Quite a few pregnant beyond 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, February 23, 2008 | 0 comments

Lisa, we tried to conceive for two years. Finally, I got pregnant, after I had given up hope completely.

I know quite a few women who got pregnant beyond 45. When the time is right, it will happen - no matter what "they" tell about your age...

My primary care doctor in West Virginia didn't have her first child until she was 45!!


Several women in my LLL [La Leche League] group are also 40 plus, and are just starting their families.

In my line of work, I am an RN [Registered Nurse], many of my colleagues were very negative.

The heck with them!! Follow your heart, listen to your gut feelings!!

My story is way back at the beginning of this long thread, so I also repeat that both my grandmother and great grandmother had their last children in their mid forties. Both healthy girls.

By the way..... I saw Adriane Barbeau on the news for an HBO [Home Box Office] party, and she reminded everyone that she had her twins at age 50. She looked great, by the way.

Hello everyone. I'm 47, with 3 offspring ages 14, 11 and 3. (A girl first and then two boys.)

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
