone thats had kids and my self! and it was right!!

      Please let me know if you have a boy :)

      good luck x

Back Pain in Pregnant Women–why Your Low Back Hurts During Pregnancy, and How to Get Relief

Back pain in pregnant women is a very common complaint. In fact, as many as 80% of pregnant women will have back pain at some time during their pregnancy. There are several types of back pain that occur among expectant mothers, but low back pain is the most common. But why does your low back hurt during pregnancy?

Backache can occur for a number of reasons, which can be reduced to two main issues: hormones and postural changes.

During pregnancy, your body produces a veritable cocktail of hormones. Among these is a hormone called relaxin. The primary role of relaxin is to loosen the joints and ligaments in your body in order to help them stretch and widen. This allows your body to more easily make room for your baby inside of your pelvis. And, when the time comes for your baby to be born, the hormone relaxin will have helped the joints of your pelvis relax and stretch enough for your baby’s shoulders to pass through your pelvic bones.

But what does all that have to do with lower back pain? Well, unfortunately, your body is unable to isolate which ligaments and joints will stretch and loosen, and this happens on a broad scale throughout your body. As the ligaments and muscles which normally support your spine become lax, it can result in some instability in the spine, which can result in aching and discomfort.

As your uterus expands and your baby grows, it also causes immense changes in your posture, which can result in aching. As your abdomen and uterus stretch, it puts a greater strain on your back muscles.

Your center of gravity is changing. Your abdomen is shifting out and down, and your spine curves backward to try to compensate for this shift. As a result, your spinal muscles become sore and tired, and more prone to injury and strain.

This article will explore the causes of back pain during pregnancy, discuss the different types of back pain that occur, and provide information about what can be done to prevent and relieve prenatal back pain.

There are two common types of low back pain in pregnancy, lumbar pain and posterior pelvic pain.

Lumbar pain is similar to the kind of back pain you may have experienced before you became pregnant. Lumbar discomfort is felt in the lower spine, at the level of, or slightly higher than, your waist. It can also result in pain that radiates to your legs.

Lumbar discomfort can be triggered by sitting or standing for extended periods of time or by repetitive lifting.

Posterior pelvic pain is low back ache that is experienced behind the pelvis, below the waist, and/or across the tailbone or sacrum. It can also be felt in the buttocks, on one or both sides, or in the back of the thighs. You may also have pubic pain. Posterior pelvic pain occurs four times more frequently than lumbar pain during pregnancy.

Posterior pelvic discomfort can be aggravated by bending, twisting, rolling, climbing stairs, and prolonged leaning forward such as occurs when you sit at a computer for extended periods of time.

Posterior pelvic pain is often mistaken as sciatica. When you have sciatica, it causes discomfort not only in the low back, hips, buttocks, and thighs, but also in the legs. With sciatica, the leg pain is generally more severe than the spinal pain, and is accompanied by numbness, tingling, or pin-pricking sensations. This aching and numbness generally radiates all the way into the toes. Numbness may also extend to the groin and genital areas.

Sciatica is generally caused by a herniated or bulging disk.

Your risk of low back pain during pregnancy increases if you have had back aches before becoming pregnant or during a previous pregnancy. You also have an increased risk of prenatal back pain if you are carrying twins or are overweight.

In order to maintain a healthy back during pregnancy, it is essential to engage in a regular exercise regimen. Exercise is essential for controlling and avoiding back pain. When your muscles are weak and inflexible, you are more likely to hurt. Regular exercise will stretch and strengthen your muscles and ligaments to better support your spine and prevent pregnancy back ache from occurring.

Specific exercises to alleviate low back pain during pregnancy include pelvic tilt exercises, Kegel exercises, back stretches, hamstring stretches, chest stretches, and wall squats. For detailed information on how to do these stretches and exercises, you can visit http://www.pregnancymomandbaby.com/painanddiscomfort/back_exercises_for_pregnancy.html

Take extra care to be aware of how you bend and move. That alone can help prevent discomfort before it begins.

Back pain in pregnant women can be frustrating, for sure, but you can find relief. Be sure you are getting adequate rest, nutrition, and exercise, and you will be on the way to eliminating backaches for good.

If your back pain if very intense, is rhythmic and feels like menstrual cramps, or is causing numbness, you should contact your health care provider.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How do I get my girlfriend pregnant without her knowing…?
    My girlfriend doesn’t want a big family but I do. I want 10 – 15 kids and she only really wants 2 or 3. How can I get her knocked up without her fully knowing until it is too late to do anything but have the kid. I was thinking of drugging her and then doing the deed while she’s out and then keeping her in a state of suspended animation until the child comes to term (sort of like Han Solo from Star Wars, but I feel a child would not survive being frozen in carbonite) Anyways, if you have any suggestions don’t hesitate to answer.

    Also if there’s a way to adopt without both spouses present let me know. I figure if I just bring one or two at a time she’ll be too oblivious to know until I get in the double digits. By that point she can’t send me off to be alone with X number of kids because I’ll just put her into a state of suspended animation again until I figure out a good solution.

