Do I dare to dream?

I'm new to the group and so happy to find so much love, support and great information here. I'm 43, was pregnant in my 20's and have just begun to try again now. My fertility test results are good with the only blip being my post-ovulation phase being 10 days instead of 14. I'm seeing an excellent Chinese acupuncturist and taking the raw herb teas. My docs are optimistic.
The thing is, I sometimes feel as if I'm just asking for too much to hope for a baby at this stage in my life. I've finally gotten my career where I want it, my life is relaxed and easy, but I find myself embarrassed that I dare to dream of being a mother too . . . which means more to me than anything my career could give me.
Has anyone else ever felt this way?
I am also worried about the shorter cycle, I was always 28 days until only a few months ago. Has anyone heard of successful pregnancy even with this issue?
