  • It took us 5 months before we got pregnant, but we weren't trying per say. If it happened, it happened. It can take up to a year to get pregnant.

  • The first time we "tried" (meaning we didn't use protection) we got pregnant. We weren't stressing about it though if and when it happened it would happen.

  • We weren't trying! We used a condom and everything! I think the main thing is not to put pressure on yourselves, it's like when people say 'If you stop looking for boyfriend, you'll find one.'

  • We got pregnant right away but that pregnancy ended in a m/c. After that it took us a year to get pregnant again with our first son. We got pregnant when I stopped charting and watching dates. When I stopped stressing over it. Our next son and daughter were both surprises.

  • We were together a little over 2 years before we had our first DD, (we weren't trying, but we also did not use protection) Then with our 2nd, 14 months later.

  • First 2 were not planned, but no protection was being used so we were just "if it happens it happens" the last took 3 weeks :)
