I'm sitting here with my DS - he's only 8 weeks old and I'm completely smitten and amazed we finally got there. I'm 44 and never imagined being a first time mum at this age. But loving it. Despite fatigue, feeling much older than the other ladies in my NCT and neighbourhood wandering around with their babies. Our clinic emailed to ask if we wanted to store DH sperm for another year - so got me thinking. I asked just speculatively if the donor might consider donating again. At first she said no, not for a while, and then came back and said yes, she'd do it, but wants to do it now before she starts new job. We could use her egg and DH sperm to make an embryo/s and freeze them until I'm ready to cycle and transfer. If I'm 44 now and recovering from a c section, I guess I cant be pregnant for another year or so?? In which case do I need to wait till after Sept to cycle and I'll be 45 then, and nearing 46 before any baby is born (assuming it works of course - could take multiple attempts or simply fail). Not sure what my question is really except looking to see if anyone else had 2 DE children so late and what your experiences are - I'm due to talk this over with DH this weekend - I'm excited so tend to think I'll want to go ahead but is it going to be more than I can cope with or will it spoil my time with my first born if I'm too knackered to cope! sorry for ramble - baby brain and not a lot of sleep here with a 2m old baby! I'm hoping this doesnt offend ladies still trying for their first - its not like I have a stressful problem here, please forgive me if this post is in the wrong place or lands in the wrong spot.
