Trying to conceive is most straightforward if you are heterosexual and in a relationship. That's to say, trying is straightforward there is no guarantee of pregnancy.

Are you about to start trying for a baby, or have you already been at it for a while? Your "avoid" list has just changed dramatically!
Have you turned into a monster since your positive pregnancy test? Do you feel ecstatic one minute, like crying the next, and really angry after? Welcome to the crazy world of pregnancy!
The decision to try for a baby is huge and the first milestone of many. What milestones can you expect to go through after you take that first step?
You would probably rather avoid a cesarean if you could, but this now almost routine procedure is also a lot less frightening than a forceps or vacuum delivery to many women.
Do you think you might be pregnant? That's only to be expected if you are trying to conceive and have already ovulated during this cycle. Assuming you and your partner are both fertile, every month offers you a new opportunity.
Have you reached your third trimester? Chances are that you are starting to feel a little but uncomfortable now, as well as a little bit impatient. You've probably made all your important baby-related purchases and prepared your baby's nursery.
Pregnancy can sure bring challenges that you don't have when you are not expecting. The early stages of pregnancy tend to come with many hurdles that are quite a struggle to get through. Morning sickness, fatigue and mood swings immediately come to mind.
