How long does it take to conceive a second child?

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since April. We have a beautiful 18 1/2 month old little girl. I am starting to get a little down because it is taking so long to get pregnant this time. It only took us four months to get pregnant the first time, which we lost that baby, and only two months to get pregnant with my daughter. Its been nine months since we started trying. Did it take anyone else this long to get pregnant after there first child? Do you think it is time to talk with my docter?
