The nurse doing my u/s was 'very' pregnant at 45

The nurse doing my u/s [ultrasound] was 'very' pregnant. We were chatting as she did the ultrasound and I was saying playing (seriously though) about how I want to be just like her.

She said that this was a total surprise and never expected it at her age because she's old. I responded saying she isn't 'that' old - she said she is 45 and not an early 45 (oh crap, or was it 46) - she went on to say her first was an IVF [in vitro fertilization] baby so with her now husband she never thought of using birth control because they never thought it would happen.

She was concerned at first working in an infertility office, but she has discovered that she's been more of an inspiration than it being negative.

So, just some more confirmation showing that it can and does happen - and sometimes - doctors are wrong.

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.
