My wife and I have been trying to have a baby for about a year now but she hasnt gotten pregnant yet. The doctors put her on Clomyd for ovulation but I think they are just taking her money. Any suggestions ladies?

Buy the Thermometer. I've seen a lot of couples do that.. buy the thermometer can show up to 2 decimal places. Record down the temperature daily. On her ovulating periods, she will have a slight increase in temperate in 0.01 or 0.02. Make love during that point of time. :-) Hope it helps.

Try to relax and maybe put the baby issue in the back of your minds. A lot of times the reason couples can't get pregnant is because they are stressing over it. I wish you the best of luck!

That's great advice... it always happens when you least expect it anyway, right? Also, the stress of wanting a child or not getting pregnant can actually hurt your chances. My hubby and I tried for 3 1/2 years before we were succesful and now we have two children. There are a ton of tips on 'how to' and I will share a couple goodies I know of: folic acid is supposed to help both becoming pregnant and a developing fetus. It can be a store bought vitamin supplement or found in certain foods. Another tip is to make sure she has the 'big O' because it will help lubricate and the contractual movement will help your 'lil guys' to fight gravity... on that note, another tip is to place a pillow under her behind and use missionary position to help gravity work and then have her stay lying down (with the hiney lifted under the pillow) for 20 minutes or more afterward. Lastly, keep your guys cool and unrestricted, which may mean changing from tighty-whities to boxers. Good Luck and hey even if it takes a while, it's always fun trying!

I'm so sorry to hear that you're having a hard time conceiving. I would take the advice of some people here and try to put the baby thing in the back of your mind (I know it's easier said than done) and just enjoy making love together. I've always heard that if you're relaxed, it'll happen easier. My husband and I tried for four months before getting pregnant. I was temping, taking ovulation kits every month.... the month we conceived, we weren't trying. Funny how it works out sometimes. :) Good luck, I'll be thinking of you guys!

My husband & I were in the same boat for a couple of years. We both had tests done & found out that we were both ok & that I should be falling pregnant. I put it down to me always thinking about falling pregnant because the only time I gave up thinking about it all the time, I fell pregnant. Alot of it can do with the mind as my friend was in the same position too until she gave up. I know it's had but try not thinking about it constantly & she should fall pregnant. I did.

i think u guys should not stress over it either stess can keep you from doing alot of things. also she can look at her lifestyle, like the kind of work she does, or resposibilities at home maybe she has so much going on that causes her a lot of stress also. main thing, she should take lots of time out for herself for relaxation and let her body just calm down

I agree with the others. You both need to relax and just stop stressing about it. Stress creates a hostile environment and fries your little swimmers. You need to be careful with those ovulation hormones, you may get a multiple birth that you don't expect.

"In everything there is a purpose and a time to every season" I suggest that you wait for God's best timing. I believe that in everything there is a time for it. Just believe that you will have a baby and God will provide in His own wonderful time. Enjoy your relationship now. Look at the story in the Bible about SARAH AND ABRAHAM. They never have a baby, but they wished for it very much. They have faith that someday God will provide them. ANd God did it... Just enjoy being together..

Read the book The Billings Method. It teaches how a certain type of mucus is fertile mucus that is necessary for conception and how to detect it. It makes it simple and easy to understand.

Hey congrats man! Thats good to hear! Maybe if you guys just relax, take a couple days off lol, so you can freshen up. Then when its time to start back up again be fun, new and spontaneous! Try different styles, different places, something fun and wild.....it will make the both of you feal good. You should eat lots of protein too. Nothing but steaks for you man, it makes a male chance higher! Godd luck

My sister just got pregnant a few months ago and this is her first one to go into the second trimester, she's had four miscarraiges. But she was on Clomid and everything and went off of it and that's the month that she got pregnant, of course it's when she least expected it! I think you guys should relax and not force it, and it'll happen... Good luck!

I'm sorry, it took awhile for my wife and I as well, one thing is to try to keep your mind off getting pregnant and enjoy what you are doing. I think maybe less stress helps sometimes.
