    Default advice?

    I had a hard time conceiving my DS. so much so I gave up 'trying' and about 8 months later pregnancy came as a surprise to me ( a grand total of unprotected sex for 1 year and three months). I want to try again, but I'm afraid of 'psyching' myself out and not conceiving otherwise known as 'trying and failing' was my one pregnancy so far a fluke and I'll never be able to have another child?.

    so I got to wondering, since it's obvious that I can conceive children (despite what my paranoia might say) with my husband has anyone else run into the problem of it just not happening for no apparent reason

    and... does anyone have any tips or advice for ttc? is there an herb that increases fertility, something that I can do on my own without having to visit a doctor about it just yet?

    Definitly read the book, then I would suggest seeking out a naturopathic Dr first. It took us about a year, and I was working with a naturopath for about 5 of those months.

    I'd just relax and try.

    I'm guessing with all the trials of your first you used temping and OPKs and such?

    Those always help so you can catch the egg right away. You can even chart it all free at fertilityfriend. Also I was reading the Sperm meets Egg plan, its simple, but pretty good results.

    You never know, it may have taken over a year for the first, but only a month for the second. Good luck.

    We used the suggestions on TCOYF...and got pregnant almost right away. I think knowing what was going on with my body helped me feel more in control of getting pg.

    i have a friend who had a really difficult time getting pregnant the first time (4 years, i think?). they were told they probably wouldn't have another since it was so hard for them to get pregnant the first time.....and then they were pregnant very quickly! you just never know....

    good luck to you. i really hope it happens more easily for you this time around!
