First, I’m sorry for all the negative things that have happened  I hope things start turning more positive  

as for TTC – read the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Take your temperature each morning (you said you’re planning to do that). And I’d suggest using the app Fertility Friend for the charting. It’s amazing how much I didn’t know about how to get pregnant. It’s much more complex than they make it sound in school!

MrsAndrus322:  I’m so sorry for your losses. I also had a year from hell (apologies to ladies who have heard this), but my MIL died, followed a week later by her father, my sister had a routine surgery that required right follow up surgeries, my mom became paralyzed, my cousin was murdered and we had three miscarriages throughout the year (I don’t believe they were caused by the stress, though). It sounds like you guys have your heads on straight, but just be warned that stepping up TTC can add a whole other layer of stress. Just something to keep in mind. We’re 38, so times not on our side. If it was, I’d rather take a good six months off.

lots of ladies on here use Fertility Friend to revord temps and share charts. Otherwise, yes – a bbt thermometer and ovulation predictor kits (opks). You can get them at a drug store, or you can get like 1000 of them for $10 on amazon. Then it’s just some timed intercourse & waiting.

I’m so sorry to hear about these hard things you’ve been going through. I just started TTC, so I don’t really have any specific advice about that. But I wanted to chime in and say that 4 months isn’t long. It just takes some couples longer. So don’t let that stress you out. Not saying that you can’t start doing some things to up your chances, but don’t let the stress get to you!
