I am not yet over 45 , but, am pretty darned close... I am 44 and just delivered boy/girl twins in February. I used my own eggs, although only given a 10% chance of success, it worked the first cycle. My miracle babies, Evan and Samantha are 11 weeks old and I am sooooooooo happy that I did this just in the nick of time!

Hi, I'm pregnant naturally and I'm 45 - will be 46 in May. I tried IVF in September, my 5 embies didn't make it to blast - in the process I became very attached to this site. I'm now 7 weeks - definitely not out of the woods yet

I just got an e-mail from a current member of my 40PlusMoms yahoogroup about a woman ("Linda") who dropped off the list last year because she got discouraged about ttc at age 45+. The member has kept in touch with "Linda" (who does not want to use her real name) by e-mail, and just got this news -- "Linda" was TTC with 50 mg of clomid on cd 3 - 7 and also using Pre-Seed, got pregnant on her second cycle of this regimen at age 47. "Linda" just went to the doctor and reports the pregnancy is going well.

My mother's mom was 44 when she had her and I just learned of a woman who is 48 years old and just delivered healthy twins. So, yes it is possible.

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.
