My OB got pregnant at 45, gave birth at 46

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, February 05, 2007 | 0 comments

Also, this is cool... My OB doctor got pregnant at 45, and had her daughter at age 46. Perfectly healthy girl, an honour student, etc. So it is possible!!!


My mother was one of these surprises. My grandmother went to the doctor, complaining that she felt like she had when she was pregnant - over 18 years earlier. The doctor told her that she must be going through The Change and never believed that she could be pregnant. I guess doctors haven't changed much over the years!


And I had a friend who told me his wife got pregnant at age 55, after she had spent years of going through hot flashes, bad moods, little and varying periods. You just never know....


I'm 49 with a weaning 3 year old, and irregular cycles.


I'm 50 with a 4 1/2 year old (and 3 older children). I nursed the youngest until this past summer.

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.
