She had an 'own egg' baby after IVF at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, July 25, 2007 | 0 comments

A friend of mine - I know this sounds fantastic - had an 'own egg' baby after IVF [in vitro fertilization] at 47. She had blocked tubes (she'd had a child way back at 20) and tried numerous IVF attempts - not sure how many exactly.

But after a miscarriage they decided to try one more time because they say that miscarriage is a sign that your body 'knows' how to get pregnant. And lo and behold, she was pregnant with her little boy.

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.
