  • With my DD it took us over a year. I had come off of birth control and like most women I was extremely uneducated about fertility and how to truly maximize my chances of getting pregnant. I did OPKs, herbs of all sort, different positions, name it I did it. THEN one day a lady recommended the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility. I charted and got pregnant in one month. I realized in doing this how much of a waist of money the OPKs had been because they were so far off of my ovulation mark and vowed to chart from now on.

    Now I chart for both birth control and TTC purposes depending on which outcome I'm wanting at the time. LOL.

    I got pregnant with our son on the very first try with charting.

  • I got pregnant my first cycle after I stopped using my BC. Caught me by surprise, I didn't expect it that quickly.

  • My dd took 8 months of really trying...counting days and taking temps. My cycle was all over the place-it was not easy. My ds was the first month we decided to not do anything to not get pregnant-we were thinking since it was so hard with the first it would take a few months at least-nope first try and ds was on his way!
