We got pregnant on our first cycle ntnp but it ended in m/c... after that it took 5 cycles to get pregnant again.

B was a gigantic surprise and this is our first time TTC and I think I have unrealistic expectations.

6 for us!

The 2nd cycle both time. The 1st cycle for A I was pretty sure we missed our chance since I think I O'ed right before our wedding. This time around we were NTNP the first month and then the second month we actually tried.

I haven't been pregnant yet.
I don't really know how to measure this since I'm a bit of a weird case lol... I've been TTC for 10 months (NTNP for 3 months before that) and I have not become pregnant... however I have only ovulated twice in all that time.

DS1 was NTNP (and only 2 months after our wedding), and it only took one cycle with DS2. I had a miscarriage between my two pregnancies.

4th cycle off bcp but really 3rd cycle trying--I was traveling during ovulation in our 3rd cycle so we had zero shot then!

3rd with DS. DD was a surprise

For us it was technically the third cycle, but it was the first cycle we timed perfectly.

It took us 4 but I know we had some timing issues in prior cycles.

2, but I was coming off of BC and my cycles were like, 55 days and up.

The first time it took one cycle. That ended in a mc. LO was conceived the first month we started trying again. We're TTC now, and it has taken a couple of months with no BFP. I feel like maybe the first two times were a fluke and we're going to have to wait a while for our next baby.
@PEAPIE: I think timing is our issue. I guess I'm not very in tune with my body. I've gotten pregnant twice accidentally and our first cycle trying was way off. We didn't use OPKs or anything, I just guessed. And guessed wrong.
@Weagle: same with us!

Here's my "other": when we first started TTC, I got pg on the 2nd cycle. Lost it. A whole stinkin' year later, finally got pg again. Lost that. Tried for 4 months after that with nothing. Got pg on my first cycle using injectables w/ trigger.

Our first pregnancy it took me 2. With my current pregnancy, it only took 1.

It took us a while....23 cycles to be exact. Literally was going to go to the RE to start IVF and found out we were pregnant. Now I'm 28 weeks!
@littlek: I was temping and doing opks. It just took three cycles of figuring it all out!

9 cycles with help from injections and an IUI...felt like an eternity but since we were blessed with twins, I don't have to ever to through that again!
@littlek: We're not temping or doing OPKs either. Neither of us wanted to get that "into" it unless we've gone months (like 6+) without a BFP. It's hard because I want to be in a bit more control of the process, but I also know that I'm prone to really getting my hopes up. And, I know I don't have ultimate control anyway.

3rd month, 4th cycle. It was my second cycle temping.

Our first month NTNP. I'd been off BCP for over a year so I think that helped.
honeydew / 7916 posts
Took 13 cycles, lost that one, then 5 which was a c/p, and pregnant again on the next cycle.
ETA: Also m/c several years ago but I wouldn't count the years in between we were avoiding!
pomelo / 5228 posts
First time it took 9 cycles (loss), then another 6 (another loss), now we're on the 3rd cycle trying again.
@Weagle: I'm doing OPKs this cycle and I attempted temping but I'm a failure at temping. LOL.

1st cycle for me (temping, OPKs, the works). That ended in mc, then we conceived DD two cycles after that.
@spaniellove: How are things? I think of you often and hope everything is going well for you this time.
@Cherrybee: Thank you - we're going back at the end of the week to hopefully hear the heartbeat!
@spaniellove: I didn't know you were pregnant!!! Congrats!!

I think I'm on cycle 29. I don't really keep track anymore. We've been trying 2.5 years.

We succeeded on our first try, but I had been tracking my cycles for 2 years at that point and have never been on birth control.
