My friend had her 1st baby at 45

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, May 16, 2008 | 0 comments

My friend had her first baby at 45, conceived naturally.

A relative of my husband was the oldest woman ever to give birth at our local maternity hospital aged 49, again conceived naturally.

One of my college roommates had her one and only baby quite late…. A result of waiting for the right moment to come, as well as unfortunate circumstances …..


She’s now almost 50 and her daughter is 4 1/2…… Technically old enough to be a grandmother!

My mother had her last healthy baby at 45 and her last pregnancy at 47!


I have friends who had babies in their 40's - one started at 42 and had 3 one year after the other (all normal and healthy).

I'm 43 and am 35 weeks pregnant with our first child. I was quite fit and healthy at the beginning of the pregnancy and this has stayed with me throughout.


On the scale of things, I've had a lovely pregnancy so far: just occasional nausea in the first trimester, one night of acid reflux in the second and a week of leg cramps in the third.

I'm as anxious as any other first timer, but more grounded than ever before in myself. I love my husband and we're both delighted to be having a baby. His support means everything right now.

I don’t think you are old at 43. My God, my friend's mum had her last at 55, and that is the honest truth. She had a beautiful girl, and was all healthy.


Then my younger friend had a Down Syndrome baby, and she was 20. So please, I really don’t believe in this **** that the older you are, the more sick your child can be .

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.
