  • You don't have insurance but you want to get pregnant? How are you going to pay for 9 months of prenatal care?

  • I agree with the above statement. Don't keep having kids if you can't afford the ones you already have (and no, food stamps and medicaid do NOT mean it's okay to keep popping out kids).

  • Umm..a month is not long to try. Most recommendations are that you shouldn't be concerned until you have been trying for at least 6 months.

  • If you already have kids then you should know that there are only three days a month that you can get pregnant. You've only been trying 1 month. Add you get older it can take longer. Even if you to a doctor, they will tell you to come back in a year if you haven't gotten pregnant.

  • I think you should just let nature take its course and if your ment to get pregnant you will. It can take a normal healthy couple up to 6 months to get pregnant. And you only have a 20% chance every month of getting pregnant. Don't stress about it that doesn't help anything!

  • A healthy couple with no fertility problems can take as long as 18 months to conceive. Yes there are certain vitamins you and he should be taking especially if he smokes. But the older you get the harder conception is. Give it time.

  • Carrots Bananas, Pomegranates,and Figs will help boost fertility. Cumin is good as well. Use seeds in your cooking, leaves in the salad, and add the oil to ice cream, drinks, sweets and bread. Make sure you get Vitamin E, B-6, Manganese, Selenium, and Zinc. Make sure your man gets Vitamin C, E, B-12, Manganese, Selenium,Zinc, and EFA's (essential fatty acids) found in seeds (Pumpkin, sesame,sunflower, linseed), nuts and oily fish such as tuna, mackrel, herring, and salmon. Stay relaxed and focus on how good he makes you feel. Because stressing about a baby will throw your body's pH out of whack.
