I figure this is a safe place to post this. Does anyone else have a biological clock that isn't just ticking, it is ticking LOUDLY?! I don't dare share this with friends IRL because most would look at me like I'm nuts for wanting more dc. I've always had a thing with age/getting older (I refused to celebrate my 4th bday and pretty much every bday from then on). I'm only on my second cycle postpartum but oh boy, do I feel anxious! Every month that goes by brings me closer to 37 which brings me closer to 40 which makes me want to panic!!!

OK, that felt good to get off my chest.

One factor that makes this struggle even worse is that I have only one fallopian tube so if I ovulate every other side that means I have 6 chances/year to conceive (and yes, I know it "can" happen where a woman ovulates on the opposite side...I could also buy a lottery ticket and win the jackpot. Not putting my hope in things like that.).

Anyone feel this way?

I didn't at 36. At 36 I met a woman who said she was almost 40. I asked how old she was specifically and she said 36. I said we are 36, not almost 40.

But now, I am 39 next month. That really is almost 40.

So, you have a good amount of time left. Me, I have 1 foot in the grave. Thanks for reminding me.

Oh GREAT - thanks farmerswife for reminding me that I ALREADY turned 39 which makes me OLDER than you. I, too, have one foot in the grave!!!

But to the original poster - I don't think you are crazy for hearing your clock tick so loudly. LOL Some people just know they aren't done having children. Why is 40 the magical number??? Many women have children well into their 40's.

I will be 36 next weekend. 36 and pregnant with number nine. My clock is getting turned off after this one. I am done. However, at our "advanced maternal age" (LMAO) we still have plenty of good years ahead of us. My gmother had her last at 42 and her sister had her last at 45.

Oh, I love the Advance Maternal Age tag. Whatever. I have a handful of friends who had their lasts in their 40s. The one is the smartest that mom ever had!

LOL!

I am 35 and got the 'advanced maternal age label' at my first doctor appointment with this pregnancy.

My sister did not even start having kids until she was 37...Why the labels, ya know? LOL

My MW is pg with her third and due the end of this month, she's 36. We laugh all the time about Advanced Maternal Age, got old lady walker jokes and all. You know it's easier to carry a newborn in your Hover-round.

I absolutely understand the fear of aging. I cried when I turned 18. Sobs. I have gotten much better about it and turning 30 was no biggie this last January. I do hear the "tick" though, but it is still faint.

I don't feel like I'm going on 33 and I don't look it either and I definitely don't look like I've had 5 kids! Yea I hear it ticking but I think it's broken, can't get pregnant and when I do, I end up losing it.
