My dd is 3 and half and she started talking of babies, So i started thinking of one too..

I was on Pills, Microgynon for almost 2 years. I have stopped taking pills in August. Got periods in September and then in Oct first week. After that it is two months and no sign of "P" ; other than occassional cramps like Periods Pain and spotting.. Did pregnancy test every week last month, all came out negative.

Is this normal? Anyone had similar experiece? Do i need to consult a GP?

How long did it take to you all to conceive your second one?? I am worried and never tought it will take much time..

When we decided to try to get pregnant we had sex every other day from the last day of my cycle to when the first day was due of my next cycle. That got us our son. When we were thinking of trying for #2, I tried to find out when I was going to ovulate. I tracked my cycles on the calendar and had sex every day for 4 days around ovulation. Started 2 days before and kept at it until 2 days after. We were rewarded with a very stressful pregnancy which resulted with our daughter. For the pregnancy I'm currently nuturing, I was have a cycle every 2 weeks. I was at a loss as to what was going on and told my husband that the only way to stop my cycles was to get pregnant. I looked at the calendar and figured out when I thought I would ovulate and we had sex every night that weekend and voila, I got pregnant. My advice is to have sex often and relax. If you're too stressed it won't happen. Relax and enjoy.

I don't want to damper your spirits but we started trying for baby no3 when our, now 6yr old daughter, was only 14mths and I was pregnant within 3mths but unfortunately lost it. Kept trying but then went on the pill for a bit before trying again. Got pregnant but lost it again. It's been 5yrs this Jan since we started trying and its only now i'm going for tests and giving up. I hope you get pregnant quick and have a healthy little brother or sister for your daughter :)

TRy going to your doctor for a blood test, every pregnancy is different, just because you got a positive home pregnancy test with your first it doesn't mean you will with this one. And like other ladies have said it can take up to a year after you come off birth control. I got lucky the second time around and very surprised the third lol. However no period and cramping can be signs of severl different things including pregnancy see about a blood test from your doctor.

with my second it was super quick and unplanned. My oldest two are only 18mo's apart but between my 2nd and 3rd it took 7yrs and between my 3rd & 4th it took 5yrs.

Also I come from a VERY fertile family (my dad comes from a family of 13 kids, my mom from a family of 8 kids), and was pregnant right away, although I did not take any hormonal birth control for health reasons. Used condoms before we had babies and since then. I am 37 now. Had my first at 33 and second at 34.

Give it some time. Typically a fertility DR won't see you until you have been TTC for at least 12 months to no avail. Your best bet is to try 2 weeks after the first day of your last period, assuming you have a 28 day cycle. Also, give your body a chance to adjust to not being on BC anymore, sometimes this takes several months. Good luck!

Just wanted to add, i'm not trying to scare you or anything, it's reality, but stay positive. Most usually conceive within 6 months.

Some conceive within the first month and some can take up to a year if you are under the age of 35 (which you are) before a doctor will send you to a specialist. I personally, have been extremely lucky I conceived within the first month with my first and second, and within 2 months with my third. I can tell you, I know of others who conceived fairly easily with their first and now it has been over a year with nothing happening. For another, it has been 3 years now and they are going through other testing to see why.
