Here's a bit of a story:

While attending a conference in Vancouver a few years ago, I met a woman who had been born when her mother was 47 years old.

The woman I met was in her 50's, so this was long before DE [donor eggs]!

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
pixelInfertility Survival Handbook
by Elizabeth Swire-Falker
-- After seven years of tests and more tests, treatments and more treatments, Elizabeth Swire-Falker understands what it means to struggle with infertility.

In this frank, reassuring, and thoroughly researched handbook, she shares her own personal experience and offers insight into what challenges to expect along the way-from getting support to finding the right doctor to dealing with insurance.

She gave up her career in the process when she found she couldn't struggle with infertility and maintain a high-powered job at the same time.

The years were filled with injections and blood tests and hormones and in vitro fertilizations, implantations, and miscarriages, and return trips to the assisted reproductive technology lab.

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.
