I will be having my 2nd a few weeks before I turn 44

Follow your heart! I had my first baby at 41 and will be having my second one a few weeks before I turn 44. We know the risks and are willing to take the chance. Our firstborn is incredible.

We didn't need to use fertility methods... but I had been on prenatal vitamins for a long time before conception. God has blessed us. Having a baby was a dream come true... one I thought I had given up in my 30's.

I didn't have the opportunity to be happily married and to be pregnant when I was younger. Now I am married and extremely happy. You have to decide if it is right for you and your husband...not for everyone else.


The doctors told me there was only a 2% chance I would get pregnant at 44. I'm now 45 and 7 weeks pregnant, with no fertility help! It's my 2nd marriage, my husband's first and he wanted a child. We prayed for this baby, and believe God has blessed us abundantly with it. Good luck. Do what feels right for you.


I am 20 years old. My mother was 45 and my father 49 when I was born, and they did a wonderful job and I couldn't have asked for a better situation. My mom says having a baby when you are older helps you focus more on that baby and she says it helps keep you young. All her friends were knitting and she was out paddle-boating on a lake with me and going to school field trips! She has tons of energy.

I say GO FOR IT! I loved it that my parents were older, because they are wiser and love me more, but at the same time, I fear I may lose them because of age and am jealous of siblings who got to have more time with my mom and dad.


I'm 47, I was told I would never be able to get pregnant, nor should I even try because of my age and being type 2 diabetic. But guess what, my prayers were answered, to the absolute surprise to everyone. But I am loving it, doctor tells me all is well, and I feel as if I have been given the most wonderful gift of my life by the Lord. I feel so blessed.


I had my beautiful daughter when I was 46. She is healthy, beautiful and the love of my life. This is my second time around, a new husband and new baby brought us all together as a family. Never say never.

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.
