My friend, 43, just had a beautiful little girl

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, January 15, 2008 | 0 comments

My dear friend from college, age 43, just had a beautiful little girl 3 weeks ago, conceived completely naturally. She had medical support to stay pregnant. She had had numerous losses.


I was 42 when I conceived with my own eggs. I turned 43 in November. I will be giving birth in 5 weeks time, 3 weeks if I have a c-section.

My mother’s cousin was 45 when she conceived naturally. So don’t give up hope!


I conceived naturally, and had my first at 44 years, 11 months. Good luck.


I know of two women in my town who have unexpectedly found themselves pregnant with "bonus" babies.

One was 52 when she conceived, and the other had just turned 56!!! Both children were born perfectly healthy and are doing well.


Just wanted to let you know my cousin conceived naturally at 45, and gave birth at 46. She now has a healthy 3 year old baby girl.

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.
