An acquaintance just delivered her son at 48

My best friend just emailed me a picture of an acquaintance of hers just delivered her son at 48 -got pregnant at 48, so she may be 49 by now. I emailed her and am hoping for a response, so keep on going. I am newly 49 and not quitting.

Also read posts that stated women getting pg in Honduras up to 60 and my acupuncture just told me of cases into their 70's!!! Yikes that is too much, but you get my drift. She believes it is Tai Chi and QiGong and diet changes for the Chinese. I am waiting for feedback on the Hondurans, as I know the hubby of the gal who said this and he is from Honduras. Do not give up!!


I'm 46 and will be having my baby in late Oct. My others are 22, 17 and 19 months, all conceived naturally. I know it's rare but it can happen. I truly believe it would be happening much more often if not for the fact that so many women (and men) have been "fixed", it alters the statistics of probability. I am very curious to know the statistics of conception post 45 when birth control isn't a factor in the comparative population.


I was pregnant at age 47, 49 &11 months and 51 & 6 months - all ended in miscarriage. I have heard many stores of women over 47 conceiving naturally, and I am hopeful that I can conceive too. Reading all the great inspiring posts here certainly helps. I should stop in more often for encouragement.


I'm 47 and just found out I'm pregnant for the first time. I haven't told my husband. He is happy with his older kids from a previous marriage (as am I, they are great) and prefers no more.


Today at church my friend told me her 49 year old daughter had twins in September, with NO medical intervention to get pregnant. The babies were born early, but are eating like champs. Mom is breastfeeding every two hours!!!! So let us not lose hope!!!! This story made my day!! Teresa

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.
