Isnt it all such a drag this ttc lark when you are older???? Looking at the forums its difficult ttc at any age. Seems to me, i think the ttc part wont be my issue. I think it sticking will be I am now on CD11, pretty sure im going to ovulate soonish if not already. Its early but not unusual for me and after my m/c i dont know how crazy my cycles will be. Trying to take the relaxed approach. Just dtd and absolutely no ov stick, temping[not that i ever did] or anything else..so just waiting to see how it goes.
I will be absolutely terrified if i get my bfp this month....that i have it..and then it goes!
good luck to everyone xxx

Good news about the possibility of testing your egg reserve to see if you get NHS IVF - bad news for me is they won't make a decision until 2012, by which time I will be 45!

Can I join....I'm married to a Scot, and we live in Wales, so it's still all very celtic!

I'm Lyndsay, 41 next month with a 3 yr old daughter, been TTC number 2 for about 2.5 years now, with 2 mc's (investigated nothing major - couple of borderline clotting results - so now on aspirin, and FSH shows my eggs are, well 40 yrs old!), 5 rounds of Clomid and a 3 month tango with vulval cancer, including 2 major ops that put TTC on a back burner for a wee while. Phew.....it's been a busy couple of years!

So, very pleased to see a forum dedicated to us olders ladies. We are currently teetering between TTC and NTNP.....the heart lying in TTC and the head knowing that I really should give it a bit longer for me to recover from my last op, but time is ticking fast!

I'd originally planned to have my family complete by the time I was 40......hmmm, the best laid plans of mice and men, huh?

Course you can join Lyndsay!!!...It sounds like you have had a hard time of it. 2 m/c and cancer and ops... I have to hand it too you - you totally deserve your bfp!!!!!. x
As for me, CD13 and counting. Definetly ovulating ..pinching cramping heavy dragging feeling in womb, and ewcm. Strange too as i ovulated at cd16 last time. Maybe my cycle is a bit messed this time round after my m/c..who knows!! I just hope that AF is not late and gives me some kind of false hope!
How is everyone else doing? Anyone about to test???????

Hi all
Hope you dont mind me sharing this with you.
I am 41 and have last week suffered my 3rd miscarriage in last 3 years. I do not have any children and feel as if I have left things too late...we were due to start ivf treatment when found out I was pregnant..they were scanning me regularly due to last mmc and had put me on progesterone pessaries to see if these would help. Although they have done lots of blood tests already everything normal...they are testing me and OH tom for chromosones and awaiting results from tissues sent to lab from D&C. They say uterus etc looks normal so seem to think it is an issue with baby. Can't bear the thought of going through this again but I know I can't give up on my dream. ....last year was really bad...had sleep problems and hair loss and was finally in a better place from Feb/march this year...... I am wondering if ivf will make any difference to the outcome?...feel so alone as none of my family and friends seem to understand what I am going through...I know I have to be strong and carry on to achieve my dream but I am hoping it is not just false hope....
