I was 44 when I delivered my twins

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, September 16, 2006 | 0 comments

I was 41 when I delivered my oldest and 44 when I delivered my twins. Both pregnancies were relatively easy. No morning sickness, high blood pressure or gestational diabetes. My worst symptoms were exhaustion, reflux and itchy tummy.


I delivered my boys when I was 46 years was the best pregnancy......even though it was two babies at one time. You can do this, if an old lady like me could do it! - Margaret Anne


This time around I will be 44 when I have my next two. Yep twins again, I don't do things by halves. If you are in good shape, and heck even if you aren't but know you can handle it I say go for your dreams. You never know unless you try. I was told I'd never have children and now I am Mum to 4


Not sure anyone is still talking about this...but yes I did have a baby at 52..I am 55 now...and a step away from doing it again...that is if I get my courage up.


My mother's mom was 44 when she had her...and I just learned of a women who is 48 years old who delivered healthy twins, so yes it is possible.

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.
