    Wow…I am totally shocked by the number of people on here now that conceived in 1-2 months!  I’m in the middle of month 2 and I feel like if I doesn’t work, I’ll be a bit sad.  The older poll from about 7 months ago showed much more variation.  I think I’ll be ovulating in the next couple of days, but Darling Husband is out of the country : (.  Our last time was yesterday morning, so hopefully there some strong swimmers sticking around!

    It took us 5 months. I went off BC about 3 months before we started TTC, and as soon as we started trying I started taking prenatals and eating/drinking like a preggo. No idea if that made a difference or not though. 🙂 

    I was 30 when we conceived and I’d been on BC regularly for well over a decade. While TTC I used the calendar to track my very regular cycle and it just happens that the month it worked for us we went from trying every other day during ovulation week to every day. Again – no idea if any of those things helped, might just have been our lucky month! But I do have a friend who’s 1st pregnancy took 7 months to happen, but her 2nd {using an ovulation predictor} took only 2!

    Good luck!

    I too am surprised at how quickly most people conceived.  That’s exciting and hopeful news for us – I’m hoping to be pregnant by the end of the year!!!  Thanks for sharing!

    Didn’t take us long at all! I have friends that have been trying for years and finally had to go through IVF to get pregnant. I feared that we would be the same way. But surprise! The very first month we went off birth control, we got pregnant. 🙂
