46-year-old woman in 8th month of pregnancy took part in marathon

A 46-year-old woman in her eight month of pregnancy took part in a marathon recently held in Boston (the USA). She covered 42 km within seven hours. New York resident April Noan, who is to become 47 in several weeks, said her doctors and organizers of the marathon allowed her to participate in the heat. What is more interesting, the woman does not understand, why people make so much fuss about her deed. Her opinion is, pregnancy is not a disease. Women in past centuries treated pregnancy especially seriously only when it came to its end.


DR. AMOS: After 40 the chances of getting pregnant decrease significantly, but it's by no means impossible to get pregnant. I just delivered on Mother's Day the first baby of a 45-year-old woman. This was her first pregnancy after 18 years of marriage and trying.


My sister will be 11 when my parents retire. They're both retiring when my mom hits 55. Yeah, she's the nut who had her first kid at 22, and her second at 44.


As a friend of mine, 44 and a newborn baby from IVF, says, well, everybody around me fails to succeed that treatment, so where are the 2%? She was one of them!


My Grandma was 47 when she had my Dad, and my ex's mother was 48 when she had him.

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.
