Hi everyone! I've been browsing your boards for a while, and thought I'd introduce myself.
I am 40 (will actually be 41) in a few days, and my husband is 42. We've been married fourteen years, and for most of that time, we were not really sure if we felt ready to have a child or not. We knew that if we had kids, we just wanted to have one, so mentally I believe that we pushed it off, feeling like we had "all the time in the world." I would say that within the past year for me, and the past six months for my husband, we've really decided that we do want to have a baby together.
I now hope that it's not too late!
We are both very healthy overall, so we know we have that in our favor. I did have a uterine polyp removed about a month ago, but my doctor assures me that if anything, this should actually help with fertility. We tried this past month for the first time, but I think we missed ovulation by a couple of days. Sure enough, I took a pregnancy test this morning and it was negative. Now I'm just looking forward to my period starting so that we can try again this month!
I look forward to reading more of your stories, and hearing of your successes!
