How long did it take you to conceive your second child?

I have been ttc baby #2 for almost a yr and just took an HPT this morning and it was neg. But I have been cramping for like over a week and have felt like I have morning sickness...I was just curious how long it took everyone to conceive their second child to maybe put my mind at ease.

  • with all my pregnancies I consived pretty quickly. #1 I got married got on the pill for 2 months then decided I wanted a baby so got off of the pill and it took me within 2 months of trying I was pregnant. With baby #2 I tried and again it took within 2 months. This time I am 17 weeks pregnant and again it took within 2 months lol.

  • Our second took only about 3 months.

    It was the first one that was difficult...but I tend to have low progesterone levels, so my problem turned out to be that I couldn't sustain a pregnancy, rather than that I couldn't conceive.

    Try not to let the time trouble you. It will happen. :-)

  • 4 weeks.

    I got pregnant in Jan '04, lost the baby in March. I went on BC for a while and went off it in Sept. '04 and got pregnant in Oct. '04.

  • 9 or 10 months. Buuut it was with someone other than the father of my son.
    Just remember, everyone is different, and pregnancies can be different for one woman too.
    Good luck.
