There must be something in the air, or the water, because I have been getting loads upon loads of emails all asking the same thing.
What are some tips on getting pregnant?!
It used to be that people just had sex and that was that, but now a days there are ovulation kits, early response pregnancy tests, and all sorts of information on the web to make you freaked out that you yourself could be infertile if you don’t get pregnant within a certain window of time, or before your overly fertile sister-in-law.
