Had last daughter 3 months before 44th birthday.

I had my last daughter 3 months before my 44th birthday. We are not actively trying for any more, but I am also not using any contraceptives either.. leaving it up to fate.


My mother had me at 43 and my mother was born when her mum was 48. Have fun TTC.


My husband had a vasectomy reversal at 45, and I got pregnant 5 months later at 44 and had Fynn last November at 45, no problems with pregnancy or birth other than the usual I would say anything is possible.


Both my grandmother and my husband's grandmother had kids in their 40's without any problem. My husband's grandmother must have been around 46 when she had her last daughter as his aunt is much younger to him. So nothing is impossible.


Meera Syal (actress on Goodness Gracious Me in England) was on the television programme "Loose Women" today on ITV. She is expecting her second child in December at the age of 44 -- apparently a natural conception. (She had her first at 32)

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.
