45 and defying STATS!!!!

45 and defying STATS!!!! - Married (1st time) age 43. Neither of us have kids. TTC for 2 years. 2 x IVF's at the Lister in 2005 - both BFN's. Looking into Donor Egg or our own miracle. My Day 3 hormone levels are absolutely fine FSH 8.4, LH 8.3 & Estradiol 127.

Jan '06 had first BFP but was chemical as disappeared after 2 days. Mar '06 second BFP at 11dpo faint but ++. By 15 DPO big fat positive big fat positive and yesterday on Clearblue Digital PREGNANT within 30 secs.

So, today I am defying the statistics. I have an awful long way to go so please send lots of sticky vibes. I will have a blood test this week to see how levels are and go from there. No we didn't have any medical intervention for this BFP or the one in January. This was a totally natural conception except for ingesting lots of vile Chinese herbs, being an acupuncture pin cushion and using Preseed lube which is Sperm friendly....


My nan had her last at 46 (13 in total!) and wept when the doctor told her she wouldn't have any more apparently!! My grandfather just shook his head and asked why she was crying when she'd always cried when she found out she WAS pregnant lol!!


Well, I shall call on the spirit of my grandmother! She had my auntie when she was 40, and my uncle when she was 45!


Next time you see your doctor you can mention that one of your friends got pregnant at 50... See how she handles that one!


Just as a point of interest - one of my colleagues had a "surprise" baby this year at the age of 45! - Didn't even realise she was pregnant until about 6 months down the line!!

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.
