Fertility at 40

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, October 20, 2008 | 0 comments

Are you pushing 40 and considering conceptionThe first time Marie Pearson saw her seven-week-old baby's heart beat, rising and falling on the ultrasound monitor, she couldn't stop sobbing. It's an exciting moment for any expectant mother, but for Marie, the new life represented the successful culmination of a three-year struggle.

After several attempts with intrauterine insemination and in vitro fertilization injections, expensive trips to reproductive specialists in the U.S., and trying Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture, 41-year-old Marie was finally pregnant with her second child.

"There's truly nothing like discovering you've conceived after so many disappointments and lost dreams. We're so blessed for our little miracle," says Marie, who lives in Calgary with her husband, Brian Bertsch, 41.

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.
