I had my first baby when I was 43, she is now 2 ½ years old. We tried conceiving for 8 months before I fell pregnant.
All the doctors gave me a low chance for getting pregnant, because of my age. But I did not believe them, and refused their IVF treatment they suggested.
We decided to try for another baby recently, and I just found out I am 6 weeks pregnant.
In our first month of trying! I am overjoyed!