    And no I’m not trolling, I actually want a large number of kids so help me!
    Ms. Simmon: it’s spelled “you’re” suggesting “you are” not “you have”

    Akoni thank you for understanding I’m being a little bit satirical

    Zernity thanks your honesty, I obviously do need to think longer than 20 minutes about this and take it a little more seriously, but at 18 years old life isn’t entirely real yet. I’ll let a financial crisis or worse introduce me to reality. Thanks for obviously not understanding the fact that I’m not entirely serious about this. I’m hoping I get more responses like this, they are my favorite! :)

    Abbey Rochelle the correct word is psycho, but the correct term is insane. Also it’s “you’re” not “your”. Thank you for not passing remedial English!
    Joseph Stewart:this is not simply a question about sex (as I would want 2 biological children and the rest to be adopted). I’m ridiculous? Yahoo answers has a spell check and you still can’t spell :(? My girlfriend helped me phrase the question so it was concise and to the point (she proofread it, that way I don’t make many spelling mistakes). I wish you well in your relationship, however my kids (all 15) are going to get you… I’m not a dick, I simply have one. Have a wondrous evening!

Lastly, realize that timing your conception can do wonders as well.

This article just answered the question of how to get pregnant naturally with PCOS. Although pregnancy success with PCOS is a merger of natural and artificial methods, this condition can easily be overcome with the right attitude and medication.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does anyone know how to get pregnant naturally with no fertility drugs?
    My husband and I have been trying to have a baby for four years. I have two children already, born a year and one month apart. I would like to have more children but do not really want to have to use fertility drugs. Does anyone know how to get pregnant naturally with either herbal, or natural methods? Thank you very much for any advice or answers given.

    • ANSWER:
      Vitex Chasteberry is an herbal supplement that is used to help balance your hormones, help with fertility, and relieve PMS and Menopause symptoms. There are many websites that you can google, here’s one.

      http://www.susunweed.com/Article_Vitex_RedMoonHerbs.htm

      Also, Evening Primrose Oil has helped people as well.

      Another suggestion may seem odd but it did work for a friend of mine trying to conceive. She used the Instead cups that are intended for use during your period. She would place one in after sex, her and her husband had sex every other day for the week of ovulation, and she would put a cup in immediately after before she stood up. She left it there for a few hours, then would take it out. This keeps the sperm at the cervix, she conceived the first month trying this method after 6 months of trying. It may have been a coincidence but it’s worth a try.

  2. QUESTION:
    How to get pregnant naturally?
    Does anyone know of any programs or ebooks on getting pregnant naturally? And by naturally I mean things like herbal remedies, etc. Thanks!
    Clearly it’s not me who wants to get pregnant, it’s my wife….

    • ANSWER:
      My husband and I used a program called Pregnancy miracle. It worked for us! :)

  3. QUESTION:
    How Do You Get Pregnant? How to get Pregnant naturally?
    We’ve been trying for a long time but can’t get pregnant. Any tips for getting pregnant would be great. We haven’t taken any infertility treatments. We want to get pregnant naturally.

    Thanks in advance!

    • ANSWER:
      I wish there was such a simple answer to that question. There are so many things you need to consider.
      1. It could be a male problem
      2. It could be a female problem
      3. May be there is no problem
      4. You’re simply not ‘doing it’ at time of ovulation
      5. Do you have periods/ovulation regularly?
      6. Do you smoke/ alcohol/ over weight/ etc etc.
      7. Do you have any medical condition like PCOS, endometriosis etc etc?

      See how complicated it can get? Anyway something that I have recently seen people talking about a lot is Chinese medicine for infertility. There are many people that say some changes in the life style can simply get you pregnant.
      Apparently there are many people that managed to get pregnant in spite of being told that they were ‘infertile’ by doctors of western medicine and then years later managed to get pregnant after a few changes in life style like a few small dietery changes etc.

  4. QUESTION:
    How many sperm per milliliter do you need to get pregnant naturally?
    I’ve heard that a normal count is 60-200 million per ml is normal. What are the chances of getting pregnant on 900,000?

    • ANSWER:
      According to the who (world health organization) you need 20 million sperm in the ejaculate to in one year achieve a natural pregnancy. That also assumes the rest of the numbers are good as well. The morphlogy, etc. are at normal levels.

      The odds with 900,000 is less then 1% per a month. I would suggest being seen by a male infertility urologist who can run tests to find out why the count is so low.

      The alternatives is ivf with icsi where they put the sperm into the egg. A very expensive option.

      hope that helps

Need Help Getting Pregnant- 6 Things You Can Do To Get Pregnant Quickly

Pregnancy can give you the chance to experience the joys of motherhood. But due to a hectic lifestyle, you may find that you need help getting pregnant and start worrying about it day and night. Worrying won’t help, but the following ways to get pregnant quickly will surely do so.

1. Be careful about what you eat. Refrain from fats, processed food items etc and have fresh fruits, veggies, lean proteins, milk everyday. Make it a point to abstain from alcohol as far as possible.

2. Take vitamin supplements. Prenatal multi vitamin supplements can really help you get pregnant. Even your partner can take them.

3. Know your monthly menstrual cycle and invest in an ovulation kit to find out the best time to get pregnant. An ovulation kit can be yours for as little as $ 20!

4. Ensure a cool environment when you have sex. Excessive heat can be damaging for the sperms in the semen. Try not to go for hot baths with your partner, to get in the mood for sex!

5. Have sex in a position which is conducive to the flow of sperms in the vaginal canal. Lying on your back with pillows supporting you from underneath can be the best position for fertilization of the egg.

