We've been ttc for quite a while, now on 18th cycle. We are both 42. About 5 days or so after ovulation (well I presume I am ovulating as periods still regular) I start to have pregnancy symptoms.......nausea, fatigue, sore boobs, metallic taste etc. This has been going on for months and months. Several times dh and I have been convinced we are about to get a BFP but nothing doing. So now I'm wondering if this is something that happens when fertility is coming to an end? I know my mum was still having regular periods when she had a hysterectomy at 49 and I just really thought I would have conceived by now
I agree with ThatsNotMyBabyBelly, many of the pregnancy symptoms are the same as those normally seen in the week(s) before your period is due and of course when you're looking for them, they seem more pronounced.
FWIW I'm the same age as you (though not TTC) and all my normal monthly symptoms do appear to have become more severe in the last 1-2 years. My GP says this is normal at our age, but not a sign that menopause is imminent.
