Good News!!! My friend, she is 45 and is now 16 weeks pregnant! She had 2 previous miscarriages, so as soon as she received a positive result from her in-home pregnancy test, she called her doctor and he immediately called-in a prescription for Progesterone.


[The book] “Pregnancy After 30” explains fertility and methods for getting pregnant. There are a lot of very positive real life situations regarding women in their 40's and 50's getting pregnant.


Pregnant at 51, photographer Annie Leibovitz is the latest, and perhaps the oldest, entrant in the burgeoning celebrity class of Mothers of a Certain Age. She follows Cheryl Tiegs, also 51, who recently delivered twins; and playwright Wendy Wasserstein, who had her daughter, Lucy Jane, at 48.


My sister had a baby at 45.

We decided to try, and we conceived right away. Luckily, my pregnancy was easy, and I felt great the whole time. (Of course, because of my age, I was advised to undergo all sorts of prenatal testing.) I delivered by C-section three weeks early because of some complications, but Olivia is perfectly healthy.

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.
