Fertility over 40 | bostonmuslimah

Assalam alaykum,

So much for the writings about single motherhood :P. That will have to wait for another day. For now much of my focus and energy has been on getting pregnant.

I am 42 and have noticed that there really isn't that much in the way of support for women over 40 trying to conceive or having children. That boggles my mind since everywhere I personally look there are older moms out there with either big bellies or little ones in hand.

The biggest dilemma is whether to just let nature take it's course or to nudge it along. We are only in our third month of TTC, but still, given my age we have made an appt to see a fertility specialist so see what our options are. The rollercoaster ride that is the wait between ovulation and the arrival of the dreaded aunt flo is so amazingly emotionally stressful!!! There's even a website on it www.twoweekwait.com . Reading how some of the women overanalyze each twinge, nauseous millisecond, etc. in the hopes that it's a sign of pregnancy you'd think they should all be comitted...............until you're actually in that 2wkwait yourself!

Anyways just thought I'd make a note and any and all duas are very very welcome.
