Oddly enough an u/s tech told me last December that she conceived at 45 years old...thinking she had entered the big M went in for a checkup since she did not have a period for months. Found out she was a few months preggers! She said IT CAN HAPPEN and we were not even trying! She had an older child from her first marriage and was remarried and apparently not using birth control. All I can say is this woman was too skinny at 56 when I saw her (so very plausible she did not know for months she was preggers!), and she said her DD was a healthy 10 year old now.
