Hi, Ehill9, my friend tried for 8 years to get pregnant until the doctor said the ONLY way was ivf! She didn't believe in it and submitted to the thought that she would never have a baby (which kind of killed her) within 7 months she was pregnant... the same doctor asked what she did... which was nothing.
Her little boy is now 18 months and she just found out she is pregnant again after not trying.
I also went through a few years of just miscarrying... it drives you mad wondering what is wrong with you... one day I just felt that weight was lifted from my shoulders and the next month I fell pregnant with my son! They didn't stop coming after that.
I think the stress of wanting it to happen, and it not happening as quickly as you think it should, actually can stop us getting pregnant (weird I know).
I don't think I am finished either... but if it doesn't happen I won't stress myself over it and concentrate on the ones I have... FYI mine are closer together my eldest is 13 and my youngest is now only a couple of weeks... I educate them all so I probably have more to concentrate on lol.
You are doing all the right things and doctors don't always know what they are talking about. My little one was born healthy and happy, I didn't bleed to death etc and am still here, I felt like I could run a marathon afterwards... so definitely wrong about me.
I hope you get that little bundle soon, TBH I am looking forward to grandkids lol. I get to cuddle and do all of that... just without the horrible stuff that goes with it.
