Tis the Season to Conceive?

Tis the Season to Conceive?

When you think about a windstorm, ice storm or other natural disaster that could befall a community, you probably don't think about pregnancy as a casualty. But that's precisely what happens when the power goes out and people have less ways to occupy their time.

In Louisville, Kentucky, they're attributing a windstorm back in September for the recent increase in Ob/Gyn visits. And, according to demographer, Michael Price, "there have been several documented increases in conceptions in the last decade in large populations such as New York following major power failures."

When the weather outside is frightful and the fire is so delightful it's as good a reason as any to spend some time getting cozy with a loved one. Just make sure you're aware of what an extended power outage could lead to.

Do you know of anyone conceived during a storm or power outage?

After 12 Years of married, My Husband Changed His Mind!! We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone else. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr.Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again. Dr.Unity is the best online spell caster that is powerful and genuine.

Haha, that does make sense! Another reason that people might be more prone to get it on during awful weather is that it puts your body into a state of stress (the whole flight-or-fight action). I read somewhere that when we're stressed, we feel threatened, and when we feel threatened, our biological urge is to defend our genes, and one of the best ways to defend our genes is to procreate. It's totally subconscious. Not to open up another can of worms, but this theory helps explain why lower-economic people tend to have many more children than those of higher economic status.
