Getting pregnant late 30s

Common Questions and Answers about Getting pregnant late 30s


202380 tn?1267910566 Since Oct 06, when I believe an HSG unblocked my tube, I 've been getting pregnant, but losing them. I had one pregnancy that I kept until 8 weeks and they even saw baby's HB which is suppose to lower miscarriage rate to 5%. I've since then got pregnant in late Jan and mid march, but lost them both before I was five weeks. Basically one day I had a postive HPT, but then the next week it was gone.
1483631 tn?1319232246 and the doctor writes that women in their early thirties have only a 10% chance of getting pregnant each cycle, and 76% chance of becomming pregnant within a year. I didn't know that at 32 my age acts against me, had I known that, I would have started thinking about baby #2 three years ago, when I was still in my late 20s and my odds were much better! Just wanted to share that because I feel depressed.
Avatar f tn My first marriage we rushed into it and I didn't realize what i was getting into until after I was pregnant. But I turned 30 in August and die want to wait any longer. So far this pregnancy has been better than my first.
Avatar f tn as easy as it was the first time is not a predictor of future attempts at getting me!! I know from experience. Also the other thing you are up against is the high risk of miscarriage in your late 30s. Keep that in mind if you do get pregnant. Lots of these pregnancies fail and you have to keep trying.
1219499 tn?1410753330 When I started acupuncture about 6 months ago (for recurrent miscarriges) he told me he wanted me to stop taking clomid because I didn't need it as I was ovulating on my own. Well I haven't gotten pregnant since stopping the clomid and every month I used clomid I got pregnant (3 times). I know I am ovulating on my own but conception just doesnt seem to be happening for some reason and I'm getting impatient - not to mention the acupuncture is really expensive and we are not well off.
Avatar n tn The truth is, you really do slow down the older you get and by the time you hit your late-20s or early 30s, you will have so much more to offer as someone who has developed a strong family unit with her husband, and has enjoyed life and accumulated experiences that will be all the more rewarding for your child.
Avatar f tn In fact, if you're in your late 30s, it might make more sense to begin trying to conceive nine to 12 months after having a c-section. It's not uncommon for women over 35 to have trouble getting pregnant with the second baby, and the risk of having difficulty conceiving increases with age. The best time to get pregnant again can differ from woman to woman, so talk to your healthcare provider about your specific circumstances.
Avatar f tn i am nervous about this. i know i'm most likely not pregnant (i sure don't want to be) but i am getting worried that there is something wrong with me. i know you said relax and it will come which is what i'm going to try and do. i also will use condoms at all times from now on!!
760556 tn?1255708681 It seems that many of the people trying to conceive after age 40 have already had children when they were younger, and seem to have a better chance of getting pregnant. Is there anyone out there who has never gotten pregnant before and has gotten pregnant now after age 40?? I am also on the over 35 forum and have been given great advice as well as hope, thanks for any comments you may have. Good luck to all!!
205230 tn?1237408793 Okay, so I know 5.2 HCG is pregnant but I wanted to know if it is enough to show on a digital EPT so I took it and the result is Not Pregnant. Do you think it could have gone down since yesterday? How much HCG do you need to show on a digital??? Maybe I'll call the 800 number. I haven't had any spotting today and barely any yesterday. The gooey blood stuff was Tues. night only. I am so am I pregnant or not????
611067 tn?1458595083 I have had a long history of getting pregnant and having miscarriages. However, this past year I have felt inclined to attempt to get pregnant again. I look very young for 46 and feel young as well. My periods are more normal than they ever have been and my blood work actually is better than it was when I was in my early 30s trying to get pregnant. We did the fertility treatments with no luck at all! The doctors never understood why I did not get pregnant - no real physical reason for it.
Avatar n tn Should i take a HPT? No matter what i am going to the doctor. I need some reassurance that i am not pregnant. My boyfriend and my adult friends say it is not possible unless he ejaculates right into your vagina. I need help.
Avatar f tn I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and had been taking percocet before I found out. From month 1-4 of my pregnancy I didn't take any pills. Unfortunately, I relapsed and slowly started using from the middle of my 4th month to now (37 weeks). I have stopped a couple of times, but have had issues because of withdrawal fears ECT... I am so scared. I love my baby and have been lucky enough to have the growth and tests be all healthy up to this date.
609289 tn?1220807246 My husband wants another child, but with diabetes, being overweight by a lot (the weight hasn't come off), and having an autoimmune disease, there are just too many complications for me to get pregnant again. I'm in my late 30s. My husband I think grieves that he can't have me pop out another kid, but he also has to respect my wishes to stay in good health because if I pop out a kid and can't be a mom or have good health enough to stay around and raise the child...
