Welcome Veronica!

What an interesting story! I have a disabled older step-sibling who is in a nursing facility so I know how difficult that can be on a family. ((HUGS))

It sounds like you have a great outlook on TTC #5. How do your kids feel about a new brother/sister? :-)

I do take a multivitamin everyday (plus vit D, fish oil, and vit C.. think I should probably add a calcium supplement in there as well).

Hi Veronica, Yes, I got pg with my fourth child about a month after my 40th birthday, and it was an unplanned pregnancy. As a matter of fact it was right after what I THINK was a very early miscarriage, but I'll never know for sure. There might be something to that rumor floating around which holds that women can be very fertile right after miscarriages... but anyway I digress.... I am glad to hear you're in excellent health. I think that makes a big difference! Are you by any chance taking folic acid too or other multivitamins? They probably couldn't hurt!! Happy

Hi Veronica, nice to "meet" you! I sure hope that your WTTC journey is a happy and easy one. Don't get discouraged about TTC over forty... if you are in good health then there is every chance you'll be succesful! Good luck to you.
