How Long Did It Take You to Conceive?

Hi moms. I wanted to know how long it took you to conceive any of your children. My daughter was completely unplanned so there was no time or anticipation with her. We were on birth control and next thing you know, I'm pregnant. Now that we want a second child, we have been unsuccessful for four months now. I know that every woman and every conception is different and that I can't base the probability of my conception off of anyone else. I was just curious as to how many moms were lucky and conceived right away and how many moms struggled for months or years to have their own precious angels. Thank you for sharing your stories!

What can I do next?

Not one of my three was planned. The first one was very unplanned, the second we had talked about but definitely were not "trying" then, and the third was a total shocker as well. I imagine if I were to try it wouldn't happen!! Good luck though!!

right away with both. I had a very regular cycle so that made it easier.

Both of our pregnancies were planned. For our first, it took about 9 months off the pill. Never tried, just didn't prevent. For our soon to be second (currently 11 weeks pregnant), we went off the pill. 2 weeks later.... pregnant. I thought it would take 6 or more months, since it did first time around. But we were blessed.
Good luck. Hope it works out for you.
