My parents' friends had a child naturally at age 45

The other thing I remember too is when my parents' friends had a child naturally at age 45... People in the neighbourhood weren't saying anything about donor egg, they were saying "Oh, it must have been a change of life baby!". This couple weren't planning and it was, but still...


Then [my] doctor told me that a lady walked into his office the other day. She is 43 years. old. She thought she was going through menopause. Well Dr took blood test on her. Found out she is 25 weeks pregnant. She didn't look pregnant and Man oh Man was she SURPRISED!!! I'd be too.


I was just put in touch with a friend of a friend, who got pregnant naturally on her 44th birthday. She had been through such a long and harrowing time TTC that she had all but got divorced because of it. She stopped all ART and got pregnant 7 weeks later. She is now half way into her pregnancy and carrying a healthy baby. Here's to miracles for us all!


I have a friend who at 44 had an accidental surprise pregnancy. She was most definitely not TTC! I would imagine that she would be hurt by such conjecture [that she used DE]. She did however began menopause only about one year later, and her [periods] ceased completely approx. one year after that. Right under the wire for her!


At my sister's church, a 47 year old woman recently gave birth to twins (don't know any specifics around conception - assisted or not). The other interesting thing my sister noted is that - the week after delivery - this woman was the mother of the bride as her daughter got married.

You Can Get Pregnant in Your 40's



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.
