Hello all! I am not yet pregnant. I am here solely for advice. I am 38 and have 3 children ages 7, 5 and 10 months. We decided after our last one that we would be done having children. But now we are both considering a 4th. I am a bit nervous because I will be at least 39 when i deliver, if I were to get pregnant right away. Also I feel that my older two would be missing out. I didn't plan for the 5 year gap between my second and third...there were two miscarriages. My husband and I go bacj and forth on this issue. My ONLY reason really for not trying for another is my age. Any suggestions? Anyone in similar situations?

sophiegirl, don,t give up and stay positive. i was trying for 3 years for my first child and eventually had a wee girl when i was 36. straight after i started trying for number two and when nothing was happening after 6 months I started clomid. nine cycles later still nothing and we were preparing to go for ivf. At times I just thought I should be glad that I was lucky to have one child as so many are not that fortunate. Clomid induced mood swings and constant disapointment put our relationship to the test and I started to question if it was really worth it. I read on internet that vitamin b6 can help when trying to concieve and I don,t know if it was a coincidence but the first cycle i took it i fell pregnant. my gorgeous wee daughter is now 5 months old and I am so glad we didn't give up trying.
