    Hum, Sonia Kruger pregnant at 48, turning 49.. Through ivf. Has to be egg donation? If so I hope she comes out and admits it as these stories are what trick some women into believing you can leave this fertility caper to much later in life.

    Yeah I saw that - has to be egg donation or maybe even embryo donation. I read she's done years of IVF and had a fee miscarriages. Cheered me up to read that she's finally getting there, good on her. You can just imagine what she and her husband have been through to get to this point, must have taken epic strength to get to this point.

    Yep it's beautiful news for her definitely - hoping she is honest and doesn't pretend it's a natural miracle, unless it was. What are the chances I wonder of an ivf birth using own eggs at 48?

    Somewhere between buckleys and none - unless she froze a whole batch like ten years ago...

    Chances are less than 1% - I'm sure I've read that no Australian clinic has ever had a live birth with own eggs over 45.
    Very happy for her, but I'm going to find it very hard to believe if they say it's her egg. I understand it's no one else's business but if you are in the public eye you have a responsibility to educate the next generation on how hard this is over 40.

    Yes I agree with that too, she may have gone OS to do egg donation I've just read the article in the Sunday paper and there is no mention of donor egg. Most celebs usually hide it.

    Hi, just thread jumping , but as someone pregnant through DE at 42, after years of ivf, now that I'm here I see that info as my kids to share if they want, not mine. I used to think celebs should share/disclose, but now that I'm in the same boat I've changed my mind... I'm lucky I don't have New Idea stalking me!

    That's an excellent point Emski - and I hadn't considered it from that angle. Thanks for providing some perspective. At the end of the day, the priority should be doing the best thing possible by the child in question - this applies to all donor conceived children, egg or sperm.

    I guess I just hope that someone in their late 30s doesn't read about Sonia and think, if she can do it with her own eggs at 48, surely I can too. I know I was personally a little influenced by certain people in the public eye who were pregnant well into their 40s, when I was younger and knew nothing about fertility.

    I guess at the end of the day, women should step up and educate themselves, I think this already is starting to happen to be honest, with the next generation.

    Yeah, I'm very vocal with all the girls I work with who are approaching mid 30s about freezing their eggs - they probably think I'm mad!
