Hi Melanie and I don't think you're crazy...if you are ...I'm right behind you at age 47 ( 48 this summer)! My dh and I don't tell anyone that we are still trying for a baby either's just easier than listening to all the guff. I got enough of that after my TR 10 years ago at age 37 so you could imagine what the comments would be now! DH and I just figure we'll deal with it if and when we ever get a sticky BFP! Good Luck!

Welcome, Melanie. Old? what is old anyway? You are not crazy or selfish for wanting another child. But I can certainly understand why you wantt to keep it private --

Hi Melanie,

My friend's twin sister got triplets at age 47 (with some type of medical help, not sure what type). She is now 61 with 14 year old triplets. Also, there is someone on this board, not sure who, that recently had a baby at 46. Maybe that person will chime in but I believe she said she conceived naturally.


Me, Lisa, 41 1/2, DH, Howard, 51

TTC #1 (for me, DH has 2 DD) since 8/8/08 (wedding day)

Pg (Confirmed by Dr. on 3/11/2009), first day of last period was 2/4/2009

U/S approx 3/12/2009, shows small black mass in uterus w/yolk, tech said there were 2 eggs but just one fertilized (guess DH

Me, Lisa (42); DH, Howard (52); DSD, Laura (13); DSD, Juliana (7); DS, Alexander (6 months) Enjoying my #1 (born 11-2-2009 when I was 42) BFP #2 4-15-10 MC 4-21-10

Welcome Menanie, Here is some positive thinking for you......There is a woman in our church that believed babies are gifts from God and NEVER used birth control well she had her last 3 babies at home with a midwife at 45,46 and48yrs of age!! She has 9 children in total!
