My great g'ma had kid #11 at 44 or 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, June 01, 2007 | 0 comments

My RE said genetics do play an albeit small part. My great g'ma had 14 pregnancies, 11 live births, 3 miscarriages (that she knew of) and had kid #11 at 44 or 45...

My cousin (her granddaughter and my mom's 1st cousin) had a baby at 43 (and conceived at around 43).

There's a great story in the Randine Lewis book about a woman who married at 41, went through NINE (9) Count them! IVFs and finally went to see Dr. Lewis, who prescribed dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture. In 3 months (I think) she had IVF for the 10th time, got pregnant and delivered at 46...

My sister in Law is 44 in January, and 29 weeks pregnant with her first, after doing 3 cycles of IVF. She saw an RE near Surfer Paradise. She is great with mature age ladies.

On Thursday I also saw another Chinese herbalist/acupuncturist, and he specializes in fertility. I said that I am scared of more miscarriages. He said, when you have one, you need to wait 3 months. I said, I can't wait, I've just gone closer to 42.


He laughed and said I was young. He had helped a 48 year old conceive and give birth using her own eggs a few months ago, and he has another patient who is 45 and had 9 or more miscarriages. She is now 38 weeks pregnant with her first baby.

I agree with continuing to try though because my next door neighbour's mother had her youngest sister at 48! Naturally of course back then...


I also have a friend that conceived late 45, delivered 46...

My RE has helped three woman, 45, 46, 47 have babies....

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.
