Well I finally went to a fertility specialist, and discussed using donor egg due to my age 44. To my surprise I had not had my period - thinking menopause?!!

I did two pregnancy test and are positive. No fertility treatment. I only took Fertility Blend for 3 months. I know I have an uphill battle, but I will be taking it day by day.

This site has been my encouragement to not give up. I pray for all women who are trying to conceive and are having it hard. I have a lot of testing to done starting tomorrow.


I am 44 years old and had my first baby on April 12, 2006. I used no fertility drugs. I had gone to a fertility specialist, but was told my eggs were not viable. My husband was not comfortable with the options he gave us.

Then, to our surprise, five months later we were pregnant. She is healthy, happy and beautiful. You have to do what is comfortable for you and your spouse, please do not give up hope.


Yes, I just turned 44 and am still reeling from the news of my pregnancy. This will be our 5th gift from God!


Hi - is there anyone out there who's pregnant and alone in their 40s? I'm 44 and have just found out I'm pregnant. This will be my first (and only) child.


I am 44, and have a 2 year old little boy. He is the love of my life. I just found out that I am pregnant again, and am thrilled. You shouldn't feel "too old" - your baby will bring you so much joy.

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.
