It took DH and myself 9 months/cycles to conceive our first child. Everyone keeps telling me it will “surprise me” and not take as long for my second. I honestly don’t want to get my hope up, because the first time was an awful rollercoaster.
So! If it took you 6+ months to conceive your first using any method, how long did it take to conceive your second naturally? Please let me know your story below!

I’m still waiting to TTC my second, but I have a friend who tried for 4 years for her first and then her second was first month off BC. Apparently pregnancy reset her ovulation as she wasn’t ovulating before #1.

Took 2.5 years to get pregnant with my son. I got pregnant naturally the cycle before we were due to start IVF for unexplained infertility.
with my daughter it only took about 6 months but I was still breastfeeding for a few of those months. I actually fell pregnant the month I really wanted to (we’d started earlier because we thought it might take a while)

That’s so perfect ❤️ I hope we can start a bit earlier than we hope to get pregnant. That would definitely be ideal. Congratulations on your baby girl!! ❤️

My son took 15 months (naturally). My daughter was the second cycle after i got my iud out.

It took me about a year to conceive my first, with a miscarriage inbetween. My second was conceived first time – and we only had sex once!
I’ve heard similar stories from lots of women.

First was 3 years and 2 rounds of IVF due to sperm issues. Second we weren’t even trying. I was still breastfeeding and had only gotten my period back a few cycles prior. Had sex once in December and now I’m 12 week pregnant. Biggest shock of my life for sure.

My first took over a year and I got pregnant via IUI. I was diagnosed with unexplained infertility as the RE had only seen one other case like mine in all the years he had been practicing – he thought it might have been something cervical
I guess big brother’s gigantic head took care of the cervix issue – My second was an oopsie 😂

We were reversed. It took no time for the first, nearly a year for the second, and for our third, two miscarriages back to back and several months in between.

That would be so crazy!! We honestly don’t have sex enough for an oopsie at this point. lol. And I’m fully preparing for it to take longer than just a couple times. C
I’m so excited for you!!! Congratulations!
That’s incredible! I love it!
Oh no, I’m so sorry! I’m fully prepared for it to take a long time again. I honestly just worry about starting the month I hope to get pregnant and it taking awhile again.

Thank you everyone for your feedback. I think I’m just going to be going with how I have been… Start trying the earliest we would possibly be ready, but not at the ideal date we would want to be pregnant since I’m not anticipating it to happen when I want.
