Period came again!!


I am 38 next month and trying to get pregnant .
I already have 2 children who are 8 and 4.

With my first 2, I got pregnant after 2/3 months of trying. I know I am older now so it will take longer but I am already feeling down after trying for 3 months without a result now.

I am doing all the right things; taking folic acid, reduced caffeine and use Opk sticks to predict ovulation so intercourse is timed well.
I have also noticed that mt period cramps & back ache has been worse since Ttc!!

Is there anything else I can do to increase chances of getting pregnant?
Should I be seeing my GP just yet?

My husband said we are too old now & it just may not happen ☹️

Hi Angelica ,
I turn 38 in a few months and have 2 children age 9 & 4. Ive had a mc at 7 weeks 3 yrs ago .We're ttc #3 , it's our 2nd month trying .This month we used preseed,but no luck. Both my children were conceived with Clomid so I know we're gona struggle without it again. As we get older it does get harder ,but please don't be disheartened,it's early days yet.You could try your GP but I know when I saw mine when I was ttc#2 She said I'd have to try IVF & kept saying it may just happen naturally -but it didn't in the end .So this time I'm not even gona try my GP. Next month I think I'm gona try Soya Isoflavones, But that's because I know I have a problem ovulating - I do ovulate but it's just not strong enough to get pregnant. Keep trying hopefully we'll get that Bfp soon !! xx

Since you are over 35 I think they do suggest contacting your doctor sooner than if you were younger. Something like after 6 months of well-timed sex and no BFP, I think. Call your doc and get their input on when they'd want to see you. Can't hurt, right?

With that said, you were still a little better than average getting your other two within a couple months of trying. So even with hitting three months, you're not "having issues" yet. Your next cycle might be it!

i get it. my first two pregnancies were conceived on the VERY first try, though i did miscarry the first one. this time i'm on cycle two and pretty sure im out.. i feel terrible complaining because i know so many other people who have struggled for SO LONG with this.. but i cant help that sinking feeling that something is wrong this time... with me.. with him (neither of my babies were conceived with him, so we just dont know)

im really feeling discouraged and i wish i wasnt this way so early on... because it feels so petty.

I'm 39 hence my name😉
I have 2 children 19 and 15 from previous relationship. I'm with my soul mate now he has no children and is coming up 35. I had a miscarriage in march 🙁 but we trying again. It took us 2yrs but.. I was on the depo injection which I would never recommend to anyone. Yes it's harder but achievable!
I'm waiting now had spotting now nothing so hoping implanting bleed.
Good luck x
