Friend was his mom's 11th child at 48y

Here's one to add. Just talked with a friend who's mom had him when she was 48. He was her 11th.


One of my aunts had babies at 44 & 46, another aunt had a baby at 45.


Let's see... I'm 52, dh is 54, and the 3 youngest children are 11, 8, and 5. You can do the math. We are TTC again with enthusiasm.


I have a couple of stories to add, too. My hairdresser had her first at age 39 after m/c, her second at 41 after another m/c, had two more m/c's and is expecting her third in September and she's 43 now. Also, my ob/gyn had her first (twins) at age 40 after two m/c's, and she is currently out on maternity leave with her third after giving birth in March at age 42. She also told me that over-40 pregnancies are fairly common in her practice.


Hi All...I'm 5 weeks pregnant and 45 years old in 6 days. Got pregnant the first month we tried.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
