 For those that tried for a second baby how long did it take you? Were you on BC before? Did you have any medical conditions?

We are ready to try for our second baby. I know everyone is different I am just curious as to how long it took you ladies. Thanks!

I was not on birth control. My first DS just turned 15 months old when my period returned. I am breastfeeding. Second menstraul cycle was like 45 days after my first cycle. It actually started the day my dad died. We decided to start TTC. Next month when I expected my next period I tested and it was negative. Tested again a week later and it was positive. Ironically my estimated due date is right around my dad's birthday in May.

I was on Nuva Ring. I had put one in for the two weeks and decided to stop and get pregnant. I was pregnant 2 weeks later :)

Now my 3rd pregnancy I lost at 7 weeks due to a blighted ovum and no fetus actually grew. That took 4 months. The next month we tried and I got my period EXACTLY 31 days from when the bleeding had started. We tried again for our last month since we could not handle a 3rd child born in December within the same week and so close to Christmas (daughter was born Dec 31st, son Dec 28. 5 years 3 days apart). I will be 33 weeks Saturday with a due date of November 27th!

10 months. No medical conditions and i had not been on any birth control since having #1 and #1 happened the first month I stopped taking BCP. I didn't think it would take so long, but after the fact I'm glad it happened when it did and not sooner :)
Working on #3 now

We were not trying to conceive my second. I was not on birth control, but we didn't think it would happen so soon since it took is so long to get pregnant with my first. He was our little sunrise. My oldest was only 3 months old when we found out about my second.
