I know of someone who tried for around 18 months with her first and 10 months with her second. Not to say you will take that long lol. I hope you don't take that long. I can't imagine how that would feel.

Melanie, yes I do have two kids. I was lucky I guess. Within the first month I became pregnant.

Yeah can take test on day of missed period but if negative and u think u might be try again in few days - though those tests r expensive. I am weird in that I KNOW when I am pregnant one or two days after - weird I know. But felt it for both kids and both miscarriages. Good luck!

I know it can be frustrating. Some take even longer than 6 months to conceive.

If you were suppose to get your period on Feb. 9th than you could be able to find out now. For some women their HCG levels are not high enough at this point, so you may want to wait. It may be too early to feel any differently. With my pregnancies, I didn't feel any differently until around 7-8 weeks in. Even at that point, the only symptom I had was I was eating more, but that is also a pre-menstrual symptom. Then the nausea started.

Good luck!

I start premorose oil the first day of my period until Ovulation day, than you stop until you get the next periods. Practicly you take the premorose oil 20 days. It will help to increase the cervical mocus and help sperm to travell easyer to the egg. than after Ovulation I continued with Flax Oil. Fish oil plus prenatal I took it during the day or whatever you feel. Meditation helps. Try to relax close your eyes and picture yourself with a baby. if you have any questions ples don't hesitate.

No I wasn't doing the temp. I wanted but I found it boring. I did Ovulation Tests though...for months..listen to that now...In december 2010 I had left just two sticks. I tested earlyer, so practicly I wasted them for no reason. I ovulate usually around day 18 to 20..SInce was Christmas time and honestly I was so tired trying, I thought: Why not enjoying the holidays and drink and start all fresh in January. I didn't boughted an ovulation test neither had sex since my husbund was so busy. I had sex One time at the day that I suppose to ovulate and than BAM...that was it. No periods in January.Lots of people say relax enjoy don't think..It is easy to say. I will recommend you to bye Ovulation test. I was shocked when I tryed the first time. I was having sex in wrrong days.
Lots of fish oil /premerose oil/ royal gelly/meditation/
you will become pregnant son.
good luck

Melanie, try to take primorose oil. You have to start at the first day of your period until you'll ovulate than stop until you get next periods. I noticed changes in my cervical mocus the first month. The second month I got pergnant and don't forget I tryed for 11 months. I don't know if was meant to be for me that monthor premorse oil helped. You're not loosing anything anyway. I took 2 pills morning,lunch and dinner.
good luck..YOU WILL GET PREGNANT ..TRUST ME..KEEP YOUR FAITH UP.

Yeah, I tried the temp thing but, it really didn't seem to make any difference, my temperature is never consistent anyhow.

Hopefully today you'll get some answers then, good luck!

I actually didn't take extra folic acid, while trying to get pregnant, I eat really healthy but, I probably should have.

I did see the doctor about trying to get pregnant since I was 33, I'm now 34. They really don't do anything until you've been trying for year though. Or at 6 months if you're 35.

As far as my miscarriage though, I have a unicornuate uterus. Which means my left and right side of my uterus didn't fuse together when I was in my mother's womb. Only the right side of my uterus is capable of carrying a child, the left side is very small and not connected to my cervix. Unfortunately, I did become pregnant in the left side so it was unable to carry the baby. When I miscarried and they discovered that the baby was in the left side, I had surgery to completely remove that side. So, that shouldn't happen again and hopefully I have no problems with miscarriage again. :)

Hey Dana thanks for the adivce i feel better that im not the only one but for your 2nd when you were trying for so long did you take anything or get a check up with the doctor or were you just taking folic acid only

I would just take the folic acid and then move onto prenatals when you are actually pregnant.

Melanie I understand that you are getting anxious but at least you know that there is nothing physically wrong with either you or your partner as you have a child together already. Try and relax.

Now for the nitty gritty bit. I was trying for 4 months and getting really fed up so I tried a new technique. As soon as your period finishes have sex every 2-3 days until day 20. When you have sex or immediately after place a pillow under your butt tilting your pelvis backwards giving the sperm the best chance of penatrating your cervix. This method really does work as i was pregnant that month. I was advised to do this by my OBGYN. Tried and tested!

Melanie, I'm sorry, I know how frustrating it can be trying to get pregnant. Each month comes and your period starts and it just sucks. With my first son, it took one month, with our second it took almost a year. Unfortunately, I miscarried at 10 wks. We've now been trying for 6, almost 7 months.
So, keep your head up, keep trying and try to relax while doing so.

well i did start my period today feeling a little down about it once again I take it at least i started cause when i was late for 4 days i was getting menstral symptons and it was frustrating me if its going to come lets get it over with and mu husband had mentioned today at least you know where you stand im going to make an appt with the doctor caus ewhen i had spoken with him back in oct 2010 i had told him we are trying and all the other stuff and he had done blood work and urines and everything was fine he had also said he was not worried cause it's only been a couple of months now and just to relax and enjoy but he also mentioned that he would 'nt let it go so far i just need to learn to not get discouraged when my period does come there always another month to try its too bad i did not try earlier but at that time we were renting in a basement and it just was not a good time to have another especially in a small place now we had bought a house things are alot better 1 empty room hoping to fill in soon ... I am taking prenatal vitamins as af today and folic acid as well which i have been taking for awhile now .........

hello Melanie,\if you have regular period and you're trying, the chances are that you may be pregnant. Is a good sign that you had some kind of cramps and no period.

\i tryed for 11 months. \here I am 41 years old and almost 3 months.

good luck to you..
ps: you can take the test. Use a good one.

Wow, I cant' believe you haven't been taking test yet. I'm a consent tester. As soon as I hit 5 days prior too my period and can test with a First Response I do. Just take a test. If it's neg and you still don't get a period 7 days after test again, however if you get a positive you now have something too look forward too. Best of luck, trying and waiting is soo hard.
