My name is Susan, and I am 46 years old.

We were not trying to get pregnant - this is a total surprise!

I just found out I am 6 weeks and 5 days pregnant.

This will be our third baby, but my fourth pregnancy.

I lost one baby due to miscarriage.

I am due with this baby on my birthday.

I will be 47 years old when the baby is born.

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 just got back from the doctors clinic today, and I'm over 7 weeks pregnant. I am 45 now, but I will be 46 and a half when I deliver. Natural conception . . . and I am still in shock!

    I found myself pregnant naturally at 46 for the first time in my life!! I was shocked, happy, and frightened. I heard so many negative statistics about advanced maternal age pregnancy outcomes. Yet I thought since Ibeat the odds getting pregnant (I read there was less than 1% chance at my age), maybe it is meant to be! Unfortunately it wasn't. Low progesterone from the start, began supplements. Ultrasounds showed slow fetal growth and hCG levels not doubling like they should. I was diagnosed with a missed miscarriage at 8 weeks (fetus stopped growing at 6 weeks) and opted for a D&C. I had a very difficult time accepting it. I still felt pregnant and had no bleeding at all. It's been two months and I'm still grieving the loss...but I'm still taking my prenatal vitamins. One never knows ;-) I like reading success stories. Please share more so I feel there is still hope for me.

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!)
