A 46-year-old woman in her eighth month of pregnancy took part in a marathon recently held in Boston (the USA).

She covered 42 km within seven hours.

New York resident April Noan, who is to become 47 years old in several weeks, said her doctors and organizers of the marathon allowed her to participate in the heat.

What is more interesting, the woman does not understand, why people make so much fuss about her deed?

Her opinion is, pregnancy is not a disease. Women in past centuries treated pregnancy especially seriously only when it came to its end.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:

by Holly Finn

-- I’m not over 40 and childless for no reason, writes Holly Finn. I smoked in my twenties. I preferred red wine to sparkling water. I ate too much milk chocolate. I liked limericks. I know all the wrong I’ve done. But also, more than any of that, I’ve always longed for children.

Yet there she was: successful, social, mostly happy, and not a mother. Knowing that her chances of becoming pregnant naturally were quickly fading, Finn decided to gamble: she—like some 85,000 other women in the U.S. each year—would attempt in vitro fertilization.

Almost three years later, she’s still trying, and in the process has become an accidental pioneer (and, at times, a guinea pig) in the ever-evolving science of IVF.

Length: 50 pages

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.
