TTC after 35

39 and trying...

Just wanted to introduce myself.  My husband and I are trying for our first child.  I am 39 and will be 40 in May.  We have been married for 1 1/2 yrs.  We have been trying for about 10 months now.  We went through a bunch of tests last month just to start checking since I am older.  Everything was fine, hubby was checked too and all is good there.

So....we are just trying to relax and not think about it.  See how that goes.

  • Hello and welcome!

    You'll love it here, with all the great support. Even so, I hope your stay is a short one.

    I'm 39 - 40 in November. DH is 40. We've been married 2.5 years, and this is our 4th cycle TTC. 

  • Hi!  This is a great, supportive board.
  • I'm 37 and H is 38.    We have been TTC #1 since Sept 2007... I have been pregnant 3 times but I don't stay pregnant.

    I swear by my ClearBlue Easy Fertility monitor if you decide you want to try something.  I bought it after trying for about 5 months.  Thanks to its high and then peak readings, we end up with very well timed sex that leads to positive pregnancy tests.     My problem is that I don't stay pregnant...


  • Boy, I hope it isn't the name!  I'm Laura too!


    I'm 40 (41 in 19 days) and DH is 43, married since October, trying since October, but AF didn't show up till this month after going off BCP...

    Good luck, this is a good support network!
