Just an FYI: My grandmother had her last 3 kids in her 40's. One at 40, next at 42, last one at age 45.

I'm 45, 30 weeks pregnant with my 8th child - 5th pregnancy. I've decided to forego all the testing, excepting for the routine blood work.


My midwife asked me if I would change anything or do anything, should the testing show any abnormalities and I say NO! So that kind of clinched it for me.

Christina, an art history professor at St Andrews University, was 48 when she gave birth to her daughter Lucy, eight years ago.

Finding out I was pregnant for the first time at age 46, was a big surprise in and of itself. There's some divine plan at work here, my dear friends. Have patience and faith.

I did it!!! I was on a rest cycle because I had a cyst. Did not even think about getting pregnant this month, really did not try, only had sex 1 time. (cd18) I had so much other stuff going on, planning a big party, starting a new job.


And WOW it happened. Beta 12,621. I thought I was late because of the cyst. I am so excited. Sending STICKY BABY DUST TO YOU ALL...

See us older women can still do it, I will be 46 next month. I really think the key is to relax, it was the first time in 18 months that I was not thinking about getting pregnant. After all the poking and prodding and injections over the last 5 months, it happened all natural. I go for an ultrasound tomorrow.

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.
