Pregnant at 49, my 50th birthday on the horizon

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, August 15, 2006 | 4 comments

Sandy, 49, Wichita, Kansas, US - I find myself pregnant at 49, my 50th birthday on the near horizon. I have a son born in 1982 who is himself the father of my 2-year-old grandson. I have another son born in 1985. I re-married (a younger man) and had another son in 1996 after struggling with in-fertility. I was surprised in 1996 to discover I was pregnant with another boy. I have joked for the past decade that "I turned 40 and found out I was pregnant in the same week."

Now I find I will turn 50 pregnant. Un-planned. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Do 49-year-old women actually get pregnant without fertility boosts? My periods have become less regular, but I still had them, and I know when I am ovulating

Dolores, 52, Savannah, Georgia, US - I am currently pregnant with IVF twins

Stacey, 44, New Jersey, US - My name is Stacy (first time Mom) and I naturally conceived and delivered a healthy baby boy September 2004 at 43 years of age. I am now expecting another child April of 2006, again naturally conceived.

You know the saying 'life is full of surprises' true! I did have an uncle whose wife was 50/51 when they had their 12th child so I can only keep hoping and praying.

Leslie, 45, Germany - this is my third pregnancy in one year, all naturally conceived. The first one was terminated in August 2004; it was in the tube and the tube had to be removed. I was devastated, as I thought there is no way to become pregnant at 43/44 with only one tube left. The first time we tried again after the operation in December 2004 I fell pregnant again. I could hardly believe it, but sadly enough it was not ok, I lost it in the 11th week. I just did not want to give up, even though my spirits started to be very low indeed. All the hormones up and down really affected my body and I gained a lot of weight.

Anyway after the pregnancy loss and operation on 4th of March we tried again in May and I fell pregnant straight away. Now I am in the 18th week and until now it looks very good and healthy. I can even feel the baby kick. So I think it is just as possible to become pregnant in the forties or even late forties. Just do not give up!

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.

    I am 49, and my fiance is 47. He wants to have a baby. I was thrilled that he wants us to have a baby. I have 24yr old son, and a 20 yr old daughter.Both pregnancies were fine except for the morning,noon and night sickness. I still have regular cycles...my question is what are the percentages of abnormality births at my age. That is what scares me most, and what are my chances of becoming pregnant. I have not been on any kind of birth control for yrs.
