Struggling...

My Fiancee and I have been together for 3 years now and we want to add a new addition to our new family. We are both in top health and I'm able to conceive, the problem is that its just not happening... I've been stressing that i may be underweight or that my body is too small to carry? i weigh 50.1 Kg's and am 1.6 m tall (short lol). what should i do? We have been trying for a year now and nothing has happened, except for 2 miscarriages. Both before 3 months.

I would say to stop thinking about it. Just have more fun, enjoy being newlyweds and it'll happen before you know it. Most women get pregnant after they stop trying so hard. Also, start yourself on some prenatal vitamins, or at least folic acid, and if you want to improve your chances of carrying a baby to term, start on some chewable baby aspirin(81 mgs). Doctors have said that it helps the baby implant better, and stay there.

Good luck hun!

The women on my side of the family have had problems related to birth - that the hips don't move to deliver naturally. So C-Sections have been the only options.
