Chances of pregnancy at 44

People were sympathetic but at no point was it even suggested that, were I to meet a man, I had anything more than an outside chance of conceiving — and only then with the help of IVF. 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. 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.


And it seems my experience certainly isn’t unusual.Jan Andersen, a freelance writer and editor, discovered she was pregnant at 40. 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.
