    Trying to Conceive after I've already conceived (twice)

    Hello

    I am 31 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive for the past 6 months. I have two children from a previous relationship and my husband has one from a previous relationship. My cycles are regular, and I don't believe I have any fertility issues. I guess, I just want an answer why I'm not pregnant. I'm frustrated, I'm tired, and I can't stop crying every month that I see that unwanted "friend". I know I'm driving my husband crazy and myself for that matter. I didn't think it was going to be this difficult "trying" to get pregnant, when it always seem easy to happen when I wasn't trying. Is anyone else out there experiencing this?

    Hi,
    I too have been trying to conceive and have one healthy boy. I am 32 and my husband is going to be 35. We had not problems conceiving and wonder why it hasn't happened. We have been trying for almost 2 years and started fertility treatments and it still doesn't seem to work. I too have a hard time each month and drive my husband crazy. Have you talked to your OB yet?
