My mom had her last child at 51

My mom had her last child at 51 and she was healthy.


I have never taken fertility meds. I am just a very fertile turtle. I had a baby at 40,42,44, and now pregnant at 46.


I have been waiting to share with you all until I felt more secure about the pregnancy. It feels more real now since today I had my first ultrasound and we saw the little heart beating. I will be 44 years old in 11 days and today I am 8 weeks 5 days along. So don't give up hope, it can be done, even those who are doing it the old fashioned way!


I married late in life (39, two months shy of 40). I am 45 years young and just gave birth to our son six weeks ago (yes, my eggs and my dh sperm...).


Moira Benigson, 51, fashion and retail headhunter, has a four-year old son, Isaac. Her third child was something of a shock, to say the least. "I only found out I was pregnant when I was 18 weeks. I thought I had started the menopause."

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.
