My mother got pregnant at 48 and my dad was 51. My sisters were married with kids when I was born.

With medical advancements these days, I'm still considering the motherhood goal.... After all, my mom was pregnant at 48, so I have good breeding genetics going for me.

Just got some great news ---- someone that I know is pregnant with twins! She is 47 years old.... Apparently, this woman had no assistance (just hormonal shots) and did not do IVF or use Donor Eggs....unable to conceive for years......

My best friend's mom was born when her mother was 46 and that was 65 years ago, so I guess it is possible.

Although a relatively rare occurrence, a woman can get pregnant with her own stuff until she stops ovulating. Which for many of us is NOT at 47. My midwife had that chat with me two weeks ago. She has two women in their middle 40's who had surprise pregnancies.

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.
