Welcome to the world of TTC after 40!
I am Laura currently thinking about #2 I am 43 DH is 48. We conceived #1 via IVF first try and if we do it again it will be July or early August. Going for our consult with our RE on Tuesday.
I did not know their was a age limit for IVF I wonder if it is just the practice?!
I will be 44 when I deliver if I get pregnant. I am extremely worried about my ability to handle a infant and a toddler! UGH and DH is worried about the whole age thing altho he has given me a green light to go with this it is me that can not decide or make up my mind for longer than a few days!
I will check this board more often now, when I first stopped by it was slow!
How could I have missed this thread? Rats!
Hi, I'm Apple & just turned 40.
I'm Cindy and ttc for # 2 for 1 long year! Our daughter is 8.
I will be 40 in September, dh is 40.
Even though I am no longer ttc, I enjoy coming here and lending some support. So...here's my story.....I was married in 1986 when I was 25 1/2 and had my ds when I was 27(he'll be 18 in Sept). I conceived him in one month! I got divorced in 1991. In 1998 I got married to someone I have known for 30 years this summer. Our families used to spend the summers together in upstate NY. He was a guest at my 1st wedding! Anyway....I got pg at the end of 1998 and m/c at 14 weeks. I kept ttc naturally(I get pg VERY easily). Due to incredible stress and increasing age, it took 11 mos to conceive again and I m/c at 8 weeks(blighted ovum. I conceived my almost 5 yr old dd 6 weeks after that d&c!!!! I delivered her when I was 40 1/2 yrs old. I went on to have another m/c at 9 weeks in 2001(when dd was only 8 mos old) and conceived my now 2 1/2 yr old in Feb. 2003....the very cycle they told me to hang it up as my fsh was 16!! I was 2 weeks shy of my 43rd b-day when I had her. I actually conceived one more time after that (not ttc...I told you I conceive easily!) but m/c at about 6 weeks. WE are much more careful now as I really don't want another unexpected surprise. I know you are all ttc, but we have enough children. I am now 45 1/2 and dh is 49. I am old and tired and can't run after anymore.....LOL!!!!
Hope you were able to follow my saga. GL to all of you!
