Hey! My grandmother had my mother when she was 46!!!! 46.
Unbelievable, except I know it to be true.

I have a friend who just found out she's pregnant. She's 45. And she had one at 41/42. I don’t think it's over for the 40- something’s, just because of the age.

Met a 45 year old pregnant naturally this week! I was sceptical and pressed the issue (you did IUI, IVF, SOMETHING?) and she said no, just timed sex. Apparently her mom had 8 kids, one at 40 and the other at 43, so she had fertility in her family, but I still found her inspirational.

My sister in law is 46 and she just gave birth to a healthy baby girl; no tests, no idea what her FSH is and no problems. Just tried and got pregnant and no problems. I think it's possible for all of us, we just might have to wait and go through more than some people.

My Chinese Dr just told me of one of her patients who had 30 FSH, already into menopausal symptoms and 45 years old has just got pregnant!

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.
