I'm JC and 40ish and counting.  I am a single mother of 1 boy and trying to have another.  Thanks for allowing me to join and you won't get any drama from me.  I do like to vent sometimes only because I listen to everybody and no one listens to me so sometimes I just want to tell what's on my mind.  Now my question is this.  I have a S/O and we are just trying to have a second child.  Today was the day after my ovulation what's the chances of being preggers and what can I do to increase these odds outside of my just purchasing clomid.  I ask this because I am in the 40 and above range and I get depressed when I hear my odds may be decreasing due to age.  i mean if the 50 and 60 year old can get preggers why can't I?  First vent of the group.  Thanks for listening and your input.

Well I had my dd at almost 41. If your healthy, go for it and have fun. My doc refused clomid for Mr, said we hadn't been trying long enough. So I had a friend send me some from Mexico.

 when my second husband and I were trying, I was told to elevate my pelvic area up for at least 30 minutes afterwards, so I put pillows under me and watched tv.  I also took an herbal supplement called Lydia Pinkam and it worked both times I wanted to get pregnant.  welcome to the group, venting is always allowed, and we are pretty drama free!
