Her and her husband have been trying almost a year now with no luck. She asked me what tricks we used to increase our chances when we were trying to concieve CJ but we were just very lucky. I was pregnant within a month of us trying. I'm either REALLY fertal or he has super sperm lol. What this post is about is I was hoping you ladies would share with me tricks you used to help conceive so i could share them with her.

My sister was having trouble conceiving, so her and hubby decided to put it off. She went on a diet, couple weeks later she was pregnant. Alot of ladies i know got pregnant while dieting.

Random surprise with the first on and took almost two years with the second. My doctor ended up putting me on Clomid. I got pregnant within two months of taking it.

With dd I went off the pill and we used a Walgreens brand ovulation kit. Got pregnant right away. FF 6 years and we were ready to try again. That time it took 2 months (I was going off bc but decided to just go natural and when things happened they happened so no ovulation kit). But I mc at 5 weeks. That was in Sept. So we kept trying and I got pregnant again in Dec. But again mc at 5-6 weeks. It was horrible. But low and behold I got pregnant again in January and we are due in October. I'm currently 19 weeks. It's very hard and honestly when we weren't trying so hard, that's when we got pregnant. When it happend after the second mc, I was just barely feeling up for sex and more trying to make dh happy and reassure him I was ok. Sometimes after you've been trying for awhile you need to take a break. I honestly think we were having sex too much a lot of the time! Ovulation kits work great and you don't need the super expensive ones. After a year of trying though or three mc you want to get your ob involved and do some extra tests. It may be time to go to  fertility specialist. That's about all I got.

My first 3 I was really lucky and fell pregnant the first month. Number 4 was more stubborn LOL. After trying for 3 months I thought, fine Im ok, we've got 3 healthy kids and Im happy. The next month, oh hello pink lines :)  I often hear that when you stop stressing about it, it will happen :)

We didn't try for our first one, said if it happens it happens. 2nd one we tried 1 night and bam, we hit jackpot only to lose it 9 weeks later, tried immediately afterm bam, again and kept sticking. DS3, he came along, even thou I was on BC and took it at regular time, no antibiotics, nada. He was meant to be I guess.
Important thing is not to stress yourself with the thought to get pregnant, let it go. Just enjoy the sensual bonding moment without any thoughts.

Oh okay, I ask because I'm at my heaviest weight other than during my pregnancy and I'm starting to wonder if that may be a factor. I also have messed up periods so I'm going to discuss birth control this week with my doctor for a few month(s) than stop. I'm 5'3 and 144lbs, but I've always been 110-120lbs so this is a big difference for me.
