Pregnancy over 40 odds

Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome makes trying to conceive hard for anyone, let alone someone over 40. Because second, third (and fourth) pregnancy feels very different to that first time around! Despite a trouble-free pregnancy, I could sense a feeling of caution whenever I went for a scan or a check-up, as if my pregnancy were a freak accident that was bound to end in tears. However, some commenters here at Babble’s Being Pregnant blog have taken issue with that assessment, saying that I am overstating the unlikelihood of my current knocked up condition.
Various experts had told her that her eggs would be too old or that IVF would represent her only chance of conceiving, but despite that she fell pregnant naturally — twice — once, with twins, that she sadly miscarried, and subsequently with an ectopic pregnancy that resulted in the removal of one of her Fallopian tubes.
According to some, 43 was ‘over the hill’ to be having a baby – never mind the fact that the pregnancy was planned.


And it seems my experience certainly isn’t unusual.Jan Andersen, a freelance writer and editor, discovered she was pregnant at 40. Many fertility clinics won’t even work with a woman over 42 or 43 years old unless she agrees to use donor eggs. I’m curious to hear what you think, because to me, I feel like the odds of this having happened are astronomically low.
But a month later she was pregnant again — and in January this year Deborah gave birth to her son, Oliver.
It wasn’t until someone commented on my new cleavage that it occurred to me to take a pregnancy test. I took four home pregnancy tests — all positive — before I made an appointment to see my GP.


By the time Nicole was 42, she had been through IVF six times and describes herself as ‘emotionally and financially exhausted’.  Then she read about CARE Fertility in Nottingham, offering fertility treatment for women over 40. In fact Nicole was diagnosed with a condition where the body’s immune system goes into overdrive, producing killer cells which enter the placenta and attack the embryo.
