I had both of my kids older than that. :>). I think more and more women are getting pregnant later with more receiving higher education and starting careers and finding their significant others later. That was the case with me. I know that they say it is 'harder to get pregnant' and for some it is and for others it isn't. I did have trouble with my first pregnancy. It took a couple of years and I was scheduled to begin IVF. Ironically, on the day I was to start I got a positive pregnancy test from trying naturally. And my second son was conceived 5 months after my first was born. I would say this. The closer you get to 40, the more urgent it does become. If you are trying and don't get pregnant in a year at 35, go to a fertility doctor. If you are 38 and trying, wait only 6 months. If you are 39, go right away. Just to be safe. But MANY women do get pregnant in their late 30's without incident. My first pregnancy was a little rough with pregnancy hypertension but I'd have had that anyway as I have familial hypertension. How long have you been trying?
