How long for you?
If you already have a child, how long did it take you to conceive each time?

If you are currently TTC, how long have you been trying for this blessing?

With my son, it took 7 cycles to get pregnant. AF started on Sunday night for me so we are about to start our 7th cycle TTC this one. Even though it took 7 cycles to conceive my first, it is hard to not feel like it is never going to happen. I keep telling myself that a year is normal so I don't need to worry yet but it gets more difficult as more time goes on.

Re: How long for you?
It took me 6 cycles with DD w/my ex husband. This will be my second cycle with my SO. Its early so I'm not stressed in that regard, however its the unknown with him and I sometimes worry that it will be harder this time. I'm almost 31 now and SO had a testicular injury/surgery when he was young. Doctors said it should be fine but they never went back in to check that everything was open and fine line they were recommended. So, of course I'm paranoid.

6 cycles ttc for us. This is our first cycle with Clomid, so we are hopeful :)

Re: How long for you?
I've been VERY blessed in the past. #1 took 6 cycles, #2 took 2 cycles, and #3 was unplanned (one time without a condom and I had no idea where I was in my cycle - I couldn't even remember my LMP). This time we are on our 12th cycle. It sucks but I'm not complaining because we are so blessed to have 3 already.

Re: How long for you?
my girls and my loss were 1st and 2nd try, this time its been a year I don't no if I can get pregnant again my last pregnancy the placenta broke in half and had to have a d and then silly nurse gave me depo which I was bleeding for 5mths, had to take pill for it to stop. think I got scaring from it :(

Re: How long for you?
first was 5 months on ineffective birth control ;) Not planned, but very loved!

2nd was a year of trying and several losses.

This time it was 1 cycle of trying, got pregnant. Lost the baby 3 months later and now I"m in my 4th cycle of trying after that. So techically it's now 7 months of "ttc" if you count the time I was pregnant? 5th cycle total trying for this baby if you count the one I got pregnant on? Confusing ;)

Re: How long for you?
1st cycle with dd, had a surprise pgy 2 yrs ago with my ex but ended in m/c, & this is me and DF's 2nd cycle trying.

Electriclids- I know what you mean. I'm with a new partner too & his ex and him never used bc pills & she didnt fall pg with their son till the 3rd yr, but he said they weren't trying till then. I hope he's telling the truth! :rolleyes:

Re: How long for you?
DS1 - We went unprotected a few times. Realized that we were actually trying and pretty much turned up pg right away.
DD1 - 2 cycles
This time - This is cycle #2 of trying after TR.

Re: How long for you?
With dd it was about 2 years of ntnp. My second was an oops and now my dw and I are on to our 6th cycle but it has been spread out over the past year and a half so it feels longer.

Re: How long for you?
DS #1 was an oops. DS #2 was NTNP, but I don't remember for how long. It wasn't too long though. And with this one, I am on cycle #15 but it has been 1 yr and 8 months because I have long cycles.

Re: How long for you?
No children, yet, but in total we've been TTC for 12 months. I got pregnant after 7 months of trying, ended in MC at 6 weeks so we took a 6 month break. I was on the pill for that break, and I wish I never had. I've been off the pill now for 5 months and last cycle was my first normal cycle. Hopefully we dont have to try too much longer...it feels like forever because we had that MC and took the break. So its all been spread out over 18 months.

Re: How long for you?
No kids yet, this is cycle #2.

Tiffany8620 December 13th, 2013 01:20 PM

Re: How long for you?
With DS it took three cycles.
Next pregnancy was a one time 'oops should have used protection,' but ended in a miscarriage. We got pregnant my first cycle after and had DD.
My last pregnancy was the first month not using protection, but that was another miscarriage.
I haven't had my first post-loss AF yet, so that's what I'm waiting for right now.

Re: How long for you?
We've been ttc baby # 1 for almost 5 months now.

Re: How long for you?
With DD it took 4 cycles. TTC#2 now and I'm in my 8th cycle. C'mon BFP!

Re: How long for you?
I'm sorry to see so many of us don't get pregnant right away but at the same time, it is comforting to know that I am not alone. AF started last night so I am on to cycle 8. It seems like everyone around me gets pregnant so easily so I just don't understand why it is so hard for me.

Re: How long for you?
With my DD, we weren't really TTC. I was charting to avoid, and we had a "mishap" 5 days before O and I got pregnant. I had been effectively charting to avod for 8 months before that.

This is cycle #1 for us actively TTC... not sure where it will go!

Re: How long for you?
No children yet, this is cycle #6 TTC.

meld10 January 2nd, 2014 12:35 PM

Re: How long for you?
Tried for 2 months when we conceived but I then had a miscarriage at 8 weeks. Now I'm just waiting for AF to get back to TTC... it has technically been about 4 months since we decided to start TTCing but only 2 months of actively trying.

SassyMama January 2nd, 2014 01:04 PM

Re: How long for you?
With DD I got PG in my first cycle.
With my ectopic it took two cycles.
We're on cycle 7 now.
