  • The first time I think that it was evening primrose oil and vitamin e supplements. My CM wasn't up to par until I started taking them, then a month later I got pregnant.
    This time my CM was fine, as I had not been on BC since before getting pregnant the first time (before I was on BC for 10 years)
    Of course it could be the mistletoe. I got pregnant both times in December, after six and five months of trying. Mistletoe is a symbol of fertility.
    Morning sex helps too.

  • Oh, and tracking your cycle to know when you are most fertile is very helpful

  • My friend couldn't get prego for 15 months. She was eating healthy, working out, tracking her cycle, and doing everything she could. She finally gave up coffee absolutely no caffinee and got preggo that next month. I don't know if there was any connection, but if you drink coffee it might be worth giving up.

  • I wasn't actively trying but I kind of knew it was going to happen. When I ovulate I can feel it, it hurts and I had sex while I was feeling that pain and missed my next period.

  • Reading the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility ... it was very informative to help me understand when my body is ovulating.
