My daughter was born, perfect & healthy at 45y

Here's a story you can add to your web site if you want, and it happened to yours truly:

I went to a specialist in the summer of 2003, because I was 44 and TTC [trying to conceive] (my first) for 6 months. He tested my FSH [follicle stimulateing hormone] (I don't even remember what it was, I was so clueless about this stuff back then) asked me to start charting.

I went back in a month and he said the chart looked perfect, but that at my age there was nothing he could do for me unless I wanted donor eggs. The next month I just charted and tried and I got pregnant.

In May of 2004 my daughter was born, perfect and healthy. I had a natural birth, by the way, which was awesome. I am now 46 and TTC my second child. I miscarried in August of 2005, but I believe I will get pregnant again and carry to term.

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.
