I have hear that the averag time it takes to conceive is 6 months or longer. Just a question for those who have conceived, how long did it take you?

I read it could take up to a year to conceive, so we a__sumed it would and began trying about 6 months before our targeted conception date. We got pregnant the first try. Keeping this in mind, we aren't going to ttc baby # 3 until the targeted date.
