I’m 36. We were NTNP starting Jan 2019, and got pregnant near the end of the month. We weren’t tracking or anything  because I didn’t want any pressure so early on in the process. Still very early (haven’t even had my first appointment yet) so I’ve got my fingers crossed that everything will turn out okay.

Both 29, first cycle NTNP off BCP. LO was born 2 days before my birthday! 🤗 Probably one and done, but if dh can convince me, we might try for one more at some point…

We are 22 and have solely used the pulling out method and it took us 11 months to conceive. We really want to have 3 children close in age

It took us 5 cycles, which included a miscarriage and two CPs. I was 32 when I conceived our healthy baby and dh was 36.

Our first was conceived on the first cycle of NTNP. I was 25. I’m pregnant again at 27 and this one took three cycles, but we missed my fertile window of the second cycle due to my husband traveling for work so I really only count two. We did not temp or use OPKs, just kept track of my period and had regular sex. I am content to be done after two, but my husband wants to keep the door open for three. We will see!

33 with my first. He was a surprise. 36 with our second- went off the pill and got pregnant the next month. 37 with our third- also somewhat of an accident- went off the pill for a week (it’s a long story), and due with this baby in July.   We may have another but as older parents- were going to play it by ear.

I’m 39, and it took us 4 cycles of actively trying (checking my temperature each morning, doing urine tests for ovulation, timing intercourse) to conceive my first child. Currently 25 weeks.  No previous pregnancies. Hoping for 2 kids total.

It took us 3.5 years to conceive.  We had moved on to adoption by the time we actually ended up pregnant.  I was 36 at the time of conception and delivery.  We now have three kids since we adopted twins. We are done having children now.

nameless :  Not everyone has the luxury of starting earlier. I would have loved to, but didn’t meet my husband until my 30s.

One cycle at 28 years old. 

We haven’t agreed on how many children yet. I am leaning towards my daughter being an Only Child, but my husband is trying to talk me into another one.
