Doing it wrong?

We have tried and tried and tried and tried and (you get the point), we have tried frown mini  to get pregnant for almost a year now. I have the charts, the counters, the pineapple, no caffine, no alcohol, lost weight, blah blah blah. No baby.
Can all of you tell me how you did it? Start from the beginning.
I am obviously getting it wrong! We BD when I am fertile? When I am ovualting? When my temp drops, when it rises? Stand on my head? Eat pineapple core before, during, after BDing?
Please tell me your secrets. No pressure for me, but if we dont get pregnant this month, that is it for us. We cant try anymore. Long story, but this is it. I need help, please!! And Thank You!!

 I agree with the mama's above.  I never charted anything, never took my temp, none of it.  And I got preg ASAP!  Just relax and have fun.  laughing

You all are right, the stress of it is craziness. Just so hard to not think about it and "give up".

I tried charting and all that for months before we conceived. The month we threw out the book and just decided to go with it was the month we got pregnant. I know its hard but you have to let your body relax and just enjoy being intimate together. When your every thought is on pregnancy, you can put too much pressure on your partner which makes him stressed out and not able to perform as well. My advice......stop charting, stop bd'ing when your ovulating, don't keep track anymore and just go with it. Keep positive thoughts and you'll get your wish! Good luck mama! Consider yourself on vacation from TTC as of right now!

I know what u mean..Me and my hubby have been trying for # 2 for a long time and i have tried to just do with it and relax..and it is hard when the doc wants me to now go back to ovulation kits and prenatal vitamins..But they say once u do relax and least expect it , it will happen..Goodluck to u.KMFX for u!

I understand how you feel. What I did differently last month was that I didn't stress or obsess about anything. I am not even sure when I ovulated and  I didn't even take my temp.  I truly believe that is why I got pregnant this month. I told myself that I am blessed with 2 wonderful boys and an awesome husband so I am okay with not having another baby. My husband reminded me that I was a few days late and I took a test and couldn't believe that it was positive. I really believe if you relax and enjoy life what will be will be. Good Luck!!!

I hope this is your month... When ppl say it happens when you least expect it, their not kidding! So, just try to relax and it will happen! BABY DUST TO YOU~~ =)
