    I know kids are in our future and I wanted to get an idea of how long you had to try before becoming pregnant? I was out on a walk with a friend today and she said it took them 6 months so it got me thinking about how long it takes other women!

    It took us 1 month with our first child. I am currently pregnant with our second child and it took us a year this time around.

    By the time we had been married for four years, we had three children. Guess it didn't take us long.

    12 months (plus mild fertility drugs) for the first child. For the second one, we just thought about having another child and there he was.:wub:

    I think I got pregnant before I had "relations" with my husband because my son was born before he should have been....well, never mind.

    Shouldbe, that gave me a giggle because my son will be born before he 'should have been' in some peoples eyes :rolleyes:

    We conceived our son just thinking about getting pregnant. I consider myself very very lucky. He'll be making his debut in June!

    It took us 3 years- I never went the fertility drug route, but I did read this fertility book that helped; while reading it I got pregnant and my 3 month old son is sleeping as I write this! :)

    1st pregnancy--one night
    2nd pregnancy--6-7 months
    3rd pregnancy--we were not trying. Hurricane Andrew had hit and we did not have electricity for a week so!!!

    Thank God by the time Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, and Gustav hit I had a hysterectomy or I might have a few more.
