Her first son was born when she was 42 years old.

She was 44 years old when the twins were born.

The twins were frozen embryos from her first son's retrieval.

Amazing as one of the twins is almost identical looking to his older brother!!

I have eight biological children and I am 50 years old.

I am in a new marriage of three years and have had a hard time conceiving and carrying the pregnancy to term.

My last child was born when I was 44 years old, at home - no complications or fertility help.

But I just had a miscarriage this past summer at seven weeks.

I hope and pray I will be one of these women I have read about.

I still have a period every 28 days, and have no signs of menopause but, no luck yet.

Thank you so much for doing this site.

I have been looking for a site like this for three years for encouragement and strength and testimonials to help me.

I totally agree with everyone here, and believe what you all have to say and thank you for not being judgemental.

A 47-year old woman in my yoga class had twins naturally after being remarried.

Her new husband did not have any kids of his own.

She has a teenage daughter from her previous marriage.

My grandmother had my mom when she was 46 years old - and my mom is now 58!

Obviously, there was no medical intervention...

In fact, my mom told me my grandmother was so embarrassed to be pregnant at her old age.

Growing up, the thought never even crossed my mind a woman couldn't get pregnant after 43...

I just always knew it could happen, because of my grandmother's story.

Best of luck to all of you!

My cousin just gave birth to a surprise at 43 years old.

My friend's sister had her baby girl at 46 years old - after two miscarriages.

I just got pregnant myself on IUI [Intrauterine insemination] number three, and I was 45 years old.

However, it was an ectopic pregnancy.

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 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.
