    After #1 we were basically NTNP right away and actively trying at 9 months PP. We got pregnant at 10 months PP.

    This time, we started trying at 9 months again. We are in the middle of cycle 2.

    I came off the pill when E was just over a year old but we p'n'pd for the best part of a year, knowing full well that it could happen but half heartedly preventing. I was so sure an oops would be the only way I would agree to a second! Three months before E's second birthday, we started getting lapse with the preventing. We only DTD twice during that time and, guess what?

    It's our ambition to ttc when DS is about 1.5. We really have some family goals we need to hit before ttc. So long as we hit it then we'll try around that time.

    DS was 13 months when we started TTC #2. We started early because we thought it might take a lot longer this time around. Well, apparently not bc I got pregnant right away! We'll see if we try for a 3rd - still up for discussion on that one!

    i got pregnant with DD2 when DD1 was 2y1m because of a timing error. we were planning on actively trying within a couple months of that time frame.

    We started TTC when our first was 2.5. Honestly I could not even contemplate it before she was 2. I got pregnant the first month, but miscarried early enough the doctor said I could try right away. So I got pregnant the next cycle and that baby is now 4 weeks old.

    We started trying when my son was 9 months old. Had 2 miscarriages and finally at sticky pregnancy when he was 26 months old.

    We are NTNP now. LO will be 8 months on Saturday. We got pregnant right away last time. I am still breastfeeding regularly (and at night), even though he is eating solids now, so no clue if I even could get pregnant now, but we would be happy.

    LO #1 was 2 months when we started trying. I've been ready for a while for baby #3 but have been having some health issues so it won't happen anytime soon unfortunately.

    Dd was about 1.5 when we started actively trying. Before that we were ntnp for awhile. It still took 10 more calendar months.

    The week of DS1's second birthday. Which was also the same week I defended my PhD dissertation, which is what I had been waiting for to happen before we started TTC. Otherwise we would started several months sooner.

    We started when DS turned 1. It took nine months and they are 28 months apart. If we go for #3, I would want to start trying when this LOnox 1 also.

    We started trying when DS was 16 months because of my age. But it ended up taking a little over 10 months to get a sticky baby. So the age difference between my boys will be almost 3 years.

    We stopped using BC when LO1 was a year old and got pregnant that first cycle. So they are 21 months apart. We'll wait at least until LO2 is 1.5 to try for LO3.

    When my period came back, which was 15 months pp. we got pregnant right away, but didn't get a sticky pregnancy until six months later. We will do the same again, but no sooner than nine months pp.
