I am 39 also, and sometimes it depends on the doctor. My RE was positive and encouraging. I do not have fertility issues, however, my partner travels a lot, and as a result we froze his sperm. I have not had any testing done, however, the doctor wants to try IUI naturally. She does not want to use clomid for fear of multiples. She told me that if i were to have multiples she would encourage reduction. She never made me feel old. Im pretty sure the REs see women much older than us with far worse conditions. There are women who have conceived and had babies after cancer, who have MS, and like me have lupus. I am a natural worrier. I worry about everything and everyone. Additionally, i used to care too much about what people think. Not anymore. I rebuke those who speak negativity to me about my wish and dream. I am sorry, but I do not want to be like my aunt who never had kids. The bottom line is you keep trying until you cannot try anymore. Do not give up on trying to conceive naturally. Doctors are not GOD. They may know medicine, but, you know your body. Trust yourself, and keep trying. I will not give up at 39. I do not want to be 44 wondering why I gave up at 39. Your egg production drops after the age of 40, that means your egg production from 35-40 is about the same. I got pregnant at 37. You have to believe, and if you are not happy with your doctors, find one that will help you, and not discourage you. I wish you well.

Miss my baby girl, Hailey rose everyday. I will never give up.
Pregnant again, due in July. Dear God, I leave it in your hands. I feel so blessed.
