and we've had two other condom failures, which weren't apparent, resulting in my younger two : (not twins..)
during the months that our children were concieved I had a 'feeling' and my ovulation symtoms were out of control. And it seems like each time was right when I was starting to get the babybug too.
So, maybe I guess it just takes a for me..

Waiting on my SunshineBaby
TTC, we conceived after 8 months (another m/c), and we're currently at 15 months.
Clearly we do better when we're not trying.
1. we were not charting/actively pinpointing o date, it was a when it happens, it happens thng
2. we were moving cross country and were apart for the better part of a year
3. i was having maybe 3-5 cycles a year at that point.
so considering that all, not too bad.

We weren't "trying"; however, we weren't preventing...
ETS: It probably took aboout 12-18 months...
I can't say we were tta, because that one time we consciously decided against "protection", but figured there was no chance it would result in pg.
With ds, we actively ttc'ed for 20 mos, including charting, herbs, and a hsg.

My second BFP came in my 2nd cycle of actively TTC, but we lost that baby, and I conceived in the cycle following that loss (I didn't have an AF between pregnancies), so I guess another bullseye?

got pregnant with dd1 during first cycle after miscarrige
tried for 3-4 cycles with after getting AF back but while still nursing. i was charting and there was never a clear ovulation temp so quit charting at that month had obvious ewcm. dtd and whamo pregnant!
we dtd (without condom) a couple weeks ago for the hell of it even though i was pretty sure we missed the egg by a day or two so we are officially trying next week.
"Without trying or not trying, how long did it take you to conceive?" - if you're talking about unplanned pregnancies, I wouldn't know how to put a timeframe on it. Like, do you count from the time you decided you didn't want a pregnancy?
Or did you mean how long did it take to conceive after deciding to TRY to - but without using any special methods like detailed charting and BDing based on charting, taking Clomid or other methods and interventions?
If it's the latter, it took us within 1 week - possibly within 1 day - of deciding to try. I wasn't charting, never heard of it at the time, so it was sheer luck.
I'm seriously lucky. I'm 32 (almost 33) years old, I've NEVER (knowingly at least) had any pregnancy except the one I wanted, and the one I wanted was very easy. Honestly, since DH and I had taken a couple of "chances" (again, not knowing FAM so they were truly just chances) I had actually started to wonder if I wasn't fertile (even though I really didn't want to be pregnant before we decided to have DD!).
