  • poll: If it took you 6+ months to conceive your 1st, how long did it take to conceive your 2nd child?

    1-3 months/cycles naturally

    4-6 months/cycles naturally

    6-9 months/cycles naturally

    9-12 months/cycles naturally

    12+ months/cycles naturally

    We got pregnant without TTC!

    We used Clomid/Femara/IUI/IVF/etc. to get pregnant with our second

    Any other option I'm not thinking of!

    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)

    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 😂

    SeaOfLove :  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.
