It may sound very specific – but there’s a reason this date is dubbed ‘national baby-making day’.
IT’S good news for those trying for a baby, as scientists reckon they know how you can get pregnant before the end of 2017.
A new report has pinpointed the exact time and date you need to have sex, if you’re hoping to get up the duff.
The study, by Channel Mums, found that nearly a quarter of parents (23%) want to conceive over the Christmas period, with 17 per cent having done so in previous years, and six per cent planning to do so again this year.
More British babies are born on September 26 than any other day of the year.
This date is exactly 38 weeks after January 2 – earning this winter date the nickname ‘national baby-making day’.
So why January 2? Well, after all the festive fun of Christmas and frivolities of New Year’s Eve, couples are thought to favour snuggles and an evening in on this particular day.
Of those who hit the sheets on January 2, 71 per cent of couples had sex at around 10.36pm.
And what extreme measures have people been going to to conceive over the festive period?
Four in ten people polled said they were using their time off to have sex every single day, while 16 per cent were getting frisky multiple times a day.
While the rest of us piled on the Christmas pounds, 16 per cent of those polled were dieting to try and increase their chances of conceiving, and 30 per cent exercising more.
And one in five women were sticking to the old wives’ tale of holding their legs up in the air after sex.
There’s no proof in that method, but chances are a few British babies will be conceived at 10.36pm on January 2. So it’s probably worth a shot.
