I'm 47, 8 weeks pregnant. I've got an 18 year old and a 15 month old. I delivered him a month before I turned 46. We went through 4 miscarriages trying to get our little guy, so I know how scary this can be. My pregnancy was no problem whatsoever. I did flunk the AFP for downs, but a level II ultrasound showed a perfectly healthy baby. - Becky


I am 44 years old, soon to be 45 and was wondering how many of you are my age and pregnant? I am about 5 and a half weeks and am not feeling very symptomatic... I have a 5 year old and a 21 month old and at first was not thrilled about this but after 2 weeks of digesting the situation, I would like to have this baby... Barb


I will be 44 when I deliver if I am lucky to carry this little one(s). I still remember when I delivered my last ,the nurse said oh it is so nice to finally take care of someone who is not young enough to be my daughter! Well, I don't think it was meant as a compliment but I really didn't care at that point as I had a new healthy baby boy! - Tricia


I'm 46 and 33 weeks pregnant. So far it was not much different than 20 years ago with my first pregnancy. - Vanessa


I am 45 and just found out that I am pregnant with my 5th child! I am shocked. I was having menopausal symptoms and just decided to test because I kept feeling that my period was going to start, but it never did! But, I can't sleep at night because I am so nervous to be pregnant at 45, almost 46.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
