A woman, 47, whose menses stopped 2y ago, found she was 6m pregnant

A woman age 47 whose menses stopped 2 years prior & was on HRT [Hormone Replacement Therapy]. She had no symptoms of pregnancy. At a doctor's appointment, found out she was 6 months pregnant.

She and her husband had no genetic testing, as they found this to be a truly miraculous event. She gave birth to a healthy 5lb 6oz girl. Full term, and it was their first child and first pregnancy. They were told they would never have children.

She gave birth vaginally too, which her OB/gyn said defied all odds. In fact her OB/gyn said her whole story defied odds, she said this birth made her month!

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.
