Hiya,

With my first son, we had only been actively "trying" for a month and fell.

With son #2, same thing...

However with baby #3,  it took us 9+ months, lots of OPK and HPTs before we got it.  I also had a Blighted Ovum in that time too.


That said, that is pretty average as I have read here some ladies trying for years.

Good luck with your TTC.

Me....5 times!!

#1 we decided to try (ignorant to all things TTC)
2 weeks later a BFP...beautiful DS

#2 decided when I got AF back we would start that month, BFP that cycle...m/c @ 8weeks

#3 waited for AF after having D+C, jumped back into it right away BFP that cycle...beautiful DD

#4 decided when I got AF back we would start that month, BFP that cycle...m/c @ 9weeks

#5 waited for AF (was actually hoping to fall, but DH was interstate at O time so knew we were out), had the one AF after D+C then BFP that cycle....hoping this one sticks... hands.gif


So yes it does happen!  However, with the first 2 I was VERY ignorant to TTC, the last three I have charted with the works, temp, OPKs, CM, CP and O pain and have been very fortunate to fall 1st time every time, didn't make the journey any easier, but I do feel very blessed.

All this being said, do not put pressure on yourself, you can still have perfect timing, perfect sperm, perfect everything and it still doesn't work.  Mother Nature has her way of making sure she is in control.

Good Luck

Posted 15 May 2008 - 02:47 PM

Yes me...

DS was a bit of a suprise package, coming after i missed 1 pill.  

I then fell again the first month when TTC #2 but sadly ended in a M/C.

I fell again straight after the M/c to have DD.

This time it took 3 months.

It took us nearly 12 L-O-N-G months  wub.gif we feel so very lucky to b where we are right now!! Pls dont b too hard on urself, we spend our whole lives trying to AVOID getting PG that when we try are often very disapointed & 'let down' when it doesnt happen after a month of no protection!
Best advice I can offer is dont give urself a timeline, oh and of course, relaxxxxxxxxx  rolleyes.gif  rolleyes.gif whatever!
Best of Luck with ur TTC jouney!

Posted 15 May 2008 - 03:00 PM

Yep, 3 times.

#1, lost at 15.5 weeks

#2 - beautiful healthy DS

#3 - another beautiful DS.

I know we are extremely lucky and blessed to have no problems so far with TTC

#13 peyow

Posted 15 May 2008 - 03:06 PM

I also wish it was that easy sad.gif

80% of couples will fall within the first 12mths.

Don't expect it to happen quickly, then you wont get as disappointed.

#14 Drop Dead Fred

Posted 15 May 2008 - 03:21 PM

I agree with Peyow, i came off the pill expecting to be highly fertile (like my Mum) and fall straight away but no.

March was our first month TTC and we got a BFP straight away...unfortunately i miscarried though  cry1.gif

#16 2littlekiddies

Posted 15 May 2008 - 03:25 PM

I fell straight away with DS (only BD 2 times and charted) but with DD who was my 1st, it took 4 months with no charting.

#17 Sloane Peterson

Posted 15 May 2008 - 04:41 PM

DP and I got lucky first cycle but subsequently miscarried. Its been almost a year since, and still no sticky one!

Bloody PCOS!

First month TTC with DS2 ... was a fluke.

DS1 was 5 months, DS3 was 6 months - both not long either.

#4 I'm now up to 16 looooong cycles sad.gif  (with MC after 10)

DS2 was definitely a fluke somehow  *sigh*

DS#2 was lets start TTC next month - oh wait to late already pregnant. However DS#1 took 12 looonnng months, so DS#2 was a shock - this time however up to Cycle 8 - but did have a chemical pregnancy last cycle.

My mum concieved my brother on her first month off the BCP. Concieved my sister and i on the second month each time.

#21 nico83

Posted 15 May 2008 - 07:22 PM

I WISH!! We were hoping to fall straight away... a honeymoon baby would have been nice but no such luck  sad.gif

Anyway, we're onto cycle 5 now and it just feels like its never going to happen... I don't even know what a BFP looks like.

... and here I am having a whinge when I know there are lots of people out there still TTC #1 after years... it's funny how you set yourself little 'goals' - I might be pregnant for my birthday, my friend's wedding, mother's day.... they keep getting further away... maybe I'll be pregnant for Christmas  grin.gif

I guess you've gotta just keep doing what you're doing... keep those BD shoes on!!  tongue.gif

I was incredibly blessed.

With DD1 I had been off the pill for months but we weren't trying (using condoms etc). When we decided to try, I was using Maybe Baby, we BD on fern day and yep, BFP. One try!

Second DD was the same - Maybe Baby, fern day, BD, yep BFP.

Edited to add - DH not impressed  laughing2.gif  laughing2.gif He wanted much more practice at it!

Not me! BFP in fourth month, thought it wasn't meant to be and was a chemical pregnancy.

Skipped the fifth month to give my body a break, BFP in the 7th month. So far so good with this one - saw a nice heartbeat at 7 weeks original.gif Wont relax until my NT scan though!

Even though it wasn't first month, I still feel pretty blessed in that I've had two BFPs in such a short space of time.
