Odds of Conceiving by Age

Women, compared to what men have, are born with a set number of eggs. And during the menstrual period, the body releases one or two eggs. Further, the body knows that it has to release those viable eggs first. Does it really matter? Yes it does, especially for women who are trying to conceive. As the woman gets older, her fertility starts to decline. This is why many women in their early age don’t have much trouble trying to conceive. However, as a woman’s biological clock ticks, so ticks her odds of conceiving. 

If you are getting pregnant, you don’t need to worry. Cited on
, it’s still possible for older women to get pregnant. She just needs to know her body well, especially when she is trying to conceive. Although, older women, specifically, in their 40s are advised to seek help from fertility specialists if they’ve been trying to conceive for more than 6 months in order for their doctor to conduct exams to determine her odds of conceiving. 

12 week ultrasound with C & 16 week ultrasound with E

I am lucky enough to have two lovely children and I fell pregnant quite quickly with both of them. C was conceived almost straight away and it only took us 3 months to get those two little lines with E. I do believe that my age played a huge factor in this. I was 19 when C was conceived and 21 with E. Chris is adamant that two is enough but if he were to change his mind in the future, I do hope that it wouldn't be too hard for us to conceive baby number 3!
