Oldest recorded natural pregnancy was 57y old

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, December 13, 2005 | 10 comments

The oldest recorded natural pregnancy was a woman who was 57 years old in California in the late 90's.

Many of the spontaneous conceptions after age 45 do result in multiple births. Take Arcelia Garcia for example -- triplets at age 54 in 2000. Natural conceptions. Also in 2000 a 53 yr. old gave birth to twins (natural conceptions) her story was a bit eclipsed by Mrs. Garcia's however.

My name is Terry, I'm 47, my husband is 50 (this week) I'm pregnant , again, without TTC, 7 kids (28-6) and 4 pregnancy losses in past 4 years.........

I just read on a site that a 50 year old woman is 9 weeks pregnant after doing an IVF. This is in Europe, no donor eggs were used, and they are just delirious. Got pregnant on her very first try. She got married when she was 45, she wanted kids as soon as she did get married, but never thought about alternative treatments.

Because of her poor responses to ovarian stimulation, inferior oocyte grading and prohibition of donor oocyte usage in Japan, the couple decided to discontinue further IVF treatment at age 48 years, 10 months. One and one-half years later, at age 50 years, 3 months she presented to our clinic eight weeks pregnant. At term she delivered vaginally a 2740 g healthy infant at 38 weeks gestation; Apgar scores were 9 and 10.

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.

    I turned fifty in July and have only one fallopian tube due to an ectopic pregnancy in my early twenties.

    I have a thirty four year old son and a seventeen year old daughter.

    I am completely shocked to discover I am pregnant especially given my partner of eighteen years and I have recently separated and we rarely had sexual intercourse during the last decade lol..due to our differences and just this last month had a couple of intimate moments???

    I never thought to use birth control though I have not missed a period yet and have not gone through menopause.

    What are the odds of this happening?

    I am completely shocked to say the least.

    I turned 50 a few months ago and have just discovered to my surprise that YES I am pregnant!!!
    I have a 19yr old and a 17yr old and have been trying for the past 16yrs to no avail.
    I saw my Dr not long after the birth of my younger son, but the Dr's attitude was very negative at the time & he put me off as he convinced me that age 35 was too old to be trying so I unfortunately took his word for it, though in hind sight I probably shouldn't have given that my mother who gave birth to 14 children plus several miscariagges, also gave birth in her late 40's. I should never have listened to this Dr who sadly took away my precious opportunity to mother again.
    Nevertheless I am now over the moon and can't wait to share the good news with my older sons whom have been begging me all these years to try for another bayby...... Comes to show expert opinion isn't always gospell!!!

    Hi , are all you older mums out there at your healthiest
    weight and eating a healthy diet ? I'm 44 years old and ttc but I have about 30 pounds I need to lose and a healthier diet wouldn't hurt. I think the weight issue is getting in my way of getting pregnant .

    I am 51. I haven't had a period for three years. My husband is divorcing me. We had sex three times in the last two years (he's had a vasectomy). If I got a new boyfriend in the next year, after three years of no periods, is there any chance of pregnancy?

    Pregnancy after age 45 is absolutely possible. I had my only baby at age 46, naturally and she is beautiful and perfectly healthy. All my doctors said it would not be possible after age 35. I sent them photos of the baby. I only wish I could have seen their faces when the photo arrived. I am a doctor myself, and I tell women to not give up hope, the last egg still exists.

    With God all things are possible. I have no child and am 49, but still trust that I will be able to have a child one day. Keep trying and praying.

    I had a healthy baby 3 months ago, a week before my 46th birthday, the doctor told me I am able to get pregnant again if I don't prevent it.

    I'm 47 and have 30-year old, 12-year old, and 2-year old sons. My last pregnancy came as a surprise when I was 44, and at 45 I gave birth to a perfectly healthy baby. Anything is possible!
