    Default Experiences TTC #2

    Hi all
    So it took us over a year of active TTC to fall pregnant with DD. That was with tracking ovulation, temping etc. We've just decided to not try, not prevent #2 and I was wondering whether it usually takes the same time each time you TTC?

    What are everyone's experiences? Did it take longer? Less time? About the same?

    I don't want to start temping etc until March (when I will hopefully be at my weight goal) but just wanted to see how others have found it!

    DS3 took 4 years and 3 rounds of IVF after being advised that DH and I had a 1% chance of ever conceiving naturally. This year we fell pregnant naturally in January (miscarriage at 9 weeks) and then fell pregnant again immediately (also naturally) after we decided we were very happy with 1 child and a return to IVF wasn't for us!

    I am currently 22 weeks pregnant. I won't be trusting any unprotected sex after this bub is born! I don't think your first TTC length is any measure of how long next time around!

    We tried for over a year with our first. With our third (second pregnancy, first two are twins) we just weren't really preventing, especially since we naively thought it would take ages to get pregnant and we fell straight away.

    Sometimes there is no rhyme nor reason.

    Not me personally, but it took my mum just over a year to get pregnant with my elder brother. (Got pregnant on her last cycle before she was due to start clomid.)
    She assumed it would take just as long with me so began trying earlier and got pregnant first try!

    I'm the opposite (unfortunately). Only took me three months to fall pregnant with DS. We're currently still trying for #2 and it's been 11cycles now. Really hoping it's not much longer! Fx'd!

    For our first it took 8 months of actively trying - the 2nd (still baking) we took a lets see how it goes approach - no timing, charting etc - happened first go.

    Best of luck!

    Dd1, I found out I was pregnant 7 weeks after deciding we'd start trying. So we caught that first egg.

    Dd2 took 9 months of trying really really hard.

    Our dd was conceived in our second month of trying. We thought our second bub would be as easy... We were wrong. It took 18 months ( with a break in the middle while our dd was having serious health issues) and we just got our bfp on Monday! I had a hysterosalpingogram a few weeks ago. I'm convinced that's what has helped us. Our fertility dr said unexplained secondary infertility is very common. We were naive to assume we would conceive again so easily.

    Took us almost 2 years, IVF and a miscarriage before I fell pregnant with DS1.

    Amazingly enough I then fell pregnant with DS2 when DS1 was about 7 months old! Our natural miracle. We weren't actively trying but we weren't preventing either

    First time - first go.

    This time - 18 months. 1 year of trying and then sought assistance, turns out my csection left me with adhesions on my ueterus. So after a lap in april and 6 months later we're pregnant. We have pretty much given up though and we weren't even trying when we got pregnant. I think not thinking about it was helpful for us.
