    Default Any other late starters?

    Hi there, just wondering if anyone else has started on the baby trail late like me.... I'm 43 been on the trail for 25mths now. Am on my fourth cycle with clomid and have fingers crossed for a BFP very soon! Just wanted to meet others like myself to share the journey.

    Re your message to me. Didn't see your own message, so I didn't see your age. Didn't mean to be insensitive.

    Hi Saffi
    No offence taken ... really! I had planned to ttc in my mid 30's as really wanted to be a mum and have kids before I hit 40 but things can't always go according to plans... I was having such bad back probs that I had to delay till I had sorted out the cause. I finally got the courage up to have surgery on my R leg... had it lengthened by 3cm.. long story got a disease @ 5mths old so have had ongoing issues and ops. It took a while for the body to settle back down but it was the best thing I ever did... I guess you don't know what life will throw at you. I guess you think it will just happen and when it doesn't... well it can be a little frustrating. I will only try till I am 45... will look into fostering in the next 12 months or even adoption! I guess if it doesn't happen it just means there are other things I am supposed to do with my life now. You have to adapt to what life delivers you.. count your belssings. My biggest one is a happy marriage and a lso great relationships with my 10 neices & nephews...

    Hi Kate
    Just thought I'd stick my nose in to wish you luck.
    I started ttc in 1990, had our first IVF in 1995, and our last in 1999 (I think?). We had no success. Then we went our separate ways after two more years of just about every natural therapy known to man. I waited four years then had two IVF attempts last year using donor sperm - both unsuccessful. I'll turn 44 in September and have pretty much come to the end of the ttc road unless a miracle happens. While I can afford to keep going, I can't on one income if it means being 50 and still having no kids and no money to show for it. I had to make that decision at the end of last year - very difficult.
    So now, I'm concentrating on travelling. A tiny little part of me still holds out hope that I'll meet someone and fall naturally. There was never any reason for our infertility.
    I have everything crossed for you and totally understand when you say that things don't always go according to plan!!! I'll be following your progress very closely
    Good luck
    Sue

    Hi Kate.
    I am 43 and TTC. I already have three gorgeous children but would love to add one more. Fell pregnant last May but sadly had a late M/C in September. No reason could be found and they put it down to a cord accident. We trying again and hope we can end our family building on a good note.
    Best of luck to you. I hope we both get that BFP soon.

    Hi Sue
    Thank you so much for your comments.... You have certainly been through a bit...
    I do know that miracles can happen... we had freinds on the baby trail for years, spent thousands on IVF, they finally gave up sold all the baby stuff and went travelling.... they now have 2 daughters both conceived naturally... no reason for any of it!
    Maybe stress has more to answer for than we think.
    I am sure there is someone special that you need to meet first.... wishing you good things along that journey!
    I will be 44, Aug 30 ...(are you a Virgo too?) Really thinking that I will stop ttc sometime between then and 45 at this stage.
    Travel looks good... started to teach myself Italian so that I am ready for that journey too!
    Sorry for delayed response we have been away for a few days... trip to town... was nice to touch civilization!!
    Feeling very tired today upto cd 24 temp still up so have everything crossed!!!
    Love Kate

    Hi Kate
    Well, CD 24 and temp still up.......sounds promising \/ I'm hoping for the best. I'm sure you'll get there. I'll be watching closely over the next week or so....
    Yes, I'm a true Virgo. Do you have people telling you "you're such a virgo"? I sometimes think stress was a big factor for me. Mind you, I tried hypnotherapy, counselling, herbs etc etc and it didn't make any difference. Maybe it's a virgo thing
    BTW - Italian is the way to go. I buzzed off over there after my divorce. Had a fling (had never done that before) with a beautiful bright blue eyed Italian with lovely dark curls =P~ . Four years later, we're still in touch periodically. I told him about my last IVF attempt, he said "Sue, why you not coming back to me - I free! I am love giving you baby". Hmmmm, might have to make a detour when I'm OS in Aug/Sep....

    SuziQ, WTF are you waiting for? - get on a plane and see that man NOW!!! Seriously! LOL

    Hi Kate, we conceived our first baby easily when I was 39 but have been trying for over 3 years for number 2 with no luck. I am now 44 and will give up when I hit 45. I am a firm believer though, that we all have some "good eggs" in there - just gotta hit the right one. Hope this is the month for you!

    Hi Sue
    I'm with Anney on the Italian... get yourself over there... you deserve some fun! He sounds lovely and what an offer... what are you waiting for? :smt102 Go for it! What do they say... nothing ventured...

    Yep am the true Virgo too.... we have a group of freinds and there is one Virgo in each couple... the non Virgo's are always comparing our traits... it is very funny!

    Hi Anney :flower:
    Thanks for your comments and joining in ... hope we both get a very soon.
    Love Kate

    But getting back to your thread Kate, I wish all of you success.
    You deserve it, no matter what your biological age!
