How many times did you have to "try" before getting pregnant? adult content

My husband and I had used the pull-out method for about 5 years successfully when one night we decided last minute to just once, not do it. I knew instantly that I was going to be pregnant. ONE time out of 5 years, and we now have a son, lol.

I really have no idea where to put this. :)

  • The two tiimes in our marriage that we didn't use condoms and said whatever happens, happens... it did. lol
    For the third baby I was breastfeeding and my cycle was weird, coming at all different times. Then we tried for 4 months before we got pregnant.

  • I have been pregnant 5 times (3 miscarriages, 2 kids). The first 4 I got pregnant the first cycle I tried. The last one was accident. We were using NFP and well... it didn't work. =P

  • I didn't try. Seems to work for me, I guess. 6 kids and only 1 was planned.

  • 1st was a happy surprise after being told we wouldn't be able to have kids, 2nd took 2 years of trying, and we have been trying again for over 2 years. It's hard to hear about other people getting pregnant so easily. Doesn't seem fair, especially when people who don't want kids get pregnant so easily.
