the first two were happy little surprises, a condom baby and a birth control baby... I figured it would be easy once we tried again... I guess things just had to wait until the time was right.
Baby #2 -- pretty much the same thing
Baby #3 -- 2 months of not trying/not preventing went by, then 5 months TTC before conceiving
I voted bullseye since that was our experience the first time. We've been charting our whole marriage though, so we knew when not preventing that we could easily get pregnant. I wasn't in the dark to what my cycle was doing.
(DD1, on the other hand, was conceived after 9 cycles of doing it ON the day of ovulation.)

Um, TMI and maybe just a whacky theory, but my cycles changed after I married DH. I charted for most of my teens years just for fertility health but when I got married everything was altered...temp, LP length...it was strange. The 1st month I wrote it off due to the stress of the wedding but it wasn't just delayed O.
With the second baby we really wanted an August birth, but then I wasn't looking at the right time. We skipped over that month, but along came the next cycle and DH and I were so baby crazy we decided to TTC instead of TTA lol.
(I know it sounds picky, but we thought if we didn't achieve an August-due baby, we'd TTA until February for a November-due baby).
Second baby was conceived the night we decided to try for another. Yes, that evening. No, I wasn't charting. Yes, we are insanely lucky.

1st month "not preventing" with this one - 2nd PPAF (We abstained during first PP cycle due to possible prolapse issues until we were cleared by the obgyn)
Lore, mom to my sweet little boy, born at home 11/09, and my spunky little girl, born in the hospital 10/10
my third was one week of trying. age 29.
but, this time around, it's been 2 full years since we've stopped using birth control (still trying). i'm with a different partner now, and i'm in my mid-30s, so that might explain part of it.
2nd pg: 1st month trying (no hormonal birth control between pregnancies)

Mid-30s. I hadn't ovulated since I was a teenager, and did so very irregularly then. My doctor suspected it may take awhile due to age and, possibly, PCOS.
