Our first was a very unplanned 3rd month we were together baby.
#2 took 2 years of ttc
#3 took 18 months of ttc
#4 was thanks to my insurance company not covering the nuvaring anymore and me being crazy with moving and not getting to the doctor to prescribe something else and then to the pharmacy to pick it up. And after a sum of 3 1/2 years of ttc, what would 1 month off bc matter? ha!

If I get pregnant anytime in the next 5 years, it will be an IUD baby.

I got pregnant the first time we tried but had an early miscarriage. Got another BFP a month following the miscarriage which resulted in my 2.5 yo dd.

Trying for #2 now, and frustrated that I'm not pregnant yet, even though it hasn't been that long. Worried about secondary infertility since the first was so easy.

I got pregnant the first month with my first two. I got pregnant the second month of trying for #3 but miscarried. I am on month 9 of trying to conceive and no luck yet. It's been really hard since the first 2 were so easy!

I think I am just being impatient. With DS we were more relaxed because I was in my twenties and whatever happeneds, happeneds! It happened the 3rd month trying! I am into my 30's right now and I really want another baby so much!

Yup, I got pregnant on the first try both times. Hopefully it will be as easy with #3, but I'm nursing so who knows.

Well, we weren't trying with DS. We went on vacation to Disney World. He was a surprise souvenier. Go figure. I wish it were that easy with TTC#2!

both my planned babies (number 2 and 3) were first month. My 4th was before a PP cycle and with barrier birth control. My 1st I was just careless...

It took us 10 months TTC DD1, but with DD2, I caught just 4 days after I went off bc. So I guess I'm the reverse of the majority.

I think it's all just a crap shoot....With my first, I was very surprised because I was 20 and had been having unprotected sex for years with my then boyfriend/fiance. Then wham, one month out of the blue ( we did nothing differently that month) after two years, I was pregnant.
Then with baby #2, he was conceived the second month of trying.
I tried for a baby #3 for two years with my second husband and nada!! I never did get him to get an SA....but you never know...It goes to show you can never tell...

I hope to get pregnant again one day soon!

dd1 was second try (after I realized I ovulate late in my cycle), the other 3 (including our loss) were first try!

Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

#1 was second cycle. Just DTD, nothing special.
#2 was first cycle but we lost her. We weren't even trying but I noticed ewcm and wanted to see if I would get pregnant.
#3... this is my third cycle and nothing yet. Charting temps and cm, using opks.
