Ms. Ge Xiaotian is 47 & found to be pregnant

Ms. Ge Xiaotian is about 47 years old. In November 2000, she was detained and imprisoned in the Jinshan District Lockup. After six months, she was found to be pregnant.


I will be 45 in September and due in early December. I had my first miracle at 43 after years of infertility and useless IF treatment, and now it seems I have been blessed again naturally. (If you can call trying at this age natural)


I'm 23 weeks tomorrow, and 44 years old. I've started thinking a lot about the baby's birth. I took Lamaze with my first daughter but really felt like I just wanted to turn inside and go with the contractions inside of focusing away from them.

So what to do this time, I want it to be as natural as possible and hope to labour at home for as long as possible. I feel a little funny about taking a birth class with people half my age.


I am 44 and just found out I am pregnant again after trying for 4 months. I had my first baby (also conceived naturally) at age 41. Don't let the stats get you down - it is definitely possible. - Jennie


After a 26 year history of infertility, including 16 cycles of Clomid in my 20's with no success, I went on to adopt a wonderful baby in 1989, returned to college and otherwise have had a rich life. I have never had a pregnancy. It became natural to me that I would never conceive.

I am 45 years old and thought I was entering menopause. I was told yesterday, based on a Beta HCG that I am around 12 weeks pregnant. Of course, I am elated.

I was truly surprised , as I haven't had overwhelming pregnancy symptoms, which is why I thought I was starting menopause. Is this more common than I realize? I have never missed a period, although my last period was extremely light. - Cindy

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.
