The Realities of Stress
Many stressed-out couples are struggling to conceive even after trying for months and years. Did you know that being stressed out is one of the main reasons why women struggle to conceive? Stress can affect the body and too much of negativity can result in the ovaries shutting down and failing to ovulate. When you are stressed out, it will not just affect you, but your spouse too. Both of you will less likely to be in the mood for sex when stressed.
Hence, a short weekend gateway could be a great solution for you to conceive in a blissful environment far away from the madding crowd. Discuss with your partner to take leave on Monday and you’ll have a long weekend to look forward to!
What To Consider Before You Book That Getaway
Different couples have a different expectations for a relaxing vacation. Some may want to spend some quiet time at a beach, get lost in a new place exploring the culture and arts or catching the sunrise at the top of a mountain. So, discuss with your partner where you should go. Remember, it is not necessary to go far and spend a lot of money. The most important thing is to make sure the environment you choose is conducive to help you relax. You could even consider booking a hotel room or bungalow in the countryside close to your home, it’s really your choice.
Make sure that the hotel you choose offers enough comfort and privacy that will not get in the way of your conception efforts. A hotel room with paper thin walls or a squeaky bed might make you feel self-conscious about having sex while you are there.
How to make the most of it
Conceptionmoons should be well-prepared and planned to ensure that both of you are prepared physically and mentally. It will be such a waste if your partner doesn’t put any effort into it or worse, add more stress by not being on-board with your plans and whining about being away from work too long. It is not easy to get a long weekend off together, so make sure you make the most of it. Here are some tips to help you get the best conceptionmoon ever:
Leave Your Stress Behind
The vacation is to help you conceive so don’t bring over your stress together in the trip. The very least you can do is leave the email, voicemail, laptop or smartphone behind. You can get your work done once you get back. Now all you need to do is to completely focus on your partner. Relax, eat some good food, spend some alone time together and enjoy each other’s company in and out of bed.
To avoid you from constantly checking the situation at your home, it is best for you to make sure that everything at home is taken care of before you go. If you have other kids, it is best to not bring them with you as you’ll need some one-on-one time with your partner. Make sure they are staying with a trusted relative. Leave them with a babysitter or ask help from your parents. This is to ensure that you won’t be stressed and worried about them during your vacation.
Pack Only The Essentials
One can be overexcited and over-prepared. Packing too much will weigh you down and giving you more problems. Believe us, you will regret once you reach the hotel and unpack your massive luggage. You will notice that there are a lot of unnecessary stuff that you don’t need for the conceptionmoon. Here’s a quick packing checklist that you need when it comes to packing luggage – first, you must have your airline tickets, passport, visas and driver’s license. It is best to bring over credit cards as a backup. Don’t forget to confirm your reservations – hotels, restaurants, transportation and events. Remember, you still need to keep the phone numbers of your babysitter, parents and family that will come handy in case of emergencies.
Track Your Menstrual Cycle
Make sure that you get plenty of sleep during your vacation. When you are well rested, your body will be healthier and better able to conceive. Be prepared and bring all the things that you need to help you conceive. Don’t forget to trace down your estimated ovulation period before you book your conceptionmoon.
Pick a date when you are likely to be ovulating to increase the chance of conceiving. Pay attention to your cervical mucus so that you will know when you are ovulating. This to help you to predict your ovulation week and plan ahead so that you won’t miss the chance to conceive during the vacation. If you need more help, it is best to bring over your sex guidebook.
