    I am 42 years old. I had my first child naturally at 40 and am currently trying to conceive naturally. I look forward to hearing more about others in the same situation and sharing information.

  2. Georgia says:

    What a great idea. After a decade of infertility, I conceived through IVF and had my first child at 51. Our lives are busy, crazy and joyful now, but I remember the pain and know how much a group like this would have helped. It seemed there were few places to connect when I was trying to start a family. I hope this is helpful to other women and I look forward to joining!

    i’m going to squeeze in here with the ‘parenting after 40’ category. i had my son just before i turned 38y and find myself knee deep in the yummy mummy 30’s crowd which is not where i fit in. it will be nice to have a community of midlife mothers of kindergarten kids to chat with.
    all success with the new community 🙂

    Hi all, I am an older mom who forgot when I was doing 5 iVF’s at 39 and having a natural child at 41 that my darling children will in fact grow up to become teenagers…mine are also ADHD… i survive with humor from the escapades of a house of constant noise, mess and barking dogs….oh and a barking husband too!

    For those in the kid-business…..or thinking about it…

    Hi I am 42 and 4 months pregnant I have two children 24,20 and thought my baby days were long gone. I met my spouse in 2007 and was pregnant and miscarried both in 2008. Thinking it was not going to happen was astounded to find out that God had other ideas and we are going to have a baby in November! good luck to you all looking forward to having a place to talk and vent and share..

    • Belinda says:

      Hi Jari
      I’m 42 and 4 months pregnant , also thought my baby days were over. My two girls are 12 and 14. Glad to make contact, feeling do isolated. I can’t bear how I’m always considered high risk for this , that and the next. Every time we relax they throw up something else to worry about. My latest is echogenic bowel. Really??

  8. Angela says:

    I am a mother of ‘advanced maternal age’. I say this in quotes because that was my grim diagnosis at 40. Of course I dove head first into IVF’s an ended up conceiving naturally in between cycles. I am now a 48 year old mother to a 4 year old. With school around the corner I am ready to have more. So a note to the medical community, please don’t try to dissuade me. I know I will be ” x years old when my child is x years old”. I can do the math. After years as a busy television producer…the gorgeous child I gave birth to at 44 is my greatest and most rewarding production to date. Looking forward to more wonderful ‘productions’.

    • Ana says:

      Good for you! I too had a baby at 42 naturally after having had a consult with an infertility doc…wierd.I’ve done the math myself often but I would love to have another one. It is a blessing that many disreguard sadly. Stick to your guns . I took ASA and DHEA from the start of my period up to ovulation then stopped.My next period never came and my baby was born later that year. Research these meds first and ask your infertility doc what he thinks. Good luck and keep GOD first in your life.Through him all things are possible.

    • Name says:

      Hello there,

      WOW!! love your post. I just turned 41 and I have a 12 year old boy, a 10 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. I am trying to convince my husband to have a 4th. He is 45. He thinks he is too old and is worried about what can go wrong with the pregnancy/baby/me. I am really trying to talk him into it, however, I sure wish he was just on board with this.

      Any advice?

    • Suz says:

      Well said! Gives me hope and affirmation that is it okay to want a child at 44.

  9. Lara says:

    I really enjoy reading this new book, and i think it would be very usefull for some of you.
    It is called Right Time Baby: The Complete Guide to Later Motherhood.
    I think that really it is a big support for later moms. The author Claudia Spahr looks at midlife parenting and later pregnancy and has too many experts in the field of pregnancy and health. She shows that conceptions for older women is not harder and maintains that later life pregnancy has huge advantages for both baby and mother.

  19. cristina says:

    Hi. I’m 44 and married a year ago. I have 5 children with my first husband- ages 19, 17, 11, and 10 yr old twins. I desperately want to have another child with my husband. I feel as though my whole family thinks I am crazy. I had a miscarriage a year ago, which saddened me deeply. It would be nice to hear from people that conceived naturally because my husband is against doing fertility treatments:( I am turning 45 in November and thought I’d give up on this dream/hope by then, but I can’t let it go….

  20. Andrea says:

    I am 43 and six weeks pregnant with my second child, conceived naturally. My first was born just a few weeks shy of my 41st birthday. I have my first ultrasound coming up soon and am trying to keep the anxiety level down. I had conceived last fall and had a blighted ovum, revealed on the first ultrasound… So it is really hard to keep my spirits up right now. Any suggestions?

