My grandmother didn’t have her first till she was 42 and her second at 45 ( in the 1930's) so I am not to worried. I know lots of older mums, more worried about coping with new baby again. My new husband wants another one after this! we will see.............


Have your child, enjoy! You have the satisfaction of having lived a fulfilling life, financial success, a good career and the wisdom and life experiences to not make judgements about other's choices. I am over 45 and I ABSOLUTELY adore my 3 month old child. We have two other girls that are 12 and 16 and they cannot get enough of her. She is a joy ...each and every day!


Oh and one more thing - my OB told me that they had many, many women who were over 40 and having babies. They have big practice -- 6 OBs. My doctor told be I handled the pregnancy much better than a lot of her 20 and 30 year old patients. I have quite a few friends that are over 40 and having babies too! Obviously, birds of feather flock together, Enjoy the gift!


I know my sister in law waited 23 years trying to get pregnant and about $10,000 trying. She gave up when she turned 44 or so, and one year exactly she found out she was and her husband was 48. She had a few complications during pregnancy and a 7 month delivery, but you wouldn't know it now. Little girl is mentally at a 3.5 year old she will be 3 in July.


Lo, and behold - I found out I am pregnant. Now scared to death. 45 and pregnant at 5 weeks... have a 21 and 16 year old.. things are a lot different!

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.
