    I turned 39 today and trying to get pregnant. I am very scared whether i will get pregnant or not. I will be starting IUI next month. I will appreciate any words of encouragement or advice? Have you got pregnant at 39 and later?

    I don't know about others but I got pregnant with my son at 41 and my friend was 40 and a half when she found out she was pregnant the first time and 44 and pregnant with number 2 and we both had uneventful pregnancies. Hope this helps. Good Luck

    Hi there - clearly much depends on the individual but I have several friends who are or have gotten pregnant in late 30s or early 40s (some assisted, some not). I am 41 and had my IUD taken out 5 weeks ago and just confirmed a positive stick test. I was VERY surprised, so fast. My two cents is to try to go about it as relaxed and optimistic as possible.
