We have been trying for 3 months now. And I can agree with the stress being an issue for my situation. We really want a baby and just hoping we can have one.

I am using clearblue fertility monitor. there are always two peak day indicating that the egg is going to release. Meanwhile, i ve also used other OPK to test if the monitor is correct. The reason may be stress, we are both doing high pressure jobs and we are so eager for a baby, so maybe it doean;t work this way. Need to relax...

Wondering about the 'sex during ovulation' thing. Depends on how you know you've O'd. If you're basing it on temp rise, your missing it and having sex too late, after you have ovulated. Your body temperature rises after ovulation...it is an indication that you have ovulated, but is not useful for determining when to have sex. Using a fertility monitor, we had sex on the day before I ovulated and are now pregnant. No kidding, after nearly a year of trying for #2 (well, longer as we m/c last Christmas), turns out our timing was off...I ovulate on day 21 of my cycle and we were totally missing it. I am 37, so didn't expect it to work that quickly.

I suggest using Fertilaid. Google it. It has helped so many people conceive who have had trouble conceiving. It's worth a try!

3 months? thats nothing! it takes on average 1 year for a "healthy" couple to conceive.

if you are not pregnant within 12 months then go visit your GP, IF you are over 35 go after 6months.

Good Luck and do not stress!

How old are you? Are you using anything to help confirm that your o'ing when you think? There is actually only a 20% chance that you will even concieve each cycle even you time everything perfectly. Most healthy couple could take up to a year to concieve if you are under 35. If you don't concieve within the year then it may be time to see the GP who could possiby refer you to someone else. If you are over 35, they say to give it 6 months. We have been trying for 2 months and timing everything (we think) perfectly. I just need to practice more patience, as I will need it when my miracle actually comes into our lives. I know how frustrating it is, as do a lot of ladies on this site, so you're not alone! Hope that helps!! *baby dust to you*
