She conceived naturally at 44

She said that when she was in her 30’s, she got married and they decided to try for kids. Nothing was happening for a couple of years so they started infertility treatments. She said she tried for year after year. She had many of the different forms of IVF [in vitro fertilization] with no success. She said she used hormones to such an extent to produce eggs that her body began to suffer and she lost some of her hair and teeth (I had no idea this was a side effect!)

Anyway, they finally decided to adopt at 40 and were matched with a lady who was letting them adopt. Two months before the baby's birth, her husband asked for a divorce! She said she decided that she would never have kids and her clients would be her 'children' that she nurtured.

She began dating an old professor and guess what.... She conceived naturally at 44 her now 12 year old daughter!

I wanted to add that this was a surprise pregnancy. When she told the father, he wanted her to abort, which obviously was not what she wanted, considering her years of trying. To this day he has nothing to do with his daughter and she is just beautiful.

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.
