She got a surprise, a healthy happy baby at 54

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, October 14, 2006 | 0 comments

I went to visit a neighbour of mine yesterday who had just gotten out of the hospital, we attend the same church. [We] were discussing about me still having children, she told me of this lady that works with her, apparently the women and her husband went on a cruise and when she got back she wasn't feeling well. She was having hot flashes etc, so she went to the doctor to see about getting something for the big M. She got a surprise instead, at the age of 53 and some few months she was pregnant all natural, had a healthy happy baby at 54.


I hope that I can be of encouragement to you. I am 45 and almost 16 weeks along. This baby and my 2 year old were conceived totally naturally. The only thing I was taking was prenatal vitamins and folic acid. I did use Preseed with this conception because I had no EWCM. It IS possible, I am proof of it. Good luck! - Julie


My older sister (45) is due with her first this spring (conceived naturally).


After dealing with my health issues we couldn't afford fertility treatments so I just gave it to god and figured if it was meant to happen it would. My outlook on life improved. I noticed the stars, the moon and the beauty of our world more than I had in years. I improved my diet and exercised regularly.

At 43 years 8 months, I became pregnant after more then 2 years of trying naturally. We're expecting a little girl in April. So please do not give up, please try to remember that everything we send out into the world returns to us and that we must love and care for ourselves to reap the rewards. - Meryl (44)


I was talking with a patient of mine on Saturday and she told me that she has 2 friends that have gotten pregnant on their own no meds or help !! One she said is 43 and the other one 47 !!!! Remember NEVER 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 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.
