45 YO and hoping

Just looking for a place to vent my worries. I am 45 and have a beautiful 22-y-o daughter, but I am now involved with a much younger man and hoping to conceive. I know a lot of women over 40 have given birth to healthy babies and I am hoping to be one of them soon. I know risks go up with age, but I am willing to face them and have a very positive attitude that things will be just fine. It would be wonderful to hear from other over 40 women with happy endings. I believe you can never have enough positive reinforcement.

Thanks for the words of encouragement! :-) My relationship status has officially changed to "Engaged" as of last week, so here's to hoping the "other" status follows suit quickly! I will be 46 when I deliver, and I am thinking positive! My 22yo daughter is over the top about being a "big" sister, so that REALLY keeps me pumped up about the whole process! Lol I just worry if I'm ovulating, however, I have a couple of appointments scheduled to make sure I'm running right, inside and out. Hopefully I can share some good news before too long. Please keep us posted on how you're doing!

awww, you're sweet, thank you!!

Yeah, you want a 'flooky story' on how I conceived my dd!! I was 31, just engaged to my ex....we decided to use IUD birth control, I was scheduled to have it implanted after my period, my fiance & I were 'intimate', during my period and didn't pull out (thinking nothing would happen), THEN after my period, had the IUD implanted!!!!
