If DC1 was unplanned, how long did it take to TTC DC2?

As it says, really. My first DC is 6.5 and we've started TTC. It's cycle 2, but we haven't really be doing it 'properly'- both been working madly busy shifts grin

I felt a little silly, because after the 'Oh my God, I'm pregnant' moment with DC1, I half expected to be pregnant as soon as DH and I had unprotected sex a couple of times grin Of course I know that's not the case, but it did make me wonder how long it had taken other people!

My first wasn't a surprise, but was conceived the first month of trying. Now on cycle 11 of ttc number 2, hope I catch this month like you MrsCouchman!! There doesn't seem to be any rhyme nor reason as to how long it takes to get pregnant!

My first pregnancy was a complete shock while on the pill, the second took 2 months of trying, the third was sort of a surprise because we were a bit lazy with contraception, the fourth took about 5 months of very active/desperate trying and my current pregnancy took 3 months of not really trying but not preventing either. Two of the pregnancies were not sticky though so I only have 2 dc. Strangely out of all my pregnancies the one where we tried the hardest and I became the most obsessed/crazy using opks and timing everything was also the one that ended up taking the longest.

My first was a surprise then the second took 4 months. 5 pregnancies since then have all been conceived straight away so I'm not sure what was going on.

My first was unplanned and only took one missed pill and it took 5 months of ttc with dc2 just as we were beginning to worry.
