  • We tried for two years before we were blessed with a miracle. It is hard, and it hurts. It feels like your heart is being torn out every time the bleeding starts. But there will come a time. Sometimes you have to give up before you can get what you want.

  • There could be. I'd keep trying for a few more month and once you hit the 1 year mark, if you haven't been able to conceive, I would go see a specialist about it. Sometimes there is a legitmate reason, with 1 or both people and other times everything is completely fine and its just tricky. I have a cousin who tried to conceive for 4 years. Doctor after doctor kept telling her nothing is wrong...they finally ended up just getting IVF done because they both were approaching the 35 mark. Now they have twins!

  • well, don't stress about it.... that won't help (i know it's hard lol). some advice i got that i swear by is to act like you're pregnant when you're ttc. so take your prenatals every day, no drinking, etc. and eat healthy/ moderate exercise. it won't hurt to try that
