The Oldest Parents Nigerian Finally Gave Birth To Twin Babies After 46 Years Of Waiting And A Lot Of I.V.F

The Oldest Parents Nigerian Finally Gave Birth To Twin Babies After 46 Years Of Waiting And A Lot Of I.V.F

Some couples got babies right after the marriage, while some have to wait for years before they get to see their own child upon their eyes. As for the Nigerian couple,  her husband, 77-year-old Noah Adenuga revealed that they have been married since 1974 and wanted their own child since forever.  Despite multiple Fᴀɪʟᴜʀᴇs they were experiencing throughout the journey, Margaret and Noah never give up.

 And the end, their efforts pay off after more than four decades of waiting before they get to hold their own babies in their arms.

“I have a dream and I believe our dreams and wishes will come true,  I never lost hope any day anyway. I stood on my faith that God will do it,” said Margaret.

Before Margaret finally got pregnant, it was said that the strong woman has already undergone I.V.F procedures for three times. All the efforts they’ve made up to this day surely didn’t go down the drain as they are now blessed with a daughter and a son at the same time.

The 68-year old Margaret Adenuga recently gave birth to beautiful twin babies after 46 years of waiting.  The twin babies were born by ᴄᴇsᴀʀᴇᴀɴ sᴜʀɢᴇʀʏ on Margaret’s 37th week of pregnancy at the University of Lagos Education (LUTH) Hospital last April. Dr. Adeyemi Okunowo, who welcomed the twins said that a team of experts had been assigned to monitor Margaret’s pregnancy due to the age factor. Dr. Adeyemi also stated that women at a later age might be able to conceive through I.V.F, but doctors must bear the medical ʀɪsᴋs ᴀssᴏᴄɪᴀᴛᴇᴅ with pregnancy at that age.

“As an old woman experiencing her first-time pregnancy, it is indeed a high-ʀɪsᴋ pregnancy. The babies being twins also adds to that, so we have to manage the pregnancy until it’s over. There are pregnancy-related medical ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs for late pregnancy such as ᴘʀᴇᴍᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ birth. Luckily, Margaret is fortunate, but the possibilities of other ᴄᴏᴍᴘʟɪᴄᴀᴛɪᴏɴs after giving birth is still there.”said Dr. Adeyemi.  46 years is surely not a short time. Congratulations to the couple!

We are going find the reason she is old, why she can get pregnancy:

Menopause is defined as the stopping of the ᴍᴇɴsᴛʀᴜᴀʟ cycle (for a year or longer). Most women reach this milestone somewhere between their late 40s and early 50s, with an average age of around 51 years old. So, it’s entirely possible to get pregnant the old-fashioned way into your 50s.

Before the ᴍᴇɴsᴛʀᴜᴀʟ cycle completely stops, there’s a period called ᴘᴇʀɪᴍᴇɴᴏᴘᴀᴜsᴇ when cycles become longer and less regular. Generally, women enter ᴘᴇʀɪᴍᴇɴᴏᴘᴀᴜsᴇ sometime in their mid 40s, but some may hit this point as early as their mid 30s. You’re still producing eggs during this time, so pregnancy is possible — albeit more difficult to achieve. Of course, you’ve probably heard this story of much older women carrying pregnancies to term. What’s important to understand about stories like these is that these women often ᴜɴᴅᴇʀɢᴏ ʜᴏʀᴍᴏɴᴇ therapy and ɪɴ ᴠɪᴛʀᴏ Fᴇʀᴛɪʟɪᴢᴀᴛɪᴏɴ (I.V.F). They’re the rare exception, not the norm.
