Healthy little boy at 48 (her own eggs)

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, December 22, 2005 | 0 comments

The old Cl of this board I think had a healthy little boy at 48 (her own eggs). When I was pregnant with Gracie there were 3 or 4 ladies 45, 46 & 47 that had healthy babies. It seemed like that group of ladies were older than this group


My neighbour had her first child at 46. I believe she did IVF and it took them 5 years.


The funny thing is, I never thought of age as being a barrier to getting pg. Lots of women in my family have had babies naturally up until 50! This was in the "old country", though. So of course they had no fertility help, but I am wondering if they just used to eat better then?


Hi! I am 45 and my EDD is 1/05. I have an 18 yo son and 13 yo daughter.


She is 47 and they finally adopted a beautiful baby girl. They actually were able to see her being born! The baby is now about 6 months old, and low and behold, she is pregnant!!! She had her amnio not too long ago and her unborn baby is perfectly healthy. She is beyond happy. She figured they couldn't get pregnant so she threw away her predictor kits, medicines, etc. And now she will have two beautiful babies when she didn't think she could have any!

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.
