Hey ladies.

Am I clutching at straws or has anyone really got pg from just dtd once?

We dtd cd15 and that's it but I OVd on cd17.

Could it happen?

Taa in advance xxxx

You only need one sperm to fertilise an egg, so of course you could get pregnant after one shag. Lots of babies are conceived unexpectedly after a one off.

I hope I'm the lucky one it happens to hehe. Would love a little bro or sis for my DS xx

I've got pg 3 times from only dtd once, 1 of those ended in a mc though.

Marcheline Mon 15-Apr-13 20:19:30

It happened to us the second time around. The day I had my could removed hmm

I was expecting months of trying again. It was a shock, but I know we were very, very lucky.

Coil, not could. Sorry, 1 handed typing as 1-shag baby now asleep in my other arm.

Yup, just put my dtd-once-in-my-cycle-couldn't-possibly-be-pregnant 10 month old ds to bed.

Good luck!

I am living proof. My mum naively thought it couldn't possibly happen the absolute first time when it using a condom.....

Wookiee101 Mon 15-Apr-13 20:28:53

"When not using" I should say!

spanky2 Mon 15-Apr-13 20:30:26

Yes, luckily with ds2. I have women's problems too!

Iwish Mon 15-Apr-13 20:31:10

Wow thanks ladies for telling your stories smile. Maybe in 9 months I will have my 1-shag baby in my arms hehe xx

Themobstersknife Mon 15-Apr-13 20:34:07

Exact same situation as Beckett3, and I am as old as the hills so it definitely happens!

williaminajetfighter Mon 15-Apr-13 20:43:02

Me too. One time one weekend. Tada! Dd now 6.

Iwish Mon 15-Apr-13 20:48:35

Keep your fingers crossed for me hehe! Xx

Yep. And ridiculously early in my cycle too. Cd7 iirc.

Ttc put the fear of god into dp and there was a few times we dtd once and got pg (recurrent mc)

Iwish Tue 16-Apr-13 09:40:42

Wow cd7 is early isn't it!

You lovely ladies have given me a bit of hope smile xx

I'm sure I got pg the first time we tried, twice. If not the first time, the first month. First ended in a mmc and second time we had dd1. Dd2 took 5 months, and I was very blase the first month, it didn't enter my head I wouldn't be pg.

One-shag DS is now 2.5, sitting next to me watching Peppa Pig.

We have recently started TTC #2 and I am shock that it didn't happen after dtd once.

crazyhead Fri 19-Apr-13 20:39:38

My 17-month DS was 1 month, and I'm currently 11 weeks with a 1 shag preg, wasn't TTC yet but OH slipped ;) Am 36 and still breastfeeding. Am a bit shellshocked but clearly have a lot to be grateful for really as long as this pg is OK.

Congrats iswish!

Iwish Thu 25-Apr-13 17:42:31
