She got pregnant naturally at 43

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, August 24, 2007 | 0 comments

I happened to sit with a 49 year old woman and her 5 year old son. Making idle conversation, I found out that she got pregnant naturally the first month she tried to get pregnant at the age of 43.

Prior to that she had a booming career and had always been on birth control. Also, it was interesting to find out she is an MD. Ironically, her husband thought he was infertile, because tests in his previous marriage had determined that his very low sperm count was responsible for their infertility.

This was his first child. She said that this goes to show that you should never quit trying.... What works for one couple may not work for another couple.

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.
