When is the best time for a woman to get pregnant

There is no greater joy for a woman than to give a life to another human being. But bringing another life to this wolrd is not that easy. There are a lot of things to consider. Woman should make sure that that she is ready to have a baby if she is planning to have one. The firs thing to know is to find out when is the best time to get pregnant. It is necessary to know the right time, because having a child in the womb is a very delicate process, a woman should be emotionally and physically ready so that she can give her best care to her baby.

If you and your partner were both ready to have a baby then you should try to gather all the important information that you needed. According to studies the best time to get pregnant is to know the period of your ovulation it is the most fertile time for every woman. In this time the mature ovum is being released from the follicules to the uterus, and this egg is ready to be fertilized, and for about 12 hours it will stay this way. Paying attention to your body is the best way to know when are you going to be fertile like spotting the signs of ovulation physically.The most common method of knowing the best time to get pregnant is to count the days. A woman should know when will be her next period, she has to count backward for 12 to 16 days. For those women who has a very regular or normal menstrual cycle the best day to get pregnant is the 14th day.

Aside from this the temperature of the body can also be a factor but it does not necessarily tell when is the best time to get pregnant. After a womans ovualtion her basal body temperature may increase to 1.6 from 0.5 degrees. She may not feel the change but it can be detected thorugh a basal thermometer, and two to three days after the rise of a woman body temperature is the best time to get pregnant, the shift in tempaerature is because of the increase in the production of the hormone called progesterone, since it is triggered by ovulation. If a woamn also feels discomfort or pain in the lower abdomen this is also an indication of getting pregnant, a small percentage of women are feeling this ovulatory activity that brings mild to moderate pains in the lower abdomen, this may last to a few hours in some cases.

Why can't you get pregnant?

Marriage is building a family. Family is the foundation of the society and as defined a group of people that includes a mother, father and children is called a nuclear family. A child is born because of the union of two opposite sex. It is a fact that one is trying to unite with the opposite sex to produce offspring, but it is not as easy at it is being said. A woman can be pregnant if the egg is fertilized by the sperm thus producing a new life.

In most cases this is not always the outcome. There are always those women who are not fertile enough to bear a child and there re also men who are not competent enough to make a baby. There are a lot of infertility causes that one can be suffering, thus one cannot be able to get pregnant. Ovulation and egg quality is one it includes irregular ovulation because of hormonal imbalance and the egg quality is poor, but problems like these are related to age most of the time. Blocked fallopian tube is also one example of infertility causes because if ones fallopian tube has been blocked then it is very impossible for ones egg to travel to the uterus and in sperms cannot get into ones egg. Drinking too much alcohol and smoking also contributes to infertility as well as obesity.

In a world where people are trying to blend with the industrialized world it is also very important to watch what one is consuming, study shows that the BPA known as bisphenol-A has been linked to serious health problems, such as birth defects and cancer, and is also suspected to be the cause of erectile dysfunction for men which is know as being impotent. This chemical can be found in plastic containers of food and bottled water.

Infertility causes in males is also affecting the capability of woman in conceiving a child, In most cases it is the males infertility that makes it impossible for a woman to get pregnant. One factor of male infertility is when an epididymis or the tube that carries the sperm from the testes or if the two tubes called vas deferens is blocked. Aside from that, poor sperm quality and low motility of sperm or deficiency in semen also contributes to infertility. Pregnant women also who takes common painkillers has the possibility of giving birth to a baby boy whose testicles may not properly descend because the productions of testosterone is not enough.

Infertility causes depressions to people who are planning to have a child, in some ways it may affect them emotionally and or physically, a broken marriage may also be a result of infertility. But one should not worry about these infertility causes because we are now living in a modern world and technology has evolved through the years and because of this there are a lot of treatment that one can get to treat infertility, but one should be willing to accept the condition first so that one can be emotionally ready before getting a professional treatment.

Just another day of my life.

Anxious, stressed out and tired!

I have been like this for the past few weeks, I have been so busy doing two jobs in one day and taking care of my family, this has been my routine every single day and it's taking its toll on me. I'm always short tempered and easily irritated.

