It never ceases to amaze me how determined some people have become that it is impossible to get pregnant with your own eggs over 45.

I personally know of two women who got pregnant with their own eggs at 50 and had healthy, normal babies.

One is the aunt of a friend and the other was an acquaintance of my mother.

And there is no way these were DE [donor egg] babies because they happened naturally, prior to the advent of any IVF procedures.

I realize that these pregnancies aren't common, but they do happen.

It makes me angry, too, to see people who are certain that any pregnancy over 45 with your own eggs isn't possible.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:

-- I love being a woman. To me it is a privilege and there is nothing more satisfying.

I appreciate being honoured and cherished for my femininity - for after all, I am the potential mother of the next generation.

I value my fertility, value the gift of being able to carry a child and become a mother. To me this is the very essence of being a women.

The children we bring into the world are small replicas of ourselves and our husbands; the pride and joy of grandfathers and grandmothers. We dream of being mothers and for most of us these dreams are realized naturally. For this is the Miracle of Life.

But - what about when that longed for baby never happens? When you realize that something is wrong and turn to professionals for help. Tests are done; treatments tried without success.

You traipse from one doctor to the next; resulting in more disappointment and fading hope. Your dream is shattered and the heartache is painful; almost unbearable. What is wrong with you? Is it your fault?

How are you lacking? Why? The questions are still desperately being asked.............but there are no answers. Slowly your conviction grows that your entirety as a woman is incomplete.

I am a woman and this is my story..............

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.
