Hi, I just got married 11 months ago, turned 47 one month ago and had a miscarriage also a month ago. My doctor stated I was too old and my eggs were too old to conceive but yet I did - to his, his colleagues and supervisor amazement.

I was two months and half weeks pregnant, and yet my doctor did not believe me. He stated, "Oh, you are probably going through menopause." But when he ordered labs on me, it was confirmed. It shocked the hell out of him.

When I had the miscarriage, he told me to keep trying and I proved every one wrong. Listen, only God knows and he decides all. Keep trying because I am. Good Luck to all!


I'm 26, but my mum of 45 is about to give birth to my baby sister in 3 weeks time! Age doesn't matter its love that counts!


I am 46 years old, pregnant with my 4th child. This was a shock, but we are so excited. I have 21,18, and 7 year old. I am due in January.


I’m 37 going on 38. I’ve got 5 kids and want another as my partner wants a boy so badly. You are never too old to have kids, my mother had me at 45.


My Mum was 45 in 1966 when she gave birth to identical twin girls. (I'm one of them)! She was working as a midwife at the time, and carried to term we were 6 pound each! Dad was, wait for it, 62!
They also had a 10 year old daughter.

By all accounts we were beautiful, healthy babies, complete with golden curls. Our parents had enough energy for us all, and were always there for us. Because their working days were over when we were born, they had plenty of time for us all! Even in the teenage years, they listened to all our woes and supported us.

They saw & enjoyed 10 grandchildren. Dad died 3 years ago at 98, and Mum 18 months later at 82. They kept good health pretty much all their lives. Many of our friends lost their parents before we lost ours. We all adored them.

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.
