IVF at 44, pregnant with my own eggs

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, January 19, 2010 | 1 comments

I am in my 5th attempt at IVF at age 44 with my own eggs. I got pregnant first time and miscarried after 3 months. This attempt I transferred 3 embryos (2 8-cell and 1 7-cell) and am pregnant. Doctor said numbers are very good.

I am remaining optimistic -- I go back on Friday for another blood test. You just never know. Trying with your own can and will work for some people.

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.

    Great to hear! I just turned 44, did an IVF cycle and it came out Negative - am contemplating whether to try again. Thanks for your post.

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
