She had her youngest daughter at 50

My sister's ex-mother-in-law had her youngest daughter at 50! Perfectly healthy! That is why it is hard for me to give up hope.

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.

    Wow! Hope yet! I have regrets that I waited so long, and I try not to whine, because I already have beautiful children. But I would give anything to have another at age 47. I fear I am on an accelerated rosd to menopause, though. Ovulation appears to have come to a screeching halt! No mucous signs..
    Do you have any info on her? Was she still cycling? irregular? Did she know if she was in perimenopause? Did she do anything in particular regarding physical habits?

    Thanks Much for Posting!


  2. Marrci - Sorry, I don't have any further info to share about this story.

    I think that most women are in peri-menopause once they hit 40. They say it can take 10 years from the start of perimenopause till menopause hits.

    Not having mucous signs doesn't mean it's over. You may still have lots up inside, which you might find if you did cervical checks.

    Have you had any hormone testing, or using charting or OPKs to see if you truly are no longer ovulating?

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