6. Do not try too hard. Enjoy your love making and do not engage in it with pregnancy at the back of your mind. Being preoccupied with pregnancy will result in poor sexual performance and thus, lesser will be your chances of getting pregnant.

Breastfeeding with Raynauds Nipple Vasospasm

A customer at our Breastmates store recently shared her story about her breastfeeding journey and Raynaud’s Syndrome. I want to raise awareness about its treatment, because diagnosis is only the first hurdle.

“When my first child was born after a traumatic labour I found breastfeeding incredibly painful – sharp, burning pain. As the days went on, the pain got worse and continued even when the feed had finished. The medical professionals had no answers because I had "beautiful attachment". Finally a lactation consultant diagnosed me with Raynaud’s.

The telltale sign of Raynaud’s is blanching of the nipple: the nipple turns white because of a constriction of the blood vessels, which causes pain. The nipple blanching can be hard to spot and unfortunately most medical professionals will miss it. I could hardly see it myself! (I have since heard of women who can see the blanching when they are cold, but this was not the case with me.)

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the odds of getting pregnant while breastfeeding?
    I just want to know how likely it is to get pregnant while breastfeeding exclusively and haven’t had a period. Thanks in advance for any stories or info!

    • ANSWER:
      Some time while breastfeeding you will ovulate again. The problem is noone can predict when that will happen. On average it happens about 6 months after a baby is born, but some people are earlier some are later. With my 2 kids I started ovulating 4 weeks after they were born even though I breastfeed exclusively (this was before I was even done healing). My mom was the same way. I have a good friend that decided to use breastfeeding as birthcontrol and now her first 2 children are 10 months apart. My mother in law however never started ovulating again until after her previous baby was over a year. So everyone is different!

  2. QUESTION:
    Getting pregnant while breastfeeding and twins?
    I am 5.5 wks pregnant and I am a breastfeeding mom. I just read that getting pregnant while breast feeding increases your risk of twins 9 times.

    Just wondering of the moms who got pregnant while breastfeeding how many had a single baby and how many had twins or more?

    • ANSWER:
      I think the logic of that thinking is that, when the woman starts ovulating again, it is a bit inconsistent and instead of one egg, she may release two in one month and maybe none in the next month.

      But, like the other responders, I’ve never heard of that.

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the chances of me getting pregnant while breastfeeding?
    Hello, I just had a baby a little over 8 weeks ago. I am breastfeeding, but I’m still having my period. My husband and I have not been very careful the last few times we had sex. What is the liklihood that I can get pregnant?

    • ANSWER:
      Are you EXCLUSIVELY breastfeeding, or are you supplementing? Are you nursing on demand? Does baby have long periods of sleep or are you nursing around the clock?

      Since you are only 8 weeks PP, are you sure you’re having a period already, or are you still having lochia from the birth? If you are exclusively BF, it would be odd for you to be having a period this early on.

  4. QUESTION:
    What are the chances of getting pregnant while breastfeeding?
    My son is now 2months and I been breastfeeding the whole time, but lately I been feeling really tired and I can’t seem to get full and I always have a craving for somethings. Is it possible for me to be pregnant????

    • ANSWER:
      Breastfeeding is up to 98% effective as a natural contraceptive for up to six months after childbirth if your period has not returned. This method of birth control is called the Lactational Amenorrhea Method or LAM. LAM is most effective when you can also answer “Yes” to the following questions:

      Do you plan to breastfeed fully for at least 6 months after the birth of your baby? This means that at least nine out of 10 feedings are breast feedings. Breastfeeding women who depend on LAM to prevent pregnancy should limit the number of supplemental feedings given to their infants to no more than 5 to 10 percent for the best contraceptive results.

      Do you plan to breastfeed your baby at least once every four hours during the day and every six hours during the night? The most significant impact on fertility is achieved when feedings are spaced out no more than four hours during the day and six hours during the night.
      According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists or the ACOG, direct breastfeeding is the most effective method for women using LAM.

      Other feeding methods may “reduce the vigor and frequency of suckling and the maternal neuroendocrine response…” This may increase the probability of ovulation returning. Additional contraception is recommended for women who are unable to directly breastfeed during the majority of feedings, as described above.

  5. QUESTION:
    What are my odds of getting pregnant while breastfeeding?
    I don’t want to get preganant. I know breastfeeding is not a form of birth control. I haven’t started my period yet. I only breastfed about six times in a 24 period. He is nine months and is eating a lot more soilds. Can I still get pregnant even though I have not had a period yet.
    I use condoms most of time but haven’t a couple of times.

    • ANSWER:
      yes you can, that why your dr. is probably harrassing you on what birth control method you want.. the pills works great but with a baby.. you are gonna forget.. shot will be a good options for you.. dont have to worry for 3 months!

Main Reasons for Infertility

Infertility is an extremely common problem affecting more than 1 in 7 couples. It can be a stressful time trying for a baby but stress itself could reduce your chances of conceiving.

In a recent survey three quarters of the men questioned admitted that trying to conceive put adverse pressure on their relationship with their partner. Many people are putting off trying for a family but medical research suggests that the older the woman is the more difficult it could be to conceive.

In this interview TV GP, Dr Chris Steele offers his advice on trying for a baby.

Do people often worry about getting pregnant?

