I got pregnant at 44 & had Fynn at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, July 10, 2006 | 0 comments

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.


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


I have conceived naturally at 47- June


I am 44 years old with a beautiful 19 year old daughter by a previous relationship and a lovely husband. We would dearly love a child of our own and have been told by my GP that we have "unexplained" infertility. I have excellent fsh levels for my age and my mum didn't get her menopause till her late 50s. We have been TTC for a couple of years now with no success, and I have been told that IVF wouldn't help matters. Oh, and my husband's mother was born to a 47 year old!

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.
