Older Moms 42+, share and care


This thread is for Moms who are or hope to be an older Mom soon. There are a lot of ups and downs when you go through this process (normally-at 30) but to attempt to do it past 40 or 41 is scary to say the least. I am creating this board to help women who fit this criteria to find support, share experiences, and give caring understanding while going through or attempting to go through the processes usually involved. May each of you find joy in the journey to being a Mom no matter what age.


Hi! I was 40 yo when started ttc since 2014. Dh - 42 yo. Soon I was diagnosed on PCOS, blocked fallopian tubes. amh <3,2. Dr suggested PGD as I had a miscarriage the previous years before going ivf route. She also suspected me to be a carrier of Wilson disease which is a very rare treatable disorder. I was through 2 failed cycles ivf with own egg whilst looking onto more investigation. Finally we were told my eggs were not going to work at all. So we moved onto donor egg. It took us 2 shots to conceive with them.
