Hello Everyone, I had a horrendous first pregnancy at 36 years old and almost died. I have been terrified to try again since. I am finally in a place where I feel ready and just wondering if any of you older members have advice/stories re: conceiving naturally in your 40s?

Good luck! So sorry to hear you had a rough time before.

I followed the advice in It Starts with the Egg, and ensured my thyroid (TSH) levels were until 2. My AMH & AFC were very low but after my TSH levels normalised I fell pregnant immediately. Now 8 weeks and all looks good! Am early 40s.

Me! I'm exactly the same age as you and would love a second child but despite trying for 2.5 years it's not looking likely now. I've had 2 losses and I'm slowly becoming more accepting that it's not going to happen. I'd just love a sibling for my DS so will keep trying for the rest of this year.

Typo in my post, it should read TSH under 2!
