My grandma had my auntie at 46

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, February 18, 2008 | 0 comments

My grandma had my auntie when she was 46, and that was 40 years ago. I am firmly convinced you will be fine.


I had my son, now 6 months old, at 44. No real problems, as our bodies are still capable. It's only now-a-days that we have the choices previous generations didn't have, re: when to stop.


My great grandmother had three children after the age of 50!!! One set of twins at 50, and a daughter at 52. She had 12 altogether and that was holy Catholic Ireland, where contraception was unheard of.


I have just found out I am pregnant at the age of 49!! Is anyone else out there my age? I feel shocked to say the least. Maybe my grandson came along to prepare me for my own little one!! (My daughter is here now, making sure I use all the appropiate abbreviations lol!)


My best and oldest friend, by sheer coincidence, had her two girls at 40 and 44. And my sister's best and oldest friend had two young, then twins at 49 'by mistake'....

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.
