If you are a guy in a couple's situation where a couple is trying to get pregnant, I think your role in this situation would be, number one, be supportive. I think a lot of times there is a lot of stuff, no different than she is going through. Things you can only control so well. You can try to manage the process better. Always provide a support for her when she is angry, when she is upset, when she is sad. Just be there for her. I think it's very important to just hold her hands. Take her out to some beautiful countryside where you can take walks, where there is going to be beautiful scenery and fresh air. I think it's always important to try to diffuse the stress level because trying to get pregnant is always stressful. It's important to have a little laughs. Don't watch any sad movies. Get some really crazy, stupid comedies and watch them. Second, don't take it too seriously. You want to be serious, you just don't want to be too serious. You've got to listen. A lot of times we listen, but we don't hear. The very first thing is you want to provide lots of support to your partner. That is something that she may not be aware of it. She will be aware when it is not there. It is very important to give her that support because that support is going to help her to get pregnant much easier.
