We have six kids, and we got pregnant with them the very first time we tried..and we only "tried" for three of them. The others just came, but looking back at calendars and such we could still see it was the first time. Now we are wanting to get pregnant with our last and final baby, and for some reason we can't get pregnant. We are still young 33 and I'm 31. But we have been trying since October. Any suggestions?

I have heard this can be quite commen,Did you have a c-section at all? you may have gotten a blocked tube or something .I can't get pregnant on my own even though they say i am fine i have been with my hubby for over 12 yrs and not once has it worked for us tried everything in the end had ivf.Got two beautiful children and trying for a 3rd.I read about this problem on the forum all the time .Get a cheakup and talk to your doctor about clomid its cheaper than ivf but does have some side effects it worked for a friend of mine.
Dont leave it too long as it could be something really simple and you are getting streesed for no reason.good luck

My hubby and I tried for about 14months, went on a holiday for our 1st yr wedding anniversary, and the next month we found out we were pregnant! We couldnt believe it. We think it was stress built up from work and life in general and being able to relax and get out of the house helped us we think :)

stop trying the stress alone from trying sometimes makes it hard to concieve also talk to your doctor it could be a medical problem such as your hormone level could be to low

I would go to the doctor. You never know if you might have developed a medical problem. I've only had one baby but we got pregnant with him the first time too. Then when we started trying for our second I found out that I have PCOS. It's extremely common, 1 in 10 women have it. I feel like it happened over night but I think I developed it several months ago. but it goes to show that our bodies can change.

Have you been under more stress recently? It took us almost 2 years to fall pregnant with our first & doctors couldn't work out why because all the tests came back normal. In the end, I decided I was getting too stressed at work, so I took 5 weeks holiday & cut back my hours. In that 5 weeks I fell pregnant with my first daughter. The other suggestion is not to think about it, because every time we stopped "trying" & just had fun, we seemed to fall pregnant easier. My third baby is due in July. Good Luck!
