    it took us 6 cycles the first time which ended In MC at 8 1/2 weeks, then another 4 cycles after the initial 2 cycle wait after a MC…. I’m now 17 weeks.

    I’ve never been on birth control, but we do chart (that’s how we were tta) and so we knew when I was fertile.  We didn’t specifically try for the fertile days, but with our usual schedule, we hit them well and good and got pregnant that first month.  That one ended in a super early mc (right after we confirmed it w/the doctor), and now we’re ttc again after a three month break.  

    I think a lot of it depends on how often you two DTD.  If you’re an every week or two couple, you could miss it.  If you’re more frequent…hard to miss entirely 😉

    FutureMRS3lastnames:  My husband and I had the exact same conversation right before we got married. Since we definitely didn’t save ourselves for marriage (hehe), our wedding night was going to be the first night where we would just do our thing and see what happens.

    So, we got married 17 weeks ago, and I am 15 weeks pregnant now. I had gone off of birth control about a month before the wedding, and no charting was used in the making of our baby. Every couple is different, obviously, but it’s important to mentally prepare for a determined little spermie making its way to the womb as soon as the coast is clear, because it could happen before you know it. 🙂

    Well I think it’s like a 20% chance in a given month you will get pregnant (having unprotected sex).

    40% will conceive within 3 months.

    70% within 6 months.

    and 85% within 12 months.

    I think those are your overall statistics anyway.

    My husband and I got together in March 31st, got my period April 3rd, conceived April 17th.  Now we were not trying to get pregnant, and yes we were having unprotected (stupid) sex.  So for us, we conceived very quickly.

    DH and I got pregnant the first and only time we BD without using a condom. We lived in different cities at the time so once we decided to stop preventing we were only together one weekend and that’s when it happened. Good Luck!

    FutureMRS3lastnames:  Hmm…I’m not really sure.  I guess I just thought it was everyone who wasn’t using protection (so both charting/tracking and NTNP) but not sure where I got that from.  Like I was under the impression that your odds are 20% in any given month when you simply have sex without protection.

    I went off BCP (after 16 years) and got pregnant in one shot two weeks later, sometimes I think people are more quick to answer when it happens quickly so I wonder if it throws off the poll…which is why I like to look at the overall statistics 🙂

    ETA the second time around I made sure I was religously taking my prenatals everyday. It’s really important in the early stages of when the baby is developing. So if your not already taking it make sure to grab some OTC prenatals.

    We were off birth control for one year and were using the pullout method (knowing it’s far from 100% effective). When we decided to NTTN, it happened pretty much immediately, that month. We didn’t track ovulation or time anything.
