My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 3 months now. I've been charting my cycle & we've had very regular sex (every 1-2 days) before, during, and around the time of ovulation.
I haven't been on any birth control for 2 years & 3 months (since my celiac disease dx). I'm extremely careful about gluten and cc, and haven't been glutened in a very long time. I'm taking prenatal vitamins, I've abstained completely from alcohol, and have kept my caffeine intake down to either one cup of coffee per day, or two mugs of tea per day maximum. I am active, eat healthy, exercise regularly, don't smoke, etc. My husband is also healthy and we're both relatively young (I'm 28 and he's 31).
I know these things take time, but each month I've been so "sure" I'm pregnant, and then the HPT is negative and I'm seriously disappointed. I can't figure out what, if anything, we're doing wrong ... or if I just need to relax and be patient (which is probably the most likely thing).
But if anyone does have any tips for increasing fertility, I'm all ears!! (or eyes )
Edited to add: My last test of ttg levels were nil, so I haven't had any contact as of that time, and my last vitamin panel (which was right before we started trying to conceive 3 months ago) was perfectly normal.
