Hi April! I agree with the PP - even if you're young, healthy, and fertile; getting pregnant is all about timing. Try using OPK's to find out exactly when you O each month. Good luck!

Hi April,

You're doing the right things. I hope you get your BFP soon. Once you have been charting for a while you will be amazed at how well you get to know your body.

I think it's always a good idea to get checked out by a DR prior to TTC - a preconception visit. It wouldn't do any harm to make sure that you've working with the best start possible for a healthy pregnancy.


Sometimes too much of a good thing is exactly that. I don't know what your definition of BDing a lot is (my SO would say a lot is 3 times a day if he had it his way), try BDing every 24 to 36 hours.

I'm glad you are going to start charting, it can be so useful in seeing what your cycle is doing.
