Bob and Kristin Valmes and their son Jacob, 8 weeks, in their home in Elk Grove VillageMaria, an interactive marketing manager at Motorola, was 29. For the next three years, the Cardosos tried different assisted reproductive technologies, including in vitro fertilization (IVF). They saw two different fertility specialists, and Maria even received an experimental treatment in her native Brazil. Nothing worked.

She suffered through two miscarriages, an early pregnancy loss and an ectopic pregnancy, where the fertilized egg implants itself in a fallopian tube rather than in the uterus.

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.
