10 Interesting Facts and Statistics on Baby-MakingI am a real stickler for good, interesting facts and statistics. I like to know random bits of information about things that I can relate to and when it comes to fertility and pregnancy, there are so many cool facts.

Have you ever wondered what the most common day a couple has sex on? What about the least common day or the chances you have each month of getting pregnant? All those facts and statistics are things that I love to know and so I’ve done a little bit of research and found that information out for your, and my own, enjoyment.
