Pregnant after 35
Options

How long did it take for you to get pregnant?

I'm 35 ( 36 in march) and thinking of trying for baby #2.  We were very lucky and got pregnant the first month with baby #1 when I was 34. I know everyone's experience is different, I'm just curious for those of you that didn't have to take anything additional- how long it took for you to get pregnant?

    The first pregnancy, I was 36 and got pregnant on the second cycle.  This one ended in a mc. 
    Then I got pregnant at 37 a few months later on the third cycle, but that was a very early loss.
    This time, it was our second try, right after the early loss....

    I almost feel guilty replying, but after lots of months of wondering if we should have another, we left it up to chance exactly once and I got pregnant. I'm 39, will be 40 when I'm due. It's still really early (6 wks). Same with my son who we had 9 years ago...one slip and I was pregnant!

    At 28, it took about 6 weeks (from the date I stopped taking the Pill to conception, I never had a period). At 33, it took 3 months. At 36, it took about 9 months.

    2nd cycle with DS at 35 (had him at 36). 1st cycle with #2 (age 38) but it unfortunately ended in missed miscarriage at 9 weeks. We had a one month wait following the m/c once my cycle came back and got pregnant on the 2nd cycle trying. I'll be 39 in a few days.

    Had my IUD (Mirena) removed in June, so we had 1 month of "fun" sex.

    Got pregnant in November, so 5 months.

    Took 4 years. I am 35. Unexplained infertility. Ended up getting pregnant naturally. Finally! So happy it has happened.

    #1 - about a year, PG after HSG
    This one - we weren't even trying (but obviously were weren't avoiding either). I honestly can't believe it happened and I'm glad because TTCing was not enjoyable at all.

    For our daughter it took 5 cycles. The last 3 were intense with charting, OPKs, all kinds of supplements....

    This time? First cycle. Nothing fancy. I'm in shock. I was 31 last time! This time? 38. I exercise daily now. Eat clean. Avoid BPA like the plague. Use mostly natural products.... I think all that helped my cause this time? Or maybe I was just plain lucky.

    A friend was the opposite though. 32 with her first. Pregnant on cycle one. Took her 18 months for her second at 37. It's so weird!!

    I count myself very blessed to have conceived the first time (at age 36) on our first month of trying. And now at almost 39 we conceived during our second month of trying. Since I was breastfeeding my first and knew I would be TTC soon after I continued the prenatal vitamins.