Yes, women are tending to put off their first baby until their career is a bit more established. There’s been a recent survey done which shows that nearly 72% of men thought that trying for a baby put pressure on their relationship with their partner. If you’ve been delaying your first baby and then suddenly you’re trying for a baby it’s a lot of pressure. Patients often come to my surgery and ask me how they can make sure they’re in good health and fitness so fertility won’t be affected.

Do people take it for granted that they will be able to get pregnant?

Diet and lifestyle is vital. The feeding of that developing foetus is paramount and people need to look more closely at nutrition and lifestyle. Women know about folic acid but that’s just one. There are many, many other supplements.

Do you have a plan for couples to follow when trying to get pregnant?

Look at diet. For men, foods that are rich in vitamin C and Zinc because of the beneficial effect on sperm count. For women, your greeny leafy veg for the folic acid but make sure you have a varied diet with your five portions of fruit and veg a day and take a supplement. The timing of intercourse is also very important. You ovulate 14 days before the first day of your next expected period. If you’ve got a regular 28 day cycle it is 14 days but if you’ve got a 32 day cycle well then you’re ovulating around day 18 not day 14. The thing to do is have intercourse two days before, the day of and the day after. After intercourse the woman should not get up and dash to the loo but stay in bed. The main reason for this is to give the sperms a chance to get into the cervix. You should also relax and avoid the bad habits like smoking and alcohol.

How long, on average, does it take to fall pregnant?

A few years back the advice we gave was keep trying for two years. Now it’s down to just one year. If you’ve still not conceived after this period of time then make an appointment to see your local GP or health advisor.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What finger food did you start your baby with? Trying baby led weaning!?
    My bubba is 6 months old and I’ve been experimenting with purees for a few weeks but then looked into BLW after he was literally grabbing food off of me. So far I have just given him a bit of plain toast which he loved but just wanted to see what else I could give him. Thank you x

    • ANSWER:
      My oldest son started finger foods at around 8 months old. With our youngest son we did Baby Led Weaning so he started finger foods and self-feeding at 6 months old. My youngest son actually had a whole banana as his first food. Not much got in his mouth and it was very messy but he thoroughly enjoyed it! The number of teeth doesn’t really matter as babies will mash food with their gums.

      The types of food we offered included roast veggies, steamed veggies, shredded chicken pieces, meat pieces (in casseroles & stews etc), fresh fruit (with or without yoghurt dip), toast with fruit spread, cheese slices and sandwiches (grilled cheese is great).

      With the fruit we cut it into finger sized pieces for things like peach, apricot, watermelon, rockmelon and pear. We sliced things like tomato, cucumber, avocado and apple (thinly). Sometimes we even gave the whole fruit like banana (easier to pick up whole) or pear. The pieces were large enough for our son to pick up and gnaw but not stick the whole lot in his mouth.

      With Veggies we roasted sweet potato, potato, pumpkin, squash and carrot and cut into chunks. Veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, carrot and asparagus we steamed. (Carrot cut into sticks. Broccoli and cauliflower into florets. Asparagus spears).

      We also did pasta spirals with either cheese or tomato based sauces. Casseroles with lots of veggies & meat are nice and soft for baby as well.

      If there are no history of allergies like egg they make great finger food. You can boil them up and give baby slices of boiled egg. Also omelettes and frittatas are easy to make and nutritious as well.

  2. QUESTION:
    What soul song is this? “I’ve been really trying baby” Please help?
    Hi

    I heard this song a while ago and need it for a movie project. It’s sounds like a soul song. The only lyrics I know are “I’ve been really trying baby” with some lead guitar in the background.

    I managed to find this clip but it’s only about 5 seconds long.

  3. QUESTION:
    Anyone else trying Baby Led Weaning?
    I overheard a woman talking about baby led weaning on the bus…she was saying that she is waiting until her daughter is developed enough to pick up and eat solids herself rather than being force fed pureed food. I was wondering if anyone else was trying this? How is it working for you? How do you get started? My daughter is 4 1/2 months old and I know shes not ready for solids but shes been taking food off my plate and sucking on it, I’m thinking we will try this method.

    • ANSWER:
      My son is baby led weaning, also known as self feeding.. He is seven months old and he started around five and a half months.

      I give him toast, bagels, big pieces of fruits and veggies (steamed), basically anything that I am eating within reason. He has never even come close to choking..

      Occasionally, I will spoon feed him some things. You can just give your child the bowl and spoon and let them figure it out by watching you. Give them things that stick heavy on the spoon like oatmeal, mashed potatoes, mashed beans.

      It’s messy, but who cares? It comes with the territory. My 18 month old daughter has been feeding herself for sometime now with competence and very little mess.

  4. QUESTION:
    How do I wash ink off of my newborn baby?
    I was trying to do a print of my baby’s hand – I didn’t have a kit- just used a regular ink pad – it said it was non-toxic – but now I’m worried it’s dangerous – I just did one hand. I’m trying to wash it off – tried baby wash & baby oil – kinda working – any ideas? Also- does anyone think the ink is dangerous for him?

    • ANSWER:
      We did the same thing with my DS. Non-toxic ink pads are just that, not toxic. We used baby wipes on his hands and feet immediately after making the prints and almost all the ink came off! If it has been on a little while, then I would suggest taking a long bath and using a terrycloth washcloth to gently scrub the ink off (think mild exfoliation). The ink should come off fairly quickly under those conditions. Just remember that your precious little one will soon be in school writing on himself and others with ink that is far worse than this! Your baby will be fine!

