Gave birth to a healthy baby at 46

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, April 29, 2009 | 2 comments

The 46 year old speaks very poor English, but her cousin happens to be the embryologist who works with my RE [Reproductive Endocrinologist] . Here is what I learned from both of them.

The woman has a 20 year old daughter and at age 45 was experiencing menopausal symptoms - hot flashes, mood swings, night sweats and insomnia. She was going to begin HRT [Hormone Replacement Therapy] when she decided to do a colon cleanse first.

She found a good cleanse at a health food store and some herbal tea and changed her diet, and increased her fiber and water consumption for a period of 30 days. She is an Amway distributor and also started taking some very high quality vitamins that they sell.

She said within the month, she felt 100% better and virtually all of her symptoms had disappeared. There was no need for her to start the HRT since she was feeling so much better.

Low and behold, in another two months, she discovered she was pregnant. One year ago in August, at the age of 46+, she gave birth to a healthy baby girl.

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.

    It's a very inspiring story! I hope and pray that I would also post the same thing soon. I am 46 and My husband and I are trying to be pregnant. Doctors have told us that it's impossible but my faith in God tells me everything is possible. We just won't give up!
    God bless you and your family!
    thanks for sharing this wonderful story!
