i am 33 and dh and i are ttc

just come on today and i am so sad

we have only been ttc 3 months (i KNOW its no time at all) but with dd it happened so quick. like, days after we decided to ditch the contraception. i was only 28 then though. and i got pg with DS (from prev relationship) when i was 25 by accident very quick too blush

and to top it off i have read a scaremongering article in the sun newspaper this morning about how womens fertility sharply drops after 32

we were TTC 2 years ago but stopped as it was not a good time financially, now i wish we had carried on trying as now it might be too late

please please share your positive stories sad sorry for being a drama queen. but it actually scares me how much i want dc3

I had dd1 at 31 and dd2 at 34, pretty unremarkable....

My great grandmother had 10 kids, my grandmother (her 3rd) was born when she was 33.... She therefore had at least 6 possibly 7 kids after the age of 35 shock. Only one set of twins.....

Fertility is personal some people are more fertile later, its all averages.

I had DD at 35. Took 9 months to conceive with no particular system. 37 now and hoping for DC2 soon!

Dc @ 27 30 31 33(just) 35 37 38 40 and almost 44

Plus 8 m/c (4 before 40 and 4 after 40)

So 7 live births after 30smile

I would say don't despair yet. Although at 28 after my first m/c and heading to 30 I despaired of having a second child. So I know it's hard but it's not long to have been trying, you were just quick with your other conceptionssmile. Good luck and hope it happens soon for you.

try for a year then ask for a day 21 progesterone test. you may just need a little clomid if you have problems.
