How long did you ttc & what age are you??? - Page 3

post #41 of 102
Knowing how long it takes some women to conceive, I almost felt guilty to get pregnant so quickly. Once DH and I decided to start trying, I stopped taking BC pills - August 8th. My last period was July 30th, and estimated conception was August 13th.

So ttc was about 5 days, give or take. I'm 27.

Wow...reading this is somewhat depressing. We're on our sixth month TTC.
I was under the impression that we weren't THAT abnormal taking this long...but now reading about almost everyone getting pg on the first try makes me worried and sad.

I'm hopeful about this month-always hopeful. But dreading getting AF again when it shows.

It's all relative...I feel bad saying we struggled for two years when so, so many struggled for so much longer and continue to do so.....

I know that it can be frustrating. It is normal to take up to a year and for some, over a year to get pregnant. DH and I are perfectly healthy individuals, non-smokers, we don't even drink (though I may go to an occasional glass of wine after this baby is born ). It took us 22 months to get pregnant with our little Nugget. I was late when we were in the urologist's office to talk about our not getting pregnant. I found out that we were pregnant a couple of days later and couldn't be happier! : Sometimes it takes a little longer for some of us, but that doesn't mean we're broken. I have friends and acquaintences who took 26 months, 11 months, and 18 months to get pregnant after actively trying. I know it's hard, but let's not have the first month conceptions get you down. We aren't born under the same star. We're all different. Soon after you get pregnant, you'll be wondering what you were ever worrying about. I know I am. All the best to you and I hope this is your month!!!

Age 31

First cycle of TTC using FAM to try after going off BC pills 5 months before. I know so many people who struggled to TTC, and even my mom said it took a year to get pregnant with me, so I anticipated a long wait. Nope! It worked out just right (with lots of DTD).

36, 1 try - miscarriage
37, 3 tries - @ 14 weeks right now

All attempts unassisted other than having a good idea of ovulation dates.

We got pg in 2 weeks. We didn't really have to try. The first time we "tried" we succeeded(SP??) and one month later found out we were pg. My DH has super swimmers lmbo! He used to be a lab tech and he checked himself once and he tested ALMOST PERFECT, maybe just a few #'s from being perfect. Our bodies are good together ANd that is scary bc I foresee us having an *oops* one of these days right after I have a baby. lol

I was 33 and mr. Applebean had a testicular tumor removed a few years ago so we were working with only one. We used FAM to avoid for over a year. We switched gears and had sex twice during my fertile period that month, resulting in my current pregnancy.

I conceived Xander last April, this summer my husband and I both celebrated our 37th birthdays and our 17th wedding anniversary. This is our first ever pregnancy! So that would be 16+ years of trying. Okay, we weren't actively trying all that time. We did for the first few years of our marriage, but when nothing was happening I ended up going on the pill for a few years to try and regulate my cycle.

Years later we ended up having testing done. I have PCOS and my dh's swimmers have problems. Because of the size of cysts on my ovaries my doctor's didn't want me taking fertility drugs. I was on Metformin for about 3 years. It did not help me lose weight but it did give me a somewhat regular cycle.

After nearly 17 years we had pretty much decided that we weren't going to have children (biologically, anyways) and had made peace with that. Then this spring I caught this really bad flu bug that just wouldn't go away. My husband kept asking if maybe I was pregnant to which I'd grumpily reply, "hello, infertile person here remember?! It's just a bad bug!". I finally bought some pregnancy tests just to prove to him that I wasn't pregnant. He'll never let me forget that he was right, I literally collapsed into a laughing/sobbing pile in our hallway after the pee stick came out positive!

First time it took two years. I was 37 when baby was born.

Second time it took 1-1/2 months. I'll be 40 when this one's born.

It took 1 1/2 years to conceive my first I was 20 and 1st cycle for the second I'm 22 now
post #60 of 102
With ds, I was 23 when he was conceived, and we ttc'ed about 2 years, with 20 mos of that charting, etc.

With this pg now, I'm 28 and we weren't ttc. We were abstaining when I was fertile and w/d the rest of the time. One day when I was fertile, somehow we didn't abstain or w/d. And that resulted in a pg
