Talking Trying to Conceive. . .

And, it's my first attempt. Is there any advice from the professionals on things I could possibly do to increase the chance? I just got off of my BCP, which was Yaz, and I had my doc tell me to go ahead and get started right away. Also, she did tell me that Progesterone (spelling?) thickens the lining of your uterus. And, from what I understand, Yaz is a progest based BCP.
Also, to soothe the DB (dear boyfriend)'s nerves, he's been running around trying to find ways to make sure we do get pregnant. Are there any surefire things DB can do?
Also, had a miscarriage about a year ago on an unplanned, and I don't want it to happen again. I think I have already pinpointed the problem, but I'm not sure.
Well, thanks for anyone's advice. It's appreciated.

I hope so as well. I am anxious to get started. My body is screaming louder and louder at me as days pass. DBF is starting to choose out names, and we have settled on a couple.
For a girl, either Brooklyn Olyvia or Chloe Olyvia. (Olyvia is my great grandmother's middle name)
And for a boy, either Thomas Elias or Robert Thomas. (Thomas Elias is my mom's grandpa's name, and Robert is my grandpa's name. Also, Thomas is my baby brother's middle name.)
He wants me to name a girl Olyvia Grace, since his mom's name is Grace. He wants me to name a boy Damien Thomas (ick), because his middle name is Damien.
I did finally talk to my midwife, who told me I shouldn't have complications conceiving because the reason I miscarried was due to my idiocy and inexperience in bearing children.
Fortunately, my mom is willing to be an in-house babysitter when mama needs to take a hot bath. And my brother is SO proud. He's dug out all of his baby books from when he was young, and wants me to have a little boy so he can play baseball with him.
Okay, so this was a long post.
Good luck to you, Janie, and I hope things happen quickly for you as well! Hopefully, we will both be joining the April or May due date boards!!!

I hope you have no problems TTC! Don’t get discouraged if it don’t happen right away the first month or two after you stop taking BCP may case your cycle to be off track! I wish you luck, it sounds like you have lots of support!

I too am TTC and have heard tons of different ways to help, but here are some that I do

Start taking prenatals now. Also, the healthier you are, the better

Try getting an Ovulation Predictor kit. That way you will know when you have an LH surge and are the most fertile

Best of luck to you and DB
