    First BFP was 3 months but wasn’t a sticky baby. This was our first month trying after MC so hopefully it’ll happen again soon and stick this time!

    I got pregnant in the 4th month we were trying.. at the time it seemed like it was taking a long time, but looking back 4 months is nothing!

    We didn’t use protection ONCE.  Not even a month, just one night.  I’m hoping baby two comes that easily!  It’s been five years and we’re thinking about TTC this summer.

    12 cycles exactly – came off the pill at end of December and fell the following December.  OH suffers ejaculation issues and only managed 3 times that whole year.  Two were in my fertile period and the second conceived this little bubba.

    All good info. We haven’t discussed when we’ll start TTC with our first child, but know that it may take longer than either of us think. I’m 34 and have been on BC since I was 21, and he’s 36. I know they age isn’t a factor, but with the luck we have in life – it probably won’t be in our favor – so I am hoping to start sooner than we may want to, in case it does take longer than we thought it would. I’m anticipating a year, honestly.

    I wasn’t even trying. Didn’t really think I wanted kids. The only two times my ex husband ejaculated in me, I found out I was pregnant a few weeks after. So yeah, 1-3 months. I believe I am very fertile.

    Monny:  this makes me feel better!  I’m 37 too and we decided to start trying this month.  🙂  My doctor said to give it three months and if nothing to come in. She wants to be proactive about helping us because of my age.  Which is nice, but… also makes me feel old haha

    HappyORBride:  My friend missed one pill at 37 and still fell! Quite a shock as took her over a year with her first baby. You never know – good luck 🙂

    We tried for a few months and nothing.  Now my periods are super irregular (haven’t had one since February) so we’ve given up for the time being.  I’m going to talk to my doctor during my annual on Friday and see what she recommends. 

    I also think these polls are skewed towards people who conceived really quickly vs. real life numbers.  People who conceived easily are usually happier to share the details than those who are struggling.   I usually try to avoid these threads as I start to feel resentful towards those who get it on the first shot and that’s not fair of me.

    It took us 2 months the first time (MC); 6 months the second time (DD); 1 month the third time (currently PG).  I was 36, 37, and 38 yo.
