I conceived at almost 45 years old, and had a beautiful 9 lb 10 oz boy about 9 months later. I had a CVS test, just to know if I should be preparing myself for a special needs child, but did not find out the sex.

Though I was sicker then a dog the whole pregnancy, I cherished the fact that I was pregnant at all, and that the baby was healthy.


My husband and I are doing Bradley classes to prepare to for a natural birth. I am 44 and this is my first baby, so I have had no birth experience at all one way or the other.


I am a 45, almost 46 yr old mom who got pregnant after my husband had a vasectomy! I have two 21 year old boys, an 8 and 6 year old girls.

Well, my surprise pregnancy ended with a surprise delivery at 36 weeks. Sunday I was not feeling too well, and ended up going to the hospital where they confirmed that I was in labour.

They tried to stop it with a shot, and that did slow it down for about 45 minutes but the contractions quickly escalated back to less than 5 minutes apart. About that time we decided that things were not going to stop quickly, so we had a friend come and pick up the girls. Just as they left my water broke, and just over a hour later we had our son Ryan Christopher in our arms. Though he was early - he was healthy.


If you have not gone into menopause yes, you can get pregnant. I was working at a pregnancy centre, and had a client that was 57 years old that came into our office pregnant.


If you haven't went through menopause then yes, [you can get pregnant], I have a lady friend who had a healthy baby boy at 52.

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.
