At 47y, my chances were better without intervention

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, January 22, 2007 | 0 comments

I'm glad you're getting so much encouragement from the knowledgeable women here. My RE [Reproductive Endocrinologist] took a different approach from yours. She said there was every reason to believe that I could get pregnant with my husband's sperm, and that at 47 years old, my chances were much better without her intervention.

She strongly encouraged us to keep trying, and referred us to a nutritionist and acupuncturist as supports for our efforts. She herself is a few months short of my age, and she runs a positive, supportive, and honest practice, so that may account for the her approach to us.

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.
