However, one year turned into two, then three, ''but when it got to be nine, 10, 11 years, we were like, something is up, and I'm not sure what it is,'' she Susie said.

Dr Susie is a psychologist in Greensboro and her husband Tony Troxler works at Cone Health.

The successful couple had dreams of becoming parents, but a mountain of health hurdles put their baby dreams on hold.

''I had a boatload of uterine fibroids. I was too old, and Tony had some medical issues,'' Dr Susie revealed.

Besides the medical issues, their age was another factor that got in their way, increasing their chances of infertility significantly.

With a low chance of the couple having a healthy baby naturally, they eventually turned to IVF and egg donation.

Doctor's recommendation

Dr Carolyn Harraway-Smith of Cone Health OBGYN told WFMY News that a 50-year-old first-time mom is extremely rare and she doesn’t recommend it to every couple because of the risks involved.

Although advancements in science and technology have made it possible for women to become pregnant, such as egg donation, it is not always recommended.

Welcoming their first baby

Dr Harraway-Smith referred the Troxlers to Carolinas Fertility Institute, where doctors removed Susie’s fibroids, performed rounds of egg collections and IFV.

But done worked and the couple was down to our last embryo.

''They bring me into the ultrasound, and the first thing they said was, ‘Oh, she’s moving!’ I was like, 'Yes!'''

Dr Susie and Tony Troxler welcomed their first baby on September 29.
