My husband and I TTC [trying to conceive] for nearly 4-1/2 years and were unsuccessful. At ages 46 and 42, we decided apply for adoption program within the county where we live. Before we completed adoption classes on 3/2004, we found out that we conceived 2/2004.


Unfortunately, we miscarried 5 weeks along. My OB/GYN [obstetrician/gynogologist] encouraged me by saying that at least we knew I had the capability to get pregnant. My younger sister had done research on estrogen dominance, of which I had many of the symptoms.

So, after the miscarriage, I started progesterone cream treatment, and two months later, we were pregnant! We had a healthy, full-term pregnancy and gave birth to a beautiful little girl, one month before I turned 43.

I have been very uncertain about having another child at my age (I'm 44 now), but after reading all of these wonderful and encouraging comments, maybe we will TTC this year!

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.
