Like all bloggers, I get questions emailed to me as though I’m terribly wise. Because this is far from the truth, I thought I would crowdsource an answer for one of the folks with a question. (Maybe Wednesdays will become crowdsource day on Mihow.com?)
A very nice woman I’ll call “Stephanie” writes (slightly edited):
I was wondering if you could help me with something. I’m 36 years old and my husband and I have been trying to conceive our first child. We have been trying for 5 months and so far nothing. I thought I was pregnant twice only to get my period early and I’m very regular. TMI?
Anyway, how long did it take you to get pregnant? I’m worried I missed my opportunity. DH and I want a baby so bad but I feel like it will never happen.
I wrote “Stephanie” back personally. But I don’t feel that I’m a very good person to ask this of because I’ve only ever been pregnant once and I was 32 at the time. For us, it was really easy. I imagine that when/if we try again, now that I’m 35, we may not have such an easy time of it. Who knows.
Can you help her?
