Go for it! I had my 2nd child at 41, and did have a harder time conceiving this baby. I will be 45 when I deliver, EDD10/28. I have had such an easy pregnancy so far. I did have amnio with this pregnancy, due to the fact that I had 2 prior miscarriages. Good luck with you baby and any future little ones! - Tammy

A year ago I gave birth to my first baby, a beautiful boy named Jacob Daniel. I was 44 years old. Like you I had been wondering about having another. It would be great to give Jacob a sibling. I loved being pregnant. I came to the conclusion that I would love to have another baby and my younger husband (he's 35) and I are leaving it up to fate.


I am still breastfeeding twice a day (Jacob is slowly weaning himself) so that might be holding things up a bit, but my cycles returned about 3 months ago so I am hoping for good luck soon. A baby is always hard work, but well worth it. I am so happy and thankful that I was able to conceive, carry and deliver a happy healthy baby at my age and would be ecstatic if it were to happen again. Good luck to you whatever you decide.

Did you take progesterone? I've heard women talk about taking it, but never asked my dr. He is not an RE, he's a regular OB/gyn and delivered my son. He told me of two women he personally delivered for, and both were over 46. Healthy pregnancies too.

I will be 45 March 21 and I am 9 weeks pregnant with baby #13. Of those 13 pregnancies, I have had 3 miscarriages. Since I was 35, I have had 6 pregnancies and 3 healthy baby boys. My last baby was born two months before my 42nd birthday.

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.
