Yes, it was a natural pregnancy - didn't do anything different except “baby-dance” in the afternoon. I take vitamins, B-Complex, Omega 3's, selenium and magnesium everyday. Hope you get your BFP this month. - Kim (45)


At 43 and 6 attempts at conception, finally I conceived. My doctor was great, he told me “now you’re just a normal pregnant woman.” He wasn’t particularly concerned about my age unless a problem came up. I went past my due date. I was in full blown labour within 15 minutes and gave birth 3 hours later.. no tears. WOW’ Janine F… older IVF mother … NZ


Rachel Hayes, 51, a marketing executive and mother of a 7-year-old boy, said she was at a meeting of executive women roughly her age. She found herself thinking about day care issues, while the other mothers were talking about their grown children.


Jan Stetson, 55, an Arlington woman who had her two daughters at age 40 and 44.


My co-worker's wife had an oops in her later forties! (She had two twenty year old boys when it was found out Emily was coming!) Emily just asked for Christmas for a little brother or sister.. Mom and Dad said no way!
(Emily's about 4 now.)

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.

  1. I got pregnant with my youngest at 46. I couldn't read the test result without my glasses. LOL.

    I am blessed.

    He is my joy!
