Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hi, I'm 34 and have a gorgeous 2.5yr old son, but for the last 3 months I've been trying to get pregnant for the second time and although I know I should relax I'm starting to feel increasingly stresssed and anxious.
It is'nt helped by the fact that the first time I got pregnant straight away (2 weeks after my IUD was removed) and I didnt know I was pregnant until the morining sickness started at 6 weeks also 3 of my friends have just got pregnant for the 2nd time and although 1 took 6 months for the other 2 it happened straight away.
So now I'm starting to worry that it's because of my age (I'm 35 in 2 months) I eat healthly and I've stopped drinking unlike the first time I got pregnant!!.
hopefully next month

3 months is not long th be trying, so don't fret yet. It will most likely happen soon, and 35 is not old either.

Hi Chell welcome to mfm.
I'm Rach mum to Tom 3 Jc 2 and 28weeks with boy number 3. As most regulars know on here I have had problems ttc,took 14 mths for DS 1 only 8mths for DS 2 and over 17mth for this one.
Only advice I ever give....it works but had trouble following it myself......RELAX! Concentrate on anything and everything else,it will happen,I'm proof,but I also know how hard it is to think about anything else apart from being pregnant.
Don't stress,take every month at a time,it will happen. Baby dust to you x x Oh and by the way 35 is NOT old!!!!!!! I'm not far behind you chuck!!!!!!!!!

hey michelle i'm zoe and mummy to charlie who is 2.5 also. we have decided to try for baby number 2 after xmas and i'm worried to that it will take a little longer this time around especially since charlie was a big surprise and i was still on the pill at the time, also i've put on some weight probably about 3 stone since then which i dont think will help either, but i agree with the girlies above, try and relax when u can lol and not think about it too much (easier said than done i know) also try not to compare yourself to your friends as easy as it is to do so everybody is completly different hunny and it will happen when u least expect it.
35 is not old :0) so remember that and smile, blowing a big sprinkling of baby dust your way
zoe x x

I'm with you. Also on the "wrong" side of 35... had DS at 39 and now number 2 is proving v difficult... we've been trying for nearly 18 months now. I've just today started on clomid as a bit of a last ditch attempt. we kind of feel that if nothing happens in the next 3 months (our treatment period) then that's it for our family, which does make me sad.
If you still have no luck in the next few months go see your GP for a subfertility referral. They are not supposed to do anything until you've been trying for 12 months, but it all takes ages. It wouldn't hurt to be a little ahem, "overly generous" in telling how long you've been trying to get the wheels in ,motion that little bit earlier.

Hi all yep i know all about the waiting game for nr 2 been trying a year now with doing all the healthy usuals, don't fret about nearly being 35 so not old! im hoping for another stint on clomid too just in case i need another boost. The waitng is the hardest part of ttc especially when your body plays tricks on you and gives you all he signs that you might get a bfp. I totally agree with salome2001 it does take ages when you start the dr stuff so i'd be telling a few little white ones to get you ahead of the game, i know i would do that if i'd thought on a bit this time round. good luck x

Im Jess, Im 22, I Have A DD Who's 3 Year's 3 Month's, & Me And My Fiance Have Been LTTTC Our Second Child For Just Over 3 Year's Now, Yes Its Been That Long & Yes We Started TTC Not Long After DD Was Born, But Thats How Much I Want A Bigger Family & Still TTC Now. 2 Month's Ago I Was Diagnosed With PCO (Polycystic Ovaries) & Found Out I Dont Ovulate (Well To This Moment Of Time I Dont Know If I Ovulate Some Month's Or None At All) But Am Going For Another Blood Test CD21 This cycle To See If I Ovualted This Month, So This Is My Last TWW (Two Week Wait) Before Treatment. If Still No BFP This Month Weither Or Not I Ovulated This Month & Depending On My Fiances SA (Sperm Analysis) Result's Which TBH (To Be Honest) Are Most Likely Going To Be Normal (Like Before), I Will Start 50mg Of Clomiphene From CD2-6 For 2 Month's, And Im Now Relaxed & Waiting Peicefully For My BFP, I Didnt Start To Worry & Panic Until I Had Been TTC For 18 Month's So 3 Month's Is Nothing To Be Worrying About. Just Relax & Im Sure Your BFP Will Come Soon. The More Stress & Anxiousness You Put On Your Self The Less Likely You Are To Conceive. x X x
Good Luck & Sending You All (TTC'ers) Loads Of Sticky Magic Baby Dust. x X x
