Spontaneous twins at 54!

I just had to share what my new OBGYN told me last week.

I told her we are still TTC [trying to conceive] at 46 years old, and I expected her to say something discouraging.

But, lo and behold, she said just a couple of weeks ago one of her patients delivered healthy twins at …. drum roll…. 54 years old!

When I asked if they were DE [donor egg], she said they weren’t, and that this woman had her first baby at 45 years old.

She still had regular periods and just kept trying.

If that isn’t encouraging, I don’t know what is. She told me take folic acid, and keep at it.

So, take heart, fellow 45+ TTCers. You just never know!

Dr. Alice Domar's Mind/Body Guide to Enhancing Fertility and Coping with Infertility
by Alice D. Domar and Alice Lesch Kelly
 -- Infertility is a heartbreaking condition that affects nine million American couples each year. It causes tremendous stress, can trigger debilitating sadness and depression, and can tear a marriage to shreds.

In Conquering Infertility, Harvard psychologist Alice Domar — whom Vogue calls the "Fertility Goddess" — provides infertile couples with what they need most: stress relief, support, and hope.

Using the innovative mind/body techniques she has perfected at her clinic, Domar helps infertile women not only regain control over their lives but also boost their chances of becoming pregnant.

With Conquering Infertility, women learn how to cope with infertility in a much more positive way and to carve a path toward a rich, full, happy life.

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.
