Am I selfish?

I have 3 wonderful girls and never in a million years thought I would want to do it again! But I have remarried to a great guy who has no children of his own. Even though he says he is happy with our family, all I think about is making a baby with him. But I am now 40yrs old......UGH!!! we have been trying for 2 years now and nothing. Has anyone conceived later in life? Or should I throw in the old towel?

  • maybe you can just say, whatever happens happens? Just don't use any type of contraceptive and just wait and see. Are you both ok if you don't conceive? are you stressing out about conceiving? do you have the book "taking charge of your fertility"? its a great book and it may help as well.... its good to know this stuff anyways, even if you are not trying to conceive... it just helps you know your body better.

  • My mom had my brother at 45. She didn't find out she was pregnant until she went for her annual and she was 5 months along. She says to this day she thought she was beginning menopause & now calls my brother her menopause baby.
    It is possible. Good luck!!
