Golden egg - twins at 50

My doctor is in her 50's, has six year old twins, naturally.

She wasn't even trying to conceive.

She said she ovulated the day before her period.

She also said that at our age, we can spit out eggs at random, and not even show we ovulated on our charts.

She has seen it happen several times.
A really hot night of "baby dancing" can cause us to ovulate.

Don't give up.

I would continue with acupuncture and herbs, and one of these times you will catch the golden egg.

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.

    Thank you for the positive & hopeful story.

    I am a little surprised though... "She also said that at our age, we can spit out eggs at random..." .... Really? Is there any literature I can read with regards to this please.

    Thank you

    This title is a bit misleading, she conceived when she was 43. 43 is still an inspiration. I love the natural stories. They are the only ones I read on this site. Regarding ovulation, it can happen any time especially in your 40s. I've tried monitoring my cycle with scientific methods and found that only God decides because He Is The Creator. Just ask God and trust in His perfect timing for your family.
