All these stories are keeping me inspired. I am 45 and pregnant for the second time in 25 years; total surprise, I really still don’t believe it.

Took no precautions; just assumed it could not happen after 10 years of undiagnosed endometriosis, and according to my new doctor, a very scarred uterus. Was very scared about Downs, but it seems healthy children can be born at this age. You have given me 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.
