How to Get Pregnant Quickly 101



I remember when my husband and I decided to start trying for our first baby. I was over the mood excited and I couldn’t wait to see those double lines appear on that pregnancy test. If you know me by now, I am the most impatient person on the planet. I immediately started researching how I could conceive quickly. I looked at every fertility site I could get my hands on and soaked in all the information I could get.

It took 5 months of trying before I finally conceived my first daughter. The second time around I was much more educated on fertility and ended up conceiving the very first month of trying. I’d like to think that these methods helped with this result, but I’m sure there was some luck involved.

Please keep in mind that this will not work for everyone trying to conceive. These methods can boost your chances of getting pregnant, but not guarantee it.

The Art of Potty Training – Tips and Tricks


If you have a toddler who is more than capable of using the potty, but too stubborn to comply, then you have come to the right place. Potty training is as much of a blessing at it is a curse. Having a hard headed toddler sure does make potty training a super ultra-hard CHORE. She knows what she has to do, she gets the concept, but she just would not go because I was the one telling her to do it.

10 Ways Relationships Change When You Become Parents


Relationships tend to suffer once children come along and my husband and I are not immune from that statement. Our relationship changed drastically after we became parents and I was nowhere near prepared for it. Why did the man I was so deeply in love with turn into someone I was always angry at?

It just took some work and a mutual desire to grow together during this new chapter of our lives.

So onto the meat and potatoes, here are some ways relationships change after you become parents. Hopefully it can somewhat prepare you for what is to come.
