Yeah, I know, It's been just under 2mo of TTC again... but I've talked to so many women who were preg again within 2 months. After my first m/c it took almost a year (did the recommended 2 month bc/wait after that one). I'm done nursing, didn't go back on bc this time... still no AF (although if I could get preg on bc, while nursing, with no AF... shouldn't this be easier??).

I have an age time line for myself, I'm already about 5 years past where I'd planned to be done having kids (and if I hadn't met DH I'd have been done). I wanted to be a young mom for all of my kids, and now... well... I'm going to be really old before DD is out of high school... and if we manage to have another... old (imo) when it's born. (Don't get me wrong, I have major respect for moms of all ages, I just have really rigid... expectations, I guess, for myself.) (That, and each pregnancy has been harder on my body than the previous one, I still have terrible back and hip pain from DD, I'm afraid of being much older for the next one.) So, to meet my timeline, this needs to happen in the next month or two.

But we need to have a sibling for DD, she's so sad when her brothers are at their bio's... and DH and I both want another of our own... But I also don't want to feel like I need a walker, while LO is learning to walk, kwim?

after my first loss it took 16 months

i am 6 months out from my second m/c and still nadda.

I hear you on being way past the timeline. I had hoped to have 3-4 kids bu the time I was 28, my first wasn't born until I was 27... IF blows.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way on the time line. I've told a few people irl, and they thought I was nuts. DH keeps telling me "you have time"... umm, no, not really. I'm older than you... and I've already pushed my cutoff back 5 years.

Good luck to you!

It took us 7 months TTC to get pregnant again after our loss in the fall. It felt like forever. Normally I've gotten pregnant in the first month, once it took 3 months. I think my body needed time to heal and restore because I bled very heavily during my miscarriage.

I found out I was pregnant with this baby the same weekend the baby we lost would have been due.

It just depends on what all is going on in there. After my first loss, I was pregnant again immediately. After my last loss, I'm still not. I hope for a BFP before the two year mark in December.

I am getting ready to turn 43 in 6 days I had ttc for 2 yrs 3 months when I got pg in Jan but unfortunately I had a m/c in Feb. In 2 months I will be at the 3 yr mark of ttc and the due date for my lost baby (Oct 14th). It has been almost 6 months since the loss and I am still not pg Time is definitely not on my side BUT I can't afford to get medical assistance and my insurance doesn't cover infertility treatments I really hope that it happens for all of us soon!!!!!!!!!
