    how long have you been ttc?
    as far as ideal weight, as long as you fall into healthy BMI,you're fine. I have never heard of anything as ideal weight to get pregnant. Being too underweight or being obese can cause issues with fertility. if your bmi is less than 18, then you should try to gain some weight.
    use this to calculate your BMI:

      My suggestion would be to focus on your husband - enjoy being married and strengthen your relationship.

      I know its hard not to get depressed - but the only way you will relax is when you are happy. So try to seek happiness between the two of you.

      Go out together, plan trips, dinners, etc etc etc.

      For now, make it all about you two...baby will come.

        We have been ttc for 6 years now and we have done every possible thing We can to conceive.
        i felt hopeless as we don't know what to do next.
        what helped me was to accept it and be realistic .
        To be a mother is not my maqsad e hayat anymore.
        i am focussing on other things in my life, all the other blessings I have and as the previous poster said enjoying and strengthening my relationship with my husband.
        Its ok if I don't have a child, Alhumdulillah We are blessed to have so many other relations in our life so seek happiness through them.

        THat doesn't mean i have stopped praying.
        I continuesly ask Allah for this blessing as don't have any other dar to go.
        I know it hurts and I also go through phases of sadness but remember Allah is with person who do sabar.

              BMI 19 is okay, on the side of being skinny but i dont think that will affect fertility, mine has been around that too. have you tried seeing a doctor? what have they said?

                Do you have regular periods? Have you tried an ovulation predictor kit? Are you having sex around the right time of the month? Have both of you been to see a doctor and gotten checked out? What about a fertility specialist?

                    Cancerian you have been stressing about this since you got married. You need to relax and leave it on Allah. If the doc says everything is ok then give it time. Has your husband been tested? I hope Allah blesses you with naik aulad. Please stop obsessing over it and enjoy your self.

                      How long have you been married? If all is fine and you have been married for less than an year, I would suggest not go to the doctor. Relax and enjoy your time with your husband. InshahAllah, it will happen.

                            you should have your husband tested too, fertility can be due to a male problem as well. as other people said, timing is the most important thing. you need to have sex starting from a few days before ovulation up until 2 days after you ovulate. for most women with regular periods, ovulation occurs around 2 weeks before your period is due.
                            Im surprised people already started bugging you about this, you have only been married for a year! most people that I know wait for at least 2 years before planning to have a baby. try and relax, enjoy the time you have now with your husband.

                              and don't just assume your husband wants a child RIGHT NOW and is somehow disappointed/sad/mad at you, and put all this pressure on yourself. have you actually discussed this with him? as others have said, why don't you just enjoy your marriage and your time together as just the two of you before you have children? the more you obsess over it, the less likely it will happen.

                              you can order ovulation predictor kits online.
