Ovulation, ovulation, ovulation. It鈥檚 on your mind all of the time. You鈥檙e in baby-making mode and you鈥檙e thinking about it 24/7. With all the brainpower going toward it, you expected that you鈥檇 be pregnant already. But you鈥檙e not, and there鈥檚 no need to stress just yet. Yeah, yeah 鈥 easier said than done. What you need right now is a baby-making break, at least from thinking about it. Check out these baby-free ideas for getting your mind off of pregnancy!

Happy young couple

1. Layer on the lingerie. Sex has become nothing more than a mechanical act that鈥檚 used to get you a baby. Forget about timing, positions or whatever else you鈥檙e doing to up your chances of conception and have sex for fun! Yep, that鈥檚 right 鈥 fun. Go shopping for some new lingerie (picking pieces that are totally racy and way out of your typical undergarment arena) and spend some true quality time with your guy.

2. Make a baby-making jar. Designate one day a week a conception-free zone. Both you and your future baby-daddy are prohibited from talking about anything that has to do with ovulation times, cervical mucus, basal body temperature, sperm count, fallopian tubes or your uterus. If either one of you talks about fertility, conception or any part of making a baby, the offender has to put a dollar in the jar. One of two things will happen: 1. You鈥檒l have one day free from worrying about your fertility, or 2. You鈥檒l sock away so much money that the two of you can take each other out for a fancy dinner that makes you forget all about baby-making.

3. Go back to school. You can鈥檛 think about sperm motility if you鈥檙e learning how to use HTML. When you finally do get pregnant and become a mommy, you won鈥檛 have much time to do something that鈥檚 purely for you. Pick something that you鈥檝e always wanted to learn and look for a class to take at your local community college or community center. One note on this idea 鈥 there is absolutely, positively no taking a class that has anything to do with pregnancy, having a baby, caring for a baby, child development, parenting, early childhood education or another kid-centered subject.

4. Dance, dance, dance. Let loose and dance like nobody鈥檚 watching. While getting your glam on and heading out to the nearest club is certainly an option, you can still stay in your sweatpants and get down at home. Turn down the lights, turn up the music and dance until you forget that you鈥檙e trying to get pregnant.

5. Spend time with singles. Your single, childless friends could probably care less about conception. If anything, they鈥檙e on the opposite end of the spectrum 鈥 focusing all of their efforts on trying not to get pregnant. Go for a drink, get tickets to a concert or just hang at home. Yes, your 鈥淚鈥檓 totally going solo鈥 friend may politely ask about your preggo plans. But she鈥檒l also clam up when you roll your eyes and bring up her guy du jour. So, what鈥檚 on the agenda for the rest of the night? It could be anything 鈥 anything that doesn鈥檛 involve babies.
