Us older women can still do it, I will be 46 next month.

I did it!!! I was on a rest cycle because I had a cyst. Did not even think about getting pregnant this month, really did not try, only had sex 1 time. (cycle day 18) I had so much other stuff going on, planning a big party, starting a new job. And WOW it happened. Beta 12,621. I thought I was late because of the cyst. I am so excited.

See us older women can still do it, I will be 46 next month. I really think the key is to relax, it was the first time in 18 months that I was not thinking about getting pregnant. After all the poking and prodding and injections over the last 5 months, it happened all natural. I go for an ultrasound tomorrow. - Patty


I got the congratulations call!!! I'm in shock, but you ought to see my husband!! My beta was 575 - I'm 12dp5dt. I'll go in again on Friday. Thanks for all your support. - Shell
Age 44/husband 41 – Married 1 ½ years, I have 2 natural children by first marriage, daughters 16 and 10


My mother had me at 45. I was the last of 10 and she would liked to have had more but my father said no.


My aunt had a child at 47 and my friend had one at 42, both natural miracles.


Just thought I should pass on my story ... I conceived daughter#1 at 41 (after 4 rounds of IVF), daughter#2 at 43 (after 2 rounds of IVF) and daughter#3 naturally at 44. I have never been more surprised in my 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 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.
