8 Signs You're Entering (Or Already In) Your Fertile Period

I am now on to month #3 of trying to conceive babe #4 and we are entering that ‘fun’ part of the month. I have been charting for almost a year since removing my birth control and I know with the calendar date and other signs that I am about to enter the fertile period of the month. I will be spending a lot of extra time with my husband this next week in hopes that this month will be the one for us.

If you’re trying to conceive, watching for signs that you are your most fertile is something you should be looking for. It will help your chances in conceiving and can help pinpoint any issues that may be hindering your conception.
