My cousin had a little girl at 46

Thanks for the stories. They always give me hope. My cousin got pregnant naturally at age 45 and had a little girl at age 46. She is now a healthy 3 year old. It can happen.


I just found out at a reunion in June that my great grandmother had her 9th child at 52. She was actually embarrassed, and hid the pregnancy by wearing big clothes, etc., as others her age were not in the same situation. She had two children in her forties.


I went to a funeral a couple of weeks ago (my sister-in-law's mother). She was 93 years old and had 11 living children, with her last when she was 45.


One woman in Portland, Ore., delivered a baby at age 57 after conceiving the old-fashioned way. So women who don't want to get pregnant should continue to use contraception until they are definitely postmenopausal.


We breathed a sign of relief when our daughter seemed to get through the 2's so easily, but then her sister arrived when she was 2.5 and it really hit us hard. Now she is 3.5 it all seems so be so much calmer.

They are playing together and laughing is so much better. Grace is 3.5 Isabella just 1 and Me 46. Wouldn't change it for the world or and my husband just turned 50...

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.
