I'm disturbed by the fact that your doctor has only recommended you lose weight to help you TTC. Did you see a reproductive endocrinologist? If not, I think you should go see one. For a doctor to simply give you that "diagnosis" seems irresponsible to me. Your weight coulc also be attributed to a certain form of PCOS, in which you'd need medicine to help regulate your hormones and would also bring your weight down, and that would help you to get pregnant. I'd tell that doctor to go pound sand and I'd find someone else! I'm sure that was a difficult thing to hear from your doctor and you deserve more help than that. Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself and good luck to you! :)

Well, don't feel so bad. I have been trying now to conceive our second child for about 10 months now and no luck. It is super frustrating and has become a chore for my husband and I. We are actually seeing a fertility specialist on Monday to see what our options are. It took me 8 months to conceive my first, whom is a little boy and 15 months. The only thing that I have been doing is taking prenatal vitamins daily, using preseed for lubricant when we BD, and have been using the Clear Blue easy fertility monitor. I ABSOLUTELY love this thing because it gives me 5 days of a fertile window versus the CBE OPK kits. It is $200 but so worth it. I have a cycle every month but it ranges from 25 days to 32 days. I never know when I am going to ovulate, so that is why this monitor is a God send. Keep positive and your head up! It will happen for you! Don't you hate when people tell you that you are trying too hard and it will happen when you least expect it? Baby dust to you!

I understand, TTC can be very, very stressful. Getting to a healthy weight, eating right, and exercising can really help fertility for both men and women. Also you might want to add something to help deal with the stress... yoga (there are even some fertility yoga dvds), mediatation, or a favorite hobby. 6 months is a normal amount to be trying--even if it does feel like forever! Some people take some supplements, but I personally don't like adding anything like that unless advised to do so by a dr (aside from normal vitamins). Some people also try acupuncture, which I like because there aren't any side effects. Good luck to you!!
