When couples want to get pregnant, they consult with their doctor and follow the necessary protocol. It helps speed up the process and increases your chances of getting knocked up. The process of trying to get pregnant is fun *wink wink* but there is so much science involved that it might tire you out or stress you out to follow through with each and every tactic that is deemed suitable for you. However, there are some other fun ways to get pregnant (apart from the obvious). Or rather “jinxes” to getting pregnant. You might not be the superstitious kind, but we know we got your attention. They might be sheer coincidences, but when you’re trying to conceive, there’s no harm in giving it a shot, right? So, here are 7 ways to jinx yourself into getting pregnant:
1. New Fitness And Health Regime
Start a new health and fitness regime and when you finally get into the groove of your fitness, you gotta stop because you’re pregnant. One day you might be standing in front of the mirror and thinking to yourself that you can start to see those abs, and the next day you’re pregnant. Just when you fight the urge to binge on unhealthy food and sweet treats, your body starts to crave them because it’s growing another life.
2. Stock Up Your Liquid Poison
You and your partner have been trying to get pregnant for a while, and it’s taking longer than usual. So you decide to have one last cocktail party and stock up on the booze. You’re excited to drink your favorite gin and tonic, and your partner is looking forward to his glass(es) of whiskey. But before you know it, you have a hunch to take a pregnancy test, and when you do, it comes back positive. Yes, you’re pregnant! Sound familiar?
3. Get Into Those “Goal” Clothes
You work your butt off to fit into those clothes you’ve been telling yourself you’ll someday fit into. And guess what? You succeeded! But not for too long because you’re pregnant and soon won’t be able to fit into them. They will become tight soon enough, and you barely got the chance to flaunt them.
4. Clear Out The Baby Stuff
We bet this has happened to you more than once. You think you’re done with all the baby stuff and get rid of them. You clear out those baby clothes, cradles, prams, and toys only to be greeted with a fun surprise! Pregnancy! It’s time to start collecting all the essentials again. Sigh.
5. Beach, Mimosas And Dance
Plan a vacation, especially one that involves many cocktails and beach time, and it could just end up being the perfect pregnancy jinx. The pregnancy that you didn’t see coming might also become a part of your vacation plan, and before you know it, you will be sitting on the beach sipping on nothing but coconut water while flaunting a big belly!
6. Revamp Your Wardrobe
Another sad but true case of the pregnancy jinx is when you’ve just finished revamping your entire wardrobe. Stock up your wardrobe with your cute crop tops, skinny jeans, sensual lingerie, and favorite pair of heels only to realize that you’re pregnant and cannot fit into them for a long, long time.
7. Have A Night To Remember
How many of you can relate to this? After a night of heavy drinking and partying, most people deal with hangover and exhaustion, but some lucky (or unlucky) women find out they are pregnant. You experience stress and guilt, knowing that that’s how you started your nine magical months of pregnancy.
Of course, these are probably just coincidences, but when they start to happen a lot, and to many women, you cannot help but wonder if they are actually pregnancy jinxes. Hilarious but also quite strange. How many of these jinxes could you relate to? Comment below and let us know.
