Can you use the verb 'intentar' to say 'I am trying'. My friend tells me that I can not because I am not the intencion but generally I don't like to take one persons word for something, so if anybody could clarify this that would be great cheers.

I looked up "estoy intentando" online and got lots of hits:

Estoy intentando quedarme embarazada...

Estoy intentando de nuevo...

Estoy intentando crear una...

Estoy intentando aprender español...


I would also use "Estoy tratando de....." (the "de" always goes with it)

Estoy tratando de averiguarlo...

Estoy tratando de encontrar.....
