& I saw a lot of new 40-something gals on here....so wanted to say "hi" & send my prayers out to everyone for a happy & healthy 9 months!!

I just got married & we started trying last month (unsuccessfully), but we also had a wedding going on, so a bit of stress there, too!

It's true..a woman is more fertile after being pregnant. They say it's because of the increased progesterone lvls that are still in your body. It's not long though...4 to 6 weeks, possibly 8 weeks. Once you start having your reg cycles again your body is back to normal. It's within the month after that you are most fertile.

thanks Brie....we'll see!!

It's kinda' scary to try again, after just losing our July 2012 angel.....I prayed if I can't bring a baby to full term, than better, for us, to just not get pg. again.

You gals give me hope to be pg. & actually go full term!!

Lol I totally understand. My sil and I were TTC for a while and the joke between my brother and dh was that they had to put on their hard hats and clock in when it was "time"

I agree about the forced sex feeling. I know how tough it can be. Definitely consider the clomid. It can increase ovulation and increase the chances of the spermies finding an egg to play with :). We didnt use it with my previous, but I figured im over 40, I only have a specific number of eggs..so go for it. Have you ever tried it before? Check it out..ask your ob what they think. I did a low dose.
