Where did you conceive

Where Did You Conceive?

Leave it to the randy Brits to take their baby-making skills outside of the bedroom. A study conducted by The Baby Show, a trade show for pregnant and new moms, found that mom and pop's bedroom may not be quite the hotbed of sexual activity that many think it is.

According to the survey, 46 percent of British babies that will be born this year were conceived outside of the bedroom, and mum and dad most likely got busy on a Saturday evening once the sun had set, sometime between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Though many mamas can't pinpoint exactly when they conceived, the 1,000 UK residents who took part in the study seem to have great memories!

The study got me thinking. Do you know exactly when and where you conceived?

Thanks, kikidawn! It was a scary early pregnancy with a miscarriage scare, so I was reluctant to get too excited for awhile. But all is well now and I'm 25 weeks with what they tell me is a girl (or so I hope since I'm painting pink soon)! We have been very blessed with our IVF successes.

My little girl was conceived by guided ultrasound which means I actually watched the sperm injected into the uterus right beside the egg. I even have video of the conception.

Both my son and unborn daughter were conceived a petri dish in a lab a county away from my house in April 2007. My son was born in 2008 and this unborn baby was frozen and just thawed this past August. :)

In Costa Rica while on vacation. As a result, hubs and I refer to our little girl (who's still inutero and unnamed) as Tica, which means native Costa Rican.

I've yet to conceive, thankfully (I'm still a college student!), but I know where I was conceived ... on my parent's last vacation to Disneyworld before they had children! ;] I unfortunately found that out before MY first visit to Disneyworld a few weeks ago .. my mom made a crack about Goofy being my real father. Ugh.

I don't know exactly for sure, but I'm pretty sure it was in our bedroom. The only interesting part of our son's conception is that it happened in Korea 3 weeks before we were about to leave for the US again! He's my little Korean souvenir!
