Trying to conceive at 34...

Hi all- I am 34 and my husband and I are about to start trying for #2. I was wondering how many of you are trying to conceive and you are 34+? I have a complex over having a baby at 34 and don't know if I am being irrational or if I should indeed be worried? Any advice would help!

Hello~ I am 32 & we are trying too. I too have felt like I'm getting older I already have 2 children & my husband does too. So we are trying for one of our own. At 1st I felt too old & my time for having babies were over, but my husband really wanted a child together. We've been trying for 3 months & nothing yet. I was on the pill for 7 yrs! So I can understand....I don't think you need to worry as long as your healthy, & don't have any medical issues that would interfer with having another baby. Let God work in his ways & you will be blessed when the time is right! Good luck & best wishes!

I am 34 and my doctor said to GO FOR IT! He gave a me a prenatal prescription and sent me on my way....
I feel the same as you though................scared/excited/anxios!

Don't worry! Enjoy every day, every ttc and your 4 year old and hubby.
I did get some advice from a friend yesterday, that her doctor gave, that our ovulation and bodies respond to stress and anxiety. So try to relax was the message. (i know it's easier said than done)

Hi! I'm a whopping 38 and my Hubby is 40! I have 2 beautiful kids- a girl 16 and a boy 6 yrs old. We haven't REALLY been ttc, but we do pray for God to bless us with a beautiful, healthy baby girl (he has 2 sons from a previous marriage)!
Since April it's been fingers crossed and baby dancing as often as we can, but this is the FIRST month that I've been able to do my ovulation chart and read EVERYTHING I can on doing the bd at the right time!!
I think we got it right-at least the timing was PERFECT. Now it's just the harrowing tww to test, but I just FEEL pregnant! The truth is, God knows best, but at my age, you get used to stressing, so it's hard not to!!
Baby dust to you all!!

I know what you mean. I'm 34 as well and wonder if my age will keep me from getting preggers sooner rather than later... I got pregnant with my son as soon as I got off the pill - I mean, right away. So I'm kind of freaked out that it won't happen as fast this time b/c of my age.

Oh my, you make me feel old. I'm 40 and trying to conceive. Neither I nor my husband have any other children. I agree with a couple of you who say God knows best and at my age I don't believe I will push the issue with intervention but if it happens it's meant to be.

Cardette - how long were you on the pill? I have been on the pill for 15 years and I am worried that might make it more difficult to become pregnant.

mamabuzz replied to maura1171's response:
We are on our 3rd cycle trying. I am now on cycle day 50 and no sign of starting, although preg tests are all negative. It is really crazy b/c I have been regular and now all of a sudden I am soooo late!

Hi I turned 34 this year and we recently decided to have a baby. I have a 10 year old daughter and for a while had no interest in having another baby. I had my IUD removed last week and still feeling a bit achey from the removal. I am trying to figure out when we should start trying to get pregnant since I have no idea when I am ovulating. Good luck to all
