I am new to this board, but not to TTCing. I'll be 44 in December. My sister conceived her first month off the pill - she is 45.


[My acupuncturist said,] "I have been doing this 40 years and I know what I am doing" , which is probably ABSOLUTELY true, she has a waiting room full of baby pictures to prove it, and a client list which includes pregnant women 45 and 46 years old.


I do have a friend who got pregnant naturally for the first time at 43, miscarried, tried for four years and had her only child at 48, a healthy, normal, adorable and very bright boy who will be starting high school in the fall. - Sue


My Mom married very late (for the time) in life (over forty). I was born when she was 45. This was the early 1950, the only "reproductive technology" was old wives tales, and I was unplanned. In spite of the late age of conception, I think that I am normal although my husband and my daughter would disagree :) - Sammie Alice


Thanks everyone for the information. It helps to hear positive stories. I get so tired of the media telling women that they will all be sterile after they turn 35. I just don't believe it. My grandmother had 3 children after she turned 40 - had her last one at age 46.

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.
