Pregnant long after they thought they could

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, March 07, 2008 | 0 comments

Women have also become pregnant long after they thought they could. This includes women in their 50-60's. It is much less likely after the woman has hit age 50 or so, but certainly not impossible.

Again, depending on the woman's hormonal system and analysis, she might be incapable of conceiving at age 45 or 48, while others could conceive as late as the 60's.


Well I finally went to a fertility specialist, and discussed using donor egg due to my age 44. My sister wants to donate her eggs to me. Due to her age 27 and being very fertile she has been able to have son and twins. To my surprise I had not had my period thinking menopause?!!

I did two pregnancy test and are positive. No fertility treatment. I only took Fertility Blend for 3 months. I know I have an up hill battle but I will be taking it day by day. This site has been my encouragement to not give up. I pray for all women who are trying to conceive and are having it hard. I have a lot of testing to done starting tomorrow. Please keep posting I have learned so much from all of you ladies.


I am 44 years old, and had my first baby on April 12, 2006. I used no fertility drugs. I had gone to a fertility specialist, but was told my eggs were not viable. My husband was not comfortable with the options he gave us. Then to our surprise, five months later we were pregnant. She is healthy, happy and beautiful.


Yes, I just turned 44 and am still reeling from the news of my pregnancy. This will be our 5th gift from God!


But Dr. Davis is quick to add: “I’ll be the first to admit that 50 is an arbitrary age since you can have a 52-year-old in excellent health who could successfully become pregnant, and someone, at 38, who should not.”

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.
