Where to start. I am 36 and have been trying to conceive since Dec 2010. Thought I'd be pregnant by now. Wanted to give birth before my 37th b-day which is in Dec but not happening now. Husband (38) thinks he's too old for a baby and would prefer to not try any longer. Been saying last 2 months that was the last month to try. I have no one else to confine in or seek advice from woman to woman for I have no close friends. Been wanting another child for 5 years however had to put if off for 3 of them for moving/job reasons. Then my husband put if off the other 2 yrs. He says he loved to have had more children (we have a 6 yr old) but that we missed the boat so to speak. I think he might me right. Any advice about how to deal with the disappointment and heartache of missing that boat? Or even words of wisdom to keep trying or just fact facts? I feel/think I'm (we're) not too old but perhaps I am. Someone please share some wisdom...thank you.
You're definitely not too old. Although the train is slowly starting to leave(just to be honest). Potentially only TTC 4 months is not long at all.
I would say if you aren't pregnant by 6 months, to call a specialist if you want to continue the journey. The sooner the better.
There is no "right" answer to this. It all depends on how you & your husband feel.
I would talk to him more. Is he saying you missed the boat because he feels like a failure, or because he really doesn't want any more kids?
Also have you tried OPKs(Ovulation Predictor Kits)? They help deteremine when you are ovulating. I would try them this cycle if I were you!
