My husband and I have been trying to conceive our second child for 4 months now, and nothing is happenening. It has been very heartbreaking! I came into this very naively- I was only 2 months into marriage when a surprise pregnancy resulted in my son, who is now 2 1/2. So, I went into it thinking, if I got pregnant so easily, while using 2 kinds of birthcontrol at once, that this would be a piece of cake. It is probably my own fault for not researching this a little better, but I still don't understand what can make it so difficult this time! I hope I'm not sharing too many details, but I have done the things that friends have suggested- woman on top, or doggie style positions, to get an easier vantage point, I've tried putting it out of my head and not thinking about it much, (which is alot more difficult than it sounds), and after the last time, Even layed with my bottom propped up on pillows for 40 minutes afterwards to ensure I got the "maiximum value of the merchandise!"LOL I have had some physical problems in the past year, and was diagnosed with IC , a painful bladder condition, but was told by my doctor that the medicine should be safe during pregnancy, so I don't think that would cause it. I was also told, that it showed up in an ultrasound that my uterus had tilted after my son was born, which I was told , may cause some problems, but it wasn't definite. If anyone else has been through this or has any advice whatsoever, I am willing to try anything! I want a baby so bad!
