Aunt Gloria had a "surprise" at 50

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, April 20, 2008 | 0 comments

My Aunt Gloria had a "surprise" at 50 -- a beautiful little girl who is about 30 this year.


My mother-in-law had her last little "surprise" at 46. That always gives me hope.


My mother had me when she was 44. It was considered a high-risk pregnancy, and my parents had 3 children that were all close or in the process of graduating from high school and moving out of the house...

There were some benefits of my mom's situation... I think I kept them young for a while longer, my sisters and brother were a lot of help because they were so much older, and I had a lot of the benefits of an only child financially and attention-wise.


I had my first child at 23...... Well, bad marriage divorce.... Then new marriage at 42....

I had 2 beautiful healthy normal boys in my 40's with my own eggs. Yes, it was a bit tougher on my body.

But now at 48, I have no problem keeping up with my 4 year old and 22 month old. - Patty


My mother had me in her late 30’s, and had two more kids after me. I remember asking my mother how old she was, and she would always say 29. She was 29 for years.

When my daughter was about 4, she asked me how old I was and out of my mouth came 29! Tonight I had to pick up a neighbour’s little boy from school, because she had to work late.

Now Lois had Blake when she was 47, and Blake is 7. I took my daughter and Blake to McDonald’s for dinner and some play. While eating Blake says to me ‘how old are you’, and my daughter says Mommy is 29. Blake says ‘my mother is a little older – she is 32’. I replied ‘OK’, but I was laughing inside.

I am 57 and my daughter Amelia will be 6 this Friday. Lois is 54. I guess neither of us is broadcasting our age. - Carol

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.
