"Be careful you might get pregnant"

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, March 28, 2008 | 0 comments

I am a teacher, and was complaining to "lunch lady" that my cycle was all messed up and that I was in peri-menopause. She said "Be careful, you might get pregnant."!

I had to laugh since everyone, at the least the fertility clinic, has been telling me the opposite! Anyway she went on to tell me about this relative and that relative that got pregnant in 40's and late 40's!!!HUH!!!!


When I was much younger (early 80's), I worked in an ice cream shop on weekends during high school. I was waiting on a boy once (about 11 or 12 years old) and asked him what his grandmother would like - she was talking to a friend, and not paying attention.

He said, "She's not my grandmother - she's my mom, she had me when she was 49". He must have heard his mom referred to as his "grandmother" pretty often because his response seemed well rehearsed.

So, ladies, having babies while you're well over 40, 45 is still possible.


My doctor is fantastic, but I want to try another protocol and he is open. He specializes in women over 40 in the west coast and has gotten women pregnant at 47 years old. I am 44, turning 45 soon.

I too lost a child (my first pregnancy) at 9 weeks, so I understand how it feels.

The good news is that 2 months later I was pregnant again, and am now 35 weeks along with an active healthy baby boy. I just turned 45 last Saturday and my husband is 48, with a 20 year old daughter from his previous marriage.

I don't know if you guys are planning to try again, but if you are I would say please do not give up because now you know that it is still possible.


I had a baby at 45, and it is possible. My son is now 5. I have a 45 year old midwifery client right now too. My thoughts and prayers are with you! Del

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.
