I like to temp. It helps you figure out if and when you ovulated and when you should get your period (after you figure out your normal luteal phase). Also you can tell if you're pregnant when the temps stay up instead of falling. I was taking a baby aspirin and prenatal vitamin most every day. I was getting a little lax lately cause I was starting to give up hope. Last pregnancy, I also used preseed. Sending you loads of baby dust!
I conceived first try with my 2 year old. Also, conceived first try again and im currently a little over 12 weeks pregnant. Im 39 years old and will give birth a month before my 40th b-day.
With the currently pregnancy, I didn't use an ovulation kit, but looked for the ewcm and bed on that day. That was all it took. However, im very healthy. When I conceived I walked everyday, took vitamins. Also, I don't smoke and don't drink any caffeine whatsoever. I did drink alcohol a week before conceiving and the day of, then haven't had any since.
Also, I do not take any medicine. Very rarely acedamenifine (spelling?).
I don't want to scare you but conceiving at 44 is very rare. It can happen but no matter what you try it probably won't happen naturally. I am 44 with a 2.5 years old and I gave up trying for #2 (had a miscarriage at 42 last year).
Keep an eye on your ovulation period and have sex every second day. Healthy diet and habits are very important. I'm 42 and 7 weeks pregnant. It took me 3 months trying to get pregnant. A friend of mine had her 1st at 43 and 2nd at 45 both naturally. If you're trying for a while and it's not happening don't waste time and start to think about IVF.
