Just wondering really!

I'm 33 and have just had my first ds. We know we want another and definitely don't want a big age gap.

I'm worried by all the recent publicity about how many couples really struggle to get pregnant with their second baby.

I mean bubs not buns - it's been a bit of a week for me.

35. 15 months and one MC. Got pg after about 5 minutes for DS1, aged 31.

One time and I was 33 and had endemetriosis! Dh must have strong swimmers! We were so lucky because I didn't think I would get another ds!

Am 35. Overall took 1 us year to conceive our second but that includes 3 miscarriages along the way.

11 months and GP appointment made to investigate. I'm 31 and DH was 29 when we concieved this time.

DD we conceived very quickly so it was a shock this time!

About 10 months, I was 36 and have PCOS though.

MamaBlue4 Wed 03-Apr-13 20:22:12

I'm 23.

We waited until ds1 was around 2 until we tried for our 2nd and within weeks of stopping using the condoms, I was pregnant. Then on our 3rd; a month of trying then I was pregnant with dts. Now, we started trying on 24th Feb, and I'm 5+1 weeks pregnant.

Apparently, I'm very fertile.

Two months, and I was 29.

windywoo26 Wed 03-Apr-13 20:37:38

Am 35 and took 1 month this time. Took 9 months (after mc) with DS and had taken 9 months to get pg then. Assumed it would take a little while again.

6 months the first time I got pregnant, one night the second time grin

Ds1 - 2 months aged 32. Ds2 (24 weeks pg) 7 months aged 35 - had some hormone imbalance issued caused by pill with pg2 but resolved by homeopathy (I think but possibly mother nature)

First time it took one try and I couldnt believe it. I am always on schedule with my cycle, 28 days and right before first baby turned one, I thought lets try now because I want them close in age. My cycles were not completely regular bc I was still breastfeeding. However, we managed again on very first try (and one shag!) I couldn't believe it. I was nervous about the second fertility as well, bc there are a lot of articles. Now, just crossing fingers everything goes well. I am 10 weeks 5 days. Oh and I'm 30 now.

DD conceived aged 30 and DS conceived aged 32 (also had a miscarriage aged 30). All 3 pregnancies achieved by having sex just the once.

Good luck!

9 months, I was 29. Took 14 months to get pregnant with DS1 so was prepared for a wait!

CitizenOscar Wed 03-Apr-13 21:02:49

33, about 4 months. Felt like longer!

SqueakyCleanNameChange Wed 03-Apr-13 21:03:07

2 months, aged 34. First DC took 18 months.

VerySmallSqueak Wed 03-Apr-13 21:06:05

9 months from birth of DD1 to conception of DD2.
I was 37.

Funions Wed 03-Apr-13 21:08:10

Had 1st at 33, followed by 18 months very much contracepted, then 2nd at just turned 38, TTC roughly 2.5 years for no2, with a couple of early mcs.

atrcts Wed 03-Apr-13 21:08:38

My first took about 7 months at age 35 and my second was first try at 39 years old!

TippiShagpile Wed 03-Apr-13 21:09:42

Got pg when ds1 was 3 months old. And I was EBF. And I was 36.

Catchingmockingbirds Wed 03-Apr-13 21:17:17

I conceived at 24, after about 9 months of trying but that ended in a mc at 8 weeks. I then conceived again a week later and she's currently wriggling around in my tummy and is due next month. My first I conceived at 18.

louby86 Wed 03-Apr-13 21:17:37

Didn't answer fully, sorry. I was 24 when I conceived the first time and 26 this time.

Guitargirl Wed 03-Apr-13 21:21:25

I was 30 when we conceived DC1 and 32 conceiving DC2. Both times conceived within one month and the second time around I was still breastfeeding.

shallweshop Wed 03-Apr-13 21:24:42

It took 6 months to conceive DS and I was 41 with only one fallopian tube left following a previous ectopic. There is a 25 month age gap between him and DD.