  5. QUESTION:
    Me and my fiance have been trying to have baby,tried many tactics,none worked. How do i know if i am sterile?
    My fiance and my self have been trying to have a baby and we have went on google for best positions,fertility calenders, you name it we have tried it. Is there a way to tell if i am sterile without going to the doctor, and if there isnt then what type of medical unit should i attend.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What are the best ways to comfort a baby, who is teething?
    What are the best ways to comfort a baby, who is teething?

    My baby is 6 months old baby boy and keeps grabbing anything that come in sight and makes a attempt to bite it. He has already got two teeth in lower jaw.

    Teether does not really help… can anyone please suggest some other ways to comfort this growing up pain.

    • ANSWER:
      Cold solids. If you’ve started solids, cold fruit always helped my daughter at that age. Like, watermelon and small bites of cold, peeled apples… depending on how far a long you are on starting solids and seeing if he’s allergic or not. You can always put the teether in the fridge or freezer for a bit to make it cold, for him to suck on. There is also teething medicine but I can’t think of the name of it…

  2. QUESTION:
    What are the best ways to make selling baby clothes very lucrative on eBay?
    I have sold baby clothes on ebay before and I sold everything I listed they sell very fast, but I spent more on shipping them, than I had made from the selling price. Someone said I need to buy a scale and use it to weigh the items before I post the shipping price so that I know exactly how much to charge. I have that part down. Are there specific items that sell more than others that I should focus on?

    • ANSWER:
      Unless they are designer labels or very top high street, I think it’s only really worth selling baby items in bulk.

      Not necessarily a bin bag full… but I think grouping three or four pairs of jeans or dungarees together, or five tops, or similar, seems to do best.

      With newborn clothes making a little collection of basics, a few bodysuits, a few babygrows, some bibs, hats, socks etc. in one lot seems to do well.

      With older baby clothes, try to group things up that are relatively similar (to suit tastes) but not so similar that it’s not worth having 2 of, together. For example sometimes I’ve looked at a bulk sale of 5 or 6 items, and I’ve liked all of it except for one thing. So if you try and match so that each item in each load will match the same tastes then it’ll do better.

      Really, unless as I said the clothes were expensive in the first place, I really don’t think it’s worth selling baby clothes as singular items just for the reasons you mentioned.

      As for postage – well I’m not sure how it works wherever you live, but if you’re in the UK you can take the package along to the Post Office and have them weigh it and give you a postage cost, without having to actually post it then, so you can come back and know how much to list the selling price as and then take it back when you’ve sold it.

      Alternatively, a good indicator is to look at similar items, so if you have a bulk of five items, look for similar sized bulks, and see what the average price of postage they’ve given is, and judge it from that.

      I always find that if you put a Buy It Now option on the listing as well as the bid, things get snapped up easier. A lot of people, me included, hate the uncertainty of bidding on stuff and having to wait around to find out if I’ve got it. When I want to buy something I want to know I have it there and then, so that I can keep shopping around if I don’t get it, nothing is more tedious to me than waiting around on an auction, and I’ve found a lot of people are the same. And I would usually be willing to pay a little bit extra rather than chance it on a bid if it means I know I’ll have it. I’ve sold heaps of stuff on Ebay before and 9 times out of 10 if I put a Buy It Now option on it it’ll sell.

  3. QUESTION:
    What are the best ways to hold a baby?
    I have some family friends in town and they brought their newborn for a visit. I’m a petite person and small for my age (in my early 20s). I also have petite hands. I don’t have any kids of my own yet, so I thought I would ask the question here. What are some good positions for me to use when I’m holding a baby? I don’t hold babies very often, especially newborns and I’m always afraid that I’ll drop them and that their heads will roll back. Any advice from parents would be helpful, no dumb answers.

    • ANSWER:
      Lay the baby on your arm (left or right, whatever is comfortable) with its head in the crook of your elbow. Then use your spare hand underneath to support your arm and their head.
      Some babies don’t like being on their back though so you can also put them up on your chest or shoulder. Put one hand behind their head and neck with your fingers splayed around their head to support it and the other hand under their bottom.

      The best thing though, is to just sit down when you are holding a newborn for the first few times to get used to it and do what seems comfortable for the baby and you. They will let you know if they are uncomfy or want to be upright or laying down. Remember they aren’t quite as fragile as we all think and you aren’t going to break them just by holding them. Just remember to keep the head supported and you’ll be fine.

  4. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to baby-proof a house?
    My daughter is 4 months old and so close to crawling that I don’t want to wait any longer to baby-proof. I also have a 5 year old son that has lots of little toys, so any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    • ANSWER:
      First off talk to your son about his toys and the safety of the baby. Heres the best trick to teach him right away:

      Give him an empty toilet paper roll and explain that any toy or small item that fits through this roll is the size thats dangerous for the baby to choke on.
      I got this tip from a parenting magazine based on the size of a babys mouth and throat. I gave each of my kids their own empty roll and sent them to work. It worked out well for my family. Make sure your son keeps his door closed at all times to ensure that his “big boy toys” are always seperate from the baby’s things. Remind him to keep the bathroom door closed as well.

