Newly married at 42!!

Hi Everyone,


I am getting married in March after being a widow for 14 years and raising two daughters on my own. My Husband-to-be and I are going to try for a child and I am looking for friends to take the journey with. We have been together for a few years and did not plan to have any children. Unfortunately, I fear we may have waited too long......I've been reading this board and trying to learn all the lingo, and get ideas for things I can try to improve our chances.

Welcome Danielle.


I also married late (although first marriage for me) and am getting ready to celebrate our 3rd anniversary next week. I just turned 44 and am also trying to learn as much as I can.

Hi Mattie, Yes I do want to get in to the Dr and hopefully get the ball rolling. I also know that I need to begin taking vitamins. Thanks for the welcome!

Hi Nikki, thanks for the welcome! I am glad to have found this board for support. I like the picture of you and your daughter, I am going to have to make my signature line more fancy, when I get time to figure it out.


Mattie it is exciting to get started I bet. What supplements do you take? Do you have any suggestions for an all purpose supplement? I know I need folic acid.

Oh my goodness Dani, are you sure you want to know ? HA HA!! I'm on so many things I have to put them on a giant lazy susan to be able to spin them around in the morning and get to them all.
