I just turned 44 & I am pregnant

Thanks to Almighty God - I'm Pregnant!!!!!!! And thank you ladies for all of your help and support during this journey of trying to conceive. For those of you who are not familiar with me, I just turned 44. I have a beautiful 2 yr old son and a great husband. This is actually my 5th pregnancy. My last pregnancy being a year ago with a loss at 6 1/2 weeks right after my birthday. It has taken us 12 loooooong cycles or 10 months to conceive this one.

In July I started acupuncture and Chinese herbs at the Eastern Harmony clinic in Houston. This was after much frustration with TTC [trying to conceive] and no hope given by my Western OB/gyn. I would not have even known about it though, if it wasn't for you ladies that give so much wonderful information on this board.

So I guess I want to really thank all of you for your help and inspiration and for steering me toward this option of acupuncture. I can not prove that it worked ladies, but something certainly did, and I am convinced that it definitely put me back into a fertile state.

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.
