She had 10 children, and she also had one at 44... all natural..

I even mentioned this to my RE [reproductive Endocrinologist] today and he said mostly genetic background (strong past genes) and that it can very well happen!!

Any of your have parents, grandparents, great-grandparents having kids late?

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
In-fertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's PerspectiveIn-fertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's Perspective
-- Roy Sokol offers men a chance to be heard and women a rare opportunity to view the struggle with in-fertility from a male perspective.

In-fertility and Adoption: A Husband and Father's Perspective brings to life the frustration, anger, humor, heartbreak, and sense of helplessness and a mental philosophy learned in Marine Corps training that helps in overcoming the psychological barriers.
 

While miracles in technology have brought joy to new families, those very advances have placed many couples into a spiraling cycle of hope and heartbreak. 

One failed attempt may lead to another, but how do you give up when there is always another doctor, another procedure holding the possibility of your dream for a family?

Roy Sokol has captured the emotional turmoil he and his wife, Elizabeth, endured as they tried to conceive, the years their lives were put on hold, and the excruciating sense of loss and finally great happiness.
 

He writes too of the couple's journey through the bewildering world of adoption - a path to parenthood fraught with financial, legal, and emotional risks of its own.

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.
