Have you been TTC longer than you thought you would be?

 I'm just curious how others came into the TTC process. I have been TTC #3 for 17 months and it has taken me by surprise.  The funny thing is this is the first time I came into the process with confidence ... I had a MC with my first pregnancy and then it took almost 2 yrs to get pregnant again .... I thought it was never going to happen and then with my 2nd son I was prepared to have another long road, but to my surprise got pregnant fairly quickly. (4 months).

I feel like I spent all this time talking it over with my husband, making sure we were in a place to have a third child, what car would we buy, what would we do for a nursery ...... just assuming that we would get pregnant again.  I feel a bit stupid now, like I should have known better and maybe I was too confident.  I also feel incredibly arrogant in the fact that I said "let's try for a girl", when really that shouldn't of even mattered at all.  

In the end, I am so thankful to have my 2 boys and if I am lucky enough to get pregnant again I will never take it for granted.  Not that I ever did .... but sometimes you need a reminder.

for me WAY too long. I had my Mirena out in December and didn't get my bfp till april and then had an early mc. It took 4 months and now we are on our 3rd cycle. I have four children and the longest it has ever taken me is 2 months.

Both of my daughters were total surprises and I'm not lying when I say that the only two times he didn't pull out resulted in two kids. Now we're trying for #3 and we just expected it to be sooooo easy. I suppose it sort of was, in a way. We got pregnant on our second cycle of trying, but lost the pregnancy early. I didn't expect that at all. That was last cycle. I'm in my 2ww right now.

No, although I was hoping it would be a shorter period.  DF started a new job and is away a lot now I knew it would take awhile.
