    Hello ladies,

    So as some of you may know me I’ve been trying since November 2018 and had zilch, I’ve been to the doctors on 3 different occasions and they have refused point blank to help me due to my age, told me to come back in a few years. The funniest thing about this whole thing is they have even offered to council me about how upsetting it’s making me! So me and my partner decided to stop trying about 2 cycles ago, it’s been nice not pushing for something and was hoping the relaxed approach would help but something inside of me is just urging me to carry on! So I was wondering if you could all tell me your tips that helped you get pregnant or that you’re using to help you currently. Anything from vitamins to how much to baby dance! I just need to cram the knowledge in, I have a good feeling about 2020 but dreading coming to another year marker, it’s a cruel thing it really is!

    Thank you! Xx

    My husband and I started TTC in January 2017, in November 2019 I got my BFP - we had given up trying but we weren't preventing as we'd been told the chances of us falling without help were slim to none. Factors I believe helped us were; less stress, we had resigned ourselves to the fact that it wouldn't happen, my husband has also gone back to employment rather than running his own business so his stress levels have reduced, and he is also drinking and smoking less. It's very early days for us still so anything could happen, and as annoying as it is for people to say you really just need to stop trying so hard I honestly believe that was a factor with us....I don't know how old you are but if you are young then there shouldn't be anything preventing you. After a year you can ask to have tests to check you are ovulating which are done with a blood test each month for three month at set times of the month and you OH could have a semen analysis just to rule that out as an issue but by doing both of those things it could actually cause you more stress and be counter productive. Stress is such a huge factor in life these days I'm sure that is why so many people struggle.x

    I tried for my son for 2.5 years I ended up having surgery so I think that helped me however the constant said there was no major issues apart from a cyst and mild endometriosis . I’m currently on month 4 trying for my second. I bought the new clear blue connect to try this month so I’m doing every other day. I’m not being too hard on myself this month as it’s christmas so bad food and some wine will be had. Lol.Come January I’m gona be strict.

    Thank you for sharing and congratulations on your little bean <3 I may have to try that route, my OH has had sperm check and he’s all good, like perfect which make me feel worse because if there is a problem it will be me.. he’s 27 and I’m 21, he already has a daughter that I treat like my own anyway but the doctors just won’t listen lol, oh well will try again in the new year! Thank you very much xx

    Aww thanks for checking in hun! Unfortunately not pregnant yet! but I have finally been taken serious at the doctors and been told I have cysts, which could be blocking a Fallopian tube. Hopefully this can be the start of some answers as I’ve just hit the 16th cycle! How are you doing? x

    I hope things can be resolved for you now that the problem had been found, did they say you would need surgery for that? AFM, going into my third trimester - the final stretch as they would say.

    Thank you hun, unfortunately my scan was cancelled yesterday due to the virus so it will be a little while longer before I find out if surgery is needed :(
    Goshhhh that’s so exciting! Do you know what you’re having?

    Hannah1678 - I am sorry to read that scan was cancelled. Although if docs are not sure about treatments, it's better to stay safe and take care about yourself. xx
