I'm 45, & I'm 15 weeks pregnant.

Well get this, I was attending a menopausal support meeting monthly (I was a speaker at one point), and lots of good information. I realized, that I was still having regular periods, and that I might be able to get pregnant. I wasn't willing to go through any extreme measures. I'm 45, and now I'm 15 weeks pregnant.


I'm 37 weeks pregnant at age 44 and did it totally natural - no meds at all (except progesterone to keep it there - but that doesn't count). - Lisa


I also did the Yoga for Fertility DVD. Don't know if it helped, but a very good Yoga video!! - Lynn, 46, EDD 3/16/2006 it is a *girl*


I just wanted to let you know a story about a friend of mine. She was going through menopause and then at age 46 conceived naturally. She has a healthy baby girl. I just wanted to let you know that it can happen. There are other stories out there that are similar. Best of luck.


My husband's co-worker told him they have 6 children ages 3-19. The last 2 were born when his wife was 43 & 46. Conceived naturally and perfectly healthy.

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.