  21. Robin says:

    I have conceived and given birth twice in my 40’s, naturally. My 6 year old was born when I was 41 and my precious baby girl is 2, born when I was 45. I have 2 older children 23 and 17. Keep positive and believe!


    • Lyn says:

      Thank you for your comment, I will try to keep positive and believe. I am trying to conceive and I am 42.

    • Connie says:

      Hi Robin, Thanks for you encouraging words. I am 44 years old about to turn 45 in Sept. My husband and I have tried for 2 years to have a baby . I have had 4 miscarriages. I am about to throw in the towel, forget about checking when I ovulate every month….. having sex on demand, walking on egg shells every time I get pregnant, and in general, just feeling anxious and down all the time. Did you have any history of miscarriage? Did you do anything special? Supplements , acupuncture?

  22. amanda says:

    I am a 40 year old mother of a 4 month old little boy. My first grandson is 4 weeks younger than he is! : ). When I remarried a year and a half ago, my husband and I had no intention of having more children (we already had 5 between us) but when I went to kiss him goodbye for my IUD insertion appointment something didn’t feel right for both of us. So…two months later Eli was conceived naturally. I convinced myself I would not be able to easily conceive, but it happens.

  23. Sally says:

    Hi! Looks like a great site. I am 44 and had my precious twins at 42. It has been an amazing experience, and my husband and I count every day as a blessing. We are still in disbelief that we have this wonderful little family. Although I know I shouldn’t worry about my age, I think about it way too often. I could use some encouragement from others who had children later in life, and perhaps I can offer some support as well! I tried to register, but no luck when I clicked on the link. 🙁

  24. nikki says:

    Hi everyone. I just turned 40 in October, and thought I was done having children. We have 2 beautiful, healthy children – a 4 yr old girl, and a 6 yr old boy. I didn’t want to “push my luck” and we decided we were done having children. Then, last year I had a miscarriage, and just cannot get over the feeling that “there are supposed to be 3”. So my husband and I decided to try (well…. to stop NOT trying). I had my IUD removed 2 months ago, and although we’ve been having sex when i ovulate, no luck yet.
    Reading all of the statistics online are very discouraging now that we’ve made up our minds. From what i read, I only have a 5% chance of conceiving each month, even if we have sex when I’m ovulating. And of course, higher chances of miscarriage if conception actually happens. I’m scared and excited at the same time. I am blessed with 2 healthy children, and still have the feeling I’m “pushing my luck” – but would love to have one more before it’s too late.
    good luck to all of you!

    • Elisa says:

      Hi Nikki,

      I am a 45 year old mom of 4 beautiful boys. I had the last one when I was 39. Last July 15th, 2011 I had a miscarriage. Since then my husband and I want to have another baby. It has been difficult, because I sort of feel the same way you do. Maybe I was meant to have another, yet I am afraid of the outcome. I never went to my obgyn, since they are 50 miles away and I felt more comfortable going to my family doc. He new What i had been through with this last pregnancy and very supportive of it. The only thing is, a couple of weeks ago I bleed the day I ovulated so I felt it was strange. Went to my local gynocologist and she told me that this last pregnancy I had was not a pregnancy, but just my hormones tricking my body into pregnancy and miscarriage. Has anyone ever been told that???I was so frustrated, that know longer feel like I even want to try to have a baby. I am so scared and feel like I went through was nothing. At the time I got pregnant,we were not even trying since I did not think I could even get pregnant…so, I am sorry I am venting, but I am really confused…did that happen to you or anyone else you know???Well, good luck to you and baby dust always…

  25. Lyn says:

    I would LOVE to be pregnant again, we are trying! I have an almost 5yr. old and I am 42 yrs. Being a mom is the most important thing in the world to me. It is nice to have support from other mothers who are like minded. I love the positiveness.

  26. Mel says:

    Elisa, I had a doc tell me my pregnancy was all a trick, and not to stop taking the pill. Turned out I was pregnant, and almost lost my boy (lost something-maybe a twin?). Praise God for protecting him, and for some reason, I don’t put much faith in what outsiders tell me. A person knows their own body best.

  27. Mature1stmum says:

    Tried through 10 years marriage to get pregnant naturally then when we were not expecting I became pregnant at 40years old! This forum will be an avenue to share in other success stories, challenges and to encourage those still anticipating their own ‘miracle’.

