  • The best way to get pregnant is to count 14 days from the first day of your period and have sex on day 14-18. After having sex put a pillow under your bottom and stay laying down for atleast 20 minutes. I know it sounds dumb but it works. I had a hard time getting pregnant with #4 and I actually got these tips off babycenter way back when.

  • Well, step number one would be to go see your ob/gyn. They need to do a general check-up to be sure that there are no problems. Then, after all is good & you get the go-ahead... You & DH both need to be taking a daily vitamin. You can even take prenatals (actually, that's best), and your hubby can just take a regular multivitamin. Also, do NOT use lubricants. They damage sperm. When we were TTC, I would always prop my butt up on a pillow or two after sex & lay there for 30 or so minutes. I did all of the above, and apparently it worked, because my son is 10 months old! lol Good luck! : )

  • Try charting your temperature for awhile! It works!
