If so, what herbs or supplements are you taking? I have heard that Red Rasberry Leaf tea is a good aid. I will be picking some up at our local organic market.
I decided on some herbs to take. I got a product called Fertility Preg which has Red Raspberry Leaf, Yellow Dock, Nettle Root, and Red Clover Blossom. They are drops that you take 3 times a day in juice or water. I also got B12 and Folic Acid Lozenges, Raspberry Leaf Tea, and the new prenatals that were given to me. I am ready to get this show on the road! lol
I am also not TTC, but after 2 losses I decided to start drinking red raspberry tea. My midwife had suggested it to me, as a way to strengthen my uterus and "tone" it up before I become pregnant again. This was 2 yrs ago this January. By mid-February I found out we were expected, and my rainbow baby was born 1 yr ago! I do believe the tea helped me conceive and keep a healthy pregnancy. It took us 5 months total to conceive after our 2nd loss. I hope it works for you as well as it did for me! The other thing I changed was the amount I was exercising. I began going to the gym 2-3 times a week and within 6 weeks of starting we were pregnant!

There's a pregnancy tea that has the red raspberry in it and other herbs (nettle and I can't remember what else) that I get from the natural food section @ Kroger. I also do the prenatals, and extra folic acid.

I don't know if there is a Kroger near you or not, but I get a gummy prenatal in the vitamin section that has folic acid in it. It's roughly $7 a bottle. But, if you're into the organic/natural foods you know their version is $20 plus. I do both, it just depends on my mood. I also take DHA.
I drink a herbal tea every day. Nettle leaf, raspberry leaf, dandelion leaf, alfalfa leaf and rose hips.
Plus Vit D3.
Money is so tight right now but I want to buy some gummy vitamins and folic acid.
