Got pregnant after trying for so long

Hello to any of the women who come across this thread. I had tried to get pregnant for years with no success. Finally, in April of this year I learned that I was expecting my first child. Tragically, this pregnancy ended in my third month. My husband and I would like to start trying again and were hoping for any tips to make getting pregnant successful this time around.

Hi dlynn78! I'm really sorry that you lost your first baby. Good luck w/ the next one. My husband and I have been trying for over 6 years now and still nothing. Would you mind sharing w/ me some of the reasons why it took you so long to finally carry a child? And best wishes for the next one.

Hi kmoser . . . thanks for your reply. I really think it took us so long because of my stressed out nature. Plus, I don't think we tried at the right time of the month. When I conceived this time I had just returned from vacation, was totally relaxed, have a good job, a nice home...things that I normally worry/stress about...I wasn't anymore. I really wish you the best in your attempt to conceive. Keep me updated!

dlynn i would suggest first of all to go and have progesterone levels checked since progesterone is a very important part of pregnany if progesterone is low then you will have a hard time with good implantation and also with ovulation i would also suggest using opk's from like day 10 of your cycle until you get a dark surge this will help you see if and when you are ovulating good luck to you tomorrow will be my last day in the 2 week wait and i will see then if i am pregnant this cycle or not good luck to you guys

Hi.I agree with kmoser on the progesterone levels. We had 2 miscarriages around 6 weeks and my doctor ended up putting me on prometrium which is a form of progesterone. On the one pregnancy we had a harder time conceiving after the miscarriage and I was also advised to start taking Clomid which helps with ovulation. While we did not suspect actual ovulation issues since I had a successful pregnancy a few years back, he indicated this also helped with the early stages of pregnancy as well. Sadly there were other issues which were determined after a 3rd miscarriage and at that point we went for full blown testing. One other item came up but they typically do not do this level of testing until there have been multiple miscarriages in a row or continuous issues with trying to conceive. The only other tip I can think of is to extend the time that you try to conceive. Which we did. My new doctor told us to try (every other day) from days 9-20 from the first date of your cycle and we are now pregnant and hoping for the best.
