This is how you can mess up, and find yourself pregnant over 50 years old.

That's EXACTLY what happened to the mother of a friend of mine many years ago.

She was having herself a casual little fling with a man she'd just met in the Bahamas.

She had a wonderful vacation, an enjoyable dalliance with a lovely man, and returned to real life back home.

She thought she was post-menopausal, done with birth control and wham!

She found herself pregnant at 53 years old!

She had a beautiful baby boy, and he is the delight of her life!

The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies
by Randine Lewis

-- Infertility affects one out of six couples today.

Dr. Lewis presents a groundbreaking alternative approach to infertility, explaining how she used traditional Chinese medicine to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children.

In Lewis's experience, women who have undergone three to six months of the dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture treatments become pregnant with no further effort.

Lewis intersperses her somewhat technical examination of the program with anecdotes about her patients, weaving in discussions on diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture, older women and problems related to infertility.

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.

    I am 53 now and I have four older children, ages 18, 13, 8 and 3, the last of which was born 6 months after my husband died. I found love again and got married and we wanted more kids because my oldest is gone so we got pregnant. naturally. I am expecting twins, a girl and a boy, in feb. 2008 and I am feeling great but I hope that I can handle two babies this late in my life!

  2. How wonderful - congratulations! I hope you will come back after your babies are born and tell us how it went, and how you are managing twins.
