why not me??

I've been wanting a baby for a long time now.  I'm 37 and my boyfriend and I are very sexually active. We do not use protection,  However, he does not finish inside me every time. My doctor says I am fertile and can become pregnant whether he finishes inside me or not. Has anyone here become pregnant from pre ejaculate....or am I just wishing for something that is just not going to happen?

You could always track your basil temp to find those 3 key days for him to follow through to the finish then lay there for 10-15 minutes before getting up.  Elevating your pelvis with a pillow will also help.  I did fertility treatments and that was part of my early regimen.

My husband and I use the withdrawal method - I have an eight year old girl and am 27 weeks pregnant with daughter number two. It definitely does happen!

Thank you for your replies. Maybe I should relax and not try so hard. I just feel nervous because I'm not getting any younger.  Congrats to all of you expecting!
