Nowadays, many women do not attempt to start a family until their careers are started, and there are many more women over the age of 35 that are just becoming pregnant. I have several women who are over 45. If a woman has a regular period, she is most likely ovulating and should have no problem conceiving.

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 turned 47 in early Sept and will have a baby in mid sept!! I got pregnant on my ow,but it did take a year of "openness to life" when in the past I was pregnant within 2 months. I have felt fine. The only reason I'm more tired now then when I was prego with my first at age25, is that I have 11 other kids to take care of and drive around!! My baby is healthy and I feel well blessed!
