Give it time, it's only been a couple of months, stressing definitely doesn't help

We TTC for 2 years, then started going to doctors for blood tests etc, during which time we'd kinda gave up. Went away on holiday, came back and got the results and were told we had virtually no chance of conceiving naturally .... turned out I was already pregnant!! Must've happened while we were on holiday and not actually trying or stressing about it

I'm now pregnant again with twins, mother nature has a funny sense of humour! We weren't even trying

Just relax, and enjoy your relationship with your husband without putting too much added pressure on of trying to fall pregnant so quickly

I just removed my IUD 2 months ago...but love my husband very much and now we want to have a thinking about my last period , my ovulation days , when im mostly fertile, if i became pregnant afrter trying, taking a pregnancy test after a week...thinking if i will missed my period, etc. I try not to think about it but i think the fact of me wanting to be pregnant is stressing me out and even making me think wether or not i can have more kids.

Yes, stress can make it difficult to conceive. I know it is not easy, but try not to think about it and just enjoy trying. I know of people who tried and stressed over it for two years, then just let the thought go, but didn't use protection and they were pregnant within a couple of months.
