Pregnant at 40: was it very difficult? Any tips regarding fertility treatments?

I just had a baby at 44. In many ways it was easier than my baby at 38. Get active if not already, stay active, eat well, drink lots of water, take prenatal vitamins, all the basics - you’ll be fine. I hope all goes well.

I had my first at 39 and second at 43. Both were after many years of fertility treatment. If you have tried for over 6 months at 40, it is time to book an appointment with a reproductive endocrinologist. All REs and clinics are not equal. Before you pick one, check out their IVF success ratings at SART (Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology). Your RE will do some tests (bloodwork to check your egg reserve and antral follicle count to see your potential to produce eggs monthly and also some tests to make sure your tubes are open and there are no physical issues preventing conception). Depending on the outcome of those tests and assuming you want to get pregnant with your OE (own eggs), I highly recommend skipping the early phase treatments and jumping straight to IVF. It can take multiple cycles and there is reset time in between. I finally got pregnant after 10 years of treatment on IVF cycle 8, I think. I lost count. My case was very challenging and only a small percent of women have as difficult a time as I did. At the same time, fertility rapidly declined after mid-30s, so if I were you I would not delay and proceed soon. Good luck and baby dust. Fertility treatment is a tough road. But SO worth it.

It’s all unique. Statistically it is not easy despite anecdotes. I was not able to get pregnant at 40 or later and stopped after 6 IUIs and 1 IVF. Ran out of money.
