My Dr delivered a 52y, not TTC, total surprise!

My Dr delivered a 52 year old woman & her daughter (early 30's) within months of each other! I had asked him how old was the oldest healthy pregnancy he ever delivered. He said she had no problems of any kind & wasn't trying to conceive either, a total surprise.

I also married a wonderful man 1 month before I turned 43. It took us 4 months but we conceived our beautiful healthy sweet baby james. I will be 46 in 2 weeks, and am currently pregnant again 8 weeks. The hardest thing was getting pregnant this time. We tried for about 18 months, had 2 unsuccessful iui's, and then when we least expected it got pregnant naturally. I had an u/s at 5w2d and we could already see the heartbeat. Another u/s at 7 weeks and we could hear it 147bpm. Everything is looking

Heck my Midwife was 46 when she had her first, overweight and high blood pressure. So there!

I'm 44, having my second child imminently, and, other than difficulty getting pregnant, have had an uneventful pregnancy (which I hope means the baby will be fine). I had no trouble conceiving #1, but after trying for two years for #2, gave up at age 43 assuming I was just too old. Then it happened accidentally at age 44.

My doctor didn't think it was strange that I am over 40 at all. He has about 10 patients now that are all over 40. One of whom is 48. So far all of us are having healthy babies.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
