Hi Ladies,

Can I just ask how many cycles you had to go through until you got your BFPs??

Thanks in advance x x

Fantastic news congratulations! How are you feeling? x

I feel in absolute UTTER shock!!!
I just don't believe it!!!

It is our first month of trying and I was told it could take ages as I only had my Mirena removed about 6 weeks ago!! Plus we have only had sex 3 times this month!!!

I honestly just don't believe it.

I love these threads... Just enjoy it Op. when I found out I uploaded a couple of Apps that have been great for learning what's happening every day.. Got a bit obessive. Ha ha ha. One is called Preganancy HD and the other is called Sprout.. Fantastic and so delighted for you and your other half... grin

Straight away every time, in my mid 30s. I wasn't ovulating every month, but it was (painfully) obvious when I did and didn't.

17 years - so that would be in the region of 204 cycles.

1st time unplanned, 2nd one 18 years later 1st month (but had miscarriage), 3rd one second month, now have been trying for 27 months with not a hint of a BFP!!!
Good luck with yours.

First pregnancy was an accident while I was on the pill but ended in miscarriage at 7 weeks.

Second pregnancy was planned and took us three months. I'm about 15 weeks now.

Has taken us 3 years for first bfp. I am 20 yrs old and didnt go to the doctor about not convieving as worried what the outcome would be.. Tested 9 times im still in shock. Currently 8 wks first scan on friday x

First cycle off the pill and I'm 33 (in fact I think I conceived week after my 33 birthday) - bump is due in 2 weeks...
I was so blasé that although I was taking folic acid we actually conceived after a month of loads of partying and caffeine fuelled work so I guess we were just very lucky!
We did have lots of sex though but not on a particular day/using fertility charts.

Took just under 2 years with DC1. Decided that it was time to try for DC2 last month, and got a BFP yesterday! shock smile grin
