Before you get excited, no I’m not writing this post because I’m trying to get pregnant again but regularly readers of my blog will know that we’re done at one child. But a very close friend of mine is trying for the first time, and while discussing pregnancy tips, it made me remember some of the ridiculous advice that crossed my path when we were trying to get pregnant….some of which I even did…eek! So I thought it would be fun to share some of the funny advice some of the parent blogging community had either received or heard in passing because hey! we’ll try anything to get pregnant won’t we?!
Turn your world upside down
Do a headstand after having sex! I was told this by so many people and at one point I remember trying it!! – Five Little Doves
Power up your sperm
Get your partner to take zinc for optimum sperm health! – My Family Fever
Make it a morning glory
Have sex in the morning as that’s when sperm is at its most active – apparently!! – Twinderelmo
Be still as a statue
Don’t love after, stay as still as you can and keep a towel between your legs so nothing comes out. – The Mum Diaries
Have a cold splash
My friend was told by showering his balls in cold water it’d help them conceive..it worked allegedly! – Mum Muddling Through
My mother told us that my husband should only drink black coffee, wear loose boxer shorts, and to only have sex on a full moon if we wanted a boy. – Isand Living 365
Well I don’t know about you but some of these definitely sound like old wives tales to me but others….well….anything’s worth a try right? Er…..or is it? What strange advice did you receive or hear for getting pregnant? Do share in a comment below.
Disclaimer: I have no idea whether any of the above works but sharing it purely for the entertainment value!
