I am 42 and TTC. What do you think?**Even More INFO added**
First off a big thank you to everyone for their well wishes. I really appreciate them.
As for all the comments about being healthy. I am healthy. I work out 5 times a week. Don't smoke, not a big drinker just a glass of wine or a beer maybe when DH and I have date night. Eat pretty healthy. My worst habit is Diet Coke. I have recently been to the Doctor and got the green light to go ahead. DH is healthy, eats a mostly vegetarian diet and has a very active job.
Financially we good. Not rich but we do not go without. We purchased a smaller home in a great community 12 years ago. We could of bought a lot more house but we wanted me to be able to quit my job and become a SAHM.
As far as my marriage, it is pretty great and we are really in tune with each other. We have been together forever. Before babies we traveled a lot. We may be older parents but we decided early on we would wait. As for having more patience..well some days yes and a lot of days no.
What can I say. I love my family and life.

Again thank you to everyone for some great and positive responses. As for the nay sayers that is ok. You are entitled to your opinion. I never expected this kind of response. It has been quite overwhelming. I have not had a chance until now to finish reading, DH works 12 hours a day and 6 days a week. This is his only day off so we have been spending time as a family.
For those who asked why we waited 2 reasons really. We married very young and never even thought about starting a family. Then when we turned 30 we knew we were ready. We had 5 miscarriages in 6 years. So when we stopped trying it was quite a shock 6 months later to be pregnant. We were blessed with a healthy baby and then when he was 1 year old we found out again we were pregnant. Had another healthy baby. As I said during both pregnancies we declined the genetic testing.
As for all the older Mom's out there. YOU ROCK AND KICK A$$!!! You have energized and empowered me. You are right I own my body and have never been more comfortable in it or felt sexier.
Thanks everyone and if we are blessed to become pregnant I will let you know.
