With my daughter I conceived two weeks after finishing my last pack of birth control pills. She is now 14 months old, and we haven't used any birth control since her birth. We haven't been really trying, but not preventing. So who knows?
The best advice I have is to try not to stress about it too much. It is way too easy to make TTC an obsession.

Good luck, mama!
Hoping for the same luck this time around!

This time we have let fate take over twice with no results. I havent been able to try in months (as he has been deployed) but there is a chance that when he comes back next month we can!

For us, we TTC for 3 months with DD, had a loss between DD and DS that was a surprise, DS was a surprise (both of these due to withdrawal as BC), and we are now on our third month of actively trying with two months of "not being careful" before that. There are many, many factors, and of course, you can improve your odds by charting and having a good understanding of your cycle. I wish you the best of luck!!!

Moving past many years of infertility and always thinking of my friends in the infertility forums.
No luck the first month - he told me to CHILL OUT, so I did, and there you go - second month was the big winner.
I really thing stressing over it had something to do with not getting pregnant the first month... so, my advice: Just go with the flow! It's more fun that way anyway.
