I just read this article and it made me feel a little better so I thought I'd share! Maybe a babymoon and some acupuncture is just what I need!

Why can a second child be so hard to conceive? Despite easily becoming pregnant first-time around, more and more women are struggling when they try again | Mail Online

We're TTC our 3'rd. First baby was a struggle and dealt with a m/c before we had a healthy baby. TTC #2 was super easy (I was shocked!) now ttc #3 and we're on our 3 cycle so we shall see when it happens.

Well taking a babymoon is just not an option for us. But have definitely done more research and looking into acupuncture. If nothing else I figure it will at least help regulate my monthly cycles and hormones better. Also hoping that it would be able to help with my stress. Pretty sure between stress from work&taking care of the home and working night shift does not help us in our quest to try and get pregnant.

We are TTC for #2. My daughter was a surprise - we weren't married and had been dating 5 months. We DTD 3 times in the month that we got pregnant. So we were very fertile I guess. I'm hoping this time around is just as easy! I'm in my 3rd week of TTC and am not "late" yet so no testing for me! We'll see!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!! GRACIAS! This has helped me a lot...it was like they were talking about us..with my son, now 2, we said "Why don't we have a baby?"and BAM! I got pregnant, first month of using no protection; Now, it's been 3 months, and nothing. Now, I know that 3 months is like 'nothing'....BUT I have been sooooo stressed....and last friday, I once again took an HPT thinking I WAS pregnant....and I showed it to my DH because I SAW a line....he didný (of course, it wasn't there...), and he told me: "Don't worry....relax, I think it'll happen next year"...and that was it, I said to myself "Why are you stressing so much!"....so I decided to relax, lost some weight, which will help me regulate my cycles and all....and I will not take another HPT until I lose the weight I want to. And this article just encourage me to wait...thanks a lot, and I really hope we all get our BFP soon, but not desperately!

Blessings! And Oh! ONce I lose some weight, I will definitely try some acupuncture....it might help with stress too

Thanks for sharing. I'm TTC #4. #1 was when I was younger, we decided we wanted a baby, tried for a month and then realized we weren't ready and stopped trying. A few weeks later we found out I was pregnant. #2 was an accident. There were two instances within a week of each other and she was conceived during one of them (once condom fell of, second was unprotected). #3 we tried for and it took 6 months.

I personally think the #1 reason why it can take longer to conceiver at 2+ kids is because you are older than the babies before.

Lol callista my ds was an accident too! So I don't know why #2 is so hard
Nicole, I agree that in general age does play a factor. However, I'm barely 27, so I'm not included in the age range that dr.s say is when your egg production slows down. For us right now its unexplained why two young healthy people with a child together can't conceive after 12 cycles. Frustrating! Oh well... On to cycle 13!
