Signs that your body is getting ready for pregnancy

Irregular periods can make getting pregnant challenging, and make it hard to track your peak time for ovulating, which is 14 days before the first day of your next period.
Week one of pregnancy begins on the first day of your last menstrual period, even though you haven't actually conceived yet. Reproducing content presented on this site in any form is prohibited without written permission. But as you near ovulation, your body produces more estrogen, causing your cervical mucus to become stretchy and clear, like egg whites.

That sensitive time of the month when your breasts and nipples become tender is due to a rush of hormones entering your body right before and after you ovulate. A lower BMI can lead to hormonal imbalances that can affect ovulation, making conception take four times as long.
Women in this fertile phase are more likely to be attracted to male pheromone androstenone, which contributes to that strong BO smell. FYI: Your cervix changes too and will become higher, softer and more open during ovulation.

So if your BMI falls out of that range, talk to your doctor about a healthy way to gain or lose the weight and get your fertility back on track.
