My hubby and I have been TTC #2 for over a year and a half. We tried tracking various things, didn't work. We tried just "winging" it, that didn't work either. My doctor has done the HcG test, and tested a few other things, but nothing popped up as being red-flag-worthy as far as getting pregnant.

I'm curious. For others who have had a lot of trouble getting pregnant, what did you do/not do to increase your chances? At what point do you say "maybe something's wrong"?

We have been ttc # 2 for over 2 years now. We got pregnant with our DS right away and got pregnant right away when we first started trying for # 2 (but had a m/c).

We did testing with my OB after about a year of trying...and then when we realized an OB wasn't really going to be of much help, we started going to an RE. They did more testing and nothing has popped up for us either. They are calling it "unexplained infertility".

Currently we are doing Letrozole and Ovidrel and will be doing an IUI with the RE. (We've done 5 IUIs already...we did get pregnant that way once, but lost that baby as well).

I know exactly how you feel me and my hubby have done everything to try to increase our chances. Opks, bbt, exercise, eating better. As of late it made me think something is wrong which is why I made an appoinment with the fertility specialist. ( I am extremly nuervous about that.) We have been ttc since Dec 2010. Good luck and lots of baby dust to you.

~~~~~~Trying to concieve #1 since Dec 2010~~~~~~~

Keeping the faith and in God's time we will have a little blessing .

my husband and i have been trying for a while now and I am just so ready for this to happen. This month is the first time, I have been paying attention to my body and we have been putting in overtime on the sex. I have had him stay in me for over ten minutes after he has finished and stay propped up for about 30 minutes to an hour. So, in a couple of weeks we should know something. I've had two miscarriages before and countless disappointments in pg test. I hope this time is different. Keep the faith just as we are.

It took my hubby and I just over a year and a half to conceive our DS.
We would try and have sex as much as possible during the week that I suspected I was ovulating but really at that point we stopped stressing over it (I know seems IMPOSSIBLE!) I found that the minute we stopped stressing and concentrating on supporting one another it just kind of happened.
I hope you all have your BFP's soon!!! I'll cross my fingers for all of you. I know it seems like it will never happen but if it's meant to be you'll have that little one in your arms before you know it! Try and stay positive.
Thank you tasha_mae for my beautiful siggy!

Proud mama to 10 month old, Charlie <3 !

Hey Ladies...
DH and I have been TTC for 11 months...and in a few days it will be 12 months...
It all seems so unreal to me...we are both healthy and have a desire to have a little baby of our own...but why is it not happening?
So Ladies...I think we all understand each other's pain...dissapointment when AF comes for a visit once a month...BUT maybe this is God's way to get us closer to HIM! I pray for every single one of you ladies...

Hey ladies.

I thought I would just pop in to tell you my story.

I was TTC#1 for 2 years.

Unexplained infertility because I Oed fine and the sperm was good.

I started charting and I mean hard core set a alarm by it and never really got a positive O date ever.. We charted and had sex every other day from CD5 until CD23 ish. We did that for a year and no luck. We gave up and our relationship kinda fell apart.

Anyway we had sex once because we wanted to see if the love was there, it was the first time in weeks and it was just the once the day my period stopped...

I was pregnant and I didnt even know it, I thought I was sick.

On the dating scan I was further along that i thought with going off a EDD calender... BECAUSE I Ouated on CD 3-5 just after my period.

It was a miracle. After my Daughter was born the relationship was never the same. We split up.

Me someone else and was TTC 2# for 4 years with nothing.. ended up my Leutal phase is not long enough. Relationship did not work as he wanted kids etc etc.

Fell in love with a wonderful man ( 1st anniversary of us becoming a couple tomorrow ) we both knew about the no kids as I can't and he said he can't as hes had years of trying with women only for them to leave and gepregnant with someone else.

Well we found out last month we were pregnant but sadly the miracle was taken away a week ago as I had a missed miscarriage at nearly 11 weeks.

So now we are on a TTC journey in the hope " it just happens " but my luck it won't.

My Daughter did not come into the world easy with TTC or labour and birth but hell ladies. It can happen. I am here to tell you it can.
