Call of giving natural birth to today's women
How to become pregnant easily?
When to conceive?
Best time to conceive.
Normally menstrual cycle is of 28 - 30 days.
Ovulation (release of egg from ovaries) in women occurs between days 12 - 14.
Thus the best period for conception is in the middle of cycle.
If the menstrual cycle is irregular then it is difficult to predict the day of ovulation.
In one cycle the chances of conception are 20% - 30%.
Normally a fertile couple may take one year to conceive.
So do not start worrying too early.
A pregnancy is the most wonderful experience of life and you should enjoy it to the fullest.
From the day you plan to conceive start taking following medicines to promote normal delivery.
Arnica Mont Q: 1 drop in a cup of water twice daily.
Calcarea Flour 3X: 4 pills morning and evening after meals.
Put 1drop per liter each of ‘Calendula-Q’ and ‘Sulphur-Q’in your bathing water.
What to avoid?
Smoking, drinking, obesity, sedentary habits of modern life-style do increase the risk of abortions.
Cut smoking in pregnancy and don't smoke in the same room as a baby
Place your baby on the back to sleep (not on the front or side)
Don't let your baby get too hot and don't cover the head
Place the baby with their feet to the foot of the cot to prevent them wriggling under the covers or use a baby sleep bag
Never sleep with a baby on a sofa or armchair
The safest place for a baby to sleep is in a crib or cot in a room with you for the first six months
What not to avoid?
Normal physical activity, dietary factors, ascending / descending stairs, sex, travel usually do not lead to abortions, in a normal pregnancy. Weakness and illness during pregnancy does need extra rest and avoidance of any stress.
With good support, rest and proper medical care most of the women with recurrent abortions can achieve a successful pregnancy and giving birth to a healthy baby.
Signs of pregnancy
missed menstrual period, nausea, extreme fatigue, frequent urination, tender breasts, headache, heartburn, constipation, spotting, feeling faint.
Pregnancy is counted from the first day of a woman's last period. This means that at conception, the unborn child is already considered two weeks old!
Women well tuned in to body's rhythms, may begin to suspect being pregnant soon after conception; but most women won't experience any early pregnancy symptoms until several days after conception, others may notice no signs of pregnancy for weeks until they miss a period. Here is a list of some of the first signs of impending pregnancy. You may experience all, some, or none of these symptoms of pregnancy:
Food cravings sometimes may be a sign of pregnancy. Don't rely on them as a sure symptom. but if cravings are accompanied by some of the other symptoms, start counting the days from your last period.
If the skin around your nipples gets darker, you may have successfully conceived, though this may also signal a hormonal imbalance unrelated to pregnancy or be a leftover effect from a previous pregnancy.
Once the embryo implants and begins producing the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), you may need going to bathroom more often. High levels of the hormone progesterone can make you feel tired. Fatigue is a hallmark of early pregnancy, though not a sure symptom on its own. If you're pregnant, your breasts will probably become increasingly tender to the touch, similar to the way they feel before your period, only more so. Once your body grows accustomed to the increased hormones, the pain will subside.
You may notice great changes in sense of taste. Some women say they have a metallic taste in their mouth, others that they cannot stand the taste of coffee, tea, or a food they usually like.
Morning sickness may not hit you until a few weeks after conception, lucky few escape it altogether. But as early as a couple of days following conception, you may begin feeling nauseated and queasy; pregnancy related nausea may be a problem morning, noon, or night. Women having pretty regular periods when find their period late, it's worth trying a pregnancy test. A missed period is the surest sign of pregnancy in a woman of childbearing age who usually has regular periods. Congratulations!
