My grandmother had her 6th at 47

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, February 17, 2008 | 0 comments

My grandmother had her 6th and last at 47. Spontaneous pregnancy. She thought she was having the menopause. She gave birth to a healthy baby boy at home after a 45 minute labour.

He's in his 50's now, and a physician and father himself. She was VERY shocked, needless to say.


I had my last boy, who is now 9, when I was 44. There was a 12 and 17 year gap between my others. Total shock!

I had just started a new job, and had all the tests. I worked until 2 days before he was due, blood pressure stayed static the whole time and apart from putting on mega weight, I blossomed.


My mum's friend had a lovely boy (now a lovely man) at the age of 48. Good luck.


I just had my second son at 41, and "Elibean" had her second daughter at 46. Good luck!


I know someone who got pregnant at 52, and had a healthy baby. She is trying for another one now, and she is 54. Good luck & best wishes to you

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.
