I will deliver my 4rth at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, December 04, 2007 | 0 comments

When I was married at 40, I was told it was unlikely I would have any children because of my age and "old" eggs. By taking Clomid, I had my first child at 41, my second at 42 and my third (just before) my 44th.

I always wanted 4 children so we began to discuss adoption (because now my eggs were "older"). My husband was reluctant to adopt. I did online research. Last month, in October, I bought Vitex (natural Clomid-like, Chaste berry) and took it between day 3-7 of my cycle.

It is November, and my pregnancy test is (+). I am 46, and will deliver my fourth at age 47!


I am a 49-year-old who is due August 7, 2004 with twins. - Dee


My mother was 45 when I was born, and my dad was 52. I was the ninth child.


My grandmother gave birth at the age of 48 in 1928 to my aunty. My aunty had six very healthy children, the last being born at the age of 41. Her last born has given birth to two healthy children.


My aunt is 48 years old... She has 3 year old twins and a month old baby girl.... So as long as you are healthy, you could have a baby at 80.

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.
