Hi there! At 40 I was pregnant with #5 and newly remarried. Lost baby at 17w5d with cord x4 around his neck. I delivered and have his ashes.
At 41 I became pregnant with #6 naturally and had a textbook pregnancy, giving birth via c section at 42. Now I'm 44 and thinking this might be my month for my last baby but we'll see. I'm 6 days post ovulation so too early.
Btw my older kids are 20 through 15, then 2 :-) still breastfeeding!

Conceived (first cycle) at 41, miscarried at 8 weeks then fell pregnant again just two weeks after that. Delivered a perfect boy at the age of 42. Had my two girls in my twenties (first cycle each time) Trying for one more but in to my third cycle.... I'll be 43 in April. Staying positive, it can be done :-)

Three times! Gave birth at 40.5, just over 43, and 44.75. Had a chemical this past August so I guess 4 times, really. All naturally conceived.

Hi all, I'm new to this but here goes...
I got pregnant at the age of 40 in 2015 and on the day of week 36 in 2016 i felt something was wrong and went to see my midwife she told me to make my way to the hospital and she would follow me and it was confirmed that my beautiful little boy had passed away.. After 72 hours of labour i had to come home empty handed, my whole world had been thorn from me..The people i thought actually cared and said they would be there for me when i needed them but they totally avoided me and did nothing but talk about me and tell others that they wouldn't come round to see me until i got rid of my little boys ashes from my home.. Six months later i almost passed away myself due to a burst abscess on my appendix and the surgeon who drained my body of infection asked me if anyone had told me about my fibroid's obviously i said no because i didn't know what they were but i did ask if they would stop me from ttc and he told me he couldn't say...Needless to say we tried ttc anyway but to no avail.. so i went to see my GP and he took a blood test for progesterone and i got a result of 4.0 so he made an appointment for me to see a gynaecologist who told me that because i am now 43 the only thing he would do is give me six months supply of Metformin and six months supply of Clomid but told me i would have to come back and have a HSG and a re test of progesterone and AMH and they told me i would have results in two weeks...That was three months ago and i have phoned the hospital and my GP every second day and even took a visit to the hospital to see if anyone could help me..The only reply i get from them is i'm sure your gynaecologist will be in touch ...My heart is broken with it all..I don't know what to do next but i don't want to give up trying unless i'm told i have other issues..

I wish anyone who is trying to conceive nothing but the very best and may all your dreams come true.. <3

I got married at 35, had my first baby at 36. Had one at 37 and 39, and then 3 miscarriages and then one more at 43!!! I had a midwife tell me after my last miscarriage at 41 that I just wasn't going to have any more babies, and I told her that everything was possible with God (through tears and feeling lame, but still believing that). And it was so fun to go back and tell her I was pregnant again and gave birth to a healthy baby girl! Now I just turned 50 and have had no periods for 2 years - thought I was done but just had a full on period with tons of hormonal symptoms so I'm again so hoping I could have one more baby... (which I know, most people would think I'm crazy but I'm still hoping!) Blessings to you all TTC in your 40's!