  28. bella says:

    Hi ladies I am 43 yrs young with a 17, 14,4. We are now trying for a 4th. Will have mirena removed tomorrow. My previous pregnancies even the last one was very quick 2nd month of trying, but now I am older I am so scared it might be too late in the game. This site has given me hope and that I am not crazy.

  29. Penny says:

    I am 42 years old and have managed to concieve naturally. I did this using donor sperm (DIY @ home fresh) from a friend. I agonised for months and months (years) after I realised I wanted to concieve, being told I could not do so due to low egg count (AMH 1.0) and also being very overweight, and old!! Feel free to contact me if anyone is in a similar boat and wants tips on ‘how-to’s”.

  30. Anna says:

    I’m happy to find this site which I came upon via New Hope Fertility Center. I indeed have new hope that I too can conceive and be blessed with a child. Your comments are encouraging, and I hope to find helpful support in this community. Although my friends are with me in this, I’ve felt very alone because my family (parents/sibling) does not support my choice to become a parent after 40 and without a partner. The first fertility center I went to was so discouraging with the statistics, wanting me to do IVF and egg donation right away (at age 41). I’ve failed six IUI cycles, and my insurance company has cut me off, deeming further fertility treatment “medically unnecessary” and “futile.” But I am trying to stay hopeful that pregnancy can still happen for me. Succumbing to stress and anxiety is not helpful! I am now 42 turning 43. I don’t know how I will pay for IVF, but somehow I will make it happen. All the best to everyone here.

    • Kat says:


      I wanted to touch base to see if you are still going to New Hope Fertility Centre. I am also going there, maybe we can chat sometime about the experience.


  31. Vicky (http://Achildafter40 says:

    Hi Penny – Feb 10
    Congratulations, would love if you could share your tips. Am 1 month away from 41, my gynae has told that my LH is high and my AMH is low, she has put on clomid for 4 cycles, but I also have small fibroids. Would really appreciate if you could share your tips.

    • Rose says:

      Hi Vicky and everyone–Vicky I hope you have been successful in the year that has intervened between your comments and mine. But just to lay it out there: I conceived naturally at 45 and 2 months and gave birth one month shy of my 46th birthday. I also had a big uterine tumor plus a couple of smaller ones and my OBGYN insisted that I have surgery before I attempted pregnancy (I had lost two pregnancies at 43 and 45 both in the 10th week). After 16 years of marriage I did it! Great pregnancy, a healthy, perfect boy (I refused to do amnio because of the risk of miscarriage). I am now 52, I have a gorgeous 6-year-old son, brilliant, talented, he speaks three languages, draws and paints like a master and is a musical genius. Who would have thought it! And my fibroid has shrunk to 1 cm. My doctor still cannot wrap his head around my case. Now what did I do right to get where I am now? I guess, first I relaxed. I said to myself: “I am happy with my husband, let it be this way and let’s have fun!” At the same time I was taking folic acid every day for a month before conception, I drank zero alcohol, ate a rich breakfast and enjoyed spring time, nature, myself, my husband. I was positive overall and happy. So, good luck to everyone who is still trying.

      • Rose says:

        I did not clarify–I never did the fibroid surgery. I got pregnant instead!

      • Terri Davison (http://n/a) says:

        Dear Rose i came across what you wrote August 2 2014. I felt compelled to reach out to you! I became pregnant at 43 just 2 and half months before my 44th birthday in 2014! I successfully gave birth to the most perfect, beautiful, healthy girl on Nov,5 2014. I was hoping to connect with you and ask your advice about trying for one more baby? Hope to hear from you soon.

  32. Hi Vicky,
    There’s hope! I got pregnant naturally at 41 and 44, with 3 uterine fibroids.
    If you want to hear more of Penny’s story, go to the blog she wrote on “My Do-It-Yourself IUI Pregnancy at 41”.
    She did much to enhance her natural fertility. Also, if you go to the blog page and run a search on “natural fertility” or “pregnant naturally”, you should find lots of blogs on how to boost your fertility after 40. You can also join the A Child After 40 forums and ask other members.

