For one July day during the six months between my engagement and marriage, I thought I was pregnant. My intended and I were driving from New York to Washington DC and I figured out my period was about five seconds late. I was electrified. My life was changing before my very eyes. Would I have to get a new dress? I couldn’t believe it, which was good because the very next day I got my period. Five years later, I had my kids. Along the way, I learned a lot about how to get pregnant, and not just the old fashioned way. For those who are getting ready to make baby number one, two or whichever, Babble has put together a special edition on making your own miracle. Because when you’re trying to conceive (and when you’re calling it that), it’s good to have some guidance. Wherever you are in the process, whether you’re over 40 or not, you’ll find something useful in this guide. Good luck!
