If you are 49 and you want to give birth to a child, egg donation is probably your only option (there may be a few instances where women have conceived without an egg donor at that age, but I know it is not very likely after the early 40's). If carrying the pregnancy yourself is not your top priority, you could use a surrogate. Both of these solutions are expensive and emotionally complicated, but both would allow you to have a child that is biologically connected to your husband. If you are thinking about either of these things you should make an appointment with a fertility doctor very soon. Adoption would be your other option, but you may find your options limited there as well due to your age.
