How long did you TTC for your first? *POLL*

Sorry if this is a repeat thread! I did a search and didn't get any results.

Just for fun, I wonder how close the estimate that 25% of woman will get pregnant on the first try actually is to everyone's experience?

We were married on August 6th, I had my period a week later and got pregnant that cycle.

Jump ahead though and took us trying on and off for 2 years to conceive #5.

Took 2 months of not preventing (but not really trying - as in we made no effort to track my fertile days) for dd1. It took 1 month with dd2. And took 6 months with ds.

A year and a half of fertility treatments. After 6 months of absolutely no cycle do to PCOS. We had 2 m/c in that year and a half. Then we finally got a sticky bean with DS.

I'm mobile.... sorry for the typos!

We got pregnant with our first on birth control, so no ttc for us that time. With ds we got pregnant while charting and using condoms. We ttc'ed with number #3 but I got pregnant after my second cycle off of mirena, probably the first cycle I was actually fertile. I'm only 12 weeks pregnant with our third.

It took us 6 months (which seemed like an eternity at the time), but we miscarried that baby and got pg again a few months later. Next baby was a one time oops (but a blessing nonetheless). Next baby was over a year after getting off Mirena. And 4 is another one time oops blessing.

#1 and #2 were the first month trying. #3 took 2 years and fertility treatments, #4 took another couple of years.

Re: How long did you TTC for your first? *POLL*

As a lost mom I am not sure how to answer this. Triplets (all lost) were conceived at 2 years 2 months 2 weeks (IUI date) after we started trying (at our wedding day). DS (only living other then the one in me now) was at 4 years 1 month and about a week (IVF). Though I guess you could say that DS that I am pregnant with now was my first because he was conceived with my first IVF at 3 years, 7 months and about 4 weeks.

Awww! The wonderful world of assisted reproduction to mess up family relations! I have my older child inside me and my younger child is 4.5 years old!
