Might I add a colleague of mine gave birth to her daughter at 44 years old.
Her husband was a bit younger but, after one miscarriage, she was successful with NO medical intervention.
My husband's buddy at 50-something years old just had his first daughter with his 44 year old wife.
She too had a miscarriage first.
They weren't even trying when she got pregnant the first time, and they were overjoyed.
They were crushed when she lost the baby.
Then she got pregnant again at 43 years old.
No intervention, their eggs, their sperm, their success.
As far as I'm concerned, this can and WILL happen for me, it's only a matter of time.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Enhancing Fertility Naturally: Holistic Therapies for a Successful Pregnancy
by Nicky Wesson
-- outlines ways in which you can improve your fertility through alternative therapies, diet, exercise, and relaxation techniques and avoid some of the hazards associated with conventional treatments.
It discusses the most common causes of infertility and explains how to determine which therapy is most appropriate for you.
In vitro fertilization, conventional medicine's most prescribed remedy for infertility problems, is expensive, dangerous, and has a success rate of only 14 percent, yet few of the one in six couples that experience infertility are aware of the effectiveness and safety provided by the wide range of alternative treatments.
Thoroughly researched and packed full of invaluable advice and tips, the book explores such therapies as acupuncture, reflexology, homeopathy, cranial osteopathy, aromatherapy, and herbalism.
The author includes case histories for each of the therapies discussed, showing how the therapies helped couples overcome both primary and secondary infertility in order to have the baby they longed for.
Paperback: 192 pages
