And one of my best friends in college was born to her parents -- who had been told they couldn't have children -- when her mom about just shy of 47!

I am 46 year old mom with 5 kids, and am pregnant..... I am feeling a little overwhelmed, and scared right now......


My boyfriend isn't very happy, and has two kids of his own.. We just moved in together and I am pregnant.......

He isn't very supportive, and I don't know what my kids will think.....anyway good luck with your pregnancy... It would be good to hear from you - Tamela

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.

    I'm just feeling depressed. I am 43 and I would've loved to have a baby, but work and financial problems have always been issues until I guess it's too late... How do you overcome this deep sadness? I am going through tough times of regret.

    I had two failed IUI. I always want to have baby with my own egg. I feel miserable of not having my own baby. Any one out there can help or give some advice of hope. Any hope of IVF? I'm 44 years. Some doctors will only use donor egg through IVF not my own egg.

    I'm going through tough times of regret.

    I am 46, I have 3 children 22, 15, 17, and have nog used birth control in 6 years.. I did have some chemical pregnancies, but have not even checked for that in years...but I just found out I am really pregnant only 5 weeks so we will see, but I have never made it to 5 weeks, so truly different, maybe it was a good egg? I will keep you posted.
