Iam 44 years old and 5 weeks pregnant. I have consisyent back cramps an pulling in my abdomen. Also slight yellowish discharge. Is this normal?

Needs examination: At five weeks just station the pregnancy is so small it's unlikely to be contributing to back pain. Some vaginal discharge in pregnancy can be normal. Some vaginal discharge could indicate infection. At age 44 this is a high-risk pregnancy. I highly recommend seeing a doctor soon. ...Read more

What is right time to get pregnant? I am 25+ years old

There is no right: Or wrong time, only when you are ready mentally and physically and how many children you want.

Am 35 years old w/30-35 days cycle, how can I easily get pregnant?

Just try. Don't wait: While getting pregnant at 35 is more difficult that at 25, the process is the same. Be in the same place and time with your partner during your most fertile time period. For you that period is from as early as roughly day 12 to day 21 of your cycle. This is because of your wide range of menstrual cycles. Using an ovulation predictor kit can narrow the range. Try for 3-6 mo. If not preg get help. ...Read more