  33. Maureen says:

    I conceived naturally three times within the last year, 2x when 44 and now at 45. No fertility drugs. The first one I had a MC, the 2nd a MC/Blighted Ovum, and now at 45 got pregnant “accidentally” and am currently 6 1/2 weeks pregnant. Hoping for the best, and that the baby develops normally and goes to term. My first two MC’s at 44 had genetic abnormalities:(

  35. Romashka says:

    hi Ladies,
    i am 41 and my birthday is early June, so I am still 41 and don’t want to add one more year, but I guess it will be coming soon… When I first got married, right after I turned 20, my (first) husband and I decided we wanted to wait for 5 years before having kids. Next monhth, i was pregnant! My son is 20 now. In that time, I got divorsed and then met my husband, who is a wonderful, wonderful man. When we got married, I was 32 and I felt that life was so busy, trying to build a new life with my husband, raising my son, and we moved to another country. So, the years flew and we always thought we would have more kids…sometime later. Finally, right before I turned 41 we stopped birth control and tried for a few months. My OBGYN recommended that we check everything, just to know, at the fertility clinic. So, we did all the tests, tried 3 IUI (without meds); and just completed the 1st IVF. Our tests are all good, but we are still working to get to the right results!
    I have to say, while I am quite educated in general, I was absolutely not aware of all these details and issues related to fertility. Since first time I got pregnant without event thinking about it, I always thought that this is how it is, for me and for everyone. I was really surprized when I saw my fertility doctor first, he talked about me like a very old lady. It was a bit discouraging. He is a great doctor, but any conversation he uses “consdering your age”….I don’t like that part at all.

    I am happy I found this community because I need to hear successful stories and keep my faith!

    • Name says:

      Hello there,

      I wish you all the best. I am also 41 (June as well). I have 3 kids, 12, 10 and 7 wich I conceived naturally. I would really like to have a 4th one, but cant seem to convince my husband.
      Any words of advice?

  36. Anna says:

    Has anyone had a hysteroscopy/dilation & curettage? My clinic has suggested it to remove any potential issues in the uterus and stimulate new and stronger lining growth. (But 1/1000 chance it’ll have adverse effect.) Apparently, it’s a procedure that’s rather routine in fertility treatments. I’m going to do it as my doctor recommended it, but I find it a bit scary to go in there and mess around. Also don’t like the idea of being under anesthesia. Curious if anyone has had experience with it.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Anna,
      My doctor has suggested the same D&C for me as well. I have not had it done, as we are collecting embryos for next few months. I will probably do it, as it seems that the benefits do outweigh the risks. Please let me know what you think and if you would like to talk more?

  37. Diane says:

    I am currently 48 and my son is turning 2 next month and my daughter is turning 10 in Dec. Both were conceived naturally. After my daughter was born we waited a few years and then tried for another child but were not successful. At 43 I basically accepted that we would only have one child and left it at that. Then when I was 44 I quit my stressful and demanding job because it became more important to spend more time together as a family and our work schedules would just not allow it. It meant cutting our income in half and has made things tight financially but it was the best decision I ever made on so many levels. Would you believe I got pregnant 6 months later! Unfortunately I miscarried but I got pregnant again 6 months after that and gave birth to a beautiful healthy boy. I know it was the stress keeping me from getting pregnant. I’m still a stay at home mom, and I’ll be turning 50 when my son starts junior kindergarten, and we’re not sure what retirement will look like (if there is such a word for us) but I’m loving every minute of it and my kids keep me young.
    Keep moving forward and stay positive because anything is possible (particularly if you can cut some of the stress out of your life).

    • Elisabeth says:

      Hi Diane, Just wanted to connect with you and thank you for sharing your story. I’m 51 and have an 8 year old. I love being a mom and all the joy it brings. Children do keep me young no question. Just wondering how you fit in with the other moms at school? I’m feeling a little on the isolated side as most of the moms are a decade to 2 younger. Just wondering how you mange that part of your motherhood experience? Thanks : )

  38. Delece James says:

    Anna Is it possible for you to switch your insurance?

  39. Lisa says:

    I am 42 ttc was recently told my tubes were damaged and IVF was my only option. I am nervous overwhelmed and all of the above. I dont have insurance and have no idea where the money will come from but that is the least of my worries. Just stressed and scared as I dont know what to expect nor do….any suggestion

    • kathy says:

      You have to be very emotionally strong and have the utmost support of you partner. It is not an easy road. i went thru my iuis and IVFs by the support I have and my faith in God. No jokes. Dont be scared the more relaxed you are the better but be prepared. i would advice you get your body nutritionally ready first . If i had the information i had at the time now. i wont have dont it when i did. Good Luck! By the way am still trying and I WILL SUCCEED

