Re: over 40 and TTC #1?

Not 40 yet, but i'm 38 and a half. But still know how u feel. Ideally i would have loved to have gotten started early, but first marriage didn't work and it took a while before Mr. Right came along. Girl in my office just had first baby at 42, and another one of our good friends just got pregnant at 41. You will get your baby!

Going to be 38 this year. Trying for # 1.
Always thought I would be married and have all my kids before I turned 30- just goes to show things don't always turn out as planned!

Re: over 40 and TTC #1?

With the help of a DR I got pregnant at 43 with my first child.. Just get blood work done see where you are at in that area as far as your FSH levels and tubes .. If your all clear than you are in a great place.. Unfortunately I waited to do the test so It took alot longer.. And also have your husband get his sperm tested if he has never had children either ..Low sperm counts in men are more common than you think.

I am by no means trying to scare you or put a damper on your Chat Icon I just feel as a woman who got married at 39 I needed to share this experience with you.. If you ever have any questions or need to talk you can FM me at any time .. Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Chat Icon Good luck.. Dont give up!!!!!!!

Re: over 40 and TTC #1?

I'm hitting my mid 30's..and DH and I are trying for our first! They say it's good to have them early in life but sometimes you can't always plan it will happen that way! My advice is don't get stressed! If you think about it and do every precaution there is out there to get pregnant you'll make yourself crazy! Take Pre-natal vitamins before you even conceive..go to the gyno to get checked out. DH I decided to TTC in January. We kept trying without me going to the dr to get checked out. Now since this will be cycle 6 and this abnormal stuff that is going on with my body I am going to see her next week. DH is saying that we probably will get pregant even faster!..lol Just relax have fun!! I wish you lots and lots of baby dust!!!Chat Icon

Re: over 40 and TTC #1?

I'm 39 and thinking of going for #3.... well after we were "done." Since it's been some time, we have no idea what we are up against. I just can't shake the feeling of wanting another.

Same story for me. I have a 9 & 10 yo, and though I've gone back and forth from saying I'm done or I'm not sure, deep inside I've always had that feeling that I wasnt done--I just wasn't ready until now. I'm 41 BTW!
