I think a lot of people tell women that aren't getting pregnant right away that it's not happening because of "stress." I never "felt" stressed out about it, at least no more than my regular level of "stress" from work, family drama, etc. We were trying, but it wasn't happening right away. We decided to adopt when I didn't get pregnant after the first 3 months, but continued to pursue pregnancy, and even had work-up for infertility. I honestly didn't feel "stressed" because we had a baby on the way through the adoption.
If you don't feel "stressed" then you probably aren't. You're probably really attuned with your body, especially if you're trying to get pregnant, so you know.
If you're worried, you are adding "stress" to your system (cortisol), and should try some relaxation methods. The best thing you can do for yourself right now is to take care-- physically and emotionally.
