Maddie, I'm right along with you. I'm 32, going into my second month of TTC, Darn AF reared her ugly head early this month. Now I don't know how many days my cycle is and when I will ovulate. We're going to BD every other day for the month, and maybe every day during when I "think" will be my "o" time. It is very frustrating. I've heard that stress plays a huge factor, so I am determined to not get worked up over it (even though it is hard). Go treat yourself to a pedicure and go out for lunch with your friends. Lots of babydust to you and cross your fingers for me!!!

For my 3rd child it took 3 months and for my 4th child it took 2 months after I finished BFing. I will be 33 this year and DC #4 is due in Feb 2006

Hi there. I got pregnant without trying on Feb. 27th of 2004 but unfortunately had a m/c in April. I got pregnant again in June of 2004 (we were trying that time) and am holding in my arms my perfect little girl. I was 33 when we conceived and 34 when I gave birth. What we did was have s_x every other day and it worked great!! Good luck ladies!!

VERY QUICK. I'M 30 and got pregnant the month after I quit the pill. I had been taking the pill since I was 20!

took 3 1/2 yrs, and iam 30 now, but 29 when i got pregnant. it's all about timing really. i think we just weren't planning it out perfectly, and we did use infertility means, though there wasn't anything found out to be wrong with us. fertility is not just about age, infertility can affect anyone, at any age, so it's hard to answer your question, without giving a very broad scope of answers. iam sure it will happen soon, if it still hasn't already! been there, so i understand. hugs, sherry ps- now that iam 30, i hope it doesn't take another 3+ years to concieve again. yikes!

Hi, good news is that at 33 you are not too old to start trying...I turned 31 this year, yet we were successful at the very first time! I am now almost 6 wks pg!!! Good luck!

Hi, I'm 33 and pregnant for the first time. We tried for at least a year. But my best friend who's the same age got pregnant her first month trying. Good luck!
