It took my husband and I a year and a half. At the year mark we even went and saw a fertility specialist who after testing said we were fine. Why do you think it takes some people longer then others even if their tests all come back normal?

They say stress can affect the body and or inflammation. Some people may have trouble the first time but then have no problem with the next pregnancy! It's tough to say.

It took my 6 years and then 3 years between my two.

For us it was the first try each time... we are super fertile.. so I think it has to do with the woman's eggs and man's sperm meshing well.. like maybe my husband has super strong/ fast swimmers, where some men's maybe go a little slower? I honestly don't know haha😂 . I think God has his hand in the timing of it too, but I know not everyone believe in that sort of thing...

I totally know the feeling love, two years to get our first! It is rough when you want a baby so bad and it isn't happening...but it makes it that much sweeter when it finally does!

This will be our first child...we were married six years ago when we were both 22...we decided to wait to start a family...we had just graduated from college...so we wanted to settle into our careers and gain financial stability first...but she will be a joyous arrival and well worth the wait...now we won't stress so much and we will be welcoming her into a secure and loving home and family.

I think for a lot of people "trying" can actually make it take longer because of the pressure/stress. We tried for about 6 months, then decided that maybe we would wait and BOOM, we got pregnant lol

I agree with Meagan! Sometimes the over tracking and complicating can get in the way.

Some times you just have to let things take place when they're meant to.

It took me a while actually to conceive, I want to say at least 5 or 6 months.

With my first, it took us 18 months. With my second, it only took 8 or 9 months. I would say there was no real difference between the two. I think stress played a major role in how long it took for the first. With the second, we really weren't stressing about it so...

I went off the pill in December & missed my period in January & found out we were pregnant. I think it might have been because we just weren't stressing about it. We figured it would take months because of being on the pill for 5 years but apparently not. I swear that the lake of stress played a big factor.

This was us too. We didn't have to try. I don't understand why it's harder for some and so easy for others. We did lose a baby between 2 and 3 though, it made that 3rd pregnancy so very special to me. And then 4 was unplanned...on the last day of my period...

I agree with Meagan's post.  I think that "trying" takes the joy and fun out of the "baby-making" process (intimacy).  I had a relative try with her husband for years to conceive.  Unfortunately, they never had success.  He had various medical issues that didn't make him incapable of conception, but did add stress, and I don't think that helped.

Yes...we were "trying" and I was following an app on my phone to track when I was ovulating and when would be the best time to conceive.  It took the fun out of it and made it so stressful on me and my husband.  After about 6 months of that and not conceiving, I turned off the app and let the stress go.  We were pregnant about 1 month after that!

I stopped birth control and the same month I got pregnant. I know thats really fast and I honestly wasn't expecting it what so ever. I was happy but it came as kind of a shock because everyone told us we might have to wait like 6 months so thats more so what I was expecting!

It has been over 2 years for us.  Both my husband and I had issues of our own. I would recommend to anyone trying that they get tested early so you know what you are up against.

Took about two years after we got married. I was excited. Unfortunately it ended in a miscarriage. Since then we've had two kids. 

Lily posted this 05 February 2019

Just about a month after we got married. We were really going at utr it not to happen😌

It toke my husband and I 3 years to conceive our 1st together 

Christina posted this 08 February 2019

Our first pregnancy happened really fast but then we lost the baby at 9 weeks.  That was a very tough time for both of us.  I thought that because the first was so easy it would happen fast again but it didn't.  It probably took another year or so for us to have our first child. Be patient and try to enough the private time with your husband I know for us trying to time it and track everything took the fun out of it.
