Those of you who got pregnant and had a baby after 40: How long did it take you to get pregnant? Did you conceive naturally or with medical help? Did you chart your cycles diligently, take OPKs, or were you more casual? Or did you even try at all?

Several years, naturally, charted for ages and quit in frustration with opk's here and there and a temp or two around O time sometimes, a few head stands - really, but they didn't do the job - mostly gave up while 39, got completely p__sed at last period before 40, then, shock me, missed the next period and am due tomorrow.

sososleepy - Congratulation and you give me hope. I turned 41 in June and i am still trying I'm not doing too much just bding when I feel like it. I did use clomid this time around because a friend had some left over because she is currently pg. I hope to get to know you better. Take care. Krissy68

It took us 10 months. I am 42. We consulted a fertility clinic, and I decided to consult an acupuncturist and herbalist who specialized in infertility. I went 2x/wk. I also decided to take on a project that forced me to not focus on my fertility. I took up training for a 1/2 marathon, which forced me to look at my nutrition and fitness level too. I did a lot a reading about maximizing my fertility. The most helpful was by a Dr. Greene who discussed hormone levels and fertility. As we were start a round of hyper-ovulation, I found out that we are pregnant. I am still in my first trimester, but we did it! Good luck.
