I've been reading this board -- the good, bad and neutral about TTC at 40+. I'll be 43 in a few weeks, am re-married (for 12 years now) and have decided to try for a baby before it's too late. Or is it too late? Reading some of your posts scares me.
I had an unexpected pregnancy at age 27, married and got divorced 18 months later. He's 15 1/2 now. I've always had regular periods and had no problems with my first pregnancy. I'm hoping that is the case with conceiving this time around (15 years later). It's so foreign to be planning it -- looking at CDs, reading about EWCM, O days, BDing, etc. LOL!
I've never had to try and am a little worried now that we've made the decision. Still, this is my first AF since we decided to go for it (doc ok'd it, too). I'm on CD 1 as of today. I have thyroid disease but keep it regulated pretty tightly with Synthroid and Cytomel.
I think the general words of wisdom are just relax and let nature take its course. I will not go the fertility treatment route if we're unsuccessful at conceiving a child together, so I hope I'm not setting myself up for heartbreak. I am really grateful to have carried a child but hope to have one more healthy baby before menopause kicks in.
Would appreciate intros and words of wisdom.
