In our grandmother and great-grandmothers days, when there was no such thing as contraception - except locking the bedroom door, they had children well into their 40's and nothing was said. I think one of my grans had her last child at about 45/46.


Pandora - I have conceived naturally at 47


My husband's step Mom, married to his father for more than 20 years, had a lot of babies who always passed away at early ages (maximum at 4 years old) because of a genetic disorder from her side. Finally, she managed to have a boy and a girl after more than 20 years who survived, my husband interpretation of her age at this time is that she was around her mid forties


My mother was 40 when I was born and my father's mother was 54 years old when my healthy Uncle was born.


Dawn, 46. My husband, 49. Very shocked, but delighted to be expecting baby no. 4 in Jan. '06.

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.
