Sandy, 49, Wichita, Kansas, US - I find myself pregnant at 49, my 50th birthday on the near horizon. I have a son born in 1982 who is himself the father of my 2-year-old grandson.
I have another son born in 1985. I re-married (a younger man) and had another son in 1996 after struggling with in-fertility.
I was surprised in 1996 to discover I was pregnant with another boy. I have joked for the past decade that "I turned 40 and found out I was pregnant in the same week."
Now I find I will turn 50 pregnant. Un-planned. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Do 49-year-old women actually get pregnant without fertility boosts? My periods have become less regular, but I still had them, and I know when I am ovulating.

Dolores, 52, Savannah, Georgia, US - I am currently pregnant with IVF twins
Stacey, 44, New Jersey, US - My name is Stacy (first time Mom) and I naturally conceived and delivered a healthy baby boy September 2004 at 43 years of age. I am now expecting another child April of 2006, again naturally conceived.
You know the saying 'life is full of surprises' true! I did have an uncle whose wife was 50/51 when they had their 12th child so I can only keep hoping and praying.
Leslie, 45, Germany - this is my third pregnancy in one year, all naturally conceived. The first one was terminated in August 2004; it was in the tube and the tube had to be removed. I was devastated, as I thought there is no way to become pregnant at 43/44 with only one tube left. The first time we tried again after the operation in December 2004 I fell pregnant again. I could hardly believe it, but sadly enough it was not OK, I lost it in the 11th week. I just did not want to give up, even though my spirits started to be very low indeed. All the hormones up and down really affected my body and I gained a lot of weight.
Anyway after the pregnancy loss and operation on 4th of March we tried again in May and I fell pregnant straight away. Now I am in the 18th week and until now it looks very good and healthy. I can even feel the baby kick. So I think it is just as possible to become pregnant in the forties or even late forties. Just do not give up!
