I got pregnant for the 1st time at 45

At 45, after not using birth control for years, boy was I shocked when I got pregnant for the first time. I immediately rushed out and bought every book I could find on pregnancy in older women.

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.

    Hello - that's great news. Can you share any advice regarding your success, i.e., do you have a great diet, watch your alcohol intake, and do you smoke? Any lifestyle changes or habits that you think helped with your fertility? Many thanks.

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!)
