It is possible to conceive a baby right up until menopause.

It is possible to conceive a baby right up until menopause. This is why every woman is told by her doctor to use birth control for a full year after her final menstrual period. If you still think pregnancy at menopause cannot happen, I suggest reading Hot Flashes, Warm Bottles, by Nancy London, MSW. This book details the challenges faced by women going through menopause who have babies.

OMG - pregnant at 43! I thought I was going through menopause and I am pregnant. My Ds is 15 and my dd is 10. My Dh and I are shocked. We has to have fertility treatments to conceive our children and this was a total surprise.

I'm 44 and expecting our 4th. I'm due June 11 and so far am having less trouble with this pregnancy than I did with the one at 40! Go figure? I have a daughter 22, son 21, son 4 and grandson who is 1.

I'm 44, I'll be 45 in July. My fiance and I have been together 3 years. He's about 12 years younger than me. We started trying to have a child in Nov. of 2001. I got pregnant in January 2002 and then miscarried on March 22, 2002. I became pregnant again and on Nov. 25, 2003 I gave birth to a beautiful baby girl. I would like to have another child, try for a boy...but I know my time is running out.

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.
