For my fam, it has been different for all of us.
My grandmother was fond of saying she didn't plan a single one of her four pregnancies.
It took my mother 7 months to conceive me (I'm the oldest of four) but then my (youngest) sister was a total surprise and unplanned.
My middle sister got pregnant with her first after 2 months of trying, but it took her 6 months of trying to get her second little boy.
My brother (don't know if he counts too??) tried with his wife for 11 months to get their first, and now they have 3 babies under the age of 3!
My baby sister doesn't have kids yet, but she has had issues with her period all her life, so we are anxious for her.
Interesting question though...Mother of Harold Jonathan, nn Hal

@whitegold - Interesting question! Actually, my parents had a lot of trouble conceiving me (I'm their eldest child). They tried for four years. I don't know all the gory details, but I'll probably ask my mum soon! That's why my mum doesn't really like discussing baby names with me - she doesn't want me to get my hopes up in case we take a long time to get pregnant. However, she got pregnant with my younger brother quickly. Hopefully her issues won't affect me at all. As for everyone else in my family, one of my cousins used IVF to conceive her daughter. My husband has a cousin who used IVF to conceive her son, too, and another cousin who tried for two years before conceiving (she's currently pregnant with her second child). My SIL (husband's sister) conceived her daughter on their first month trying. I don't know about everyone else!
Also, I'll just add that my first period off birth control was very light, too. My periods since (I've been off the pill for about six months now) have all been quite light - lighter than I remember them being from before I went on the pill.

@whitegold - my mother got pregnant as easily as breathing. She has had four children (two being "surprises", one of which when she was 44), and I suspect multiple abortions. None of the other women in my family (grandmothers, aunts, sister) have had any trouble conceiving. I always assumed because of this that getting pregnant would be very, very easy for me. Not so much.November 2007 - Started TTC

@whitegold, I'm one of four kids and my mother had no trouble conceiving any of us. My father comes from a family of 6 kids so no fertility issues there either. My own health issues were supposed to mean that I was not fertile, but I went ahead and conceived Mila while on the mini pill so I am hoping that's a sign all is ok. My sister has two daughters - her first was also a surprise and the second one did not take long to conceive. Neither of my brothers have kids yet. None of these things are guarantees, of course.
@violetink, best of luck. It does sound like a positive sign.
I'm so very very nauseous today but I am *finally* ovulating (or just about to) - day 19 of my cycle! So I'm happy about that. I was starting to think I wouldn't.Mother to miss Mila Arden. Expecting her brother Cato Bennett in March 2014

@whitegold: My mother got pregnant with me (the eldest) and my brother (six years later) within their first month of trying. Her mother had eight children all close in age and out of her three sisters, two have children (although one has endometriosis) and the other was never able to have children. On my dad's side, my grandmother had four children easily and one of my aunts was never able to have children (for reasons unknown to me) and my other aunt had two children very close in age. I have very few girls cousin's and only two have had children; one conceived on accident and the other took years and years trying and had many miscarriages before she conceived her son who was born just a few months ago.
My husband's family is full of Fertile Myrtles. He is one of four children and between his three siblings our family has been blessed with seven nieces and nephews. I honestly think it will be hit or miss with me. Fingers crossed!Married to my Best Friend.
Trying for our first.
