I am 38 years old and this month will be our 6 months ttc. I am getting really scared that it just might not happen. I have already seem my doctor for a pre-pregnancy check up and everything went great. I guess what I am searching for here is success stories and maybe some hope that my family will grow! any tips?

Has your partner been checked for potency? Do you track your ovulation and/or have sex at least once every two days? Have you been taking pre-natal vitamins? I know it's hard, but try to relax. Stress can be a factor in TTC.

There's no cut-off age when trying to have a baby. Yes, the risk elevates as you get older. But if you take care of yourself, there shouldn't be any reason you couldn't have a successful, full-term pregnancy, even in your 40's.
