Hands on Belly - Stock Photo Credit: bikindemI am 44 now, was 43 when I found out I was pregnant and I am due in 7 weeks. Things are good, and have had no problems.

Funny thing is I had horrible pregnancy with my last three, placenta previa, preclampsia. Nothing this time, he is small, but all my kids were.

I was like you, the doctors freaked me out. I had my ultrasounds, and did what they told me. I did not get a amnio, and things are great.

I am 32 weeks now, and have a very active baby. Don’t worry, they say bad things but they told me the chances of Down Syndrome was 1-10. Well, my test came back 1-1000, I have eggs of a 33 year old.

Look at all the women now that have babies that are older and are fine.

Hannah's Hope: Seeking God's Heart in the Midst of Infertility, Miscarriage, and Adoption LossHannah's Hope: Seeking God's Heart in the Midst of In-fertility, Miscarriage, and Adoption Loss
-- In this warm and well-researched guide, author and caregiver Barbara Deane deals comprehensively with the many challenges of caring for an aging parent or relative. By combining insights gleaned from her own experiences, interviews with experts, testimonial from other struggling caregivers, and helpful reference lists, Deane furnishes the emotional support and practical advice caregivers need to provide good care-and keep from burning out in the process.

Jennifer Saake and her husband, Rick, are the founders of Hannah's Prayer Ministries (www.hannah.org), a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help women who are in-fertile or have suffered pregnancy or adoption loss. Since their in-fertility battle began in 1992, the Saakes have lost ten children via pregnancy losses and failed adoption attempts and have been blessed with two living miracles.

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.
