This mom was 44y old, with her 3rd baby

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, May 31, 2007 | 0 comments

This mom was a 44 year old, and this was her 3rd baby, a VBAC with a 14 year gap between pregnancies, she was due on the 9th of November. Baby girl was 5lbs, 12 oz and 20 inches long.


One true success story is my cousin, who conceived #3 at 43 with no help, but after 2 failed IVFs (pregnancies with miscarriages), and even a failed domestic adoption. She also said our great grandma had her 11th child (ok, so she was really fertile!) at 44 or 45.


I have a dancer friend who I took classes with in New York City, who conceived at 45 (almost was 46) with no drugs, nothing... baby was born healthy.


Before I had my retrieval on Monday, my doctor told me that in his office, he has had a 45 year old (had twins), a 46 year old (single birth), and a 47 year old (single birth) - all with their own eggs, and he was very optimistic with me.


Her grandmother had her mother at 48, she had 10 children, and she also had one at 44... all natural.. Even mentioned this to RE today, and he said mostly genetic background (strong past genes), and that it can very well happen!! Any of your have parents, grandparents, great-grandparents having kids late? check it out!

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.
