I've heard genetics have a lot to do with it, but in my case they don't seem to. My parents conceived all 3 of us in one month of trying each. DH's parents are the same story

My parents didn't have to try! All three of us were surprises. My daughter was a BIG surprise. With my son, I wasn't trying, but wasn't preventing for 2 years. The thing was, there was only a few days each month that my ex was home, and things weren't great at that point, so even when he was home, there usually wasn't much sex going on. lol

My new DH and I have now been trying since March 2006. This is my 17th cycle!

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my new siggy!

I'm no expert, but I think genetics plays a part. My parents definitely had to try. They tried four years for my brother, and six years for me.

And they had to deal with the nosy questions and the what's wrong with you's.

I was my parents surprise. My brother came after 2 months of trying. My husband was conceived easily too.

My mom got pregnant very easily but who knows. I just wish I could get pregnant as easily as my mom did.

With my sister and me, mom got off the pill one month and got pregnant before she saw another period. My brother was a surprise...they were preventing, but didn't realize the spermies could live that long.

MY DH is one of 6. They're all about 2 years apart except for him and the next oldest sister- his mom had a miscarriage in between them. Since they're pretty evenly spread out, I'm assuming no problems.

My younger brother and his wife- no problems.

Interesting how most of us have parents who had no trouble at all. I wonder why this is...it just seems so strange to me! What is so different about us?

My parents didn't have any problems conceiving. I was conceived during the third cycle and same with my sister. I don't think dh's parents had any problems since there are seven kids in the family plus one miscarriage.

I know what's stopping me from conceiving, though, and while endo can run in families, there's no history of it as far as we know and my other problem is a birth defect. It's funny because the uterine septum (which is the birth defect) didn't cause any problems with me conceiving the previous three times (my two boys and one miscarriage), although it probably played a roll in the miscarriage.

I read recently that in women with a uterine septum only 20% end up in full term babies and the other 80% are miscarriages. So, I feel very blessed to have two healthy boys that I had no pregnancy complications with.
