  • Watch your herbal supplements...some are known to work against you. (Echinacea is one of them but there are others)

  • Drink water, eat veggies, and hump like rabbits

  • Its easiest to know your cycle and go from there. Start at day one of your period and count how many days are in between until the next start of your period the following month. If there are 28 days in between, your most fertile time is or should be on day 14. If there are 30 days in between, then day 15 would be ovulation day. You have about a 2 day before and 2 day after window of when you should be most likely ovulating. Make sense? (so thats a 5 day window of having sex days to optimize getting pregnant) If there was more to your question, ask them please :) Hope this is what you were looking for

  • You CAN get pregnant on your period and not everyone ovulates at the same time. Do it often, I think it helps if you both orgasm, and after, don't go to the bathroom for at least an hour. Put a pillow under your butt and hold your legs up on the wall if you have to. Gravity DOES work.

  • Stop trying so hard. It's usually the one's that want babies so bad that don't get pregnant. Then the people like me, that's trying NOT to have anymore (or the really really sorry women who keep getting pregnant and giving their kids away) are like baby-making machines... True.

  • Good grief, Tcarter. I just posted about the legs up on the wall on another pregnancy post. I thought I was the only nutty one who did that but it sure did work.

    Also, to the original poster after the "fact" you might even want to just shove your finger or 2 up there and push the stuff up as far as you can get it. But I swear by the cervical mucus and legs on wall and butt on pillow strategy.

    Good luck and don't stress because if you want this too much you will have a harder time. once you relax and just enjoy you may be coming back to tell us about your positive test.

    Happy conceiving!
