A friend conceived at the age of 47

My counsellor told me a friend of hers conceived at the age of 47! Her daughter is 23 years old now, so there is hope for us all.

My sister had an unplanned baby at 45. Though she already had children who were in their teens.

Yes, a relative of mine (distant sadly) had her last baby at 47! So there is hope for us Golden Oldies yet!

I just want to say that my mother did, and I was born when she was 46. Her first and only child. I think however that it is possible, but rare, and certainly not something I have inherited from her. She smoked, drank, and was a bit overweight, and apparently did not have an active sex life with my dad. Beat all the odds, really. I think it is probably one of those things that happens by chance, naturally.

One of my work colleagues conceived at 45 - but had a series of miscarriages before that - around 7. Never had any problem conceiving, but problems continuing the pregnancy.

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.
