Anyone over 45 trying to conceive or does anyone know someone 45 or older that's pregnant? According to doctors and everyone else, 45 is to old, eggs are to old, etc. Better to keep your mouth shut so you don't hear any negative bs like I have all the time. Hey, if your ovulating, no matter what age, you have a chance. Age is just a number. I can't believe how people make such a big deal about age. I know there could be complications in an older woman, but it can happen to a younger woman to. If it's meant to be, it will be. If I had a child when I was young, I would of been broke, divorced, struggling, trying to find a date that would accept you having a kid, etc. Now I am financially secure, great husband, and

We have had women over 45 on this board and there are many on the TTC 40+ board. I highly recommend you check that board out as well. So many wonderful supportive women w/ tons of info. I was on the board on and off for 2 years.

Hi there. I've been active on this board for over two years now and I can tell you that there have been several women 45 or older who conceived naturally and went on to deliver beautiful babies. I'm sure the odds are lower than a woman who's in her twenties or even thirties, but it definitely, positively, absolutely happens. More frequently than I think many people realize. : ) I co-sign on the recommendation to check out the TTC Over 40 Board if you already haven't. Here's a link to it (below). You'll find TONS of information, support, and advice from the ladies over there. Best wishes to you.
