Youngest an "oops” when Nana was mid 40's

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, October 03, 2007 | 0 comments

OK, my mom's parents had 6 children. The youngest was an "oops baby” when Nana was in her mid 40's (I hope I take after her.) That oops baby, my Uncle John who is about 11 years older than me and 16 years younger than my mother is the sibling in my mom's family who keeps them all together by planning all the family celebrations. Everyone always ends up at his house for 9 out of 10 occasions.

Hi, I am 47 and 8 weeks pregnant. I conceived naturally, and each time I did conceive, it was when I had abundant cervical mucus. I had my daughter at 40 and she is great.

We tried off and on for about 4 years and 3 miscarriages later (1st two at 6 wks and last one at 10 weeks) to get pregnant, but it just didn't take. A couple of years ago I asked the OB if there was a possibility that I could still get pregnant. B

ased on a FSH blood test, he said that I was very close to menopause and that it would be a miracle for me to get pregnant. Well, I have been given a miracle.

I am sure at 40, you can have healthy and beautiful babies. I move to a new house and every afternoon I saw a lady walking with twins boys. I always look at her and I made my own story about her. That is the grandma of the twins.

Oh boy! what mistake. The lady was the mother of the twins, and she have them at 45, almost 46 years old. The twins are around 3 years old, so the lady is close to 50 and she look older than that. My point is that it is possible being mother at 45, and have healthy kids.

Women are very healthy these days, my friend had her baby in June at the age of 43, nearly 44. To look at her you would think she was more like a 30 year old. She wanted to get her degree first, etc.


But just wanted to say you all to please hang in there. My best friend from high school, who is 42, just called me to tell me she is pregnant. I was so happy for her and yet a little sad for myself.

She just decided she wanted to get pregnant after 15 years and Boom, it happened. And she is over 40, and my cousin, 44, just had a baby girl. I hope this can bring some source of hope for you all. It can still happen... No matter what they say.

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.
