Baby at 45, with my own egg

Photo credit: bonesdogI had my baby at 45, my own egg. Went to the Centre for Human Reproduction with Dr. Karande.

Followed cycle with ultrasound, and blood-work, had only one folly, did back to back IUI's [intrauterine insemination], HCG [human chorionic gonadotrophin] trigger shot, and will never forget the call from the nurse, "you have a beta found positive!"

RE [reproductive endocrinologist] doctor was in disbelief, but thrilled for us!!!
It does happen, don't give up!!!

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.

    LOVE this story, I get so much pleasure out of reading these stories, and gives me faith. I have had my first daughter at 41.5 with IVF and currently about to start my 4th IVF ( had one miscarriage, 2 non pregnancies) and I come here to check regularly to give me faith. I am 43.5 and ready for my 2nd baby. Twins would be awesome!
