  • A few weeks? Thats nothing. Conceiving for a playmate is a little silly.

  • A few weeks is not enough time...hell you could be pregnant for all you know @ this point...I agree with butterfly though---don't have another baby just b/c your older one needs a playmate.

  • use the fertility predictors... you can get them at any cvs, walgreens, rite aid, etc....

    I got the digital one which made it so much easier to read..... a bit more expensive but SOOOOO worth it...
    once I saw that little happy face on the screen we had 48 hours to have sex

    we got pregnant with twins the first try!

    if you are following the directions and you arnt getting a fertile sign the first month I would see a fertility specialist to make sure everything is okay

    and if you are getting the positive fertility sign and haven sex as directed and you still arnt able to get pregnant within 5 months I would recommened haven your husband get checked out to make sure his little swimmers are in good working condition.

    good luck

  • Well conceiving for a playmate might be silly to some but thats not the only reason why I'm try to have another child. I love being a mother and I wouldnt change that for anything in the world and I want as many children that God will allow me to have. I have troble carrying a child and have been pregnant two other times and lost the babies so at this point I would love to give my daughter a playmate as well as have another baby..

  • A few week isn't very long, hun. Sorry for your losses. Have you talked to your dr about possible ways to help prevent miscarriages? Some women have low progesterone and need more in order to carry a baby. Good luck! : )
