Trying for a Baby in 2019? Top Tips for a Healthy Conception

If your goal in 2019 is to make your family a little bit bigger, then this is the blog post for you. Here we cover some helpful tips and tricks to ensure your chances for pregnancy are high, but be aware that these are by no means substitutes for medical advice. Read on…

Track your Menstruation and Ovulation

Technology can help you in more ways than you realise. Take, for example, the number of menstrual cycle tracking apps available for free download on your phone. By inputting information every month, these apps will help you record data and determine when you may be ovulating, which is simply when your ovaries release an egg capable of fertilisation.

If you want to better track your ovulation, you can also try the Clearblue Advanced Digital Ovulation Test, which identifies four or more of your most fertile days. This will allow you to fall pregnant naturally. Each test in this 10-test pack is more than 99% accurate, so do pair this with a period tracking app like Eve for optimal results.

Maintain a Healthy Body Weight

If you have an irregular period and tracking your ovulation is proving difficult, it is recommended to try seeking out what may be the cause for this irregularity. Sometimes, being underweight, overweight or obese can impact your period, making your cycle longer or shorter than usual, or eradicating it entirely.

You don’t have to be athletic and fit to get pregnant, but reaching a healthy body weight does increase your chances. Research shows that overweight women can take twice as long as women with normal body weights to conceive, while underweight women can take four times as long!

If you’re overweight, try bringing your weight to a normal BMI via a combination of an exercise and diet, If you’re underweight and have difficulty gaining weight, consult a doctor for safe and healthy ways of adding fat to your body. And this leads us to our next point…

Eat Healthy Foods

This seems like a no-brainer, but perhaps you should be making more diet changes than you realise. You should especially aim for foods rich in calcium, protein, folic acid and iron, including lean protein like chicken, fruits and vegetables (particularly citruses and dark green leafy vegetables like kale), whole grains, dairy and healthy sources of fat like nuts and seeds.

Steer away from fish considered 'high-mercury', including tuna - and do go easy on the caffeine if you typically consume a lot of coffee and tea; consuming caffeine in doses of 500 milligrams a day has been shown to decrease fertility in women. So definitely aim for decaf when you can.

Take Prenatal Vitamins

To better increase your odds of getting pregnant, fortify your body with prenatal vitamins designed exactly for that. This Seven Seas Trying for a Baby conception supplement contains 28 one-a-day tablets packed with vitamins and minerals essential for conception and early pregnancy. Containing essential folic acid, iron and vitamin D, these tablets help regulate hormonal activity, support fertility and reproduction and aid in the healthy development of your baby once conception is successful.
