28. We NTNP for 3 months and used OPKs for 1 month, which resulted in this pregnancy! We want 2-3 kids.

First try with first baby. Now we’ve been trying since August, in essence. I’m waiting to pee on a stick now, but at the rate we’re going, I’m probably still not expecting. I don’t blame this at all on fertility, but on finding the time to give a crap, honestly. A lot of the time sleep is more appealing, lol!

ETA I was 36 when he was born, just about 38 now.  I’d have preferred not to be an old mom, but I wasn’t going to skip the chance either.

We started TTC at 28 (both of us), healthy and no known conditions. It took us 10 months and we gave birth a few days before my husbands 30th birthday and one month before my own 30th birthday. 

We want two kids. Actually, I want 10 kids but I can only sell my husband on 2.

I was 28 for daughter.. took 3 cycles. 

TTC #2. Now 30yo. I believe we’re on the 6th cycle (had 3 miscarriages this time). We only want two kids. 

My suggestion: start earlier because you never know how long it will take.

Started TTC at 29, took 5 months, will be 18 weeks on Wednesday at age 30. We want at least two- Husband is one of 4 so he thinks he wants 4 but I’m pretty doubtful that’s going to hold! But I’m an only child and would’ve liked to have had a sibling, so I’m thinking we’ll end up with 2.

34 years old and it took us almost exactly 12 months, I would like 3 kids but most likely will only have 2 due to my age. Current baby is 7 months old and I am not on birth control

Not sure what you are looking for here, but I am guessing the results here will be skewed heavily towards people that conceived rather quickly. Not many women are looking for volunteer the info that it took them 2-3-4 years after reading about people who conceived in a few months. Just another perspective. For the record, I’m 34 and have been TTC my first for 3 years, 2 years of which we’ve been doing treatment (6 rounds of IUI, 3 rounds of IVF)

Around 3 months with each pregnancy, but 2/3 ended in miscarriage. 

We started TTC when I was 30, had one mc, then got pregnant again shortly after with our daughter. Started trying again when I was 35, conceieved right away but ended in mc. Hoping things are getting back to normal so we can try again shortly.

We are hoping for 2 children.

littleanchor :  … we’ve been TTC for 20 cycles now, and waiting to get into our local fertility clinic (6 month long wait). I was 32 when we started TTC and I’m 34 now. 

Not sure what you’re looking for in this thread, it can normally take up to 10-12 months for a healthy fertile couple to conceive.

I was 31 when I got pregnant with #1, and it took 4 cycles. Started trying for #2 at 33 and it took just over a year, one miscarriage at 12 weeks, and one chemical pregnancy. On the fence about a third. If we do decide to go for it we’d probably start trying when #2 turns one, so right around when I turn 36.

I was 29 and he was 31 when we starting trying. Took 5 cycles NTNP and 8 TTC, so 13 months in total. I would like two kids but we’ll see after this one is born in May.
