I'm 44 & in my 5th week of pregnancy

Erica, 44, Belgium
About a year ago, I send a mail to 'mothers over 40', saying my husband and I would try to become pregnant. I'm 44 now. As it turned out, we didn't try it seriously till last month. And guess what? I'm in my 5th week of pregnancy now!

I just want to encourage those women who think it will be hard to conceive over 40.

This is my fourth pregnancy (second marriage), and although I was much younger when pregnant the first three times, it took longer to conceive than now. Bingo at the first hit!

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.
