Hey, guys. I asked you to ask ME questions that you’ve been dying to know but were too lazy to look up. Well, I’ve done the legwork for you by the magic of internet sources. Well, you know, if it’s on the internet then it must be true.

 

10. Why does it take so long to find out if you’re pregnant?

The answer comes from this site: http://www.babycentre.co.uk/a1813/how-long-will-it-take-to-get-pregnant#ixzz36Je5jHVy which probably still doesn’t help. According to this, it can take a stupidly long time and all these factors contribute to it. How is it so easy for those teen moms? It’s probably ‘cause their snatches are fresh out of the gate. If you’re older, it seems to be more difficult. Anyways, enjoy!

Whatever your circumstances, it’s advisable to see your GP for a pre-pregnancy check-up.

Make sure that you and your partner are in tip-top baby-making condition (Click here:

to find out what the heck that means).

 

But having regular, unprotected sex is the key. Once a week may not be often enough, while every day is too frequent, as daily sex can reduce the quality of sperm. Instead, aim to make love every two or three days .

You may have heard that it helps to pinpoint exactly when you are ovulating and to have sex then. There is, of course, some truth in this technique. Your chances of getting pregnant are much higher on the days in your menstrual cycle when you’re most fertile.

However, fertility experts advise against using complicated techniques to detect ovulation and then timing your sex life to specific days each cycle. It can make trying for a baby more stressful than it needs to be. And your chances of conceiving naturally won’t be any higher than if you had sex every two or three days.

Sometimes your work or lifestyle makes regular sex tricky. There are some simpler techniques you could try that won’t take over your life. For example, you could use ovulation predictor kits or, simpler still, get to know some of the more obvious signs that you are fertile, such as increased cervical mucus (sounds lovely). You can then try to ensure that you have sex at least once or twice when you’re most fertile.

In general, a more relaxed approach is recommended by fertility experts. Having unprotected sex every few days means that there will always be a supply of sperm in the right place whenever you ovulate. Simply taking it easy and enjoying your love life may be the best way to boost your chances.

5. Why is there no E when grading?

If you get an E, you might think it stands for “Excellent,” so teachers wanted to make sure you were aware that you’re really an idiot!

4. What’s your favorite part of the day?

 

I liked this one ‘cause it was personal and it made me think. I would say my favorite part of the day is dinner. Everyone’s lives are so hectic and we don’t get to see each other throughout the day, but when everyone is around the dinner table talking about what went on that day and being together is my favorite. I suspect when kids are in the picture, and I ask what went on today and they say “nothing,” will still be my favorite time.

 

3. Why do most healthy foods not fill you up?
