When a woman is ready for and thinks about getting pregnant, it's an overwhelming experience. From how she'll look in maternity wear to how her baby will look like, what kind of baby wear she'll buy to how her home will look when baby walker and crib will become a part, and baby essentials will be spread in every corner, a woman can think just about anything and everything, she can find herself on a beautiful journey of thoughts and imaginations. Women have their own way of handling these would-be-mom feelings and emotions.

A woman who wants to have a baby can find herself surrounded by a plethora of questions and doubts. Conceiving a baby can be quick and easy for some women whereas others may take longer. For couples who want to have a baby, knowing about how a woman's monthly menstrual cycle and periods work as well as about male and female sexual organs makes absolute sense.

This two-blog series will provide you with all the important details about getting pregnant. So first, let's take a look at when a woman is most likely to get pregnant.

When a woman is most likely to get pregnant?

The average menstrual cycle is 28 days, shorter or longer cycles are not a matter of concern.

The best time to conceive is at the most fertile point in a woman's menstrual cycle. The fertile window includes five days before ovulation and the day of ovulation.

The day of ovulation and/or two days before you ovulate are the days when a woman is at the highest probability of conception. When you have sex during those days, your dream of getting pregnant is most likely to turn into reality.

When we talk about ovulation, a woman's ovary releases a mature egg. That egg makes its way down the fallopian tube on its way to her uterus.

While on the route, the sperm has higher chances of meeting up with and fertilizing the egg. Sperm can live for about five days, and for a woman who wants to get pregnant, her goal is to have live sperm in her fallopian tubes when she ovulates.

How can a woman know that she's ovulating?

An easy way is to count your cycle days.

A woman can keep a calendar of her menstrual cycles, and even a mobile application is available to keep track. Each cycle starts on the first day of a woman's period, and it ends on the day before the beginning of her next period.

A woman should look for the midpoint of her cycle. A woman will ovulate around day 14 if she has a 28-day cycle.

A preconception checkup is important! 

It's about preparing yourself, of course, you don't want complications to take place, at least the ones that can be avoided. A preconception checkup is something that makes absolute sense before you start trying.  you can consult your doctor about prenatal vitamins that have folic acid, this can help to avoid possible birth defects such as spina bifida. 

Control and manage pre-existing medical conditions 

For women who have pre-existing medical conditions, these conditions need to be under control as becoming pregnant is not the only goal, the actual goal is becoming pregnant safely and healthy pregnancy! 

No, it's not done yet! 

There's a lot to mull over. 

To be continued...

So, now when you know what's the best time to give it a try, there's a lot more that you need to know about getting pregnant. We'll be back with a list of things you should do to achieve your goal of getting pregnant, stay tuned.
