Hi Anon

Thanks for your post! 

You have only been trying for three months, you need to be more patient. Most women under 35 get pregnant within a year (usually within 6 months) so I'm sure it'll happen for you. 

Make sure you are having sex when you are ovulating - this would mean the second and third weeks of your cycle. Stress is a factor in not getting pregnant so give yourself more time. 

If you are not pregnant within a year, both you and your husband should have a medical evaluation.
