moissamight :  everyone is different. I know a few women who got pregnant in their mid-30s very quickly (1-3 cycles) but I also had a friend who started trying at 25 and it took 4 years. You never know.

21 when I got pregnant with my son, was not trying to get pregnant (was actively trying to prevent), 26 when I got pregnant with my current pregnancy, got pregnant on our 2nd cycle trying. 

This is probably our last baby, but we’ve possibly discussed a 3rd, if we end up moving forward with a 3rd, it wouldn’t be until our 2nd is 3 years old+ (spread out daycare expenses)

MrsBtoBe14 :  

I am 29 and my husband is almost 35. We started trying December 2017 and here we are with no baby yet….14 months and 12 cycles due to longer ones. Start trying early, as you don’t know how long it will take. Count it as a blessing if you do conceive early, but it may not happen like that. There are a lot of us who have been waiting for a little miracle for so long ♥️ But probably not a lot who will necessarily share.

missviolet92 :  About fertility being linked – definitely not in my case. I’m one of 4, my sister has 6, my mom is one of 5, her mom one of 9. I’m 30, 29 when we started trying, healthy, all normal tests (my Darling Husband as well), and we’re on cycle 17.

We started at 30/32. Still trying 2 years later after an ectopic pregnancy ruptured my tube in Feb 2017. One failed IVF cycle under our belt… will try IVF once more, if that doesn’t work then we’ll probably just switch to NTNP and see what happens.

missviolet92 :  It is not inherited. Some issues can be passed down but just because a mother may get pregnant right away doesn’t mean her daughter or sons will. My older sister was an “oops” when my mom was 18 and my younger sister and I took little to no effort to come along. That is absolutely NOT how it is for us girls now. My younger sister doesn’t ovulate at all and they’re doing medicated cycles and have been trying total for 2 years. My older sister isn’t trying and hasn’t been. And I’m going on 14 months and don’t ovulate all the time. Mind you, we have a strong male infertility we didn’t know about for a while but still. It’s not super easy. And I don’t mean for this to scare you or to sound mean. Just throwing reality out there.

MrsBtoBe14 :  CD= cycle day. I chart my temps and use OPKs (google it for more info) to confirm ovulation.

I am 32 with no major health problems and he is 33 and it took us 4 months. I also have Type 2 Diabetes and take a drug called Metformin which causes me to ovulate regularly. Unfortunately we lost the baby at 5 weeks. It’s comforting to know it didn’t take us too long so hopefully next time it will be quick too.

Currently pregnant with baby number one. I conceived when I was 26 after two cycles of trying with OPKs. 

 

We would like 1 to 2 more kids but we will see how this one goes…

I was 31 when I conceived my first pregnancy on the first month trying.  Unfortunately I miscarried that pregnancy.  Waited a cycle and tried again.  Got pregnant on the first month again, this time with a successful pregnancy.  I am 34 now with one child, and we are about to try for a second.  I have in my head that it will happen right away again, but that probably will not actually be the case.  We are pretty sure we just want two kids.

MrsBtoBe14 :  I don’t normally comment on these, cause well I can’t really answer your question. I haven’t conceived yet. We’ve been trying since October 2016. I had just turned 26 when we started trying, so it’s not like I was older or anything. I had been off BC for almost a year before we started trying, taking prenatals for 3 months before we started. I had absolutely no reason it would take us long at all. My mom had 4 children very easily. All 3 of my sisters have gotten pregnant at least once. So my train of thought was “this isn’t going to take long at all!” 

That obviously isn’t the case. So far I have had surgery to remove endometriosis, have had 3 IUI’s, and have done 5 months of just the fertility meds all to no avail. And that doesn’t include the year before all of that, that we were trying naturally. Now we are saving for IVF and hoping that will be what finally brings us our baby.

I can answer your other question though, we want two kids.
