Over 30 and ttc #2 ~ Anyone else?

Hi :\),

I'm 36 and in my sixth month of ttc #2. We were lucky with DS who was conceived in the second month of trying but its a bit harder going this time around. DH and I are both so tired working and running after a toddler so I am using the CB fertility monitor to eliminate the guesswork [my cycle has been anywhere from 28 - 39 days in the past]. Even though I am over 35 which is always quoted as the time when fertility takes a dive, I lead a healthy lifestyle and thought it would be just as easy second time around [stupid me :cry:].

I've only just joined BE so haven't been able to read a lot of the threads to find out about all you ladies but are there any other 30 somethings like me struggling?

  • Hi
    replied to your post in the older mums forum, but this is a much busier board.
  • Hi and welcome!
    I'm also 32 (soon to the 33 eek!) and trying for number one. Only on month two, so not sure if its much of an issue yet. Hope not!
    Good luck! xx
  • i'm 36 and have a 2 yo dd. We have been trying since September and earlier this month I had a m/c. The bright side of the m/c is that I know that I can still get pregnant, the issue is staying pregnant.

  • Hi, I'm 32 and ttc #2, this is our 3rd month of trying, I actually fell pregnant with our lo when I was on the pill so thought I'd get caught straight away once I stopped taking, not always as you plan but not worrying yet.
  • Hi, im soon to be 31 and will now be officially ttc #2. Took my last pill on Monday.
    I fell on month 2 with my lo, I had been on the pill for 12yrs solid so thought it would take longer.
