TTC after 35

Hi and more

Hi! I've just turned 38 and we want to have another baby. I have it on my mind all the time bc I know my age is a factor and I'm over weight which is a factor. But how do you not think about conceiving ? I'm concerned that my thinking about it is stressing me out and the stress is keeping me from getting pregnant. I've been off birth control since November. We moved in November , then the holidays and we have a 10 month old so there's a lot going on. Just looking for some thoughts.
I'm 38, happily married , and I'm a SAHM. Live in New Orleans. Hope that everyone is doing well. Let me know what I can do for y'all
