Hi ladies.
I just found I am pregnant at 42. We had been trying for over a year snd had an mc. I have one son already who is 7 years old.
I feel so happy yet sooooooo tired lol...
We only found out 4 days ago. I'm 5 weeks 4 days
The funny thing is, we decided we weren't going to try anymore and then 3 weeks later bfp!! xxxx

Thank you so very much for your comments. I know it helped me when I was trying to see how many others concieved at 40 plus.. I didn't do anything in particular but two things really: regular sex and I used zita West vitamins and that was it! I had caffeine, I even had a glass of wine now and then. I honestly believe it happened when I stopped trying.
I don't know if this helps also but it is worth having your amh levels checked.
@courtrai have you had your amh levels checked hunny?

Whoop, whoop, amazing news! I am so happy for you! That's made my evening x

Ttc2020no2 · 03/03/2021 19:53

@Kitekat81 thank you hunny. I've had 4 myself since 39 years old. It's been a hard long road but 39 is still enough time. Have you had a child before? Have you had your amh levels checked? Xx

On and off for over a year now. Am 45 so am sure it won't happen... but I just love reading these great stories of people being successful. It would be our #2, so I can't complain at all. It would be nice to have another but unlikely!
Am so excited for you - being pregnant can be such a great experience (once you get through the morning sickness...!). Sending you lots of love and positive thoughts xxx

@Ttc2020no2 I just got my AMH result today - 2.2 πŸ˜” What was yours?x

CrispyMonster · 03/03/2021 20:01

Sorry, just reread your OP - you've already got a 7 y/o! Durrrr..., silly me, must be the wine I'm drinking 🍷πŸ₯΄

Hey hun mine was 8.49...I'm 42...so yes it is quite high for my age. I have heard you can still concieve at 2 hun but it may take longer. When it reaches 1 then its much harder. How old are you hun? Have you considered ivf? I was going to start this year xx

The other issue is that most eggs are damaged now but it only takes one good one!! I saw a lady post and her amh was similar and got pregnant but she was younger. I honestly think it is just about catching that tight egg hun xxx

Prague is alot cheaper than the UK and they do package deals too for example 3 x attempts for the price you'd pay once in the UK xx
