I am now 46 years old and 12 weeks pregnant - so far, so good!!

I decided to become a mother on my own, and I feel so blessed and lucky I was able to get pregnant.

I'll be 47 years old when this baby is born, and I am looking forward to my new life and new role as a mom!!

I used my own eggs along with donor sperm - this was based on the fact all my fertility tests were fairly good - Clomid to stimulate the ovaries a bit... then an Ovadril injection.

Yes, it was an IUI [Intrauterine insemination].

There's a little family medical history which may have been in my favor as well, one cousin was 48 years old when her daughter was born .

She had a normal, uneventful pregnancy, she actually thought menopause had started!!

by Cara Birrittieri

-- Until now, there has been little practical advice on what women can do about ticking biological clocks.

What Every Woman Should Know About Her Biological Clock is the first book to explore a woman's reproductive lifespan completely, from beginning to end.

Based on Cara Birrittieri's own experience of running up against a slowing biological clock, she shows women for the first time how to tell what time it is with a simple blood test giving them a peek at the state of their ovaries.

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.
