I'm looking into ways to physically prepare my body for another baby. I'm taking prenatal and eating well, but I wanted to see if there are any tricks you guys tried? Looking into anything that may help my husband and I to concieve. Thank you so much!

Exercise!! Not hard core, just basic muscle toning exercises. Especially ones that will help your core. You will be having back pain once pregnancy happens, and having a strong core/back, will help you with that. Once you are pregnant, walk. I walked alot during my second pregnancy, and my back pain wasn't as bad as it was with my 1st. If you are underweight, or on the lower side of average weight, it would help to gain a few pounds. Some women can't conceive because they are too little. Same with overweight or a little on the chubby but healthy side. If you are on that spectrum, losing a few pounds can help. Some women can concieve no matter what their weight is, but that's just what I've been told. Hope this helps! Good luck!!

Excersize sounds great! Before my son was born I had a great routine, so I'll try it now! (Thanks for the modivation) I walked when I was I was pregnant with my son but due to high blood pressure I was put on bed rest... Hated it. Delivery was still EASY though! Thank you so so much! I will start right away! Maybe a walk with my son every day! <3

I did yoga during my first pregnancy, and it really helped with the back and hip pain. I think it was the stretching. So flexibility plus what MrsBurt05 said would have fighting fit when you get your BFP!
