My mother delivered me at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, June 19, 2007 | 0 comments

I delivered my first at 40 and am trying now to have another as I near 43. My mother delivered me at 44, and I'm the last her 6 (total 8 in the family).


My Chinese doctor told me as long as you are regular with your periods you can still conceive.


You are not too old to have a baby. My mom's friend was 47 when she had her little girl, and she didn't have any problems.


Good luck, keep trying. One of my sister's co-worker got pregnant on her own at age 47, and just had a healthy baby. Relax and pray.


My mother was born when my grandmother was 44, I was born when my mother was 34 and my father was 40, and at 37 1/2 I am trying for #2. My husband was born when his mom was 36.

Despite our "old" parents, we turned out wonderfully (a doctor and a lawyer no less). Everyone will love the baby irrespective of your age. If you can do it, go for it and I hope all of the nay-sayers eat crow!

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.