  40. Jamie says:

    Hello Everyone.
    I got married 2 years ago. My husband and I had decided we didn’t want any more children, so the fact that I had my tubes tied 12 years ago was ok.
    Now, we have changed our minds. The love we have is just unlike anything we have had before, in any relationship. To have a baby together, and share what we have and create a baby out of that love … is something we both are feeling so strongly. We have decided to go ahead with a tubal reversal. We want to try to conceive as naturally as possible. I have 5 children, the youngest is 12. His son is also 12. I had no problem getting pregnant before, in fact 4 of my 5 pregnancies were unplanned and I was on some form of birth control when I got pregnant. I also had my children at home with a mid-wife and had no issues. Longest labor was 6 hrs. and there were no issues with any of the babies or me with any pregnancy. I know I was blessed! So I am hoping that that will increase our chances for conceiving. I also have no health issues and am pretty active and my weight is in the normal range for my size. I have read so much negativity about babies after 40, it’s kind of scared me a little bit, and has started some uneasy feelings. I guess I found this site to help me get through these feelings.

  41. Therese says:

    Hi All,
    I really Love the idea of having a place like this to come and talk to people in similiar situations as myself. I’m just gone 40. My eldest is 23 I had her when I was 16 and I had my 3rd boy at 27yrs old he’s now 12 his brother is 15 (This month) & 18 yrs old. I also have a Grandchild aged 6 months from my 23 year old daughter. He’s a real beaut GBH & I look after him all the time until last week when my daughter moved out to her own apartment! My hubby & I have been trying naturally since I was 39yrs old about 10 months or so now and No luck BUT I have been very stressed out but now I am stress free:)) Well Almost! Anyway we’ve given up giong by that calender method (ovalationcalender. com) because I would give you aprox 4 good days to conceive & in all honesty everybody is different & most people are going to ovalte at different times each month! I thought & so did my husband that this ovalation thingy was actually difficult (He’s 42) & was a bit like “Oh I have to perform & I have to DO it even if I actually feel tired or just Not in the humour) so we just gave it up. I’m still hoping for the best obviously! My hubby would Love another baby but I think he’s finding it a bit difficult… He’s says he’s not but I don’t think he’s telling the truth.. I know he’s telling the truth when he says he wants another baby he sometimes finds it difficult to perform.. Any advise ladies? Also 9 yrs ago I was diagnosed with an abnormal smear which led to biopsys etc and then a colopscopy then smear tests every 6months then every year. It was at stage 3 and the Doctor says I didn’t know how lucky Iucky I was If I left it I would have been dead in a Year and a half!:0 This had been my 1st smear and the whole thing freaked me out!. Now this would be the 1st time trying since I got that colosposcy done (sorry for the spelling!:( ) They used lazer & only took at polo mint hole away they said. Would this affect my fertility? They never said it would & My Doctor always gave me the pill also when I turned 40 she wanted to put me on a POP only pill. I didn’t even bother taking it, I felt she was No actually “He” ( He was a stand in Doctor) Pushed it on to me even though I told him I didn’t want it. So I just took it & said nothing! Sorry for the rant girls! I’d just Love to talk to you all and get idea’s and experience etc.. Thanks and baby dust to you All!!:))

    I am 45 and last week found out that I am pregnant but unfortunately, had a MC last night. I was on clomid and the first cycle i got pregnant. I had my daughter naturally at 41 and I would love to have another one. We will try again and I have a good feeling that I will get pregnant again. Good luck to all of us

    I am 46 years old and 6 weeks pregnant. I have 3 grown sons and I haven’t had a baby since I was 21 years old!
    My husband and I decided to use donor eggs and it worked on our second attempt. I feel incredibly blessed!!

    Hello! I am not looking to join but thought I could leave word of encouragement. I am 30 years old and will wait to have children. That decision is affected by my own mother having me when she was 42 by C-section (in 1985). I was happy and healthy. One thing I could say about growing up with older parents is that I was very mature for my age and now as an adult I have am very conscientious of the elderly. I love them and work with them, and will mostly likely continue to. I count it a BLESSING that I was raised by older parents because the values of their generation was passed to me which I will admit makes me a bit at odds with my own generation (my parents were born in 1940 while most of my peers have parents born in the 60s). I have a lot of older friends and have never thought I had all the answers when I was younger because I was always relating to older people and learning from them. Anyways, don’t worry about being out of step with your child’s generation. Your unique situation is going to make for a unique individual, and the life experience you have and will be able to pass down to them will help them and not hinder them. Good luck 🙂
