Already a mom - but TTC #2

I'm new here and love that I found you all. Been reading a lot of posts and already feel encouraged. I am going on 42 and hubby and I have been TTC for over two years. My first was born three years ago next week and he was conceived the first time we tried. Now, after all this time, seems like that never happened and it was all just the stork.
I had a BFP back in October of '08, but miscarried at 8 weeks, had a D&C, then several bouts of long sinus infections that kept me very sick for months, and then had back surgery in May of '09, which despite the doctors promise of quick recovery, required 10 months of follow up, strong pain medication and physical therapy. Obviously lots of obstacles to getting it on, let alone getting another BFP.
We have been consistently trying for 7 months now, and I have been on natural progesterone for 5 of those months to try to balance my hormones naturally. My holistic doc says I have high cortisol and my Prog/estrogen ratio is way off. Which pretty much means I'm stressed out. Bust into tears every time I get my period.
Anyway, hubby and I are struggling with keeping the flame alive - seems so mechanical now. Well, I'm wondering what you gals may suggest to spice it up a bit. How do you forget that the deed has a purpose and try to make it fun again?
I recently bought a couple products from early-pregnancy-tests.com. One is called Pre-seed, which is a TTC safe lubricant, the other is FertileCM to improve the quality of CM (which is pretty much non-existent in me!)
Does anyone have any experience with these products? Any success stories or advice against them?
