Dr. Zoll said the oldest patient he's helped to get pregnant was 46

OK, it's a long drive to see Dr. Zoll [local fertility guru acupuncturist], and he's expensive, but it could be oh, so worth it. And what a difference to finally see someone so competent and who gives me hope. He said the oldest patient he's helped to get pregnant was 46. And he thought I was a youngster seeing as I'm not 40 yet.

I knew a woman who had twins at 50! She had her first at 41 (girl), second at 44 (girl) and then twins at 50 (boy and girl). I'm not sure if she had assistance getting pregnant at 50. - Donna

I had used Fertile Thoughts about 4 years ago as my husband and I were trying to have a child. I have 3 children from a previous marriage. But my husband and I started trying to have our own child about 8 years ago. After 6 years and 6 miscarriages, I couldn’t handle the emotional roller coaster any longer and we gave up trying to have a child. I finally got to the acceptance that we weren’t going to have any more children after 2 years. I just turned 45 2 weeks ago and I just found out that I am pregnant last week.

Don’t worry, my aunt had her last child at 48 and her baby is fine. There are a few higher risks but just do the best you can to take good care of yourself and you will be just fine.



TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: What I Thought I Knew: A Memoir, by Alice Eve Cohen. Publisher: Viking Adult (July 9, 2009)What I Thought I Knew: A Memoir
by Alice Eve Cohen
--A personal and medical odyssey beyond anything most women would believe possible

At age forty-four, Alice Eve Cohen was happy for the first time in years.

After a difficult divorce, she was engaged to an inspiring man, joyfully raising her adopted daughter, and her career was blossoming. Alice tells her fiancé that she's never been happier. And then the stomach pains begin.

In her unflinchingly honest and ruefully witty voice, Alice nimbly carries us through her metamorphosis from a woman who has come to terms with infertility to one who struggles to love a heartbeat found in her womb - six months into a high-risk pregnancy.

What I Thought I Knew is a page-turner filled with vivid characters, humor, and many surprises and twists of fate.

With the suspense of a thriller and the intimacy of a diary, Cohen describes her unexpected journey through doubt, a broken medical system, and the hotly contested terrain of motherhood and family in today's society.

Timely and compelling, What I Thought I Knew will capture readers of memoirs such as Eat, Pray, Love; The Glass Castle; and A Three Dog Life.

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.
