we started trying to conceive with no 2 when my first little girl was 10 months old. It was not happening and I could not understand why seeing as I already knew that I had had a baby. (my first pregnancy was a 'surprise'). I was keen to try and fall straight away, as I wanted to have both children close in ages.
I went to see some naturopaths, ones which did iridology, and I went to a few till I was happy with one. I ended up finding a herbalist which I am very happy with, she gave me a mixture of herbs to take 'just to help things along'.
I was told because your body has "been through the stress of childbirth" (I don't mean that in a bad way) and then you are running around looking after a child, your hormones can be a bit out of whack and just may need a little helping hand to get things back on track.
I conceived two weeks after taking the herbal mixture after trying for 6 months. I now still continue to see the herbalist and she gives me different herbs to take for what stage I am at in my pregnancy. I must say, I do not know if the herbs have made a difference, but, this pregnancy has been so much better than my first one - very little morning sickness virtually.
Good luck and just remember to relax - a good book to read (or browse over) is the billings method. (website prev mentioned) It goes into detail about when the possible time is for you to conceive in that month, and how you can predict it by observing your own body.
Hope this helps.
