From Menopausal New Mom :

I guess I should backtrack a little and say for the record, how blessed I feel to have had my first and it turns out only child at the ripe old age of 45 years old.

She was the typical beautiful, bouncing baby who now fills every one of my days and finally, now she is three years old, just the occasional night.

So there I was, 44 years old and well aware of how remote my chances of becoming pregnant without intervention were.

They must be somewhere in the negative numbers by now I remember thinking.

No problem. I'd stop taking birth control.

I probably didn't need them anyway, and it would satisfy my husband who wanted to make sure if there could be a child in our future, at least we were allowing nature to take its course.

So that's how I ended up like this.

Up to my neck in dirty diapers and staring menopause right in the face!

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Is Your Body Baby-Friendly?: Unexplained Infertility, Miscarriage and IVF Failure - Explained, by Alan E. Beer, Julia Kantecki, Jane Reed. Publisher: AJR Publishing; 1 edition (October 28, 2006)Is Your Body Baby-Friendly?:
Unexplained Infertility, Miscarriage and IVF Failure - Explained
by Alan E. Beer, Julia Kantecki, Jane Reed

-- A unique book—the first of its kind. No longer do patients have to accept that their infertility is just bad luck and they just have to keep on trying.

No longer should women with recurrent miscarriages have to listen to their doctor telling them their loss was God's will or they ought to be thankful because their baby was probably chromosomally abnormal.

The statistics simply do not support such claims—in fact, they show that repeated reproductive failure can be a symptom of wider health problems in the mother.

Furthermore, the root cause can be treated—not only to promote the chances of a successful pregnancy but to improve the mother's health long-term.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
