I found out I was pregnant the day after my 44th birthday... I opted for no tests, I have one fallopian tube... I was shocked... I am now 15 weeks. --- K.K.


Hi, I'm Julie, age 44 and pregnant with my first, due 10/16.


My grandmom had her last kid when she was 46. ~~~~ Mirjam


I turned 44 on Sunday and found out I'm pregnant with # 7.


Hi everyone, as usual I am the old lady on the boards. I am 49 and having my 5th child. I have 4 children (ages 19 to 27) from a prior marriage and 3 grandchildren. ---- D.D.

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.

    I found out I was pregnant at 44 too, I am cautiously optimistic. I had 2 miscarriages prior to this. I feel great and at 10 weeks, I am further along than I was the last time. I already have a 8 and 6 year old and am looking forward to having a new little baby in the house!

    Me too Lisa. I had my daughter in April, and I have two other girls age 7 and 9.
