I voted 1+ year, but it was kind of more than that. We went for a year or so not trying/not preventing, then a year of trying, including 3 months of fertility treatments, before I got pregnant with our first.

I am very high risk so I was given 2 months to try naturally before starting fertility drugs, we wanted one more month without drugs and the third month, there she was! We were so blessed!

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!
I am so sorry for your losses. You have had quite the journey. Congratulations on your new LO! When your boys fight over older vs. younger things you'll be able to tell them they both are the oldest /youngest.

Not sure. I had been off bc for a couple months but we weren't trying or avoiding. I was 18 and we lived in a dorm so sex happened whenever he snuck in my room. I do know I got pg my first cycle after taking out my iud. With dd1 and 2 we were avoiding.

3 years 2 months of TTC before we got pregnant which ended in a loss.
2nd pregnancy was immediately after the first loss.
3rd pregnancy was 2 months of NTNP which ended in a loss.
4th pregnancy was immediately after the second loss.

For some reason my body likes to get pregnant after a loss but before I ever have a period. It really freaks out doctors because you can't do their little wheelie chart with no cycle date to start with. apparently once my body figured it out the first time, it knows what to do. Now we have to determine how to stop it!

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

Ha The poll is at exactly 25% for the 1st month.

Not to start anything, but does anyone know why the thread got moved?? I thought about putting it in TTC but figured it was for ppl who had already concieved. Then, I suppose I'm probably the only one on who isn't already pg with their first on a CD forum.
