Try taking a vacation, starting a project, or having some wine to relax the anxiety out of you, but don't drink alot! Whenever you start doing other things and forget about it, it will happen. Six months is not a long time. Best advice, don't try so hard, just have fun with hubby! You'll be a momma in no time! Good luck!

relax relax relax.... if you would just relax and ease your mind, you would have so much more of a chance that you'd conceive... i know it is mind racking, but seriously try to come up with some different activity, and dont have sex just to make a baby, have fun makin the baby... your only 22 years old and yall have plenty of time to have one... Any way good luck!

STOP THINKING ABOUT IT. You are causing yourself to be super stressed, which in turn will make it twice as hard for you to conceive. Just go about your every day life, doing and planning other things, and when you are relaxed and not worrying about it, it will happen. I got pregnant the first time I had sex with my first, and the second, I went off birth control and it took six months, but we were not even worried about it. Just figured when it happened, it happened, AND IT HAPPENED.

oh goodness I am so happy I found this!!!!!!! I am 25 and I recently got off of birth control....well, I hardly was on them to begin with. I only took them for a few months and it was just messing with my body SO much, bleeding for 3 weeks at a time, I was crying uncontrollably for no reason all the time - so I just stopped altogether. Finally my cycle is back to normal (YAY!) and I can start calculating when I'm ovulating etc....I make sure we have sex when i'm ovulating all the time. And I'm still not pregnant. We haven't been trying for too long, just since June. My manager and I were talking about this and she said her dr. had told her that most women will get pregnant within a year of trying. I guess it can't happen right away for everyone!
Im so happy i'm not the only one running to the store to get a pregnancy test because I "thought" I was having pregnancy symptoms...tiredness, sore nipples and such....just to get disappointed. SO! I've vowed to stop getting so worked up about it and stopped "wishing" it to happen so much. Maybe the less I think about it, I don't know. lol. BUT! In my search of finding a way to get pregnant easier because I do have a tilted uterus and have read that can have an affect on getting pregnant....I found that fish oil really helps in fertility! That's what I'm going to try!

Another quick note on the fish oil.....supposedly, it's supposed to help w/fertility and it will help your hair shine and grow real nice plus your nails! And it seems like you are really looking for a more natural way to boost your fertility, like I am. I hope it works for you if u try it! Good luck!!

I am completely in the same boat. We are both 19, and married and We've been trying since August of this year and I've even been taking the one a day womens prenatules along with fish oil and ice changed my diet completely, walking for at least an hour everyday, and still no baby.
This past October I began to lactate And we thought for sure that this was it! but days later I had my period and a negative pregnancy test. Now it's November and I've began to lactate again I just don't want to keep running to the store spending $10 for a HPT:(
they always turn out negative, and I wish for it to be positive.
In 2009 alone 4 of my friends had babies all this year. And I hosted the bby showers! Talk about faking a smile! Yep. It's been plastered on my face for a while. All of my friends are mothers and sometimes it's just so hard to even talk to them so I've kind of cut myself off from them. I've never even held their babies! It's just so painful to look at because I can't seem to finally be a mom.
I'm still going to keep trying. Maybe I am stressing too much too!

Baby
I'm 19 and I've been desperately been trying to a baby for a year now. Everyone, is like chill..your too young. I know I have my life to live and everything but, it still worries me. It has not happened yet and it worries me just about everyday. I'm afraid because, I really want kids. Should I be worried?

equally discouraged about not conceiving
hey all! i definately am in the same boat of EVERYONE on here, My doctor put me on B.C 12 years ago to get my cycle regulated and from then on it did nothing but screw my cycle and my body up...so 12 months ago i decided all together to get off of it, now we have been trying for 12 months and counting and still nothing, it is so hard not to thiink about it when everyone around you is wishing it to happen and they bring it up all the time, i have always wanted 4 children, however after going through this very difficult rollercoaster i just want one to call my own and if more happen they happen but i wont ever get my hopes up again. i have boughten over 30 tests and have tried everything in the book... i hope it wont take another year...good luck to all your woman! I DEFINATELY FEEL FOR YA!

don't be so depressed and don't focus yourself on being pregnant, instead enjoy your time with your husband.

are you ready?
some of you females need to really ask yourselves why you want or "need" a baby at this point in your lives. It is alot of hard work and sleepless nights and much more responsability than you might think. parenting is a 24 hr job. yes, being a mother is such a wonderful gift and is very rewarding, however it is so important that it is the right time for everybody otherwise both you and baby will not get the most out of the experience. Girls, please educate yourselves, not only scholasticly but also on the facts of pregnancy and child raising. If and when you get pregnant, please get prenantal care as soon as possible, read every book on pregnancy, take a parenting class, have a strong support group behind you for when you need help. Good luck to all of you and remember that this will change your life forever, a little one will depend on you to make the best life for her/him, are you ready? Smile
