I am 45 years old, and just found out I am pregnant (approximately 6 weeks along).

I have an only, a vivacious, spunky 6 year old girl.

I struggled for the past six years to have another baby, because my first delivery was horrendous.

Long story short, I developed eclampsia after the delivery (emergency c-section) and almost stroked three days later.

My doctor was horrible, my husband can't even mention her name without using the word malpractice, but we won't go there.

Anyway you can only imagine the mental trauma I experienced.

I went to seek professional help, while this did cure me for a while, I still longed for my child to have a sibling.

My daughter is such a nurturing little girl, and what an amazing big sister she would be.

I decided to let fate take over. We enjoyed the usual once a week sex, (sorry guys, this was all I could muster), but viola... it happened!

I am so scared, my husband is not so happy, and I do feel a bit like a freak show, but it is not about me.

After what I went through, and with the best high risk doctors I can find, I can do this and we are going forward.

I wish you all the best through your journey.

I'll be 45 years old in March.

I am eight weeks pregnant with my first child and I feel so blessed and happy.

I have not had any morning sickness so far. Just some random nausea here and there.

I am so tired all the time, I’d sleep anytime if I had the chance.

But I wouldn’t change them for the world, knowing that my little jewel is growing each day inside of me.

Exciting, isn't it?

The Baby Business: How Money, Science, and Politics Drive the Commerce of Conception, by Debora L. Spar. Publisher: Harvard Business Review Press; 1 edition (February 14, 2006)The Baby Business: How Money, Science, and Politics Drive the Commerce of Conception
by Debora L. Spar

-- Despite legislation that claims to prohibit it, there is a thriving market for babies spreading across the globe.

Fueled by rapid advances in reproductive medicine and the desperate desires of millions of would-be parents, the acquisition of children—whether through donated eggs, rented wombs, or cross-border adoption — has become a multi-billion dollar industry that has left science, law, ethics, and commerce deeply at odds.

In The Baby Business, Debora Spar argues that it is time to acknowledge the commercial truth about reproduction and to establish a standard that governs its transactions.

In this fascinating behind-the-scenes account, she combines pioneering research and interviews with the industry’s top reproductive scientists and trailblazers to provide a first glimpse at how the industry works: who the baby-makers are, who makes money, how prices are set, and what defines the clientele.

Fascinating stories illustrate the inner workings of market segments--including stem cell research, surrogacy, egg swapping, "designer babies," adoption, and human cloning -- as Spar explores the moral and legal challenges that industry players must address.

The first purely commercial look at an industry that deals in humanity’s most intimate issues, this book challenges us to consider the financial promise and ethical perils we’ll face as the baby business moves inevitably forward.

I went to the doctor on Tuesday, and they confirmed that I am definitely pregnant.

I'll be six weeks tomorrow, and I will be 46 years old when I deliver this baby.

I told my parents and my sister, but that will be all for now.

I miscarried last time and had already told everyone.

My boyfriend seems to be a bit better about things. I think it'll change when I start to show.

Let me know how things are going for you...
I think as soon as we stopped trying - I got pregnant!

I am another 45 year-old mother to-be, and will be almost 46 1/2 years old when the baby is born in late summer.

No interventions, and one miscarriage at 44 years old, after six weeks.

My Down's risk was 1 in 18 before my nuchal translucency/blood test.

It was thankfully decreased to 1 in 185 afterwards.

I'm feeling very thankful, and will get another ultrasound, and probably an amnio at 18 weeks.

Love hearing other 45 and over stories!

The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation: A Compassionate and Comprehensive Guide for All Parents-to-Be, by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napoletano. Publisher: Demos Health; 1 edition (May 15, 2012)The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation:
A Compassionate and Comprehensive Guide for All Parents-to-Be
by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napoletano

-- In their search for alternative means for building a family, those who face infertility turn to the nearly 500 reproductive specialty clinics across the United States.

While egg donors enter into the picture for a variety of reasons, every reason has the same desired result: a family to call one’s own.

Same-sex and single-by-choice parents are more prevalent than ever in the fertility industry, and there is no definitive, up-to-date guide to help families of all types approach egg donation, especially these niche groups. Resources are fragmented, true regardless of the family structure.

The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation is the first how-to-handbook that helps families of all types navigate the less talked about but widely practiced egg donor landscape with a warm and friendly tone, giving those in search of a different kind of stork the answers and information they need as they begin to research family-building options.

I am 44 years old and 30 weeks and 2 days pregnant with my first child, a little boy. I will be 45 years old when he is born.

I was not my intention to do it this late, but I did not meet my husband until age 39 and we married at age 41 (he was 10 days shy of his 44th birthday).

We decided to wait a year before trying to conceive just to settle in as a married couple, get to know each other, and to save enough to get a house.

After that we tried and were unsuccessful for 1 1/2 years. I was tested and he was tested. My tests came back normal, but his sperm count results were slightly low.

Although he has daughter (now 20 years old) from a previous marriage, they think it was due to a large varicose vein on one of his testicles - plus the blood pressure meds he is now taking.

His doctor wanted to do surgery but we said no, and decided that if God did not give us a baby of our own within the next few months then we would just adopt.

We did not want to do IVF [in vitro fertilization] since it is so costly (neither of our insurances covers it). Plus we have moral issues with it.

In April of 2006 I discovered I was pregnant. We were overjoyed and told everyone. Then at the end of the eighth week I started spotting.

I ended up having a miscarriage at week nine due to a blighted ovum, which was one of the most painful things (more emotional than physical) I have ever experienced in my adult life.

The most painful was having to tell everyone since we told everyone we knew about the pregnancy.

Some were sympathetic and supportive but others said some well meaning but insensitive things, and I was often reminded on my age and told not to get my hopes up to high.

One woman even had the audacity to say "I told you so". I did not have a D+C, and bled for 2 1/2 weeks.

After that I went through two dry weeks and had another very strange, very heavy 3 day period.

Then in August 2006, I found out I was pregnant again. Since I was already seven weeks along by the time I got to the Ob/gyn it must have happened in July which was less than 2 months after the miscarriage.

Now we are at 7.5 months and, according to the ultrasound, the baby is perfectly good and healthy. All other tests checked out normal also.

I would love to do a home birth but hubby is against it, so we have just finished Bradley natural birth classes, have turned in a birth plan.

If all goes well and there are no complications, we plan to do a hospital birth au natural - with no drugs.

I am 48 years old, and just found out I am pregnant.

I had a baby at 42 years old, which I felt I was a dinosaur then.

Wow - do I feel like a dinosaur now!!

The doctor had told me she didn't know any woman, over 44 years old, who had conceived on her own.

Well, I told her to change the story to over 48 years old!

Count me into the over 45 club... I'll be less than one week short of 46 years old, when my little girl is due in May.

We weren't trying to conceive, and this was quite a shock!

No interventions, only the surprise of it not being in menopause and being positive pregnancy.

Opted out of all the tests except amnio. I did have the amnio. Positive for T21 (downs).

So far no other issues. Being "old" gets me an ultrasound every month. Really great pregnancy so far.

This is my sixth child, and this child will be 11 months younger than my first grandchild.

When I went in for my first OB appointment my doctor told me there were other patients my age in there.

I had asked if I was the oldest - he said "No way!"

That made me feel a little better... - Maria
