Welcome to PP, I'm Zoe mum to Jack and Charlotte.
Deciding to start a family is exciting, but don't put pressure on yourself wanting to get pregnant straight away, until it happens you have no idea how long it will take you to get the positive result. Just make sure you eat a good balanced diet and go easy on the alcohol or even cut it out completely. Try to stay relaxed about it all, getting stressed can delay conception.
Good luck and keep us posted.

I really hope you get the result relatively soon. Jack took us three months to conceive and Charlotte was a shock!! I was lucky really, sometimes it takes longer. Just enjoy it!!

Like Zoe said try and stay relaxed about it. People usually fond that if it is taking a while to get pregnant then they stress about it but as soon as they stop thinking about it 24/7 it happens.
Hollie was conceived in the 1st month with us so we were really lucky. But i now how much it takes over your life thinking about it. Keep it fun because even if it doesnt work in the first month its still fun trying he he.

Hi Lexi Welcome to PP! I don't really have anymore advice for you but i totally agree with everything the others have said. It unfortunately took me a while to conceive my first but like Zoe and Karen said as soon as we relaxed and went on holiday (!) it happened!!!
Oh also i don't want to get into too many details but raising your legs and bum after the deed is supposed to help!!!!!
Good Luck and keep us posted!!!!!!

Colic & reflux! Help!
Hi all! My LO is 3 weeks & 1 day. Around 11 days ago, I recognised signs of colic and my HV confirmed she believed he was suffering with colic too. It always began at 9pm for a few hours. We changed baby bottles and began giving him Infacol. We noticed a slight improvement but he was still screaming! We battled on as Infacol takes a while to work. Sunday evening he began crying at 6pm and it carried on all night and at 10:30am on Monday, I took him to the doctors, still crying and screaming 😭. The minute the doctor called us, he fell asleep. She thinks he also has reflux so gave us infant gaviscon. She recommended us trying Colic cow & gate also. So, we began with Gaviscon and started Colief instead (the dr didn’t rate Infacol).. with the new milk and he slept wonderfully! The bout of colic that evening lasted 20 mins and that was it! Next night (last night), it came back with a vengeance. He’s screamed all night, he’s refused milk, he’s drank the odd 2oz here and there, he’s straining and crying, his legs and arms are wild, he eventually managed a poo which was brown and sticky! 💩 it’s now 10am and he has finally fallen asleep - in my arms. Ive booked him in with a chiropractor as I’ve heard great things and I’m still using colic bottles and Colief.. please can someone offer any advice. I’m at a total loss. I’ve not slept in a fortnight and I really can’t watch him in agony until this stops - in a few months time 😳😩
