I was 44 when I had my daughter, without fertility treatments

I was 44 when I had my daughter who, in my totally unbiased opinion, is perfect. I had a normal pregnancy and normal delivery and I conceived without fertility treatments. Yes, I’m the oldest mom at the playground, but so far, nobody’s asked me if I’m her grandmother. As a matter of fact, I’ve been asked more than once, “Are you having another?”


I met a woman at my niece’s graduation party who gave birth to triplets at the age of 45 (without fertility treatments).


A tenant in our rental property all of a sudden tells me she gave birth to her son at the age of 45.


A local radio personality said his mother had him at the age of 48 (before the days of fertility treatments).


A 44-year-old woman, gravida 4, para 3, came to our clinic at 22 weeks of pregnancy.

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.