      My philosophy on baby proofing is different than a lot of people. I usually only keep the dangerous chemicals out of reach and leave all the other cabinets unlocked. I feel that putting cabinet baby locks on every drawer and cabinet will not protect the baby at all. In fact it will give the parents a false sense of security thinking “well she cant even open that door, its locked” I had a toddler dismantle a door lock and reassemble it and hand it to me once. I decided right then and their that those things only work for so long and the day they figure out how to undo it, you may be distracted and not notice right away. I stayed close enough to say “NO” in a loud, clear, voice until the baby, even at 4-6 months can clearly understand what it means. Then they learn about where its ok to play and not ok.

      Finally, I have one room in my house that I have altered until I feel it is completely safe and when I need to turn my back on a baby and dont want to put him/her in a swing or playpen, I use this room, Im talking about short periods of time here. But that room is where I keep the toys for chewing and make sure cords, windows, appliances, furniture, everything is stable and/or safely out of reach.

      Another trick I read about once is to get down on the floor on your back and stomach and see from your baby’s level. The world looks much different from there. A plant stand that is unstable might be just the place for her to pull up, it may topple on her. A book on a shelf can be pulled off and fall on the baby. A battery has rolled under the couch, out of the sight of the adults but within perfect reach of the baby. A cord attached to a floor lamp . Anything that you can see from her level is a potential attention grabber for her. Remember that she is just learning about her surroundings and everything is a toy and goes right to her mouth. Good Luck, Im sure you will do a great job babyproofing your home.

  5. QUESTION:
    What is the best way to baby-proof a gaurd rail?
    I have a balcony with a rail that is roughly 3 ft tall. a Baby can easily climb over the fense. any ideas about how to either increase the height without harming the aesthetics, or have some sort of alarm that sounds when they attempt to climb over it?

    • ANSWER:
      DO NOT rely just on an alarm. We lived in a “Frank Lloyd Wright” student designed house, meaning it had odd levels and balconies, etc. THEN we had a baby, which we hadn’t planned when we bought the house. We tried alarm. Nope.
      Alarms cannot always be heard from other parts of house, or get drowned out by loud noises. Have an alarm as a backup if you want but ALSO…
      Install plexiglass shields as much a 5 or 6 feet high. This may be costly. But they cannot be scaled if you have no furniture up against them, and if 6 ft high, not even if kid pushes furniture over.
      Keep doors locked and be hypervigilant. That’s a big part of what we did with our son. I just had to be within 2 feet of him at all times. We were really bonded. And we went to the park a lot instead of hanging out on the deck.
      Baby will gain a fear of heights in a couple of years– then you can go as much as 4 feet away and just keep an eye on him/her.
      Enjoy this time. They grow too fast!

Baby Gender Predictor : How To Plan For A Girl Or Boy

How Can I Time My Ovulation To Conceive A Boy? Here's How

If you want to have a baby boy, there are a few natural ways that you can manipulate the timing and position of intercourse and vaginal PH during conception that can greatly increase your chances of having a son.

Of these variables, timing conception to correspond with the woman’s ovulation can be one of the most important pieces of this puzzle. Here’s why:

Y (Boy) Sperm Are Faster, But Weaker Than X (Girl): During conception, a man’s sperm contains an equal amount of chromosomes that after conception can produce either a male and female baby. If a Y chromosome sperm fertilizes the egg first, the conception will result in a baby boy. If it’s instead an X, the result will be a baby girl.

Since the sperm contain both X and Y chromosomes, couples have a random chance of conceiving either sex going in. However, you can manipulate different variables, based on what we know about the different characteristics of each.

For example, the Y (boy sperm) are very fast swimmers and will generally make it to the egg first. The catch though is that they are much more fragile and die off faster. The X (girl) are extremely hard and can survive for a longer period of time in a harsher environment.

Timing Of Ovulation For A Boy: That’s why in order to have a son, you should conceive as close to possible on the day of ovulation. The most optimal time is on the day of. If you conceive well before ovulation, you would increase your chances of having a girl because this would give the hardier X sperm the advantage since they can survive long enough to wait for the egg while the Y can not.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Im feeling ovulation cramps right now, when should I have intercourse to conceive a boy?
    I should be the most fertile on the tenth and eleventh, but I feel cramps right now on the eighth. We want to conceive our third child and wish for it to be a boy. We are using the ovulation timing method.Any idea of what to do? Im confused from all the information out there.
    we already have 2 girls and would be happy with either another girl or a boy, but we want to try our best at having a boy.

    • ANSWER:
      You cannot do anything to determine the sex of your child. There are many old wives tales out there but they are not scientifically accurate. An egg carries the XX chromosome while the sperm cell carries XY thereby determining the gender of the baby. Many sperm cells enter your body and they each have a set gender and it’s really pure luck which sperm reaches the egg.

  2. QUESTION:
    sex on ovulation day to conceive a baby boy, sex days before ovulation to concieve baby girl?
    im trying to conceive. if i have sex everyother day until day suppose to have period will i def get pregnant? also had an ovarian cyst 8 months ago, will i still be bale to get prego? is it true to conceive a baby girl i need to have sex days before ovulation and not on ovulation day? if u have sex on ovulation test will you conceive a baby boy? please let me know.

