Currently waiting until November to TTC #1! I imagine, in my fantasy world, of telling our family on Thanksgiving or Christmas, lol. We are waiting due to me starting a new job this summer and buying our first home at the end of the year.
DH wants to start sooner because he thinks it could take a long time. But, I know so many girls who sneezed and got pg the first time!
My friend who recently got pg with her second told me her doctor said 5 months of trying was very FAST! And it took her 7 months to conceive her first. I know that everyone is different and it could happen at any point in time but... I was just curious to see how long it took those of you who have a child to conceive your first?
What a fun time that will be for you! I hope you are able to get pregnant right away so you can announce at the holidays
It took us 3 months to get pregnant, but in my head I thought it would take at least 6 so I was really surprises/happy when didn't take as long. There are a lot of people who catch the egg on the first go and a lot of others who take longer. Try not to be discouraged if it takes longer- remember that it WILL happen, its just a matter of when! Good luck!
We started trying earlier (3 months before our wedding) thinking it would take ages, first cycle was january And unfortunately my gran passed away so we knew we'd missed my O date, next cycle I conceived, bfp was March. So 2 cycles although I tend not to count the first!
You just never know until you start trying, it took my mum 2 years with both me and my sister so we both thought we were in for a long time ttc, she fell pregnant first cycle too.
The average couple takes between 6-12 months to conceive. For us, we conceived before we really started trying, but suffered a miscarriage. A month after the mc, I found out I was pregnant again. We were trying lots at that point!!
First month both times technically, second was only a few days after having my coil removed and there being a split condom 4 days away from ovulation! (We were trying soon just trying to avoid Christmas...I ended up with Christmas Eve as my due date ) the women in my family seem to fall very quickly, I think all my aunties and my mum fell first time with each child, very strange.
