Getting Pregnant Over 40, Top 10 TipsI totally forgot about this book which I remember seeing in a bookstore near my RE's office.

Of course this was years ago back when I was going through fertility treatments (before trying to get pregnant naturally). The book was called "I Got Pregnant, You Can Too" by Katie Boland. I actually never bought the book but I recall thumbing through it in the bookstore. What little I read of it struck a chord with me. In retrospect, I should have bought the book and left my reproductive endocrinologist. I just came across an article written by Katie Boland who is now part of the Mind/Body Institute in California. She discusses her "Top Ten Tips For Conception". Read more:

Here are a few:
1. Do make the sex as exciting as possible. Sperm counts rise with the level of excitement.
Cervical and uterine movements that accompany a woman’s orgasm assist sperm. The better
the sex, the better chance for conception.
2. Don’t waste energy fantasizing about the nursery décor. Remember that the baby's first
home is your body and prepare it as lovingly as you would a room in your home.
3. Don’t deliver yourself into doctors’ hands expecting them to get out their wands. Choose
your doctor meticulously and take 50% of the responsibility for your care.
4. Don't anticipate trouble. It can become self-fulfilling. The value of a positive mindset
cannot be overstated. Envision yourselves as parents and stay focused on that picture. It will
reassure and sustain you.
