My husband's mother was 44 when she had him

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, June 16, 2007 | 0 comments

My husband's mother was 44 when she had him, and his sister was 42 when she had a healthy boy. Be encouraged!


I was born when my mom was 45.


Age doesn't mean you're too old or not. It's all up to the way your body is. I have some friends who have 8 children, and didn't start having them until the woman was in her mid-thirties and the father was almost 40. And, of course, they're not stopping with #8! Go ahead and try. You'll only regret it if you never do.


My mom was 44 when she had me, and she hasn't had any regrets. I am now 24 and have a beautiful relationship with my parents who are STILL married. They got married later in life after bad relationships and wanted a baby. Maybe waiting helped me and them. It helped financially too.


I am the youngest of the 16 children, and my mother had me when she was 48 years, so I think there's a possibility you'll have a beautiful one like me. May God bless you.

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.
