Hi everyone

I’m currently on the 9th cycle trying to conceive #1. I’m just wondering how long it took you all to conceive #1! Is this completely normal? Should I be worried? DH just says it will happen when it happens and not to worry.. maybe he’s right! We put so much planning into a situation we have no control over!

It took us 2 years and 7 months to conceive ds who is now 3. We’re 11 months into ttc for dc2. No joy yet.

It took me so long I'm not really sure but I'd say about five years. Been trying to conceive another for five years. But I have endometriosis on my ovaries so I'm lucky I conceived without help at all!

9 years for DS1 (donor egg IVF) 8 months later DS2 was conceived naturally

About four months with both. I was 41 and 43. Just lucky I guess. It took my friend 16 years - she was 46 when it finally happened! But I think she had the attitude of if it happens it happens.

OP are you using ovulation predictions kits, pre seed lube and temping to understand your cycles (absolutely not stating these are guaranteed to help everyone) but they helped me. Good luck x

Around 6 months, but I used opk's, conceive plus, temping and an app to understand my cycles! On my fertile week when we conceived we dtd every night, not every other.... I'm 35 weeks pregnant today with my first x

5 pregnancies
3 misses
Twice first go (ended in missed)
Twice at 3rd cycle (my kiddies)
Once at 6th cycle (most recent ended in mid)

Ds1 was a surprise as I was on the pill
Dc2 was a surprise as I was breastfeeding and on the mini pill (termination- just started university)
Ds2 was planned, had my coil removed and conceived the first time we had sex, 3 days later (only time we had sex in a 2 weeks period)
Dc 2,,3, 4 I fell pregnant on the pill and miscarried at around 5/6 weeks

Doctors have told me I’m ‘hyper fertile’. But thankfully I’ve never conceived with a coil in.

DC1 - 11 months
DC2 - about 10 minutes wink which was a bit of a shock to say the least, especially as DC1 was only 6 months & I was still breastfeeding
DC3 - 4 months

YouBumder Thu 30-May-19 00:33:53

Month 1 and then month 2. Very lucky. Hope everyone trying has good news soon x

4 months. I stopped taking the pill in July 2014, and got pregnant in November 2014.

Nearly 5 years.

First cycle with first pregnancy, which sadly ended at 13 weeks. I was 32 at the time. Conceived on honeymoon.

Second (current) pregnancy, five cycles. I'm 33 now.
