Grandmother had my father at 45 year old.

In 1925 my grandmother had my father when she was 45 year old. He was her 12th. She'd given birth to a child every 2 or 3 years so my aunt was born when grandma was in her 40s...possibly 42 year old.


I am 43 and 9 weeks along. There will be 10 yrs between my dd and this baby.


Hi, I'm soon to be 45 and my youngest son, Cole, turned one year-old on April 10th. Both of my "late in life" pregnancies happened naturally. They were both also very uneventful and as a matter of fact my son was delivered at home by his father, which is almost unheard of seeing I was considered a "high risk" pregnancy because of my age????


I am 47 and gave birth a little more that 2 years ago. I am still nursing (just at bedtime) and feel absolutely no signs of peri-menopause.


One of my grandmothers was 48 when she had my aunt, who is one month older then I. She also had at least 2 other children in her 40's with no help. I'm holding on to this as increasing my chances. Good Genes and all. Especially since my other grandmothers sister gave birth at 43 (surprise baby) after they told her over 13 years before that she would never have a second child.

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.
