    basically me and my partner have been trying for a baby in april last year i found out i was pregnant and we was both ecstatic, i began bleeding quite early on and a early scan showed my baby had stopped growing (i was 9 weeks pregnant) and i had to terminate the pregnancy.

    we started trying again straight away and have not been able to conceive, how long do you have to have been trying before you can go to your doctor for fertility tests and also do you think the termination could have made me infertile....

    You have to try for a year before they want to test.
    The termination could have made things harder. Or you just havent hit ovulation time.

    As a side note: are you married? Im not like a religious nutter, or amish. Just curious.

    It depends on your age, females under the age of 35 are advised to try for 12 months before they consider medical help, females over 35 are advised to seek medical assitance after 6 months.

    Your body is more fertile after a miscarriage and some people fall pregnant straight away within the next few months.

    Have you been charting you ovulation cycles and have your periods returned to normal? if not I recommend buying a few ovulation tests to check everything is ok.

    Remember stress can affect fertility and make it more difficult to conceive. If you are stil grieving or very anxious as to why you haven't conceived yet this may be affecting your chances.

    Kids arent exactly cheap.

    Have you tried the old wives tales to aid pregnancy? Certain herbs? Positions? Probbaly all rubbish, but it may work in a roundabout psychological way.

    Or buying some ovulation kits?

    Cheaper than a baby, though.

    That's very true you can organise a wedding very cheaply if you only want the basics. The cheapest baby items can sometimes be a waste of money and you still have to buy so much stuff. Second hand items can be really good but you should never use a second hand mattress and they are not cheap.

    A wedding may be cheaper than a baby, but it is not cheaper than both a wedding and a baby.

    The OP wants kids for sure, so that's a given. The wedding is the only optional part, and I don't see why it particularly matters. So long as they're committed to each other and to their child, what does it matter what name you call their relationship by?

    My parents never bothered to get married. They had three children and created a happy and loving household. And while many of my friends' legally married parents came to hate each other and got divorced, mine have been together now for more than 30 years and are still deeply in love.
