New here!

Hello,
I found this board a few days ago and would love to join in. I'm 40 (DH is 35 with no children of his own)and I had a tubal reversal 6 months ago. I'm part of the TTC after TR/VR board but would love to join this one too to get the over 40 perspective. I have 3 DS ages 17,15 and 13. I have been remarried for almost 9 years.We had been considering this for quite some time but everything fell into place for us only recently to start trying. I know I'm pushing the envelope with having a TR and being over 40 but DH and I have decided that if it was meant to be it will and worst case scenario we will enjoy trying! I wish all of you the best of luck in this TTC journey.

Dawn

Dawn,

Welcome! It's so nice to see all the new members joining. I'm 45, so to me, 40 is a baby! You're a teenager! A lot of my friends had babies at 40-41 with no problems at all! A great friend delivered her baby when she was just shy of her 44th birthday. I think you'll find that we're a very supportive and fairly informative crowd!

Again, welcome! I look forward to hearing more about you!

Welcome Dawn:>)

Glad you found the board. It's a wonderful place for us over 40's with supportive and knowledgable women.

I'm 40, dh is 38 and we've been married 10 years with no children. Recently decided to TTC and will start next month I hope.

Best Luck, Julie

Hi and welcome!

I know what you mean...I also joined so I could share my hopes and fears with all of you and not drive my dh crazy!

I had my first ds at 38 and we have been trying to conceive for 2 years. I had 1 miscarriage since then. Now, I am 41 and still hoping we can conceive (everything seems to be working normally).

I don't think it is a worry about having enough energy or making changes for a new baby. It is such a wonderful journey and it is great to be motivated to live life fully. It is not the Fall of our lives. 40 is young and we have at least another 40 years to live!

It's funny though...the only thing I worry about is having my ds be a teenager and being teased or being embarrassed that his mom is older than the other moms (who conceived at 20). Oh well. Life is full of joy and not to let worries and fear guide my decisions!

Anyway welcome and good luck on this journey!

Welcome Dawn : )

I'm 41 DH is 46 we are one year post VR (second in fact, we have an almost 4 YO as a result of the first VR, and later had a second V...complications, followed by more complications...) My hormones are coming back post menopause levels, with CD 3 FSH at 38.4 abd E2 under 10. This cycle was assisted with Clomid, estrogen, and now (2 WW, maybe) progesterone.

Best wishes to you on your TTC journey.

Lee
