My mom told us she was pregnant at 48

So, what's this about a baby sister?? Yeah, the shock was pretty complete when my mom told us she was pregnant... at 48.

What was she thinking? Even I knew how babies are made and I hadn't had sex yet! Rebecca Sterling was born on February 11, 1997... and I actually watched.

I had my first child at the age of 48, four years ago. I will be celebrating my 52nd birthday on the 20th of November, and I now find myself pregnant. I still cannot believe that anyone can get pregnant at that age, but I went to the doctor and he confirms that I am.

My husband and I were married last July (my 1st marriage), and immediately dropped birth control, figuring we could TTC, and have more fun while we were at it. I was 44, now 45, but have always been active and felt healthy, so it didn't seem totally impossible.

My baby is a good sized young boy, and very normal, active, and limber according to my serial ultrasonography studies. My glucose testing, blood pressure, and other tests have all been normal. I will be 27 weeks tomorrow, but am carrying so high and so far forward, everyone thinks I'm having twins or am very close to delivery.

Well, blast her for being pregnant at 48!

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.
