Don't Stress Out: Right after I got married my husband and I decided to TTC. I remember it being a long process and family and friends telling me to not stress out about it. That was the last thing I wanted to hear but when we stopped stressing out, things got easier and I felt healthier. I remember my doctor saying that reducing stress could help increase blood flow to the uterus which would make a better environment for TTC.
Make TTC Fun: After a while of TTC our first it seemed like a job and chore instead of something we should enjoy. As soon as we started to relax and become romantic and understanding with each other, TTC became something we enjoyed looking forward to.
Doctor's Help: If you are in your 30's or have been trying to conceive for at least a year it may be time to seek help from a doctor. I felt that my regular GYN doctor was taking it too easy and passive and being in my early 30's I wanted to be more aggressive. I saw an amazing RE (Reproductive Endocrinologist) and she covered all the bases to help me conceive my daughter.
Basal Temperature and Ovulation Test Strips: You may be missing the perfect window to TTC. Taking your basal body temperature as soon as you wake up in the morning and charting it can show you the best days to try. Ovulation test strips takes all of the guess work out and tells you when you are in your prime for TTC.
