I am another 45 year-old mother to-be, and will be almost 46 1/2 years old when the baby is born in late summer.

No interventions, and one miscarriage at 44 years old, after six weeks.

My Down's risk was 1 in 18 before my nuchal translucency/blood test.

It was thankfully decreased to 1 in 185 afterwards.

I'm feeling very thankful, and will get another ultrasound, and probably an amnio at 18 weeks.

Love hearing other 45 and over stories!

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation: A Compassionate and Comprehensive Guide for All Parents-to-Be, by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napoletano. Publisher: Demos Health; 1 edition (May 15, 2012)The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation:
A Compassionate and Comprehensive Guide for All Parents-to-Be
by Wendie Wilson-Miller and Erika Napoletano

-- In their search for alternative means for building a family, those who face infertility turn to the nearly 500 reproductive specialty clinics across the United States.

While egg donors enter into the picture for a variety of reasons, every reason has the same desired result: a family to call one’s own.

Same-sex and single-by-choice parents are more prevalent than ever in the fertility industry, and there is no definitive, up-to-date guide to help families of all types approach egg donation, especially these niche groups. Resources are fragmented, true regardless of the family structure.

The Insider's Guide to Egg Donation is the first how-to-handbook that helps families of all types navigate the less talked about but widely practiced egg donor landscape with a warm and friendly tone, giving those in search of a different kind of stork the answers and information they need as they begin to research family-building options.

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.
