I got pregnant at 45.5 after being told by Dr. Sher that I had no chance.

I was very happy to send him a birth announcement.

Natural - NO Nothing... had given up TCM [Traditional Chinese Medicine] a year before.

Was still strict about my diet... no sugar, no dairy and nothing white. Still did wheat-grass a few times a week up until the beta [pregnancy test].





TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: So Close: Infertile and Addicted to Hope, by Tertia Loebenberg Albertyn. Publisher: Porcupine Press trading under DGR Writing + Research; 2nd edition edition (January 27, 2009)So Close: Infertile and Addicted to Hope
by Tertia Loebenberg Albertyn

-- Meet, marry and make a baby: That's how it's supposed to go, right? What happens when you start trying for a family ... and trying, and trying some more?

How far do you go to achieve your dream of having children? So Close is the heart wrenching, exhilarating, devastatingly funny story of Tertia Albertyn's battle with infertility. Tertia wanted a baby so badly she went through nine IVFs.

Most people give up after the third. I don't think I am being brave at all. I am just too terrified NOT to try again. In her worst nightmare she could never have imagined that making a baby would take her four years, each treatment bringing her and her husband Marko closer and closer to creating their family.

During Tertia's journey everything that can go wrong does go wrong. Until, finally, everything goes just right. Tertia is as hilarious as she is irrepressible, as approachable as she is knowledgeable.

If you are struggling with infertility, have triumphed over infertility or have felt empathy with someone who is going through this experience, you will find a friend in Tertia.

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.
