A lady at work had twins at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, November 06, 2007 | 0 comments

I worked with a lady that had twins at age 44. She is a wonderful mother.

My mother had 6 children before me. Dad had a vacectomy, and mom got pregnant 3 years later with me! Then dad had another, and yet again 3 years later mom got pregnant with my younger sister. They said he must be one of those rare cases when a male has more then one tube, sounds strange doesn't it?

The doctors told him he should have had them cut, not tied as well. Anyways, when my mother was 41 they told he she couldn't have any more children, amazingly enough yet another 3 years passed as she became pregnant with baby #9, my little brother. She was 44 when she had Alastiar. She never thought she would be a mother of 9.

Our family is awesome, I have so many built in friends! I’m so blessed to have parents who didn't believe in abortion otherwise me, my sister Victoria or my baby brother wouldn't be here! Miracles do happen and I’m so glad to be called one. Good luck with you family. God bless.


I wanted to share some more "OVER 45!" stories. I went to a new OB/Gyn this week. He told me he just had a patient this week who is 48 years old and is having her first baby! He explained that he has also delivered 2 babies this last month to woman over 40. All natural... all no complications!!

I am starting TCM and acupuncture, and my TCM Dr. informed me that 2 woman, both who had numerous IVF's with no pregnancy, are now both pregnant!!! Both natural. One of the woman had been trying for a year doing TCM and was about to give up, when she was blessed with a baby!!!

I got married 1 month before turning 43, had baby 2 months before turning 44, pretty quick . The next one took longer. Pregnant 2 months before turning 46, had baby at 46 1/2... both healthy, both natural, Had some complications near end of pregnancy with both, but all turned out well. My 2 boys are healthy and normal and happy and I am having so much fun as a chunky mama (so I have gained quite a few lbs)They keep me going, and I love it.

I had my first marriage at 21 and first baby at 23... Well 16 years later, I got divorced... Married again at 43, and we wanted a family. Well now at 47 I have 3 beautiful boys, 24, 4 , and 16 months. I have more patience now with the 2 little ones than I had when I was young with my first. I love being a mom, and especially now as I am older, I really know what it means to enjoy your children.

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.
