  • Naturally. I sat down and had a little chat with myself a long time ago about it. Basically came to the conclusion that it would happen when my mind and body were in a state where it would be conducive to having a baby....

    6 years later I am currently pregnant with my first and any earlier would have been too soon.

    Every woman has to make that decision for herself. But I think that fertility drugs are expensive at best and a lot of false hope at worst.

  • We have lost two babies at 4-6 weeks preggo and I was 8 months when I lost my son Jacob. Our hormone levels are very low and our ob recommends fertility treatments and if it doesnt work trying invitro we desperately want another child

  • We've been trying for a year, and gotten pregnant once, though I miscarried, but I think I'm pregnant. I find out today!! Anyway, we decided not to use fertility drugs.

  • Personally I would only go natural. I have 1 child now & if thats the only child we ever have I am OK with that. It would be hard since I want a sibling for dd.

    But Im all for other couples getting whatever help they need to have a baby if that is what they want to do.

  • A baby is a baby however it is me anyways.

  • Did both. My DD was concieved naturally (on the first try, lol) but TTC this time was brutal. Everyone had an opinion and had no problem telling me what was wrong with me or what we were doing wrong. So... after a m/c, we went with fertility drugs and it worked on the 4th month. So, whatever works for you! Good luck!
