I'm 46 and have been trying for our first baby for about 6 months now. I now I'm an older first time mum, but up until now, it just hasn't been the right time to have a child. As each month goes by and no baby, the more upset and frustrated I get. I'm not sleeping well and all I can think about (apart from work) is why am I not yet pregnant?? Am I expecting too much to become a mum at my age? Am I just being too impatient and not worry about it? I'm thinking about going to my GP to see if they can do some sort of test to see if I'm still fertile, would this be a good idea? I need to do something, because as each month goes by, the worse I'm feeling!