Avatar f tn just that one night. but sure enough, it was more and more and more. it started with us only getting 1 30mg each. but of course it elevated from there. but long story short, i got to the point that i was taking around 3 pills a day, more or less, every single day. so here i am, like 5 months later, trying to detox before my baby is born. im using suboxone, in low doses. but i just completely quit using oxycodone and switched to suboxone one day.
Avatar n tn Genetically, on my mothers side of the family, she and her mother had their periods unti they were in their late 50's! My mom, and two sisters had no trouble at all getting pregnant. They were younger than I am, but I am hoping that this plays a factor. Thank you for reading my story. Also, a lot of women do have babies naturally in their 40's!
873190 tn?1304816575 I have two close friends, btw, who also got pregnant (both twice--both successful) once they stopped with the fertility clinics. One was over 40 the other was in her late 30s. And I have another close friend who ACCIDENTALLY got pregnant at 42. It certainly happens. Congratulations to you and your husband!
Avatar n tn The husband and I are trying sometime to get pregnant this year even though there is a certain person I won't say who right now who doesn't want me to get pregnant but rather adopt a kid. Anyways so if its not that difficult getting pregnant then why am I not already? My doctor has up the dose on my Levothryoxine medication from 25 mcg to 75 mcg. My levels are still a little to low which honestly doesn't make any sense.
Avatar f tn I hated the smell of the poignant smoke that was on them all the time, the crazy lies they would tell to try to get more, getting **** thrown at me while i was pregs working the front desk, i judged these people. My mom is also very sick and has had a hard life and is on a million meds for a million things, and i hate it.
Avatar n tn I noticed that I was getting bigger in the belly and was making jokes about being pregnant. Other people noticed and asked me about it, that is when I got a bit concerned. I have put on at least 25 lbs. and the only place that swells is my belly.Swelling is more later in day, after food. I have started trying not to eat as it makes me so uncomfortable. My butt and thighs are the same size. I admit to being overweight,but this is getting obscene.
760797 tn?1303268140 I'm becoming anxious and a bit depressed, since the loss, it is taking longer than normal and now I'm getting concerned. We tried pre-seed last month and I am taking pre-natals. I'm just looking for some suggestions, really. I was thinking of talking this over with my dr but don't know if it has come to that yet. With each month I'm getting more discouraged. I know 3 months is not a long time for ttc but I just worry b/c it has never taken us more than a few months.
631676 tn?1333721803 But I have lost a few now and many of my friends are young ladies in their late 20s and early 30s. They all get pregnant at the drop of a hat! LOL. Good for them but each time, I'm a bit jealous. And each time there's this little dance about how much of their experience they can share with or around me. I would love to know more about these babies and the experience but it does hurt my feelings a bit. So like you, I'm tight lipped after the initial "CONGRATS.
Avatar m tn Then I get a text two weeks later saying she is having morning sickness and thinks she may be pregnant. She says something must have gone wrong and can't take a Home Pregnancy Test as she has a rare blood condition. Is this likely? She says her period is late then mentions that she now has only one tube and doesn't know how this 'happened'. She claims she will go to the doctor in a couple of weeks for a blood test.
Avatar n tn Hi All, My prorblem is that i have recenlty found out i am 5 weeks pregnant but i am getting married on the 14th June so i figured out ill be 15-17 weeks and i am just praying and hoping to god that i dont show by this time as i ahve already bought my wedding dress so i am a little stressed lol, but happy Angie
Avatar n tn A friend and ex-coworker (a man) suggested I take chasteberry to help me get pregnant. He said his wife had some kind of medical issue that they thought would make getting pregnant difficult. She took the chasteberry and got pregnant and now they have a healthy baby. However, I'm a good 8-10 years older than his wife. I'm wondering if it will help with basically just being old.
Avatar f tn I'm 38 and 5 weeks pregnant with my third.. I'm getting remarried in a week..
Avatar n tn My OB/GYN told me that generally it's the same women who have no problem getting pregnant in their mid- to late-30s who also have no problem getting pregnant in their early to mid 40s. Other women have a hard time even in their 20s. My only advice is if you decide to do ivf again you make sure you go with the most aggressive protocol there is (they probably did this to begin with given your wife's age but I would definitely check with other people and doctors to be sure).
Avatar f tn I found out I was pregnant in June 2011. I stop taking them for a week because I was so high off the fact we were having a baby and didnt want to do anything to hurt it. We decided to get 4 perc 10's one night and then never take them again. He had 2 I had 2. Well that started the roller coaster back over.
5002615 tn?1366017609 So when i found out i was pregnant was at 14 weeks. but i always had that feeling that i was because i missed my period. but since i was in denial i would tell myself that it was normal my period just skipped a months since i would hear girls that missed theirs for a month or two except for mine was regular. finally in the third month that my period didn't show up that's when i was okay im probably pregnant. that's when i decided to take the home test and all three came out positive.
