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.

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.
