I conceived easily just before my 45th birthday

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, December 31, 2006 | 0 comments

My doctor told me she doubted I could get pregnant, and that women past the age of 42 or 43 just did not get pregnant without medical intervention or donor eggs. I conceived easily just before my 45th birthday and so far I am having a normal, uneventful pregnancy.


The oldest patient we have had at Penn, got pregnant with her own eggs, and was 46 years old at the time of delivery of her child.


I'm 46 years old. I conceived in October 2005, but sadly I miscarried on December 19, 2005 at 9 weeks pregnant. I still feel as though I can conceive and carry full term. Only God knows and I pray that one day, it is going to "happen".


I am 46 years young and presently 33 weeks pregnant with my little girl. Although this is my second child, my son will be almost 18 by the time his sister arrives !!!

I did have IVF but we conceived on our first try ( winning the baby lottery one doctor told me!!!)


My own mother was 48 when she delivered me.

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.
