Hi all - I am brand new here (this is my very first post) and have just decided to start TTC this month.
I am 29, my husband is 31... I was wondering how long it took all of you to get pregnant (if you have managed)?

Age 33, 6 weeks after we stopped contraception. We were very lucky.

DC#1: First month

DC#2: Second month

1st - first month (I was 28)
2nd - second month (I was 30)
3rd - unplanned while taking the mini pill?! blush (At 33)

And I will add that I'm incredibly rubbish at dealing with TTC. With #2, I was freaking out when it didn't happen immediately again! I admire women who have fertility problems or who take longer and who don't turn into bitter, hateful bitches (because seriously, that's what I was like).
Good luck to you OP!

First month. About to start trying again and expecting it to be quick but who knows. Fingers crossed!

At 39 it took 13 months I was obsessed with my temperature etc. at 41 it took 5 months this time - am 6 weeks pregnant now. The worry of infertility was overwhelming and I've had friends who have been through years of pain so I do count my blessings

first time: first month but had termination for t21.age 33

second time: few months after termination so didnt really know what was going on with cycles but happened as soon as i used ov sticks. chemical pregnancy. age 34

third time (hes 2): month after chemical preg. age 34

fourth time (currently 34 wks): started trying in feb, relieved it didnt work that month as got offered new job. waited until id been there a month, started trying in mayand it worked. age 36.

i feel lucky that we have conceived easily, but have had our heartache through the loss of our first.

Same month as vasectomy reversal 1st time. Within a couple of months of stopping using condoms 2nd time although not trying particularly hard what with having a 1yr old still feeding at night.

First try!

I was 32 and my partner 40, I'd been three years on the depo injection though it's been over a year since I went off. From what I read, with my age and such, I was expecting a small delay before conceiving, but to my shock and surprise, I conceived straight away.

busylizzie76 Fri 20-Dec-13 23:47:39

14/15 cycles for dc1 (I was 29 when I conceived)

Dc2 conceived the first cycle after giving birth to dc1 blush

1st pregnancy was an accident. Miscarried at 7 weeks. I was 32.

2nd pregnancy was planned. I'm 33 now and it took us 3-4 months to conceive (not exactly sure when my first proper cycle was after coming off pill). Am due on Jan 8th.

First time 14 months - took a while for my hormones to get back to normal after being on the pill.

Second time unplanned but miscarried.

Fell pregnant again after 2 months, all going well so far smile

Aged 27 - four months resulted in a MC and then 2 months later got my positive test. Now 17 weeks.

sdaisy26 Sat 21-Dec-13 18:01:02

Dd - 2 years + clomid (had a mc 6 months before conceiving dd)

Currently 27 weeks pg with #2, just leaving things up to fate after dd so not really expecting to get pg - I conceived but mc the first month I think I ov'd after dd (she was 10 months), then amazingly conceived this one the very next month.

Came off pill (microgynon) in June, conceived 3rd cycle. I tracked BBT on an iPhone app so knew when I was ovulating. Very blessed. I'm now 20weeks! Eeek!

ClearlyMoo Sun 22-Dec-13 07:47:06

I'm 34 and DH is 36, and we thought it would take ages as my periods are a mess left to their own devices!

MummyPig24 Sun 22-Dec-13 08:03:13

The first time I was 19 and I'm not sure how long it took as ds was a surprise but I think it was on my first or second cycle after I mucked up my pill.

Second time I was 21 and conceived 2nd go.

3rd time I was (am) 25 and conceived 2nd time again.

Beans1977 Sun 22-Dec-13 08:17:44
