How long to conceive dc2?

We conceived dc1 on cycle 5 (after a cp on cycle 4); I was 34 dt the time.
We're planning to start ttc dc2 in December, when I will be 37.
I was just wondering about people's experiences ttc dc2? Have you found that it has taken longer?

DC1- one missed pill, wasn’t ttc at all

I’m on month 11 of ttc now...

DC2 was conceived the first month of trying with the use of the clear blue digital ovulation monitor and some conceive easy gel. A small investment for a very happy return smile also important to add that I was 30 when we started trying and fell pregnant with minimal effort. DC1 took nearly four months and I was 24.

Good luck with baby number 2!

Dc1 was not planned.

Dc2 was planned but took 10 months to happen. I was so stressed about it I went to tgr doc who made a referral to have me checked over but also said I wouldn't need the appt as I would be pregnant the next month..... he was right!

DC1 unplanned however TTC numbed 2 currently & we are on month 10, going for tests this week to find out what’s going on. I agree with previous posts, it does get stressful & it’s hard not to let it get stressful.

9 months, we are 22

DC1 was conceived on cycle 2 (age 30), DC2 took about 18 months and a mmc (started ttc at 34).

Equally I’ve read lots of stories on here of people who got pregnant quickly second time round after trying for ages with their first. Just goes to show that you really can’t tell!

DC1 - one period then upduffed (age 23)
DC2 - 7 months (age 26)

DC1, aged 34 - 2 mths.
Now aged 37, in TWW of cycle 7, not sodding pregnant yet...

That said, I know quite a few people who took a while with DC1 and so started trying early for DC2 and ended up with 2 under 2. I thought I was being clever avoiding that trap!

DC1 - 3 months (30)
DC2 - 1 month (33)

I should add we finally got bfp for dc2 after using ovulation tests that cycle. I should have started using them much earlier on.

lookingforthecorkscrew Wed 11-Oct-17 10:41:57

Conceived on cycle one in Jan but ended in miscarriage. Just got second BFP this week, so took about 6 cycles after miscarriage (cycles were crazy for a while).

skankingpiglet Wed 11-Oct-17 10:42:03

DC1 was the result of a one-off contraception failure.
DC2 was conceived in the second month of trying, although we weren't trying particularly hard TBH. No keeping a track of my cycle, DTD once the first month and twice the second.
We've been very lucky and are now very careful with the contraception.
