    What A Surprise

    I have recently found out that I am 6 weeks pregnant and I am 43 next month. It was not planned, and I do not have any other children. I thought my menopause had started. Not sure what I should do. My long term partner says it is entirely up to me.... I am so confused.

    Almost Ivf...

    I'm 43 and my new husband is 52. We married in September and have three children between us, but none together. We started trying for a baby when we got married, and started seeing a fertility specialist soon after. We decided that at my age, we should try IVF most immediately...

    Very Blessed, But Very Scared

    I am almost 5 weeks pregnant at 43. It happened naturally.....not necessarily planned or unplanned. I am a Christian woman and believe this is a gift from God. I felt urged by Him not to read the statistics on the odds of a healthy pregnancy at my age, but did some reading this...

    This morning, I had a positive pregnancy test.

    ..at nearly 43. This is a miracle, that I conceived naturally after a tubal reversal and several miscarriages. I tried IVF and fertility drugs, but they didn't work, and the process was heartbreaking. I finally went to a counselor who advised me to let go and stop trying to...
