Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Real tips that have helped you? :)

We have been trying since January to have a baby and we've had no luck. We've looked online and have taken tips and used them, but no luck! :( I really want to know what helped you guys out on getting pregnant! I've had many times happen where I thought: "Oh my gosh! This time I am! I'm pregnant!" But then I get my period. Thanks to anyone who replies! xxoo

have sex every other day, and try an ovulation predictor. you can buy them at any drugstore.
This might be a dumb question but can you buy them at WalMart?
I would highly recommend Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler--it's well written and it gives a lot of information on our cycles and the best time to get pregnant.  Good luck!! 
I second Toni Weschler's book - excellent read and very helpful.  (Didn't work for us, but that wasn't the book's fault, as it turns out.) If you're over 30, some fertility clinics are willing to screen you and your husband/boyfriend after 6 months of TTC without success.  (If you're under 30, they like you to have been trying for a year.)  Screening just involves a couple of very easy, very non-invasive tests to get an idea of whether or not everyone's parts are working in proper order, and this process is usually covered by most insurances.  Please don't be afraid to ask for a referal from your doctor to a fertility specialist once you hit those time-sensitive benchmarks!
