My grandmother got pregnant at 46

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, February 22, 2008 | 0 comments

My grandmother did get pregnant at age 46, over 35 years ago.


My Mum was 44 when she had me (and Hitler committed suicide when he heard that I was about to arrive). Can't say that I noticed her age.

Yer Mum is just yer Mum, isn't she. I wasn't orphaned until I was 41.


I'm 47, my daughter is 7 months old. She was a dream come true, after years and years and years.... - Margaret


Count me in. I'm 46 with a 26, 23, 18, 13, 10, 7, and 3 month old.

Typing with one hand, my daughter is squirming in the other!


Thought I would pop by and say "Hello". I haven't been around for a few months, I took some time off, but now I am back!

I'm 46, and just found out that we are expecting a very surprise #4, and my 3rd over 40 baby. My youngest turned 4 in February, so we really thought we were done with babies, but guess not!

My Husband is still in denial, and hasn't mentioned it since I told him a week ago!

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.
