She was 45y old & got pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, April 16, 2007 | 0 comments

There was one lady who contacted me who had not had a period in 11 months, was 45 years old and then got pregnant WITHOUT getting her period! She had had 2 previous children whilst peri-menopausal in her 40s!


For those of you who are 45 or 46. I had my first ultrasound yesterday, and we are definitely a little pregnant. I will be 46 in two months. My husband is 46. He had testicular cancer and had righty removed. Lefty had a varicocele that was repaired. We tried 5 IUI's that didn't work. The chances of us conceiving naturally are infinitely small. But we did.


I had my first child the month before I turned 41. Got pregnant first month trying. (Also got pregnant first month trying 3 months prior, but it ended in miscarriage).

We decided to give him a sibling. I will be 44 next month. I tried for 6 months, and finally got pregnant again. I am almost 12 weeks. It's amazing at my age, but it can be done!


I'm now 40 and we've just started trying for another little bundle of joy this month. I have high hopes that it will happen... when my mother was born, my grandmother turned 50 the following month!!

She was #8 and had 2 others in her 40's, and this was all without all of the medical benefits that we have now! Anything is possible! I just stay positive and hope that helps.


Well! I'm 44 and just found out I am pregnant. Very mixed emotions, I just want to have a healthy baby. Anyone else having gone through pregnancy in their 40's?

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.
