I'm 44 years old, and started trying for a child just after my 42nd birthday.

First attempt, I got pregnant right away but had severe problems, baby not well (dying and with chromosomal problems).

So I had to terminate at 13 weeks. Then I got pregnant again a few months after, but I miscarried at 12 weeks.

Then, no success.

I was just about to give up, move on, etc - so I had a holiday, chilled out a bit, tried to stop it taking too much hold on my life.

Shock of my life last week after my holiday - I was feeling really strange, went off alcohol, sore boobs, funny feelings, so bought a HPT [home pregnancy test] and I'm pregnant (naturally!!!!).

Was in shock - so I'm now sat at home trying not to worry or even move too much!

Did blood test on Monday - shows very high HCG [human chorionic gonadotropin] levels, did another on Wednesday and now waiting for results.

Very worried (on doctor's computer screen - it said ABNORMAL HCG levels!), but definitely pregnant.

So yes - 43/44 years old CAN succeed in pregnancy, and I'm hoping it will go to full term!

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.
