Amy was 48 when she became pregnant; Tom was 45.

They had been married eight months.

They hadn’t counted on pregnancy, but they hadn't tried to prevent it.

It would be a long shot, they figured.

Then, in the summer of 2005, Amy had an unusual menstrual cycle.

She went to see her doctor, who had told her a couple of years earlier that she might be entering early menopause.

A few days after the appointment, the doctor called Amy at work and asked her if she could talk in privacy.

Then the doctor told her she was pregnant.

I said, 'Yeah, but are you sure?', Amy asked.

It felt like a miracle. How else could she explain it?

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.
