  • Do not over think it, if you try too hard it will become like a chore and both will get stressed and it will be hard to get pregnant. Dont TRY to get pregnant just stop trying to NOT get pregnant lol, make love when you want to and feel like it not because you have to, keep it fun!

  • everyone has already said this but it is SO true im saying it too!! Don't stress over it! If you think about it to much it wont happen trust me, my husband and I tried for 2 1/2 yrs and b/c of the chance I couldnt have kids we gave up thinking we would adopt. then about 2 or 3 months later I was pregnant! I was stressing over it and thinking about it way too much. just relax and have fun with it! Dont make this a chore.

  • Do not use any birth control and just have sex. Do not freak out obout when is the best time. Just try to have sex at least 3 times a week. If nothing is wrong with either of you, you will be pregnant soon.

  • Don't use a lubricant, follow your body's cues (cervical fluid) and do it when you have the desire to do it. Nature should lead you in the right direction. When you can't stop having sexy thoughts, get it on!

  • other ladies are correct. dont try, just do it. we got pregnant our first try each time by just having alot of sex that month. its a lot of fun =)

  • I used the website It calculated my cycle and told me when to try. with my son it worked the first time. this time its taking longer but it is very accurate

  • My husband and I are trying for baby 2.... At first I started to look up things all the time about trying to conceive... I started to talk to friends about it... I started to get really stressesd out about it cause people around me were getting pregnant and asking me all the time when we were going to have baby 2... Don't stress about it! Enjoy that time with your husband. It will happen when it happens.. Don't give up hope if it takes awhile for you...
