Before I had my retrieval on Monday, he told me that in his office, he has had a 45 year old (had twins), a 46 year old (single birth), and a 47 year old (single birth) - all with their own eggs, and he was very optimistic with me.

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.

    Hi Catherine,
    I was feeling low last night when I stumbled upon this site.
    Your words are so encouraging.
    A month ago I turned 45. I've never been married nor have had children. Having a family is my biggest wish and dream.
    I was very encouraged by your Dr.'s comments.I am terrified of negative obgyn's.
    I live in Los Angeles, and lately I have been thinking of reteiving egg(s??) and freezing it by itself or as am embryo, for that hopefully soon time, where I can start my family. I am wondering if you could help me by sharing your Dr's name and location? I would love to try this with a positive Dr.
    I would love to hear more about you.
    Thank you, and all the best to you.

    I was wondering if you could help me by sharing the name and location of your Dr. I am so tired of "negative" obgyn's and your Dr. seems, positive and wonderful.
    Thank you,
    All the best to you.
