Hi ladies, I have you all beat!

I'm 48 years old with my first pregnancy, my husband is 48 years old as well.

I am 14 weeks pregnant, feeling great and either swimming 1500 or running a mile every other day.

All the first-round tests were normal, and my neonatologist does not recommend an amniocentesis.

We are blessed and feel very lucky.

It doesn't hurt to be extremely active all your life...

The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies
by Randine Lewis

-- Infertility affects one out of six couples today.

Dr. Lewis presents a groundbreaking alternative approach to infertility, explaining how she used traditional Chinese medicine to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children.

In Lewis's experience, women who have undergone three to six months of the dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture treatments become pregnant with no further effort.

Lewis intersperses her somewhat technical examination of the program with anecdotes about her patients, weaving in discussions on diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture, older women and problems related to infertility.

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 read these stories over and over as I tried to conceive - then I got pregnant naturally at 45 - having my baby at 46! thank you all for your inspiring stories - our bodies are not defined by a chart some doctor reads and decide who is or isn't having a child. My daughter is perfect and healthy and it's great being a mother at this age.

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!)
