She was 44 when the twins were born

I hope you get the same results as my friend did!! First son was born when she was 42 and she was 44 when the twins were born. The twins were frozen embryos from her 1st son's retrieval. Amazing as one of the "twins" is almost identical looking to his older brother!!

I have 8 biological children and I am 50, I am in a new marriage of 3 years and have had a hard time conceiving and carrying the pregnancy to term my last child was born when I was 44, at home no complications or fertility help. But I just had a miscarriage this past summer at 7 weeks and I hope and pray that I will be one of these women that I have read about, I still have a period every 28 days and have no signs of menopause but, no luck yet.


Thank you so much for doing this site. I have been looking for a site like this for 3 years for encouragement and strength and testimonials to help me and I totally agree with everyone here and believe what you all have to say and thank you for not being judgemental.

A 47- year old woman in my yoga class had twins naturally after being remarried, her new husband not having any kids. She has a teenage daughter from her previous marriage.

My grandmother had my mom when she was 46 - and my mom is now 58! Obviously there was no medical intervention....in fact my mom told me that my grandmother was so embarrassed to be pregnant at her " old" age.


Growing up, the thought never even crossed my mind that a woman couldn't get pregnant after 43...I just always knew that it could happen because of my grandmother's story. Best of luck to all of you!

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.
