I have a 14 month old son and my husband and I are trying for number 2. Our first guy was a surprise...no planning at all...but now that we want to expand our family I wonder how long it will take to become pregnant. I haven't been on the pill since before my first pregnancy and I've been keeping track of my cycle (which is pretty regular). Has anyone used the ovulation predictors? I'm trying not to worry or think too much, but I'm normal and I want to be pregnant again! With that being said, how long did it take you?

It took us 6 months of trying for a second baby (which ended up with twins!). I used the ovulation predictors and it helped.

Hi, about 6 months after I got married we decided to try for a baby, so I went off the pill and I fell pregnant straight away, with baby number 1. I am now 17weeks pregnant with baby number 2 and it took us 8 months to get pregnant. It was hard because we fell pregnant the first time so quickly. I thought it might take longer the 2nd time but I didn't think it would take this long. The month I got pregnant was the month I really gave up trying.



Try not to worry about it too much, when it's your time it will happen. Good luck

There was a thread I read earlier about this same topic and the shortest amount of time I read was 2 weeks. We're planning for number 2 as well and I just got off of the pill. I had my period like normal last week so we'll know in a few weeks whether or not we've succeeded lol. ;) If you;ve been tracking your cycle though you best chances are to try a lot about 2 weeks after your period. Good luck! ;)

I am in the exact same boat as you! My daughter is 14 months and my husband and I decided to try for baby number 2 at the start of last month, unfortunately last month I got my period and this month also :( its just so frustrating and I really feel it getting me down,but I guess thats just human nature when we decide we want something we want it now!!!

I'm not pregnant yet (period is suppose to come around the 23rd) so we shall see. I think I need to take the attitude..."what happens will happen..."
Thank you for all the posts! I appreciate it.

Thanks ladies - you're all very encouraging!
I've been taking a prenatal vitamin for some time now just to help me out (plus the folic acid). I reallllly hope this is the month, but I'll do my best not to fixate on it. In the meantime I'll just pounce on my hubby! haha!

I was worried about the same thing but now I am pregnant with our second one. Our 1st is 13 months old she was a suprise as we were not trying for her. We had tried for the last few months to get pregnant again but I am now 5 weeks pregnant. The ovulation strips heled me a lot. As well as my husband went on some tablets called Menevit. It really helped us as he was only on them for 1 month and we fell preganant. I would ask a pharmacy if they have anything that a male can take to increase things on their side. As well as I had been told to take vitamins as the last child probably has taken all your healthy vitamins and you are not yet back to your normal levels. So that should help too. Good luck.

I have a set of two year old b/g twins and we're expecting their little brother July 13th with a planned c-section. He was a surprise since I was on the pill when we conceived him, but once the surprise wore off we couldn't be happier.

After my first son it was a year before I had a period(due to nursing), but then during my 3rd cycle I got pregnant(surprise!). I'm now trying to get pregnant with #3 and have had my period 2x. I am using ovulation predictors and am using methods to try and conceive a daughter but even though I'm "following directions"(having sex during ovulation etc) it hasn't happened yet. I'm hoping this will be the month, I guess I'm a little impatient ;-) I hope it's gonna be your month too! =)
