My father told me when he was young, one of his co-workers said his wife accidentally got pregnant at 51 years old.

It obviously was not donor egg, because that did not exist back then!

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Before Your Pregnancy: A 90-Day Guide for Couples on How to Prepare for a Healthy Conception, by Amy Ogle (Author), Lisa Mazzullo (Author), Mary D'Alton (Foreword). Publisher: Ballantine Books; Rev Upd edition (May 24, 2011)Before Your Pregnancy:
A 90-Day Guide for Couples on How to Prepare for a Healthy Conception
by Amy Ogle, Lisa Mazzullo, Mary D'Alton

-- Covering preconception and inter-conception (between-pregnancy) well-being for women and men, Amy Ogle and Lisa Mazzullo draw on new research from their complementary fields of expertise and reveal how good preconception health can lower the risk of pregnancy complications and improve lifelong health.

Why a ninety-day guide? It takes that long for sperm to mature, and at least that much time for the prospective mother to ensure that her body becomes pregnancy-ready.

In a warm, intelligent style, the authors address up-to-date topics such as age, heredity, vaccinations, supplements, and weight.

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.
