I am 45 & my baby boy is due in May

I am 45 years old, and my baby boy is due on May 27th. That is the same day my youngest birth son graduates from high school! So I hope Abraham comes early so I don't have to miss graduation.

I am so grateful to Dr. Berger and his staff for making this possible for me and my family! Good luck to all you ladies out there! - Vickie


I'm not the 45 year old from this list, but I was on the last one. My due date is 12-14. I had TR in October and had HSG and one round of Clomid right before BFP.


Elizabeth Ann Buttle is the mother who holds the record for the longest interval between the birth of two children. She gave birth to Belinda on May 19,1956 and Joseph on November 20, 1997. The babies were born 41 years 185 days apart. The mother was 60 years old when her son Joseph was born.


I was told at age 35 by doctors in my area that having a reversal was "risky" and I'd be better with IVF. At age 44, in October 2005, Dr. Berger performed my TR and now, at age 45, I am 10 weeks pregnant. Even when I told my OB/gyn I was going to have the TR done, she tried to talk me into IVF. I think she's still shocked that I did it!

I too was in the best shape of my life when I started this journey. I worked out with weights and cardio 3 to 5 days a week for two years before I had the TR. Just follow your heart!!!


You older mom's just rock....... I gave birth to my twins at 47...... There is no substitute for life experience in pregnancy or parenting a child. Congratulations one and all! - Margaret Anne

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.
