  • Apparently (in spite of my advanced age, heh) I'm fertile Myrtle. My first pregnancy happened even though I was on the pill (ended in a blighted ovum though). We started trying right after my miscarriage, I got pregnant my first cycle. This time, I AGAIN got pregnant while being on the pill... Strange thing is, I've been on the pill since I was 14. Never got pregnant before. I'm religious about taking it every day, at the same time. I have NO idea why all of a sudden it doesn't seem to work for me anymore... But after I have this baby, I'm so going on a different type of birth control!

  • 3 years. It turns out I have PCOS so I had to eventually turn to fertility drugs and procedures. I'm now 9 months preggy with my first.

  • It took us 6 years to have my son and 2 miscarriages before I had him, I have since had 3 more miscarriages and we have not been trying to prevent it from happening since he was 1 and he is now almost 10. I'm allergic to the fertility drugs so it is by the grace of that I get pregnant.
