Sister in law got pregnant at 42 & again at 46

She then went on to say that after all that it can happen naturally ! That her sister in law got pregnant at 42 and then again at 46 ... her advise was to just carry on and if it happens it happens!

She's had two patients at 47 conceive naturally and have perfect pregnancies and babies. Have confidence in your body! We're all rooting for you

BUT, doctors are often very wrong about their statistical data...many women at 45 here are more fertile than I was at the age of 28. so the age thing is not always right!


I'm glad you're getting so much encouragement from the knowledgeable women here. My RE took a different approach from yours. She said there was every reason to believe that I could get pregnant with my DH's sperm, and that at 47 my chances were much better without her intervention. She strongly encouraged us to keep trying, and referred us to a nutritionist and acupuncturist as supports for our efforts. She herself is a few months short of my age, and she runs a positive, supportive, and honest practice, so that may account for the her approach to us.

I am 47 and 6 weeks pregnant, I have been pregnant at least 6 times as I know of in the last 18 months good organic diet vitamins and bottled water plus one acupuncture session per week (which I only started 4 weeks prior to conceiving) and an absolute positive belief in my own ability to conceive is what I believe have helped me to conceive, hope this helps

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.
