Hi everyone, I just joined and am in need of support. My name is Julie I am 38 1/2 years old and TTC baby #2. It happened the first month we tried for our first when I was 36. This time I am having such difficulty. No one I talk to understands what kind of stress this is when your biological time clock is running out! Not my family, friends not even my husband. I am so terrified I won't be able to have a second one. I am constantly online reading about doom and gloom of ttc at my age. Anyone have any stories of hope for me?

Sorry I am younger than you and i am done.  I never ttc.  DD was a happy surprise for us.    I am presuming you have had a full exam to make sure it is safe for you to conceive at this age and there are no reproductive issues going on.

I am 37 and gave birth to b/g twins on Jan 26th :) they were conceived naturally!have Apparently the odds of this happening actually increase with age! Something I did NOT know, but sure do now! They are healthy and so am I, nothing wrong with trying for a baby at 38 in my opinion!!! So sorry you don't have the understanding and support you need right now!

My oldest was a one shot deal when I was 20... At 23 it took almost a year to conceive #2...so even younger moms have issues too. Don't give up yet!

 I am nearly 38.  I just had a baby.  It took us 9 cycles.  When I thought I was going to be trying again on cycle 10, I tested positive.  :) If needed, it would be easy to get Clomid from a doctor at your age.

Their is a test that you can take to find out when is the best time to conceive.You can get that test at the store. I used it and I got twins I was 35.I would just relax and don't put and pressure on yourself when it happens it happens.
