How long has it taken you to conceive?

Hi all

We have just this month started trying for our fourth baby. I am pretty fortunate that my other little ones only took between 3 and 6 months of trying.
Anyone out there get caught quickly? Or longer maybe?

Thanks Belinda xxx

  • My first baby I didn't plan but I know when it happened ad it was the 1 time we had unprotected sex. We are plan to have another and are not using protection now but don't want to get caught up in the trying all the time so we are just going to let it happen. Trying all the time takes the fun out of sex for me. We have been "trying" for a month now. GL to you!!

  • It was an unplanned pregnancy, but I was on birth control; taking it inconsistently because I thought I wouldn't be able to have kids due to "health issues". I was wrong, I am way fertile!

  • my husband and I were trying for over 2yrs. We finally gave up on it(there was a chance I could not get preg.) moved out of our big house (thankfully) and into a smaller place closer to family. got rid of a lot of stress and then all of a sudden I found out I was pregnant!! I just had to stop thinking about it and stressing over it and then it just happened!!!!
