47 and Pregnant After Children Born Through IVFI just love stories like this one. This woman had her children through IVF, then spontaneously conceives at the age of 47! It just goes to show you that babies come when they are ready! As a matter of fact, there does seem to be a trend that couples conceive naturally after having children born through IVF (my website has a number of articles about this phenomenon - scroll down to the bottom of the home page for more articles on this subject)
From the article:
Susan and Ambrose Samulski used fertility treatments to help conceive their three children. So it was a bit of a surprise when, 12 years later, they found out they were pregnant with a fourth.
"I thought I'd gone through menopause," says Susan, who was 47 at the time. "I went to the doctor and had a list of all the things that were bothering me. He said, `Could you be pregnant?' and I said, `No way.'
"I made him test me twice – I just didn't believe it."
It was a total shock, agrees Ambrose – he had worried his wife had a terminal illness.
As for the children, "My son said something like, `You crazy kids,'" Susan recalls. "But we were all thrilled."
