Tried for 10y, at 50 pregnant on her own with twins!!!

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, April 20, 2006 | 0 comments

My friend had a friend who had tried for 10 years do get pregnant and did IVF and all the stuff we do and at 50 she got pregnant on her own with twins!!! It can happen without donor eggs. It was more common than we think.


My older sister tried for 6 months to conceive (first child) and started to see an acupuncturist and became pregnant 2 cycles later a month before her 42nd birthday. She miscarried at 12 weeks and took some time off TTC but then did 4 more cycles while still doing the acupuncture and conceived again 2 months before her 43rd birthday. The baby is due in 4 weeks and my sister is 43 1/2 years old.


I think Dr. Sher boasts of a 48 year old who he was successful with via IVF, and that's quite a miracle...


She had a child at age 44 after always being childless and experiencing many health issues--completely healed herself with Chinese herbs.


I had my first child at 44.5, conceived naturally -- and now at age 48.5, my husband and I would like to try to have another baby the same way

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 our 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 there will be no more babies in our house.
