46, 45, 43, 44y gave birth last year

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, March 22, 2008 | 1 comments

I too am 47, and am trying to conceive. My best friend (46) just had a baby (from North Dakota) and everything was fine.

Just in my small community we have a 46, 45, 43 and 44 year old give birth this last year, and their babies were fine. None of them underwent testing, because they would not terminate.

I gave birth to my last at age 40, after my husband had a vasectomy reversal.


I had a healthy baby girl last September at 44. We opted for Early Risk Assessment (ERA) for the genetic screening. It was non-invasive, and although it only told us probabilities regarding genetic disorders, it was enough to help us relax and enjoy a healthy pregnancy.

I have had experience with cheap pregnancy test, two came back what they call "inconclusive" and took a third one the next day "First Response" and that positive sign showed up in 30 seconds.

I was 44 when I conceived my son. I just turned 46 in December. I have no other children, not by choice, it just never happened. I remarried three years ago, younger man, and got pregnant.

I was told I would not get pregnant, because my eggs were immature producing a nearly no existence period until I turned 40.. Then they decided to mature I guess, and started having regular periods.

Go figure... by the way my son just turned one year old on Sunday also.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! - Pauline


If you have regular cycles and no outward signs of menopause, then I think that you have lots of hope.

My step grandma had her last child in her mid 50's with no intervention whatsoever, and from the pic of her younger ones I think she had those in her mid to late 40's.


My grandmother had her last child when she was 49 years old naturally.

However, she had 12 children before that, so it may have been easier. She was always happy and serene, different culture and different times with no career, etc. but certainly home stress to contend with.

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.
