April 24, 1992 - ROME —

A 62-year-old woman has become pregnant after a test-tube conception, her doctor said Thursday.

She apparently would be the oldest person to give birth if she delivers successfully.

Concetta Ditessa, a housewife from a Calabrian village in southern Italy, is due to give birth to a boy in August.

She has had no complications, Dr. Raffaele Magli said in a telephone interview from his office in Naples.

by Victoria Hopewell

-- Victoria Hopewell was a forty-something divorced clinical psychologist when she met and married a longtime bachelor whose ninety-year-old parents were anxiously waiting for a grandchild. 

Problem was, even though Victoria had two young daughters from a previous marriage, her intense desire to create a baby with her new husband was thwarted by her own body. Her eggs were aging faster than her healthy hormones and youthful appearance would suppose. 

Desperate to bear a child, willing to undergo every procedure from Lupron shots through egg harvesting and in vitro fertilization (IVF), she is blocked at every corner of medical protocol from achieving her dream of a successful pregnancy.


Finally she journeys toward acceptance of using a donor egg, much to the dismay of her growing daughters. But no eggs are available, and she is placed on a lengthy hospital wait-list. Victoria and her husband then embark on a surrealistic egg hunt to find their own donor. 

Follow her insider's account of the hidden world of egg donation-where women's eggs are bought and sold over the internet and a beautiful model with high SATs and a prior successful donation commands the highest prices.

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.