    • ANSWER:
      Having intercourse everyday is the only way to improve your chances for getting pregnant.. Also if ones has intercourse everyday it does affect the sperm count as it keeps reducing which increases the chances for baby girl.. If you would have noticed mostly male partners who work abroad, guys in army, or military who don’t ejaculate for a long time and have intercourse once they are back have chances for high percentage of boys as per study…

      I think its again the fate of the baby whether it will become a boy or a girl and no one can decides or predict the perfect ovulation time. Also fyi. the egg decides which one of the healthy sperm it wants, because without the permission of the egg it cannot gain entry… Its only nature that decides…Hope it helps…

  3. QUESTION:
    Does it work to conceive a boy on the day of ovulation?
    When the utterus mucus appear, it is true that it is more common to conceive a boy? Had it work to someone?

    • ANSWER:
      they say that male sperm are faster swimmers and femalesperm live longer, so that’s why for a boy they say to have sex the day before ovulation, and the day of ovulation.

  4. QUESTION:
    how to conceive a boy during ovulation?
    Me and my husband just realized that having a baby boy youll have to do it the day after ovulation 1 day after

    or a girl 3 days before. Today is day 11 for me ,ive heard most woman ovulate from day 11-21 ,I also know that woman dont always ovulate the same time every month either.

    if you were trying for a boy would it be better to try later like day 14- 21 or earlier like a few days before day 11- day 14?

    either way we’ll be happy whatever outcome girl or boy its just we feel theres so much more you can do with boys.

    • ANSWER:
      I read somewhere that sperm carrying the male gene swim faster and have more staying power than the ones carrying the female gene. So you could try doing it standing up for a boy.

  5. QUESTION:
    Want to conceive a boy. Using clearblue digital ovulation at the moment.?
    In the pack it says that once you detect positive LH surge, you are to ovulate between 24-36 hrs. If i get positive at lunch time, when am I best to do it so Ihave the best chance of conceiving a boy. Thanks. Hope you can help.

    • ANSWER:
      At this one web site I was at it said that to try for a boy its best to have sex day of or day after you release your egg. Because the sperm that is the Y chromosome swims a little faster than the one with the X Chromosome. But its all luck of conception. Good luck. And just be happy with the child you have its what your to have.

Conceiving A Baby And Conception Positions

Conceiving a baby successfully means understanding the best conception positions, your monthly reproductive cycle and your overall health. Conceiving a baby and pregnancy are wonderful events that are complex but very satisfying and exciting. Here are tips on the best conception positions and getting pregnant:

1. Know your fertile time – in general, ovulation occurs about 14 days before your next period begins. For women with cycles of 28 days, that could make day #14 your most fertile for getting pregnant (day #1 being the first day that your last period began). If your have a 30-day cycle, day #16 may be the best time to go for it.

2. Monitor your basal body temperature – the slight elevations in your body temperature when you awake each day signal your most fertile time. When conceiving a baby is the goal, use a basal thermometer that is accurate enough to detect these slight changes in your body temperature.

3. Monitor your cervical mucus – ovulation causes a change in the appearance and consistency of cervical mucus. By checking yourself each day, you’ll be able to see the ‘egg-white-like’ vaginal discharge that indicates ovulation and your most fertile time for conceiving a baby.

4. The best of the conception positions is the missionary position – the time-proven ‘man-on-top’ position works with gravity to encourage semen flow toward the uterus that maximizes the chance of a sperm uniting with the egg, causing conception.

5. Use the rear-entry position – another of the conception positions is the ‘doggy-style’, which allows your partner to deposit semen close to your cervix.

6. Use the side-by-side position – again, this position allows your partner’s sperm to start their journey as near your cervix as is possible. For all three conception positions mentioned, after ejaculation, you can remain on your back with your legs bent a few minutes to further maximize semen flow toward the uterus.

7. Adopt a healthy lifestyle – this is one of the most important tips for conceiving a baby. Healthy living includes a sensible diet, nutritional supplements, adequate quality sleep, managing stress, some exercise and weight management. Another of the conceiving a baby tips is to simply relax and enjoy your partner. Enjoy the closeness you’ll experience with someone you truly care about.

And your desire for becoming pregnant and conceiving a baby will have even more importance to you if it means you’ll be taking better care of yourself and your partner. Not only does that mean a more healthy you, it also means you’ll increase the chances of having a healthier baby. That’s the kind of beginning you want to provide that new person that you know is going to be a star.

    Me and my husband are wanting to try for a baby. Im wanting to know all the little “tips” that make it easier EG: Some women have said laying down on the bed for 5 mins after ejaculation helps the sperm…… or any types of food that can help? x

    • ANSWER:
      hello. :) There are many “methods” that a lot of women use when trying to conceive. If you aren’t sure if/when you ovulate, Ovulation Predictor Kits (OPKs) can be a useful tool. My doctor asked me to start charting my cervival mucus and basal body temperature (BBT). You would need to buy a basal thermometer (I got mine from walmart for under ten dollars) and then just take your temperature at the same time every morning before you get out of bed. If you chart everyday, you will start to see a trend. Your temperature will go up slightly when you are ovulating.
      Make sure you and your partner are eating healthy and trying to follow healthy lifestyles. If either of you smoke, drink, or participate in illegal recreation– now is the time to cut back/quit those things. Have your man avoid polyester underwear, and things like hottubs and saunas— these things can deplete sperm. You should go ahead and begin taking prenatal vitamins. Are you using any types of lubes? Many studies found that using lubricants or saliva can actually damage the sperm and prevent it from being able to have the mobility to reach the egg. Some fertility-friendly lubes would be ConceivePlus and Pre-Seed. We use pre-seed, and both really like it.
      It is important to note that if you have sex on the days leading up to ovulation, the sperm can live inside you, and then will already be up there waiting for the egg to fertilize. My doctor told us to have sex (starting around day 6 or 7) every other day. This way there is always sperm ready up there, and your man also has a day to let his sperm supply replenish. She did say that on the prime ovulation days (such as day 14 & 15) to have sex on both of those days. After sex my hubby and I lay together, side by side, with my legs up on the wall. A lot of times he will put his legs up on the wall too, so that I don’t feel so silly! :) We still cuddle and bond post-sex, we just do it in a way that allows us to better our chances for trying to conceive. I usually sit with my legs up for about 15 minutes.
      I really hope that this helped you in some way– — and good luck! Enjoy this journey; It can be long and stressful, but it will all pay off.

