Chances first month?
10

If we dtd during O and have no fertility issues (got pregnant with ds after dtd once after 10yrs of depo shot) what are the chances that i'll get pregnant in the first month? I read 20-25% but that was just random chance and not specifically during O. Worried that I was just super lucky the first time and may have trouble getting pregnant right away this time... TIA!

I've no advice for you on this one afraid as I'm in the same boat as you. DS was a total whoops while we were using BC so he really wanted to be born :P This is our first cycle TTC and I know realistically that the chances are lower of a BFP first cycle round. Still, that being said, we could be the lucky ones. Best of luck and baby dust!

You read correctly...even when all the stars line up and everything is perfect for both parties, you still only have about a 25% chance to get pregnant each month. Until you spend a while TTC, that doesn't ever really hit you on how hard this road is. ;) My first 2 children were a happy lucky surprise, my 3rd was a month try to perfection and than my 4th....10 long hard and difficult months to get pregnant. Hopefully you're one of the lucky ones and this is it but don't get discouraged if it's not. We have a great set of women on this board that are very supportive! Good Luck!

I read the samething, so when I tried my first month I was thinking that it would take a few months to get prego.. well it didn't. I got pregnant on the first month.

That's what I figured the first go round and it happened the first time. Now I kind of half expect it to and I'm afraid I'm getting my hopes up and setting myself up for dissappointment. I told myself it was no big deal if it took a few months, but the truth is that I want it now really badly. Hate being so impatient...

Same thing happened with my DD. Got pg right away, and now I'm starting cycle #2 for this go-round. Hope it doesn't take too long.....

Even if you are healthy, no fertility problems, in your 20s and time everything perfectly you still only have a 25% chance of getting pregnant. It is a miracle any of us are here. LOL My first I got pregnant after having sex ONE TIME. My second took 3 1/2 years. You just have no way of knowing how long it will take.
