Hey ladies!
​Me and my husband have been trying for baby #1 for just under a year, actively trying for the last 6 months, been off BC for four years now. I know that my weight probably doesn't help, have been working on trying to lose weight and have almost quit smoking. Did anyone else take over a year with baby #1? Has anyone used any over the counter fertility help? Did it work?
