My husband & I thought we were done at 44, but apparently nature thought otherwise

I am currently 12 weeks pregnant. My husband, Steve and I thought we were done with the baby making but apparently nature thought otherwise. We have six beautiful children ranging in age from 20 to 6 years old. I am definitely dealing with the consequences of being older. Being pregnant at 44 is definitely not the same as being pregnant at 24. The morning sickness has been all day long sickness, I pee every 10 minutes and I have been exhausted. - Laurel


I am 45 ( will be 46 next month) I got a positive yesterday and am excited, scared to death and on an emotional roller-coaster. We weren't using any fertility drugs this time or when we conceived our [3 year old] son. I know I am very, very lucky to be blessed again.


My grandmother was 44 with her last. I have a friend who just had her last one at 46. She had thought she was going thru menopause when she learned that she was pregnant! - Bel


I'm 44 and went through a similar experience. We started TTC when I turned 40, I had a miscarriage right away. Then I had my son and had two more miscarriages since. Happily I'm pregnant now and am only 8 weeks but I'm really hopeful this time. - Cate


I am 43 and 23 weeks pregnant. I actually got pregnant about 6 weeks before my 43rd birthday. I had a CVS and a Level 2 and everything looks fine with this one! I am not a health nut either! I did do two months of Clomid (50 mg) this past time and it helped. Someone in my high school class also just had a baby and my cousin's wife had one at 44 without any fertility aid.

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.
