Hello to all of you--this is my first posting to this board, though I have been in some other ones.
I wanted to throw in my "2 cents" worth of encouragement for all of you TTCrs and/or those dealing with secondary infertility.
I am 44 years old and blissfully pregnant (13+ weeks) with my second child. I have had many miscarriages, the last 2 in 2001 and Jan. 2003. I just wanted to let all of you "Advanced Maternal Age" moms (don't you love that term?!) know that it is possible to get pregnant, even when one is older!! Most of the things you read out there are SO discouraging and dismal, but I never stopped believing that I could get pregnant again. Most people are shocked when they find out that this baby was conceived naturally. I did go on Progesterone early in the pregnancy because with my last miscarriage they discovered that my levels were low. I have felt all the pregnancy symptoms that I did not feel with my last 2 pregnancies, so I happily endured the morning sickness and fatigue that has been going on.
Please do not give up on your quests to conceive! Good luck to all of you!
Robin THANK YOU!! I am 38 and TTC #1 after 4 m/c and I really needed to hear your story!! Thank you for sharing with us and stop by anytime!!!
You got that right T, that is so encouraging.
Thanks, would you think of coming to our board and rooting us on Robin. We need more 35+ mom's to be to keep us looking to the future!!!
Hi, My name is Alison and I'm from Melbourne, Australia, and I'd like to join you guys if that's ok? I'm 41 years old and for some strange reason I'm TTC for the 2nd time. I'm hoping that things will go as quickly and easily for me 2nd time around. My first (and only pregnancy so far), went against all the statistics. I stopped taking the pill in January of 2001 but didn't seriously start to ttc until September. One month later my DS was conceived. Completely naturally. It was my 39th Birthday Boink!! All I did to help things along was to not rush into the bathroom straight after (if you kwim :)), and made a little bit of an effort to lie with my backside lifted up to help gravity push the little swimmers in the right direction!
I know this was perhaps a lucky chance, but I'm hoping that nature is on my side and my eggs are still ok and we conceive as quickly and easily as last time. It will be nice to share my journey with you all, if that's ok.
Hi Alison!! We'd love to have you join our little family!! Welcome :) I hope luck is on your side once again.....Matthew is a dollbaby!!
It's Robin again, the oldest mom on the block! A quick update--I am now in my 20th week and we just found out that we are having another boy! My 10 year old son is happy!! I think of all of you all the time and send good thoughts your way :D
