Trying to conceive

I'm 35 and I've had a neo-natal death back in October, and a m/c in Jan - and I'm just worried that I'm too old or will be soon to have a baby. I'm waiting to try again - just until April so we dont cross over our little boys due date (21st Dec) as I'd hate to be going through all the scans etc at the same times, it would bring back too many memories......can I ask what age you are, and what you think is too old / too late?

I'm 34 this year, I conceived my eldest when 29 & was 30 when she was born, my youngest was 21mths later.
Each of us is different but they say the average age for becoming a 1st time mum these days is thought to be 29-30 so on that theory many women aren't having families until within their 30s.

thanks ladies - think I just needed to hear others say it here, my brain is all over the place worrying that it'll be too late.
I'm not using ov sticks or anything - I never with either pg, and I fell first time after I lost my wee boy, so I know I work, and I've worked my body out pretty well (sad that I have the experience to do that tho!) - we'll start ttc in April, and I'll just take it easy and see how things go.
Calee - hope you're good mrs, how you feeling?

thats great news girl - here's to a boring few months ahead for you and that little bean
Hopefully I'll have some good news to share come May time, that would just be the best - I'm not one for having lots of patience so this is really testing me. Like you tho, its just one day at a time.
take care of you (and your bean)
