ok. i am 42. haven't posted in a while, but wondering if it is just me or is this normal? i have three children (13, 8 and 3) and really had no problem conceiving the first two. i actually conceived on the first try. took a couple of months with the third and i thought i was done. for the past year, i have been "thinking about another" and over the last 4 months have really wanted to start trying before it is too late. we haven't been using protection, but haven't actually been trying to exactly time things perfectly either. then again, we did this with the first three and didn't take long to get pregnant.
this past month, we were pretty active during the week of ovulation and today i got my period. so it doesn't seem like things are going to be as easy this time. my question . . . can you be pretty fertile before 40 and then have your fertility decline and it be normal? anyone else more fertile when they were younger?
hope to hear back from someone so i can rest assured that this is pretty natural in your 40s and that i should just keep trying.
hugs and baby dust to all of you :)
