Older husbands

Anyone here have husbands that are a lot older? My husband is eh hem....20 + years older than me. We have been married for 19 years and have 4 beautiful children. He doesn't look or act his age, but it is definitely a deciding factor.
I kept thinking we had time for one more and here we are at a crossroads. Where did the time go? My baby is now 12! We were just going to wait 2-3 years to have another.

Hi There,

Not sure how old your husband is...but I just gave birth on Nov 2 to a baby boy...my husband is almost 52 (I am 42) and we conceived more or less naturally with OPK, and a supplement for just a month that I don't know if it helped or not..so maybe it was just completely natural...Good luck to you!

Google all the famous men that have babies at a super old age (there are articles on it), it will make you feel better...Nick Nolte, Tony Randall, maybe Hugh Heffner...lots of others...


Me, Lisa, 42, DH, Howard, 51

TTC #1 (for me, also have 2 DSD, ages 7 and 12) since 8/8/08 (wedding day)

Sorry, I don't have any experience with that, I am quite close in age to my DH, but I don't know that it should be too much of an issue when it comes to TTC. There may be issues, but I think they are usually more easily fixable than the issues that come with female age. Hope it all works for you. :-)
