Did you take alot of pre-conception steps?

As in did you start a new diet or begin vitamins preparing your body for pregnancy? Did you also have your hubby do the same?

  • No. We just stopped using condoms when we were TTC. :)

  • Yes-- we went gluten and dairy free. We both did. We changed our water filtration system. We didn't have any habits to quit-- neither of us do caffeine, smoke, or drink. Totally clean eating-- about 80% raw foods.

    We got pregnant on the first try. Worked great. We've stuck with it too.

  • Make sure you're taking a prenatal vitamin. other than that, have fun - we had sex every other day during the ovulation period and i always propped my legs up on the wall afterward for 15-20 min afteward.

    This time, but not with my first, I cut out caffeine after the 3rd month of trying and got pregnant right away. Good luck!

  • Nope. I slept with my hubby for almost a year before we got pregnant the first time and we didn't use any protection at all. I didn't think I could get pregnant until I had an allergic reaction to a painkiller that they gave me after getting my bottom two wisdom teeth removed. It changed my chemicals just enough that I conceived within 2 weeks.
