His wife in mid 50's with last child

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, May 27, 2008 | 0 comments

What about countries in the Caribbean where ART [assisted reproductive technologies] is non-existant for the most part, and women continuously have children with their own eggs well over 40 and 50? My own grandpa had his last child at 80 with his wife, who was in her mid 50's. I mean, my grandpa and his wife doing IVF [in vitro fertilization] ? That's a laugh and with DE [donor egg] to boot?

She wouldn't even know what the heck a DE was. I mean, these people ran a farm. And her 3 other kids were definitely under 10 in a picture that I have of them all. That woman started having kids in her 40's.


I just had to say, my cousin is 42 and pregnant. Well, she called me yesterday, and her sister is pregnant too!! She is 47 years old.

So my 42 year old cousin is due: October 7 or 8.

And my 47 year old cousin due........... AUGUST 27. Stinker waited to tell us!!!

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.
