Just Luck Or Is It More Than That?

Image: Bed Head, by Andrew Bishop, on FlickrI sometimes hear: Boy you were lucky to have a baby at your age.

Actually I agree to a point.

If you think about all the things that have to come together to get pregnant and carry a baby to term, there's a bit of luck no matter what your age.

Was it a surprise I got pregnant at the age of 44? Yes and no.

Yes, because I think everyone is surprised when they get pregnant.

No, because I didn't just get pregnant by accident.

I followed a systematic method of preparing my body and mind - I knew deep down I would succeed.

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.
