I had my first baby when I was 43, she is now 2 ½ years old. We tried conceiving for 8 months before I fell pregnant.

All the doctors gave me a low chance for getting pregnant, because of my age. But I did not believe them, and refused their IVF treatment they suggested.

We decided to try for another baby recently, and I just found out I am 6 weeks pregnant.

In our first month of trying! I am overjoyed!

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.
