Trying to conceive

After a month or so away from this site I am back and need some motivation!!!
So here is my story.....we have a 3 year old, and started ttc no 2 in Nov 2011. In may 2012 i got preg but had early miscarriage/chemical. Although I was gutted we decided to try again this month. Stupidly started testing around cd28 (normal cycle anywhere between 26 and 30 days) ,I just felt pregnant again i dont know why ..anyway i did various tests and got faint positives, on cheapies and also on tescos own brand including one of the strongets faint lines(if that makes sense) which came up in 3 mins. BUT I then started getting negative tests again and AF arrived yest on CD33! Im not even thinking about what happened this month (cant face thought of another chemical)so im just taking it as a normal late period, although that doesnt explain all the faint positives!!!
So we are now into month 9 and really want to do everything I can this month to have our best possible chance of conceiving!!!
Can anyone offer any help, advice for long term ttc?
My plan this month is :
keep taking folic acid

hi mummy ive been trying to conceive sine dec 2011, doesnt help that my cycles are over the place aswell, bu this month ive basically dtd every other day throughout the whole cycle and then every day when i was due to ovulate, exercise is meant to increase your chances but not too much, vitamins, folic acide, im also trying conceive plus lube x

it is so hard!! i must admit, i feel ive been doing it completely wrong, as anytime i thought i was ovulating i wasnt!! my cycles are so messed up from decemeber to february they were 35 days then from march to april they were 40 days then last month it was 47!!! last month the week after i thought i ovulated, didnt get a pos on ov test but the week after i thought i had i had like the stretchy clear cm sorry tmi, and the sore boobs and achiness and pains and i thought it might of been implantation, but that was ovbiously my ovulation!!! lol its such a hard game trying to target it which is why ive dtd every other day this month.
ive been doing ov tests the last couple of days and slowly day by day they are getting a bit darker but none of them are as dark and the control line yet, but based on a 40 and 47 cycle im due to ovulate any time from wednesday just gone to next wednesday.
exercise is good can increase your chances but dont do it everyday mummy060409 as to much exercise can delay ovulation!! xxxx

best of luck this month mummy; sounds like you've had a rough time? I'm off to docs this month (been trying for 9 months now) just so I know everything is as it should be as my cycles are pretty regular. I'm sure we missed 2 crucial days of ewcm this month so it's my own fault! will try bd more especially around ov time and NOT obsess in the whole 2ww. I would love to go back to work after the summer hols and announce I'm pg!
I'd just get bd'ing if I were you missymoox! I hope your cycles settle down for you, it must be hard not knowing where you are from month to month?
good luck ladies xx
