My cousin got a surprise pregnancy at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, May 06, 2008 | 2 comments

My 44 year old cousin (now 45) got a surprise pregnancy at 44 and delivered her new son at 45. There is no rhyme or reason, it just is.

And she felt bad because she knows some many women, like us and she just came up positive...


I have a healthy active 27 month old daughter who was born in Jan 2005 when I was 44.


Wow, I think you have us all beat. I'm 43, will be almost 44 when my baby is born in October. - Michelle


Pregnant at 52... IVF [in vitro fertilization] with donor eggs. Just found out, so I am keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well.

I have two other children from previous marriage... Much older - 21 and 23 so I am starting all over again, and couldn't be more excited!!!


I'm Patty 48, mom of 3 boys. Bill 24, James 4 and Matthew 22 months. I was a young mom, and now an old mom..... It's great.

I don't feel old, just tired sometimes !!

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
