Trying to Conceive - Savannah,GA

A.R. asks from Savannah, GA

Me and my husband have been trying to have another baby every since my now 2 1/2 year old son turned 1 years old. I have another child that is 6 year old. I am 25 years old. I have been monitoring my cycles and trying not to think too much about if this time will be the time I get pregnant. Is there anything that I can do? I want two more children by the time I am 29 years old. I want to be done having kids when I am 30 years old.

What can I do next?

I bought one of those ovulation kits at Target and got pregnant on the first try! Also, I'd second the advice on the prenatal vitamins. Good luck!

We used a basal thermometer to determine the timing of ovulation -- good thing, too, as I ovulate a lot earlier in my cycle than average! It's very easy -- take temp before you even talk each morning and chart temp. Like a science experiment!

Everyone I know that follows that diet has no problem conceiving... Even people who fertiliy treatment and all other sorts of plans have not helped. As soon as they fix their diets, getting pregnant comes naturally, the way it should be.

Weston A Price reccommends 3 years of spacing for your body to optimally heal. If you aren't able to concieve it is most likely because your body is still seriously depleted of the needed nutrients to raise a healthy baby to term... If your husband follows it, it will help him as well.

Let me know if you have questions.

Add 50 mg of zinc to your daily intake. Also check your body for percentage of fat - too little or too much can contribute to infertility.

Here's another suggestion. Acupuncture can really help to balance energy pathways, particularly the ones in the pelvic area. There is a doctor in Sandy Springs that I saw who helped us have our second baby (at 42 no less!). She is Dr. Li. Nice lady.

Boost the prenatal vitamins for the folic acid content. Raspberry tea, I hear, is an excellent fertility aid.

In terms of books to read, I think "Inconceivable" by Julia Indichova is excellent.

You are a young woman. Mostly, I think that as soon as you stop trying to get pregnant, you will.

Good luck!

A friend of mine told me that she stood on her head after sex for 5-10 minutes to help get those "little guys down there faster!" It worked for her.

look up natural family planning-- it is a great way to conceive and know when you are and aren't fertile.

Chart by using the FAM Method, buy the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility (amazon is cheaper and you don't have to have the most recent copyright date) and take Fertilitea. Fertilitea will lengthen your "mucus" time and your luteul phase. Charting using the FAM method will tell you exactly when you're fertile -- mucus time. After doing this for a few months, if nothing works, I would suggest seeing a doctor. I'm doing this currently and know when I'm fertile and when I'm not and the tea I take w/honey to sweeten. I'm only taking Fertiltea because my luteul phase is barely 10 days long (some cycles 9 days) and for implantation to even occur you need at least 10 days - and I want to lengthen the luteul phase. Just prepping the body for trying to conceive in the late summer. Good call on the other posts about prenatals.

I was taking some pills prescribed by me obgyn. That's how I got pregnant. You may want to try that.



answers from Los Angeles on

Try maca root. It's a natural root that supports endocrine health and regulates hormone levels. It enhances fertility - in fact they recommend you don't take it if you are on birth control because it can override the birth control. I took it for a month prior to trying to conceive and we got pregnant on the very first try.

Dear A.,
I'll tell you what I did and it worked for me. ;) I did 'it' everyday just in case I would missed my ovulation time :) I didn't stop, I didn't stress and I had fun :)

Don't stress and keep having fun!

Love that Taking Charge of Your Fertility book -- it was a miracle for me and a few women I suggested it to. Tells you not only about your cycle, but why it works and how it works and how knowing these things can help you talk to your GYN if you need any help. Also talks a bit about your husband's role in this practice makes perfect:)



answers from Seattle on

I would get the book, the Art of Natural Family Planning. It has lots of good information on increasing fertility. I would also get all of the junk out of your diet as well as your husband's. Increase veggies, remove all hydrogenated oils, sugars, and artificial sweeteners. Especially get rid of Soy and other foods that are genetically altered. ( Corn, soy,Zucchini, yellow crookneck squash, soybean oil, much canola oil and so on, these are ok if they are organic) Also drink only purified water.

These changes should increase your fertility as well as make your pregnancies and new babies more healthy as well.

On a side note, as a mother of 4 who had her very first at 29 almost 30, having them all early can also be overrated. :)

answers from Indianapolis on

No, don't stop prenatals while on your period, you want them in your system all the time, if you stop for the week you're on your period, you don't have as much in your system a week later when you ovulate:( Every woman of child-baring age who isn't sterile should be taking a prenatal just in case she gets pregnant because you need the folic acid in your system for about a month before you conceive!

When you say you're "monitoring" your cycle, do you mean you're charting temps and mucus? That's the best way to know when you're about to ovulate and when you've already ovulated. If you don't have it, get the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility".

There are herbs that can help. Check out "Wise Woman Herbal for the Childbaring Year".

Good Luck! :)



answers from Atlanta on

I second Sauci-one's suggestion of the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Initially developed for preventing pregnancy, it very accurately finds your most fertile time, which for many women may not be exactly when you thought. For example, I ovulate on day 12 of my cycle (not day 14, as you would expect).



answers from Atlanta on

Good nutrition is essential. An absorbable prenatal multivitamin/mineral complex along with some additional Omegas would be the best way to get your body ready for conception and also get it eager for conception.

Don't stress! Stress can break down your immune system and get everything off kilter. Relaxing will be of tremendous good. That doesn't necessarily mean a day at the spa but not stressing over the day to day issues...

There are few other things I can suggest so if your interested you can send me a PM. It will help not only with conception but with the overall good of your current household!

God bless!
