I got pregnant on our second try with my first at 29 and again at 31 our first time I ovulated after our first baby, on my first try, and we only did it once.

OP, read this: http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/07/how-long-can-you-wait-to-have-a-baby/309374/

A lot of the really scary stuff comes from bad data. the most cited numbers come from a population study of french women in the 17th to 19th centuries, which is a flawed sourge for predictive calculations for all sorts of reasons. Better, modern data that only includes women actually trying to conceive is much more reassuring.

There is very little difference in fertility between the late 20s and early 30s. Most women in their early 30s are still very fertile.

We started to TTC when i was 34. I got pregnant the second cycle. Unfortunately, that ended in MC. I turned 35 shortly after that, then got pregnant again after 4 cycles. I am now 37 and have a 15 month old son, and am in cycle 1 of TTC for number 2. Fingers crossed it happens quickly again.

I am stunned how many people got pregnant first/second try here. Don’t stress if you don’t. For every healthy couple that conceives first try, it takes another 12 cycles. I was one of the 12 cycles and praying for a sticky bean. I am 9/10 weeks and saw a heart beat so hoping all will be well. 

 

Should have said I am 32 and started trying at 31!

I got pregnant on my first try at 30 1/2. Unfortunately, I miscarried that pregnancy and the next two.  I’m hoping for better luck with this one; I’m now almost 32!

Feist:  Thanks for sharing the article! I have read it before and forgot to save it. I am not pregnant not trying yet, but I always find it fascinating that people are so freaked out by numbers and ages. Yes, there is a decline, but it is not like you turn 30 and your body abruptly starts being less fertile at midnight. Same thing when turning 35. There are so many other factors that influence fertility, too, like health and weight etc., but they are barely ever mentioned. 

I am glad for all of you, who got pregnant so quickly, I hope it will work for me, too :p.

DH and I got pregnant our first cycle trying but it ended in a CP. We were successful again cycle 3 and I’m currently 8 weeks pregnant. I thought we would struggle so you never know!

I am 29 (will be 30 in four months). We are currently in our 3rd cycle TTC. Hoping for our BFP this month!

My sister got pregnant 2nd cycle TTC when she was 31.

My SIL took 7 cycles to get pregnant at 29.

It’s so difficult to know what is going to happen. Wishing you luck!

i’m 31 and just found out it happened on our first try. i had to negatives with clear blue digital and thought it was all in head. then, i tried a FRER. very clear positive. 🙂 i definitely thought it would take longer being over 30, but that wasn’t the case.

anonbebe88:  Well, I’ll be 33 next month.  This was the first month that we hit the fertile window (we were actually supposed to be trying to avoid this month, so we’ve been avoiding the FW.)  We hit O-3 and nothing else.  And today I got 2 pink lines.

i’m 30 and while we did get pregnant our first TTC cycle, it was a chemical and we’re now in our 5th cycle trying since then. it doesn’t always happen immediately, contrary to what many people in this thread are saying.
