    Hello!

    I am new to the forum (although have been lerking for a while)! I got married in September last year and have been TTC since August so thats 5 months, although my period is late at the moment I'm positive its coming soon (it certainly feels that way)

    I just feel like it never going to happen for us :-( I was just wondering how long others have been trying? Or how long it has taken for people to conceive?

    Hello!

    Thank you for your reply and thank you for luck. I hope so, I know its not an easy task the conceiving business but everyone around me is starting to get pregnant and most arent even trying!

    I hope you get your baby very soon :)

    This is my second month TTC. My first and second took the first month. I just had a miscarriage in Nov that was also a first try BFP. I'm 38, so I was kind of expecting it to take a while. I hope we catch it this month though.

    Good luck on getting your BFP! I've read somewhere that the average is 4 cycles, but I could be completely remembering it wrong...

    I'm about midway through cycle 12 trying for our first. It feels like we've been waiting forever sometimes.

    I've been trying for a year now with no luck. :( Was on the pill for 6 years so I know it can take a while but getting really impatient and frustrated now.

    Just keep practising :sex: may as well have some fun at the same time :)

    We are on our 3 month TTC 2nd, and I think this cycle is a write of as I took, SOy and I think its stopped me ovulating :(.

    Our first only took 2 cycles to conceive so I can't expect to be that lucky again. I have just come off the Implant so it might take a while I hear.

    it took us 13 tries to get pregnant with the baby we miscarried, and we're just starting our 4th cycle after the miscarriage.

    I know exactly what you mean! With the couples I know who got married a year before or a year after we did, all but one got preggo in less than four months and had (or are having) a healthy baby - I think three of the couples had their baby like right at 9 1/2 to 10 months after their wedding, and the only other baby-less couple is wanting to wait a few years. So, yeah, I know what you mean when it feels like everyone is able to pop them out without trying, but then I found this wonderful forum, and now I don't feel as alone!

    i agree.. and it's very discouraging with all these people having babies! we got married 9 months ago, and 2 friends just had babies (within the last 2 days). it makes it harder because it makes me realize that at this point i could've had a baby in my arms, had everything gone according to plan. BUT it makes us stronger, and i know i will be so blessed with that day finally comes!

    Thank you everyone for replying, I am pleased I found this forum everyone is so lovely and you have made me realise that its normal to take this long or longer. I shall try my hardest to be patient!

    I am now 3 days late for period, took a Superdrug test today which I think was BFN I thought I saw a line but total wishful thinking I think lol.

    Fingers crossed for you all
