    Well, so far I get pregnant 100% of the time. We miscarried our 1st cycle trying then got pregnant again 20 days later. It was quite a rollercoaster, since I only got my 1st BFP at 16dpo on the FAINTEST FRER. The second time around I got a very faint (practically evap) cheepie at 14DPO and I was devestated. It took me WEEKS of bloodtests to feel good about the possibility of being pregnant again.

    @Peffy:  It’s working out so far & I’m feeling much more positive now. I just wanted to give some context to the numbers. Just cause some people get pregnant right away, doesn’t necessarily mean the grass is greener.

    I’ve seen a lot of bees get their BFP’s at close to the 1 year mark, without medical intervention. It just takes longer for some people.

    My husband and I conceived our first after 2.5 years but it ended in a blighted ovum.  By the time we conceived this one (currently 29 weeks) we had been trying 3.5 years.

    We conceived after our first “oops” moment. We even took Plan B within 12 hours and it didn’t work. Our baby is determined to be here! Apparently we’re those people who will get pregnant folding each others underwear.

    We started trying in December and I got preggers in January. Talk about shocked!  I spent almost 8 years actively NOT trying to get pregnant, so it kind of freaked me out.
