First one, 3 months. Second one, immediately (15 months apart), wasn't exactly planned, but wasn't prevented either. Third we had a miscarriage, then 3 months later with #3. This one took about 3 months also.
My cycles are anywhere from 40-60 days, so their rather unpredictable and hard to plan around. But we're a pretty "active" couple, so it helped (if you know what I mean).

My partner and I decided lets have a baby.. i went on some website and looked up my ovulation date being July 15th.. As i lived in Melbourne, and he lived in Queensland - we actually had that exact night together, and only that night - as i was working up north, and on my way back home. We fell pregnant from that one time!! Straight away!!

As if trying to get pregnant isn't hard enough without the 'experts' ignoring all the other things that you could be doing to help your fertility. The pain, tears and heartache that you felt month after month must be unbearable. One practitioner swore black and blue that my timing was out and that was all I had to fix, I believed her! I spent weeks focusing on timing! Was it helpful, only a little, was there other things I could have been doing at the same time to increase my chances of getting pregnant? Yes, yes, yes! I know you need this information and more importantly you deserve to have it! You have the right to know how to lift your chances of getting pregnant to the absolute maximum possible so that one day you will hold the baby of your dreams like I did.

I maybe had unprotected sex once, and then I was pregnant. It was a big surprise since I have PCOS, so Its suppose to be difficult to get pregnant.
I have know a few people who tried for along time and once they got pregnant, they just kept getting pregnant! like they had problems conceiving but once it happened, it was easy for them to have more kids. I'm not sure if there is science behind that or if its just coincidence, but don't give up, you'll get pregnant sooner or later! :)

My husband and I were married in1997 and tried for several years we also had tried fertility drugs with no success and they couldnt find any reason we couldn't get pregnant. Then in 2008 we found out that I had miscarried at about 2 months we tried again for several moths after that then we decided we were ok with the fact it would just be us 2 growing old together and then in August of 09 to our surprise we found out I was pregnant our perfect little boy was born April 2010.

Both of my beautiful girls were surprises. My friend jokes that I should have named them Yasmine and Tricyclin after the types of BC I was on when I got pregnant. My husband and I must be very fertile as I never missed a pill (same time every day). I feel they were ment to be and feel blessed every day to have them but I don't trust the pill anymore lol. :)

my birthday was 8/3 went off my birth control on 8/5 tried for two weeks strate and then I said no more if I am not prego I am not going to be until next year. I didn't want to be during the summer. My husband would not let me take a pregnancy test until I had missed my period. So on 9/4 when I should have gotten it I took the test and I was prego and it was confirmed by drs that I was on 9/5. My family has been calling me fertile myrtle. I kept being told it would take 6months to a year.

It took my husband and I 4 1/2 years. After trying for 2 years we went to a fertility doctor. That didn't help. Finally after not going to the fertility doctor for 2 years I finally got pregnant. We were even considering adopting, but couldn't aford to. She's our little miracle child.

We had been actively trying for probably 6 months (before that we just hadn't used any protection for about a year and a half), but we actually were fighting and so not being very intimate at the time. So it was quite a surprise when I found out lol!

my first was a surprise when i was 18 and then hubby and i got married and it took us just over 2 years to get pregnant the second time around. not really sure what took so long but it was a very long tough 2 years. now we are at 23 weeks and very very excited. Guess it just was not our time before now!

My husband had a vasectomy several years ago, but never went back to find out if it worked or not so we made the decision to have a baby, knew our chances were slim but not impossible naturally. We decided to go with IVF after our wedding. So for the first 15 months we tried naturally, with no luck (although I do often wonder about one month where my period came after a 46 day cycle - I was normally 28-31 day cycles) then the month after our wedding we did our first IVF. I fell pregnant but miscarried at 5 weeks. We waited a month then went again and here we are!

Lesse, my first one it took about 2 months, my second one it took 6 months, and this one itonly took a little less than a month. My periods are weird though. When I get pregnant, I have a very short period, and that's how I knew I was pregnant.

With our first we got pregnant the first month we tried. This time around we had been trying 4 months, when I got pregnant, but then miscarried at 6 weeks(early June). We decided that we were not going to try in the month of July (our daughter was concieved in July and we didn't want to be on the same schedule-she was born 12 weeks early and I knew it would freak me out). Guess July is a pretty fertile month for me, I am due 3 days after my daughter was.
