You and the hubs have decided to take the plunge and start a family. Just one roll in the hay and boom ― a bun will be in the oven, or so you think. But after several attempts, you realise that perhaps baby making is not that straightforward after all.  


Did you know that every month a woman only has a 20 per cent chance of conceiving? Plus, the window for conception is a tight 48 hours. Yes, you heard that right. Your man’s sperm has just two days to fertilise your egg after it’s released by your body.


Ovulation happens like clockwork ― 14 days before your menses ― eventhough a woman’s menstrual cycle may vary, anything between 21 and 40 days. You can take tests to find out when you’re ovulating, but your body also gives out clear signals that it’s preparing to create a baby. All you have to do is read them right.


Scroll through the photo gallery to learn what these signs are. And if you’re experiencing a few, or all, of them right now, call the husband at once and get him to report to the bedroom, pronto!
