getting pregnant ....

My husband is an otr trucker. He gets home most weekends... we have been trying to get pregnant for about a year.

We are kinda concerned but kinda not. We figured that with the limited opportunities to make a baby that the timing may just be off.

Did anyone else ever experience difficulties getting prego bc of this or should we b more concerned n c a specialist.

I have children from a previous marriage n i'm not able to go w him.

Is the best solution. :)

Some reasons why people have a hard time getting pregnant:

1.) Sometimes, problems are linked to such specific physiological issues as blocked fallopian tubes in the woman or low to no sperm count in the man.

The key to success: Knowing when to try -- and when it's time for more serious medical treatment.

American Society for Reproductive Medicine says if you don't get pregnant after 12 months of regular unprotected intercourse -- or six months if you are a woman over 35 -- it's time to seek help from a fertility specialist.

2.) Among the most common causes of unexplained infertility in women is "ovulatory dysfunction" -- an umbrella term encompassing problems with ovulation.

Though a number of factors can be responsible, many doctors now believe diet is one of the keys. In a study of some 17,000 women conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health, researchers were able to define a group of "fertility foods" able to improve conception odds.

Which dietary tenets were significant for increasing fertility?

Eating more monounsaturated fats (like olive oil) and less trans fats (like the kind found in many baked goods or fast foods).
Increasing intake of vegetable protein (like soy), while reducing animal protein (like red meat).
Eating more high fiber, low-glycemic foods -- like whole grains, vegetables, and some fruits, while reducing the intake of refined carbohydrates and sugars.
Consuming moderate amounts of high-fat dairy products -- like ice cream, whole milk, and cheese.

Hope this helps! ;)
