Still waiting - Imogen Edwards-JonesDuring her teens, Imogen Edwards-Jones was terrified of falling pregnant – now 36, she fears she will never have a child

When I was a teenager, I thought you could get pregnant from sitting in a Jacuzzi. Not that I'm sure I even knew what a Jacuzzi was, but I knew they were racy places where racy things happened. Men, as far as I remember, didn't even have to be there. So long as they'd been in the water in some sort of excitable state, pregnancy was inevitable — even if you kept your pants on. You see, pregnancy was that easy, that dangerous, and it could ruin your life.

Almost 20 years later and pregnancy could still ruin my life. Although now, it is not the threat of what having a baby would do (no school, no education, no career, no future) but of not having a baby at all. I have been trying to get pregnant for two years and have not even come close to hearing the pitter-patter of tiny feet.

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.
