After trying to fall pregnant for 2 1/2 years, my husband and I finally made a baby. Our beautiful little girl is now 21 months old and full of energy. We have decided to start trying for another baby this month. I am worried that it will take a long time to conceive again. The first time we were TTC we waited 1 year until seeking help. We both went through testing and our specialist advised that it wouldn’t be impossible for us to conceive naturally, but it wouldn’t be easy either. Turns out my husband didn’t have as many little swimmers as he should have. We did fall pregnant naturally (we were planning our wedding and decided to concentrate on baby making after our honeymoon, but found out a week before our wedding day that I was pregnant). I am anxious that now we have made the decision to TTC again, we will go through all of the stress like last time. And I know stress can make matters worse. Not to mention I am now a working mum with a very busy toddler to look after. I guess I should stop worrying, allow life to take its course and be thankful that we were already blessed with one child. But I’m just so nervous and there’s this nagging feeling inside me that says we were lucky once.

  • You never know, you might fall pregnant right away! Even if not, try not to worry about it and live life as usual. Just think of a second baby as an extra gift that will come when the time is right. Best of luck to you!


  • second attempts


  • hope you didn’t stress and you got what you wanted


  • You just never know. A friend of mine had a lot of trouble conceiving the first time, and finally did after a lot of medical intervention. Baby No 2 came along unexpectedly while they weren’t even trying. You just never know. Relax, enjoy you baby and just let life happen. You may be surprised!


  • Well just dont stress. and you are very lucky to have conceived the first one. Me not so much


  • Unlike last time you didn’t have any children. If you focus on your day to day things and not focus on trying I can see this time it will be different you will conceive quickly. All your circumstances are so different this time


  • Dont quote me as everyone is different but I have a similar story to yours. I have pcos and was told would probably never have children because of the severity and if did have a chance it would be IVF. After many years of trying and at 34 I fell pregnant naturally and had a premmie at 25 weeks but she was our miracle sent from heaven and when she was 21 months old we thought let’s try again as my age and dr said it might take awhile if at 6 months nothing we will do something about it. First month of trying I fe pregnant it was the best news and now I have 2 beautiful girls. So good luck and get busy (fingers crossed)

    • Oh wow! I bet that was a shock falling preggers so soon!


  • Try and relax hun I fell pregnant with my son without even trying but when he was 4 months old we decided to start trying for another and it took me 16 months to fall pregnant. Who knows your body may surprise u and u may fall pregnant really fast
