I'm 46 and just found out I am pregnant. This is my 4th, I have a 21,18 and 7 year old. My husband is 41. There is always hope - Susan


For those of you who are 45 or 46. I had my first ultrasound yesterday and we are definitely a little pregnant. I will be 46 in two months. My husband is 46. He had testicular cancer and had righty removed. Lefty had a varicocele that was repaired. We tried 5 IUI's that didn't work. The chances of us conceiving naturally are infinitely small. But we did. We only have a 50/50 chance to make it to term, but those are great odds compared to the chance that we would even get pregnant. Good luck to all.


I had my first child the month before I turned 41. Got pregnant first month trying. (Also got pregnant first month trying 3 months prior, but it ended in miscarriage). We decided to give him a sibling. I will be 44 next month. I tried for 6 months, and finally got pregnant again. I am almost 12 weeks. It's amazing at my age, but it can be done! - Lisa - Maryland


I have high hopes that it will happen... when my mother was born, my grandmother turned 50 the following month!! She was #8 and had 2 others in her 40's and this was all without all of the medical benefits that we have now! Anything is possible! I just stay positive and hope that helps.


I'm a 44 year old female that recently had a tubal reversal, with left tube intact and functional perfectly I became pregnant in the fall of 2001, but miscarried early on. I recently started acupuncture and have had great results, no PMS (which was horrible, and lasted at least 10 days leading up to my next cycle). - Donna

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.

    Your site is very interesting. Please come visit my site for baby boomers. I am planning to write something at some point about women having children post-40.

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
