Well, my then 43 year old sister-in-law just had her "fluke" baby with IVF [in vitro fertilization].
She had three attempts at IVF after miscarriages: a set of twins at 11 weeks, and two singletons over a period of 18 months.
These three attempts resulted in two confirmed pregnancies, one set of twins, and a singleton.
So of 4 embryos transferred all up they resulted in 3 babies, unfortunately only one live birth, her now 16 week old daughter. She was born in August.
My sister-in-law had her six week check - and her RE [reproductive endocrinologist] and OB [obstetrician] said don't worry about contraception at all.
Well she didn't, and is now 4.5 weeks pregnant. It's only her second postpartum cycle after weaning her 16 week old due to "failure to thrive".
She found out on her 44th birthday.... Happy Birthday!!! She is happy, of course!!
The miscarriage rate is quite high but the fertilization is still working, just got to get the good egg. So that’s quite a few flukes wouldn't you say!!
