I'm 43 and have been trying to conceive for a year and half. Fortunately I'm regular as clockwork with a 28 day cycle unfortunately I still haven't conceived. I have had tests and things are working as they should. I feel like my time is quickly running out and it's making my depression worse. I don't want to become bitter but I'm so hurt that others have children and I don't. I feel like my dream of being a mother has been ripped away and the future is black.. I wanted a child when I was younger but the guy I was with didn't think I could cope because of my bipolar so ruined my confidence. I'm now with someone who believes in me but fear I've left it too late.

Keep positive Juhannus. If you know that things are in working order, you've just got to facilitate the time and place and hopefully nature will take care of the rest. If you have the personality that can handle being ultra prepared, I found the book "Taking charge of your fertility" to be a real eye opener.

Hello everyone it's been a while but I'm back here with some quesitons.

Is is possible to get pregnancy symptoms 5 days before you're due?

I'm sick and nauseous constantly?

I'm crying because of it?

I get a bit spaced out?

I keep thinking milk is off?

I get very tired and have to walk very slowly?

My balance isn't great I appear drunk sometime?

I'm constantly starving and eat real quick like I have'nt eaten when I eat regularly?

THE troubling complication for me is I'm Bipolar and have just started a new med so all this could be that :'(
