Absolutely not. I have a 4 year old that took a long time to concieve (conceive), and I started trying again at 35. It took us 6 months and some heavy duty fertility drugs, but I'm 4 1/2 months pregnant at 36 with my second.
I'm 39 and don't seem to have any problem getting pregnant. I have other challanges, and have no children yet, but am going to try for 2. You are definately not too old. I would go for a fertility work up now though, I am sure they can help you make it happen a little quicker. Good luck to you.
You are not too old but start trying now. I should have gone to a specialist way before I did. Just don't wait too late for help. It is better to be aggressive now than wait too long like me (I am now 40). 35 is a great age.
My grandmother got accidentally pregnant when she was 40! Two women in my office got pregnant at 39. And my good friend's sister got pregnant for the first time the first month she tried at 38 and pregnant with the second child again within 1 cycle at 40! Everyone's body is different and it's best that you beat the odds and start right away, but 35 is definitely not too old! (PS my OB/GYN told me once that there are women who have no problem getting pregnant at 43/44 years old...all depends on the person).
One more thing - since you took 4 years the first time, definitely do everything you can do to have it happen more quickly the second time....monitor your cycle, consult an RE, etc. Best of luck to you!
