I'm 46 & just found out I'm pregnant

I'm 46, and just found out I am pregnant. This is my 4th, I have a 21, 18 and 7 year old. My husband is 41. There is always hope


For those of you who are 45 or 46. I had my first ultrasound yesterday and we are definitely a little pregnant. I will be 46 in two months. My husband is 46. He had testicular cancer and had righty removed. Lefty had a varicocele that was repaired. We tried 5 IUI's that didn't work.

The chances of us conceiving naturally are infinitely small. But we did. We only have a 50/50 chance to make it to term, but those are great odds compared to the chance that we would even get pregnant. Good luck to all.


I had my first child the month before I turned 41. Got pregnant first month trying. (Also got pregnant first month trying 3 months prior, but it ended in miscarriage). We decided to give him a sibling. I will be 44 next month. I tried for 6 months, and finally got pregnant again. I am almost 12 weeks. It's amazing at my age, but it can be done!


My sister will be 11 when my parents retire. They’re both retiring when my mom hits 55. Yeah, she’s the nut who had her first kid at 22, and her second at 44.


Sheona MacKenzie, 44, gave birth to her son Ryan just over a year ago after 10 cycles of fertility treatment.

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.
