Over 40 and TTC


I thought I would introduce myself and hopefully meet some other women in my shoes. I remarried in February 2017 a very sweet man much younger than me. When I divorced my first husband, we had 6 children together. I honestly never thought I'd have any more children. I was blessed 6 times over.

My current husband and I had a surprise pregnancy shortly after we married in February. I was feeling off and realized my period had not come. I didn't really think at my age I'd have gotten pregnant. I did. I miscarried at 8 weeks. We both mourned the loss and decided that it was meant to be. We went about our daily lives. Recently the topic of TTC came up. He is a great stepdad to our children so while he would like a child, he's also really fine if it never/can't happen.

However I feel like at 27, he may wish that we at least tried when he gets older. We had the conversation about TTC and are going to start trying. I know the odds are not in my favor and I'm not sure we will pursue anything further than TTC on our own.

I've started a super foods health plan, added in kale, almonds, red bell peppers, oatmeal, lean meats (GH free), berries, etc. I'm also doing a full cleanse, meaning no more wine at all, no coffee and no sugar (other than from fruit). Also going to step up my game on the exercise side of things.

Any suggestions for other things I could be doing (besides lots of sex, got that covered with him being so young lol).

sorry not use to this site yet, I am sorry also for your loss. I lost mine about 8 weeks too. But , your more fertile now. And many women are waiting to conceive til later. So your not alone. Baby dust to you! I would also take CQ10, DHEA, and look into chinese herbs to help with uterine lining such as Dong Quai Root. Look into fertility massage too. And acupuncture for blood flow.

You might consider having acupuncture and practicing fertility yoga that surely help you improve your mind and body state

Good luck to you. I got pregnant naturally 2 months before turning 46, so it can happen. We weren't even trying so I was doing nothing special. Heck, the month I got pregnant we only dtd one time. I just feel so lucky and blessed. (She's my only child. I had several miscarriages when younger and then told I'd never have kids) Wishing you all the best and to all the ladies wanting a child.

I just tested and I believe I have my BFP...HERE IS WHAT i DID....
If this is my true BFP.. Here is what I did this cycle. I do have PCOS as well...

I took Soy Isoflavones CD (cycle day) 3-7

Then I started Geritol (tonic) everyday until my BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) (yesterday)

Prenatal vitamin daily (lunch time)

COQ10 daily (around 2-3pm)

Zinc, Magnesium, calcium combo in one vitamin- daily at dinner

Progesterone starting 5dpo

I ate pineapple core 1dpo-5dpo (even though I only ate it on 4dpo and 5dpo)

I ate Brazil nuts after ovulation (helps aid in implantation)

Drank Pom juice during Ovulation period up until BFP (big fat positive (pregnancy test)) (to thicken uterine lining)
