Hi, I know that it has been 3 years since you posted on here about being 37 and pregnant, I am 37 and just found out that I am 5 weeks pregnant for my fourth. I have a 20, 16 and 5 year old. I am worried about DS with this pregnancy. How did everything turn out for you?
) I'm pregnant at 37 lol
Both me & hubby r 18, ill be 19 on my due date- july 12th so ill be 37 weeks tomorrow!
I had my first baby when I was well past age 37. While it is much harder to GET pregnant at 37, it is not necessarily any more risky to be pregnant. The ease of pregnancy depends a lot more on your health than it does on your age. If you are in excellent health, getting enough to eat in a good balance of categories (a lot of protein, some carbs, not too much candy, etc.
I got pregnant when we started trying at 38. I also got pregnant 3 times at 39. No problem at all. I am now 40 and trying again, and my OB is very optimistic. It's true it can be a bit more challenging in our late 30's and 40's, but this site is a testament to how many women conceive successfully. I wish you luck, and look forward to reading your post that you are pregnant!!!
I'm 7 weeks pregnant also and I'm 37 this is my 3rd pregnancy . I'm a little worried at this time about complications and birth defects too. I hope everything goes well for both of us .
m pretty sure you could get pregnant at 37.there is lots of women on here your age and even older who are pregnant.
so those could be a couple reasons thats what i heard when i was pregnant at least with my DD...cuz while i was at work and everyone wanted to feel her she wouldn't move then when i would get home and relaxed she would move all the time...
I guess I don't know what I was thinking wanting a baby now at my age when I should be having grandkids. When I got pregnant a couple months after marrying my new husband I thought it was easy till I lost my baby. Now it seems impossible to get pregnant even though I have had a couple implantations. Maybe its just not meant to be. I'm 46 and everyone thinks I'm crazy for even wanting a baby. Yesterday I would be 37 weeks along and my heart cries for the baby I can't birth or hold.
By march I was pregnant. But at 8 weeks pregnant I miscarried. We were upset. But by October I found out I was pregnant again. With the shot it will take at least a year to completely get out of your system. Hang in there. You'll be pregnant before you know it.
I am almost 37 years old and have never been pregnant. I know I have PCOS and irregular periods since age 12. Any positive and inspriational news out there? Thanks, Hopefull.
I was able to get pregnant at the age of 40 with my own eggs and delivered my son on my birthday, which made me 41 at delivery. He is a healthy 6 month old baby boy. Your age is only 36 which is two years younger then me when I started to try and two years is a lot. I'm sure you will be just fine when you start to try. Good luck to you!
Does anyone here know of someone that became pregnant naturally with no medical intervention at all, at age 45? I turned 45 in February, I have no children, and was just wandering if it is common, because I just don't hear very much at all that it happens. I was always very irregular with my cycles, but since turning 40, they have been like clock work.

Are my chances of birth defects much higher at this age. If I do get pregnant what are my options for testing to help ease my mind. What tests should I do before trying to conceive and what tests can be done after conception? I am a CF carrier, my husband is not.
Sometimes it just takes longer to get pregnant after age 35, but try to stay positive. If your insurance covers fertility you might want to see an RE since it has been more than a year of ttc. Good luck. I hope it happens soon for you.
Wow seeing this makes me feel allot better. Sometimes i get embarrassed about being pregnant at my age....i like knowing theres more of us.
My husband and I were sitting in a restaurant today, and the waitress brought us our meal. Now, I am almost 16wks pregnant, and dh ordered liver and onions and just how his meal looked was enough to turn my stomach. So I said when she put the meal down, "I'm pregnant and he just has to order the liver and onions!". The waitress replied, "what a mean dad!" and then she walked away. At first I thought she was making reference to dh being the baby's father...
First preg at 37, just had healthy baby boy 8 weeks ago at 38. typing one handed as we speak! Dr wanted to know if I was going to do a few more! I have 4 friends all with pregs in their late 30's early 40's. Perfectly normal now days. Why waste your 20's??!
If they ARE born at 37 weeks, as you'd presume, that would only mean they were delivered 3 weeks early. So you're just taking off an extra three weeks that are throwing the numbers off more than they already are. So your estimations for Mid-May are off by some three weeks. According to this right here, when you put in the date of her LMP, it says that she should be over 25 weeks, and due on June 8. [[http://www.whenmybaby.com/pregnancycalendar.
