Just wondered about this and wanted some experiences and views.

It'd be dc3 for me but had a mmc a year ago and haven't been able to go through it again until now...

Potentially thinking of ttc around September or October.

My other children are 1.5 and. 3 and were conceived easily but now I'm over 35 so appreciate it may not be so easy.

Thanks in advance

I had an early miscarriage about 6 years ago and swore I'd never get pregnant again.
New partner now, forgot to take the pill and was pregnant within days!
Baby number 3 is now 9 months old with a 15 and an 11 year old brother and sister. I was 37 when I last got pregnant.

Had first DS at 37 after TTC for 3 years. Got pregnant with number 2 as soon as we started trying again and gave birth at 39. Once my body had figured out what to do it wasn't hard.

Got pregnant with this one - DC3 - first time, age 37. Already have a 5 and a 2 year old. Was a bit of a shock!

It took us about 6 weeks at age 37, then once at 39. Good luck.

Conceived when 37, second month of trying. Hoping ttc their sibling will be as easy...

Baby at 34, got pg by mistake when on antibiotics. Baby at 38, planned and pg in month 2.

My first pregnancy ended as an mmc last year. DH and I decided to take a break from TTC for a little while.

Decided to try after Christmas and had a BFP by Feb - I've just turned 37.

First cycle ended in MC at 7 weeks. Pregnant again before period - now 27 weeks. I'm 38.

*11 weeks, not 7

I am one who has found it takes longer to get pg as I get longer in the tooth. I like a decent gap between my dc so dc1 31/32 2 months, dc2 34/35 6 months, just pg3 with dc3 started ttc at 37, now pg at nearly 39 14 months ttc shock

Got pregnant at 36 after one reckless 'throw the condom to the wind" evening with DP blush

First time around (when I was 32) was planned and took a couple of months.

Good luck smile

Conceived DC2 just before my 38th birthday on first month of trying. (DC1 conceived on 3rd cycle at 35).

Took us 13 months at 39 going by an ovulation app. No temping/checking for ewcm/peeing on ovulation sticks etc. Just shagging.

Desmondo2016 Sun 17-Jul-16 07:59:41

I got pregnant 2 months after coming off the pill, with a DH who's been told all his life (backed up by tests) that's he's infertile. A miracle happened for me! I'm 38 and he's 45.

Daytona79 Sun 17-Jul-16 08:13:14

I must just need to look into wind wrong way to get pregnant

First baby 34 years old, first time having sex after stopping contriception I fell pregnant

Currently 36 and due in 3 weeks and the same happened again

1st time having sex with no comdom and pregnant

We are very lucky

I'm pregnant with DC #1 at 38, got pregnant second month of trying.

Bluebird126 Sun 17-Jul-16 21:35:57

Got pregnant for the first time aged 44, after 2 years vaguely ttc - basically just came off the pill and pretty much put it out of our minds, no watching cycles etc. 25 weeks now and so excited!

I also just need to blink to get pregnant. First time both tries, first one I was 38 and second time at 40..I know I am very lucky.
