She was having their 1ST child at 55

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Thursday, May 08, 2008 | 0 comments

My sister-in-law was in a childbirth class when pregnant with her youngest daughter (at age 41), and there was a lady there she said was about 55 and she and her hubby were having their FIRST child. Didn't know if it was natural or not - but looked healthy and happy pregnancy.

I never met any of these women who had babies at 50+ personally, but there are some, and more stories of course on this site!


My name is Carol, and I had my first child at age 43 (almost 44). My son Daniel is now 3 years old and I'm TTC [trying to conceive] my second child.


I am also an Older Mom - 52 and pregnant. Very excited though. Second marriage - husband was never married and wanted kids and so there you have it. I have two kids - 23 and 21, and really looking forward to this adventure. - Barb


I have to share that I have always had light period and it never stopped me from getting pregnant 8 times (I have 5 living children with the last being conceived naturally, and born when I was 43)

I even got pregnant at almost 45, when I had only had my period back for 6 months, and it was very light.


Every time I'm ready to give up, I think of Jodi and how she DID give up and 7 months later at 43, she is now 3 months pregnant.

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.
