She found out she is pregnant at 47

On one of the other message boards there is a woman in the US who just found out she is pregnant aged 47 1/2!! She had her first at 45!!


I conceived naturally at age 44 and we’re trying for another I’ve posted on the other thread ( Clomid board). I just want to say your NEVER too old, so all of you over 40 don’t give up hope and keep trying .


A lady at our church conceived naturally when she was 45. She went to the doctor thinking it was her menopause! LOL Her son is now 11. Her 3 elder children are 25, 23 and 19!


MY SISTER IS PREGNANT!!!! She’s 45 years old and 7 weeks pregnant with her first baby! She’d been told about 20 years ago that she couldn’t have children because she wasn’t able to get pregnant, due to her body chemistry or something like that. So, she and her husband had not been using birth control. They didn’t think they needed it. And now she’s pregnant! My kids will actually get a cousin! I’m gonna be an aunt!


My 44 year old sister is pregnant ... doesn't want to be ... She has 3 boys and is done having children. She wouldn't even have known she is pregnant if I hadn't made her buy a HPT when I was in MD last weekend (she was 5 days late).

She is in shock - she will have the baby if it sticks - but it's just a huge heads up for me about TTC - it really doesn't make sense at all that someone who doesn't want a baby gets pregnant and then there's me who would jump for joy if I was in her shoes.

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.

    I've 43, I've had Cancer twice, born with Spina Bifida, told 20 years ago I could never get pregnant, and here I am almost 12 weeks pregnant with my first child. There are miracles in everyday life!
