  • A few months with the first one, a year and a half with the second, 4 years with the 3rd and 12 years with the last. I am now 45 and just found out that the reason that I had such a hard time is because my progesterone level is low. It was hereditary and my mother never bothered to tell me or my sisters. Only because my sister had a hard time TTC did we find out. Please don't be discouraged because it took so long, but ask your doctor to check your level. After finding this out, I have met many women in the same boat and it is easily fixed. Good luck!!!

  • With my last baby (baby #4) it took us almost a year. The other two pregnancies (one pregnancy was twins) there was not really any trying involved, so it taking so long for the last one really had me depressed. My best advice for you is to stop trying...just have fun. Take the stress out of it and it will happen easier! Good luck!!

  • It took a year and a half with my first and 6 months with my second. I am not an easy one to get pregnant for some reason. Keep trying and don't give up
