  • Have sex . I dunno I don't know any of the tricks. A lady on CM said her good luck was putting a pacifier in her mouth while she and DH had sex. It's worth a try. LOL

  • And have you talked to your doctor about being tested to find out if there is a REASON you are having a hard time getting/staying pregnant?

  • other than not ovulating, they couldn't find a reason with me or my husband.

  • If you are having miscarriages, you need to have a doctor check your hormone levels. nothing that we can suggest will help you if your levels are not staying consistant. Sorry.

  • I have no experience with this but last week spoke to another Mom who is very bright and had a terrible time getting pregnant. She researched and found she was allergic to pregnancy. The cure was blood thinners. Once she got pregnant she took them (aspirin) and had two kids back to back, no issue but took the blood thinners thru both prenancies....She too miscarried. IDK like I said but maybe?

  • What helped me is not focusing so much on getting pregnant but enjoying sex. I found that when I was wrapped up in when I was ovulating or fertile, it was very stressful... but when I finally let go thats when it happened. So just have fun:) And you will be fine;)
