I'm on to a new Bach flower remedy, Larch.  It's for help with self-confidence, especially when facing difficult tasks.  Sounds perfect for me right now!

You're 44.


I think you really need to be honest with yourself. It's not going to happen naturally.

I'm really sorry you have fibroids, and I'm really sorry that means you'd probably have to do donor eggs (which come with all sorts of ethical issues) but it's just that it's too late to conceive a healthy baby with your own eggs. At 42, 90% of your eggs remaining are defective. Your chances at 44 are next to nothing.

I'm so sorry. :(

Gee, thanks so much for the positivity. I am not stupid and I am well aware that as one ages one's chances of getting pregnant become less. However many people do get pregnant at this age and older, and with my regular periods and healthy vital signs I don't feel ready to give up on my own eggs just yet. If you are interested in this topic, I suggest you do some reading on it, there are various interesting article that I have flagged in this blog under the posting and also there is a lot of interesting information on the topic in the Fertility Diet book I have linked ot in the sidebar. In the meantime, I wonder why you feel you need to bring this negative tone here.

Wow! I can't believe such negativity was brought to this awesome forum that helps others! You were nice to even allow the post. Lots of women can and do conceive in their forties. I have two friends that are almost 42. They each just had healhy baby girls and they weren't even trying to get pregnant. I for one am grateful for this blog. I'm rooting for you. Please don't let what was said discourage you!

Thanks so much for the kind words Ginae. I also know many women who had children in their 40s, several amazing stories against all the odds. So indeed I'm not ready to give up yet!
