  • Doctors consider it normal to take anything up to a year to get pregnant. On average it takes couples 6-8 months (and that includes those who are doing everything right) although there are some who take much less and others who take much longer. Are you tracking your cycle? Have you pinpointed your ovulation time? If not, you can learn how to do so at

    Good luck!

  • Try keeping track of your cycles. In the grand scheme of things 6 months is not really that long, It took us 5 with younger dd. The month I finally stopped worrying about it it happened.

  • You can get an ovulation calendar to track your cycles and a test that uses your urine, or body temperature, to pinpoint ovulation.

  • It took me almost 11 months to get prego with my first. It will happen eventually... Just enjoy your time now... Babies are a lot of work... but, yes, they are certainly worth it. Enjoy your sleep while you wait. ; )
