Why can't I fall pregnant? I've been trying naturally for over 6months. I have low iron but I've been pregnant once before so I know I can have babies.

Are night wakings in infants other than those for feedings common and should the infant be helped to fall back asleep or left to 'cry it out'?
Do to a fall, my 6 week old infant needed a cat scan. What are the side effects of a scan at such a young age? The dr said cancer but how soon?
Wouldn't worry: There is a tiny increase in cancer risk later in life children who have a bunch of ct scans. We're exposed to unavoidable natural radiation every day, and compared to this, the dose you get from a worthwhile ct scan is trivial.
