I know its 100% possible. But common to get pregnant at 40 without trying?

In brief: Not common
I wouldn't say common.
In normal 40 year old women, about 5% per month will get pregnant if they have intercourse at midcycle unprotected. Compare that to women in their 20's (20-25% per month) and at age 35 (10% per month).
