Thought they were menopausal, but were pregnant

Somebody who is 45 isn't by nature going to be as fertile as a 20-year-old, but we would definitely discuss it [getting pregnant] with her and do a health assessment.

I would be quite happy with it. I've seen women who thought they were menopausal, and hadn't realised they were pregnant. And they have had a perfectly normal pregnancy.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
