    I couldn't find any info on the internet so I wanted to see if anyone had any input. I was wondering if there is a certain time of a women's cycle that you can create the smartest/healthiest child. I know once you ovulate the sperm can fertilize the egg. Although the egg is also slowly dyeing and there is only a certain amount of time for the egg to be fertilized.
    From what a read you can still get pregnant up to 48 hours or so after you the time of ovulation until the egg is not viable. So if you got pregnant when the egg was in not the of best shape (say 48 hours after ovulation) would you be creating a less healthy/smart baby then you would if the sperm fertilized the egg from the very beginning of ovulation?

    anyone have any websites with info?? or any input?

    I really dont think when you catch the egg is any factor in how smart your baby is, i dont think it really factors how healthy your baby will be either.

    To me I don't think it matters when you conceive to how healthy or smart a baby will be
    It all depends on how you bring up the baby, if you feed it crap and plonk it in front of telly, it will be an unhealthy not so smart child/baby

    If you stimulate and encourage a baby from an early age then the more advanced/smart it could be.

    The healthy part also comes with how you encourage your child with food and excersise etc...

    I have to agree with Jo. Personally I think it is about Nurture.

    don't know about the ovulation and fertilisation bits but I do know that if you take omega 3 during pregnancy that the child has a slightly longer attention span (can't remember where I read the study) but it has to be fish body oils not fish liver oils otherwise its not safe

    I agree with the nurture part, also it might be down to genes but I dont think the time of ovulation could effect the intelligence of a child.

    if you eat helathily yourself whilst ttc and throughout your pregnancy this will also help produce a helthy baby.
