I'm nearly 50 years old (in September).

Three years ago I had a Mirena IUD fitted, to help control heavy bleeding.

It worked brilliantly.

However, it doesn't seem to have been quite so good as a contraceptive.

Because now I am pregnant!

Almost unbelievable, really.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

One of my coworkers came into my office rather upset, and confided in me about his wife.

She was 45 years old, had just found out that she was pregnant BY ACCIDENT.

They had not planned on having another.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I had my daughter (my one and only) when I was 44 years old.

I was so happy to be pregnant, I didn't care what anyone else thought.

Now that I'm 46 years old, I am thinking about having another baby.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just popped in to show the application for membership I just received/approved today for 40PlusMoms:

I am 47 years old, and am a parent of a 4-year-old and twin 5-month-olds.

I would like to be in touch with other older moms of young children.


Enjoying your blog... Take care, Debbie

My grandmother had three babies in her 40s.

She had her last baby at 45 years old.

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.
