  • Hi JandJ,

    Have you tried SMEP? (sperm meets egg plan?) It's especially for women who have been pregnant before although anyone can try it!
  • Hi, Opalfruit.. I have never heard of SMEP!! How would i find out more and would i have to pay for it? Thanks for getting back to me... xx
  • Yes the SMEP is very popular on here but I have never tried it. Someone had a good website for this so maybe if you post a topic asking about this specifically you may get somewhere.

    Lots of luck xxx
  • Hi hun, sorry to hear you've not had any success for your 2nd pregnancy.

    I havent had a baby before so no advice to offer really just to echo the SMEP plan is meant to be really effective.

    Do you temp or use a CBFM?? clearblue fertility monitor might be worth you giving that a try too.

    Good luck hun and welcome to BE xx
  • In a nutshell:

    BD every other night starting Day 8
    Buy 10 ovulation predictor kit sticks
    Begin ovulation testing on Day 10
    When test is positive, BD that night, plus two additional nights in a row
    Skip one night, then do one last BD for luck!
    Take a home pregnancy test 15 days after your ovulation test was positive, if your period has not begun
    If your ovulation test never goes positive, continue "trying" every other night until Day 35, then do a pregnancy test if your period has not begun.
