Your age: 35

DH's name and age: Kevin and 43 as of today!

TTC #: 3

TTC start date: January 2008

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: We had a "plan" when we were pregnant with Ethan . . . 4 kids 18 months apart . . . and all 4 pregnancies would be done by the time I was 35. Well, the plan didn't work out, and I only have 2 kids and turned 35 last year. I worry that we won't have "time" to have the 4 kids we want, or the pregnancies (already difficult) will be VERY hard after 35 (which I have been told by family that their pregnancies over 35 were SOOO much harder than the others).

Advice to other over 30 TTCers: Keep your chin up. Ask for help and/or advice when needed. Don't be afraid to talk to your doctor and/or get referrals to specialists.

Any history, diagnosis, or information about TTCing you would like to share: I was 29 when I had Ethan, and we got pregnant the first month. With Emily, it took almost 2 years (plus a 1 year break due to DH deploying). I was diagnosed with unexplained secondary infertility and took 2 rounds of Clomid. The 3rd month, I didn't take Clomid, and that is the month I got pregnant.

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: So far I'm not really worried. . .I know it will happen when it is supposed to (please God).

Advice to other over 30 TTCers: Don't give up and have faith. Also when you feel down about it talk to your DH, chances are he is feeling the same way and just hasn't said anything. Also TMP is a great place to make you feel better.

Any history, diagnosis, or information about TTCing you would like to share: Nope nothing that I know of.

Biggest "worry" about being over 30 and TTCing: That it will take a lot longer to conceive


Any history, diagnosis, or information about TTCing you would like to share: Just started TTCing a couple of months ago. I've had one complete cycle since & I'm coming to the end of the second. The doc says if we aren't pregnant after 6 months to call him because in his own words "at my age..." I should be checked out a bit sooner to be sure things are good. . Anyway no reason to think I'm unhealthy. I did have a fibroid removed hystrscopically about 4 years ago, but the doc assured me that shouldn't create any issues.
