When women are older and start skipping a few periods, it’s only natural to assume menopause is knocking on the door.

Even though the chances of women falling pregnant naturally over 40 are less, it doesn’t mean that it can’t happen – even if you’ve stopped getting your period.

There are so many women who get naturally pregnant in their 43, 44, 45th year... and even older than that!

Just yesterday, my husband told me about a sister of one of his acquaintances.

She got pregnant for the very first time at 48 years old, when she was thought to be in menopause.

Now that baby is a wonderful girl 12 years old!

You just never know...

45 and Pregnant: How I Conceived and Delivered Naturally
by Liz Angeles

-- A three-part journey that begins with a 44-year-old single woman with no prospects, leading quickly to a middle-aged pregnancy.

Her fears and worries about childbirth with her historically low pain threshold were later transformed by her decision to have a home water birth with no drugs and her success story that involved no complications.

Beginning with a serendipitous love story that led to the sudden pregnancy and concluding with the family events that transpired beyond the delivery, Liz Angeles provides a plethora of information for anyone considering a natural birth.

Her comical memoir spanning a 5-year period includes many healthy pregnancy tips and natural parenting options.

Her revealing details and personal choices promise to educate, entertain and inspire.

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.

    I am 43yrs and trying to conceive. Had a pregnance in my early teens and i did an abortion. I had a miscarriage in my early 30s. I had fibroids removed at age 35yrs. I never tried conceive after al that coz i felt my body had just gone through alot. Now at 43yrs am crazy about wanting a baby, am currently taking fertil aid supplements. Is there hope for natural pregnancy for me?

  3. There are a few tests your dr could do that would help you better understand your fertility, and the condition of your ovaries, tubes and uterus.

    However, our bodies are marvelous things and often recover eventually from earlier assaults to our system. So I would think that until you know for a fact otherwise, there is always hope!

    I think I may be pregnant, 5weeks, but I'm too scared to do a test as I have had 3 miscarriages in the last 2 years. When should I visit my gynae?

  5. It is usually best to see your dr as soon as you suspect you are pregnant. Have you tried a home pregnancy test yet?

    To anonymous at 43 trying to get pregnant - from Jan 9 -YES it is more than possible! I got pregnant at 43 and gave birth to my first and only child at 44. I got pregnant naturally with no fertility treatments. My obgyn gave me very good advice: #1. Do not stress - when you stress - your body won't always release an egg - goes back to our prehistoric times. #2. Take Precare PRE-Conception vitamins- as these give you the right amount of vitamins & minerals for healthy conception. #3. order Ovuquick the best ovulation kit. You can get it over the counter but your pharmacist needs to order it as they don't keep them on the shelf. By the 9 day one as it is a better deal then the 5 day one. A good natural and safe supplement for fertility is Organic Maca. An excellent brand is Royal Maca for women. Lastly, do not listen to any non medical people giving you bleak odds! Good Luck!

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!)
