You guys! It’s been more than a year since I recorded a podcast. In fact, if you conceived a child on the date of my last podcast, that child would be sitting up and eating solid food by now. Which might seem like a random piece of trivia but it really isn’t, because today’s podcast is all about conceiving. I recently spoke with sexologist, author and TV personality Dr. Jess O’Reilly about just that – and how to keep things interesting in the bedroom while you’re doing it. This subject hits home for me especially because I had a harder time conceiving my second child due to a progesterone deficiency.
Luckily there was an easy fix for me and my son Jacob is now six and a half. All the same, I think this is something that anyone can relate to. Whether you’ve had a hard time conceiving, and whether you’re thinking of having your first child or your fifth, we can all use tips. In fact, tips are a good thing even if we’re not trying to conceive, but I found that when you’re trying to map your fertility and maximize your chances, the sense of adventure evaporates pretty quickly.
Dr. Jess had some great suggestions – in fact, I wish I’d spoken with her before I had my own children. From getting both partners involved, to tools that can maximize your chances of hearing the pitter patter of little feet, we had a great conversation.
If you’d like to spice things up, if you’re trying to get pregnant (or planning on it soon), or if you would just like to listen to a great conversation, you’ll want to check out my podcast with Dr. Jess. But a word to the wise – while we kept things clean, if you have little ones around and you’re not ready to answer a bunch of questions about the birds and the bees, you may want to save this one for when you’re alone. Or listen with your headphones, which is what I always do.
