Hi guys, been reading loads of threads over the past few days. I am now 2dpo on my first cycle of ttc #1. I've created this thread to see if anyone had any success In conceiving in the first month or so. Really trying not to be crazy or obsessive but this is all new to me! I came off the pill last month so I know there's an unlikely chance of getting pregnant due to hormones. But if anyone has any comments, feel free to share!
flowers Good luck to everyone xx

DC1 took 5 months, DC2 took 1. We were surprised, we thought we’d have a few more months so DC1 would be on 3 year funding st Nursery. So it’ll be more expensive than expected. But we’ll be fine.

I’m 37.

Oh and for DC1 I’d been thinking n the pill for 16 years. Didn’t go back on it after, so that may be a factor.

DC1 took a year. DC2 took 1 night. And I was still breastfeeding No1.

I was pregnant from first time of not using contraception for 4/6 pregnancies. Second month for other two.

No.1 took two cycles, no.2 took one.

Before we went into this we thought we would have problems and thought no.1 would take years to conceive...!

I was lucky enough to conceive ds during the first month of trying and dd during the second month. I do appreciate that I was very lucky. I was 34 and 36.

Fell pregnant one weekend without protection for first DC, same weekend as we decided to start trying with DC2 and one drunken night with no protection for DC3. Needless to say, I am very careful with protection as we don't want any more DC.

One hit wonder the first time. Sadly ended in miscarriage. Second one month and third a one hot wonder again. I was 31, 34 and 36

Me! I conceived 5 weeks after having mirena coil removed. I had a one day period about 4 weeks after removal and conceived the following week. Baby is due in 9 days. I get the impression it happens more often than people realise (although that's my experience from a group of us aged 26-30). Hope you get your bfp quickly!

I've had one where we weren't even trying, then two conceived on the first month.

Just waiting for test for DC4 (10dpo!) and trying to remember it won't necessarily happen this time.

I feel so, so lucky for things to have been so easy for us in this department.

I fell pregnant at the first attempt with both of mine. 😀

DragonMamma Sun 15-Oct-17 18:52:35

DC1 I wasn't even trying (on the Pill) and with DC2 we made the decision to TTC and a couple of weeks after I got my BFP.

I have four kids, two of them took me one cycle to conceive. Weirdly, that was my eldest (8) and my youngest( 2 weeks). My middle children took 12 months and 14 months to conceive. But they were to a different partner so maybe its something to do with that.

DragonMamma Sun 15-Oct-17 18:53:46

I would say that I don't know if it would happen as quickly now, I'm 34 and my periods have started to become ever so slightly irregular but when I had my DC I was in my mid 20s

TillyTheTiger Sun 15-Oct-17 18:54:32

Yep, was on the pill for 14 years without any mishaps, then conceived within a fortnight of stopping it with DS1

Tiredmum100 Sun 15-Oct-17 18:55:02

Yes, got pregnant with my 1 St on first month of ttc. I was on honeymoon and just had a feeling I was pregnant, took a test which was negative but I was still sure, I just felt different, dh said "don't be silly, get your hopes up etc". Did another one when we got home and was positive.

Bubblegum89 Sun 15-Oct-17 18:57:59

I’ve fallen pregnant twice both after one missed pill so within a month. I have now been actively ttc for almost a year and nothing sad

Gem173 Sun 15-Oct-17 18:58:49

Wow so many successes! Really inspiring, it's given me a bit of hope! Am sure that if AF arrives at the end of this month that I will get hit back into reality. But until then il carry on dreaming!

Blueberrysandgrapes76 Sun 15-Oct-17 18:59:19

Yep! No 1 was a one night wonder the first month trying. It can happen. fingers crossed for you

NapQueen Sun 15-Oct-17 19:00:04

Dc1 was second month. We dtd every other day that month.

Pregnancy two (mc at 11wks) we didnt track anything just dtd whenever we fancied. Took about 5 months.

Dc2 we dtd tge day I ovulated (I get ovulation pains so knew), and it was the only time we dtd that month. So literally one attempt.

0hDeer Sun 15-Oct-17 19:00:28

A friend of mine came off the pill and fell pregnant straight away. They were both shocked because they thought it would take about a year to conceive and suddenly they had to move their plans along!

Gem173 Sun 15-Oct-17 19:05:57

As it's my first month I wasn't too sure when I ovulated, I took 7 tests. 6 negative and one positive. I bd'ed 4 days before and the night before the pos opk and the night after. Don't feel like I have done enough but will just have to wait and see!

BandhaAid Sun 15-Oct-17 19:37:48

@Gem173, I have a 'coming off the pill' story too. I was on it for 12 years, came off and for the first two months I had a very short luteal phase (so not compatible with conception) but month three must have been a more normal cycle because I conceived that month. So it may only take a couple of months for your cycles to settle

MoJoBack Sun 15-Oct-17 20:35:25

Ttc with DS#1 was 24 months. My partner at the time smoked weed and I’m sure it’s why it took so long. His sperm was as slow as him!!! Ttc #2 6 years later, different partner now DH cycle 1 grin