I am not complaining though because I always have a choice and since I choose to do this so I think I can or maybe I, It is just, I am not used to having a very busy life that I find it hard to cope up with.

Balancing the act of being an employee forty hours a week and wok at home mom for twenty four hours a week as well as a mother and a wife twenty four seven is not easy. I must admit it is one tough act!

Baby Stuff: what is there to know

According to studies, there are roughly around 200,000 babies born daily in the whole world. This just shows how important and valuable babies and kids are. Wherever one may be, it is not possible to not see any kid.
Within a family, one can see how kids are loved and cared for by the adults; from food, hygiene, and of course things, from the littlest thing like drinking bottles to cribs, all these things are carefully hand-picked by parents.

And as we all know, if we speak of baby or toddler stuff, one would normally think of colors. Kids love colors, especially brighter ones. But parents need to realize that there are a couple of things that they need to realize other than buying those baby things because it is colorful. For one, parents need to pay extra attention on the quality. Let’s say you are a parent and looking for a nap mat, it is important to examine the mat thoroughly. The fabric and the material used should be inspected; there are fabrics that may cause rashes on your baby’s skin.
One may find shopping for baby stuff as a really fun and interesting thing to do. Most adult stuff has a version for babies, even bags. There is a so called toddler backpack, which is appropriate for your toddlers. These bags usually have cartoon characters as its design and are colorful.

But sometimes what give parents the headache is the lack of knowing where to find the baby things they and their kids need. It is always great to know which store to go to, especially when you know that this store sells quality products. To start off on your search for a great store to purchase the baby things you need, you may want to check out some online stores which are really accessible with today’s technology; stores like Stephen Joseph, and a lot more.

Mom can I have some time with you?

I have been so busy finding ways to get a second job to earn more and save for the future of my child. One day an opportunity came and I have to grabbed it, the reason? to earn more, so I started this job ( by the way this is a part time job at home, because I have a full time day job.) and for weeks my routine has always been the same, I have to wake up early so that I won't be late for my day job, then after that I have to rush home to prepare dinner for my husband and my daughter, then sit again in front of the computer this time for my part time job. See? it has always been my routine for almost a month and a half now.

It has always been this way every single day since I have this job at home, until I realized that, because of my eagerness to earn more I have taken for granted that I have a 6 year old daughter who in those days are always waiting for me, when to be home after my day job. I have noticed that during those days that I have been working at home she is always telling me when will I be done with my job.

It broke my heart seeing my daughter begging for a chance to have some time with me. I guess she missed the days that we we were singing and dancing together every night after I went home from my day job. I have been contemplating on what to do, I don't want to lose my part time job, the money I earned from it is a big help for us financially, especially now that school days is coming, but I also want to have some quality time with my daughter, I have been noticing these past few days that she is always doing something just to get my attention.

I love my child and I want to be with her, in her every day journey through life, I know I can do this, maybe it is just a matter of organizing the things that needs to done.

Help me God!

Lighting a Home

Your abode is your kingdom; it is that one place where you can be sure that you are the master. Thus it is understandable that one would want only the best for his or her home. One thing, others may have not realized yet is that lighting is really important when it comes to homes; it could determine the mood or even the personality of the people living in it.
But today, one cannot deny that choosing the best modern lighting fixtures may not be as easy as one may think. It is very important to find a store that has everything in terms of home lighting – from ceiling lighting, to lamps to wall and outdoor lighting. It is also important that the store have a lot of choices in terms of modern ceiling fixtures’ designs, quality, and sizes.
As mentioned, one’s preference in their home lighting may determine what type of person may live in a house. For example, if one chooses to purchase and use a drum shade chandelier, another person may assume that the homeowner may like to live simply. One can also say that the homeowner is practical, considering that this type of modern chandelier can be used both indoors and out.

But then again, one question boggles your mind, how do we know where to buy? Well, doing research or canvassing is very important, purchasing any item no matter what it is, should not be done impulsively. With this modern day technology the best thing one could do is research online to start with. Many businesses already have their sites up and running, making consumers gain an easy access to their products. It is always ideal to check on the company’s background, read reviews about them, in that way you will never regret doing business with them. Doing such can put a big smile on your face every time you take a look at your lighting.
