Trying to Conceive

Fertility at Forty

Dear Midwife,
I am 40. I have a 20 yr old and I 5 year old. Before the 5 yr old was conceived I was told I could not have anymore children. After I had the 5yr old. I got the IUD. on 2-11-09 I had it removed.

What are my chances in getting pregnant again? I wouldn't mind it. I am already a week late and happy.

hi there all, im new to this so apologise if this question has already been addressed. i recently miscarried at 11 weeks. we have started trying again and im not sure if i waited long enough, doc said wait a cycle and then try which we have but i usually due for period on the 19th of every month but have started spotting a week early is this because my body isnt back to normal yet or did we not conceive? i read a couple of blogs that it might be implantation? (i think that the word) if anyone can shed some light on this it would be very helpful. thank you

Well, I went to my OB for post-op recheck from my D & C yesterday. My doctor said everything looked good and my exam was within normal limits. He is still optimistic for me in getting pregnant again and having it be a successful pregnancy. His enthuziasum for me is contagious. I told him that DH and I had planned on trying again right away. My doc was very excited for me. I should be ovulating again in about a month. I hope what I've heard about fertility is true - that once you've been pregnant, it's not hard to get pregnant again. I would love to be pregnant again by the summer.
