How about that new post I just saw on the over 40 pregnancy forum....

She wrote: Just got married...wasn't TTA [trying to avoid]...

Just took prenatal vitamins and after the second month I found myself pregnant at 45 years old...

Well, I almost fell out of my chair.
These posts do exist!

My friend Mary, who is brilliant by the way, and born when her mom was 45 years old, would love to hear that it can't happen!

by Robert A. Greene M.D. and Laurie Tarkan

-- You have more than one hundred hormones circulating in your body – reproductive hormones, pregnancy hormones, sex hormones, metabolic hormones, and stress hormones – relaying messages from tissue to tissue, organ to organ, brain to body, and body to brain.

An equilibrium, a perfect balance in both partners, often determines your ability to conceive and support a pregnancy.

When your body is imbalanced, conception becomes very difficult. Luckily, hormonal imbalances can be corrected.

Drawing on the latest research in this field – which links underlying hormonal issues with infertility in men and women – Dr. Robert Greene, fertility specialist, ob/gyn, and reproductive endocrinologist, has created the Perfect Balance Fertility Program to help patients attain the optimal hormonal health that is necessary for conception.

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.
