There are so many women who get naturally pregnant in their 43, 44, 45th year... and even over!

Just yesterday, my husband told me about a sister of an acquaintance.

She got pregnant for the first time at 48 years old, when she was thought to be in menopause.

Now that baby is a wonderful girl 12 years old!

I wanted to share some more OVER 45! stories.

I went to a new OB/Gyn this week.

He told me he just had a patient this week who is 48 years old, and is having her first baby!

He explained he has also delivered two babies this last month to woman over 40.

All natural... all no complications!!

I am starting TCM [Traditional Chinese Medicine] and acupuncture.

My TCM Dr. informed me that two women, both who had numerous IVF's [in vitro fertilization] with no pregnancy, are now both pregnant!!!

Both natural.

One of the woman had been trying for a year doing TCM and about to give up, when she was blessed with a baby!!!

If you've read my other posts recently, I spoke about a friend who delivers babies on an Indian reservation.

She has lots of 40- and 50- something patients, who definitely are not doing DE [donor egg]!

There are also women in religious communities of all kinds (Catholic, Jewish Orthodox, Hutterite) who defy the bio-clock statistics.

They just keep having babies until they can't anymore, because they choose not to use contraception.

They also aren't doing donor egg.

Image: Ready: Why Women Are Embracing The New Later Motherhood, by Elizabeth Gregory. Publisher: Basic Books (December 25, 2007)
Ready:Why Women Are Embracing The New Later Motherhood
by Elizabeth Gregory

-- Over the past three decades, skyrocketing numbers of women have chosen to start their families in their late thirties and early forties.

In 2005, ten times as many women had their first child between the ages of 35 and 39 as in 1975, and thirteen times as many had their first between 40 and 44.

Women now have the option to define for themselves when they're ready for family, rather than sticking to a schedule set by social convention.

As a society, however, we have yet to come to terms with the phenomenon of later motherhood, and women who decide it makes sense for them to delay pregnancy often find themselves confronted with alarmist warnings about the dangers of waiting too long.

In Ready, Elizabeth Gregory tracks the burgeoning trend of new later motherhood and demonstrates that for many women today, waiting for family works best.

She provides compelling evidence of the benefits of having children later -- by birth or by adoption.

I am 54 and have a 24 year old daughter, a 21 year old son, and a 9 year daughter... she was a BIG surprise!

While having a child later in life is difficult, I believe it's particularly challenging when you've already raised other children.

When the "surprise" baby comes along, you are not the same person/mother you were when the older ones were young and it's not easy to "go backwards".

Yes, in many ways, it is wonderful to have this surprise child but I would love to hear from other moms in similar situations.

I have a maternal great grandmother and a fraternal grandmother who both had children at 46 years old.

So I can't really rely on my age to protect me.

But I do have a good friend whose egg quality at 35 was questionable.

Fortunately, with assistance, she got her second child.

That moment between a mother and daughter, by jamocha76
I am just 50 and I have a son in college and a daughter in first grade.

I was married for 21 years, and have been single and reinventing for the past 6 years.

I am looking forward to seeing and hearing what all you other 50+ folks are up to.

I am in a college town, and feel pretty old around here most of the time.

I am too old to be cool - but too young to be finished.

This will be my first baby - at 45 years old.

I was five days late, and thought it was the onset of menopause. I was pretty upset about it.

I had an old pregnancy test, and got two lines on the results.

Well, I didn't have the instructions, so I wasn't sure if I was pregnant.

Found another test... it was positive, but expired.

Then I bought two more tests, they were both positive.

I have a doctor appointment on the sixth of next month, as I'm high risk.

I am concerned because I had a miscarriage when I was 40 years old, at 10 weeks.

I was just going to make an appointment for fertility testing, so I was pretty surprised when the tests came up positive.

I just can't bear thinking about another miscarriage.

My boyfriend isn't thrilled that I'm pregnant either.

I am trying to be positive, but I've only told my sister so far.

I told everyone last time, and it was really hard when I had the miscarriage.

I'm praying and hoping for the best.

I think this is my last chance.

Ladies, thought I'd share at this board...

I was in grocery store last month and at the coffee counter I can't help overhearing this woman (not a young woman at all) going on and on about baby this, baby that, we'll need this, we have that...

I start looking at her and really can't tell at all if she is pregnant. or newly pregnant. or what?!

She is gabbing to a friend quite loudly and saying stuff like, with our history, etc. and I start worrying for her - thinking oh no, she is newly pregnant with some treatment and she is feeling so confident... what if something doesn't go right - you know what I mean, just sort of wondering at her situation.

Well I get up to the counter and the lady serving the counter says to me, Quite a surprise for her...she used to work here and just found out she's 7 months pregnant!

I'm totally shocked and the lady goes on to tell me the rest - her and her husband tried for over 10 years and decided to give up, then she starts having these twisty feelings in her stomach, going thru her change of life she figures, goes and gets an ultrasound done and she is actually nearly 7 mos. pregnant!

Can you believe this!! ?? 

Well I nearly didn't, but on my way out, the pregnant lady comes walking in with her ultrasound pictures and I just have to stop and say something... so I do, she ends up showing me these pictures of a perfectly formed baby in the ultrasound and truly about 6 3/4 months pregnant!!

I say to her, Did you really not know you were pregnant? and she says, No, I've never been pregnant, didn't know what it would feel like, I've never been a slim person so didn't notice any extra weight going on either!!! she says, I wouldn't believed it myself if the ultrasound tech hadn't shown me the screen and these pictures!

Isn't this an AMAZING STORY!! Here she must of been in her late or mid-40's to be thinking she was going into the change of life and now she is sanding down a dresser set and gathering baby gear!!

God is Amazing and that story and happening has been a little boost for me over the course of the summer as my husband and I struggle along trying to conceive #2....
