Congratulations with your marriage! On average it takes 3 months for couples to get pregnant. So stop worrying and enjoy making love to your husband. Even if it takes longer than 3 months, it is still ok.
Normally you only need to follow special procedures when you have been trying for a year. Here are a few general guidelines however:
Use a sperm friendly lubricant like PreSeed. Normal lubes trapp sperm.
Lie on your back for 15 to 20 minutes after sex. Lift your behind with a pillow to keep the semen close to your cervix. Then go pee and clean up.
Sex every day or every second day is fine for the week before you ovulate.
Learn to recognize ovulation and your fertile week if you do not do so already (if you do not know how, drop me an IM and I can point you to a tutorial).
Relax, exercise, eat well, cut out medicines and drugs where you can.
It is good to orgasm close to your husband. About 45 seconds before or after. Do not stress if this does not happen. It is thought that an orgasm then changes the pH of your vagina a bit and it helps the sperm to move faster to your ovaries. It is not quite clear if this helps, but it cannot hurt.
And once again, relax and enjoy sex. 2 months is nothing in the bigger scheme of things. It is as important for you and your new husband to bond sexually and enjoy each other.
