Oldest woman on this board had natural oops at 48

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, June 15, 2008 | 6 comments

I had my first (and only so far) at 43.

I'm 47 now and TTC (trying to conceive) number two. My theory has always been that we'll keep trying until "the last egg drops."

And based on my older sisters, I have until at least age 54.


I have been posting on this board for years since my last successful "over 40" pregnancy, and I must say there have been plenty of moms 44+ so do not give up hope.

The oldest woman on this board had a natural "oops" at 48!! She delivered a healthy baby boy.

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.

  1. I'm so happy that I found this site. I'm 46 with no kids. I am now at the age of wanting a child of my own. I have nieces and nephews but now want my own. I don't know why I waited to have the thought of conceiving when I've reached this age but I now have super hope after reading your site. I know they say today that the 40's are the new 30's and I feel that to be so true. I still feel young and look you but except for that age thing, I feel I am ready to try this.

    Thanks for giving me the hope and positivity I needed to go through with this. I thought it would be the act of God for this to happen; well a miracle from HIM. LOL!
