  • You're most fertile when you ovulate...which happens approximately 14 days before your period begins. There are ovulation predictor tests you can buy...I'm sure they are where the pregnancy tests are.

  • By ready, you mean finacially secure, with a great jump on retirement savings and ready to start saving for college?

  • She didnt ask "Help!! I need to know if you mommys think Im ready to get preg. and have a baby????" Only she knows when shes ready to try and have a baby and obviously she and her boyfriend are ready. To answer your question when we were trying to get preg. I would use the ovulation calculator which you can find on many diff. websites just google "ovulation calculator" Both times I used it I found it very acurate. GL!!!

  • Get married, then you will be ready for a baby!

  • Try reading "Taking Charge of your Fertility" by Toni Weschler. It will help you out. If you have a regular cycle then it's easier to tell when you are fertile. You will always ovulate 12-16 days prior to day 1 of your period. BUT you must have fertile cervical mucous for the sperm to survive long enough to get to the egg. So you can ovulate but not have enough mucous and thereby will not get pregnant. I would start by charting. Take BBT in the morning and check cervical position and mucous to determine 1. if you are ovulating and 2. if you have fertile cervical mucous.

  • Guys shut up with the getting married not everyone wants to get married people have different beliefs just because there beliefs do not match your does not mean that you should discredit them in anyway!!!! To answer your question I am using lady timer and I have found it to be unsuccessful I am personally thinking of trying an ovulation prediction kit

  • I find to be really good. It will even send you reminders 3 days before your first fertile day.

    Good luck and ignore the hags that feel the need to lecture you on being married. It's none of their business and they obviously need to get a life!

  • First off does she really need a piece of paper to be ready for a baby? Thats absolutely absurd!....I am 28 yrs old, engaged to my fiance....we started to plan our wedding then realized that at this point it was more important for us to have our children closer in age than it was to throw an extravagent we are post poning our wedding until after we have another baby. And i will NOT go to the justice of peace just for a piece of paper!

    Back to the subject....It is an average that women ovulate 14 days into their cycle...but its not for everyone...I ovulate on day 10 so if i were to wait until 14 i would miss it. I suggest joining one of the ttc groups on cafemom...they are a wealth of knowledge...good luck!
