19 🙈 fell pregnant first time. Tried again at 22 and took 8 months.
Though we did have a miscarriage in between and it was an 'accidental' pregnancy that resulted in loss.

32, fell pregnant the first time.
If you're 25 I'm sure you've got lots of time!

I was 31, had my dc1 9 months later. Two more dc, conceived when I was 33 and 36. Happened straight away each time. I’ve been very lucky.

28, conceived 7 months later but sadly lost our baby, conceived again just under a year later and now 39 weeks aged 30

conceived after 4 years and 5 cycles of ICSI. Glad I started young!

We'd both just turned 24, 2 months before we got married.
Finally admitted defeat age 28 and started IVF, which luckily was successful 1st time and gave us our DS when we were aged 29. Have been going through IVF since then to try for DC2 but several miscarriages and failed rounds later I'm about to start our final shot at it, we'll both be 38 this year (which is far older and much bigger a potential age gap than I ever wanted but don't feel 100% ready to throw in the towel on it yet)