  2. QUESTION:
    Does anyone have any tips for conceiving a baby girl?
    Me and my husband have three boys and desperately want a baby girl. I don’t have regular periods at all, if that helps. I saw some stuff about Acidity and Alkanity. Is that true?

    • ANSWER:
      It’s supposed to be. To increase your odds of conceiving a girl have sex several days before you start ovulating. Buy ovulation kits so that you know when that will be. Stop having sex the day before you ovulate and don’t have sex for several days after. Have sex in the missionary position. Don’t orgasm. Have your hubby take a warm bath before. Avoid caffeine. Make your vaginal area as acidic as possible, douche with vinegar first.

    I need baby names and conceiving tips?
    My husband and I are trying to conceive (Any tips, we could use them?) and we want a good old fashioned name. ( Rebecca, Jacob, bible names in general; uncommon would be great.) Basically, conceiving tips and names for boys and girls.)
    Serious comments only please. This is a serious matter in my husband and my lives.

    • ANSWER:
      conceiving tips AND baby names? Wow you are just jumping right in with an optimistic attitude, good for you.
      Well my tips would be to know the approximate time you ovulate if you have regular cycles, if you don’t then perhaps a fertility monitor or ovulation testing kit (pee test strips).
      *Make sure you have sex at least every other day right after your period ends until it starts again.
      *Begin a prenatal vitamin supplement and then a daily multi-vitamin for your husband.
      *See your Dr for a pre-conception check-up/exam.

Gender Choosing

Choose the Gender of Your Baby with a Natural Way

Most young parents today want two kids, a boy and a girl, perfec 00004000 t, but in fact some of them do not get that way. Four girls in a row and hoping the next one will be a boy or vice versa. While some parents will be happy with either gender, some are desperately searching for methods to influence whether their child will be a girl or a boy. The ethics of it are for you to decide, the fact remains that there are natural methods you can use to increase the chance of having a baby of specific gender that you want.

The methods are very simple and logic, they are centered on the fact that it is men who determine the gender of the baby. Men carry two chromosomes, an X chromosome and a Y chromosome. So men can contribute X sperms and Y sperms. Only one sperm is needed to fertilize the egg cell. X sperms are essential to create a girl and Y sperms are essential for a boy. By knowing and understanding these differences, you can manipulate (in natural way) certain circumstances in women’s body to generating a suitable environment for certain type of sperms to outshine the other type and get to the women’s egg cell first.

In nature X sperms require a more acidic environment while Y sperms require an alkaline environment. The pH levels of women’s body will determine how thick the cervical discharge is and whether or not the desired sperms will be able to get through successfully. And each type of sperm also has its own characteristic.

There are some natural things you can do to create a suitable environment for the sperm you want to survive and arrive at the main destination. First is the right diet, certain diet will create certain pH level in women’s body, for example you should eat a calcium-rich diet if you want to conceive a baby girl and a potassium-rich diet if you want a baby boy.

The other factor is the right position of intercourse. Ok maybe it is sound silly, but it play a great effect in determine the gender of your baby. This has to do with sperm characteristics. If you want a boy than you need the Y sperms to get to the egg as quickly as possible, because Y sperms are swim slower than X sperms. So you need to put them deep within as close to the cervix as possible to shortening the trip they must take to arrive at the egg. Positions that allow for deep penetration are very ideal.

Conversely if you want a girl baby then you need to make it more difficult for Y sperms to arrive at the target. These mean positions that allow shallow penetration are very ideal, allowing the Y sperms to die off and giving the X sperms the chance they need to arrive at the egg first.

There are still many other methods that you can learn and use to increase the likelihood of having a baby of specific gender. Although the methods do not ensure a 100% success but they will surely boost the probability of the success.

  3. QUESTION:
    Why do women feel that it’s okay to discriminate on the basis of gender when choosing a gynecologist?
    Many women are only willing to be examined by female gynecologists. Would it therefore be reasonable to dismiss a female home renovation contractor from consideration because of her gender?

      I Loathe Women Gynecologists. Give me a Man any time. They are way more gentle than a woman, and cut those darn nails!

  4. QUESTION:
    What is your opinion on choosing the gender and traits of an unborn baby?
    Do you think its a good thing or a bad thing? Please be descriptive.

    • ANSWER:
      Absolutely NOT.

      I encourage everyone to watch the film GATTACA. It was a sci-fi movie about a future in which traits were chosen by the parents, and children not born via fertilization face a future of menial labor and hardship.

      Besides, with so many “perfect” people the world would be so boring.

      Personally, if you want to chose the traits of your child you are a very shallow and superficial person- you should love your child for who they are going to be, not choose it for them.
