February 18, 1986 - A 46-year-old woman told doctors there was absolutely no chance she could be pregnant.

But less than 48 hours later, she gave birth to a new son on her bedroom floor.

I can't even think of a word to describe how I felt when I saw the baby laying there, said Lois Grimsley, who gave birth shortly after noon Sunday to a 5-pound 14-ounce son, Marcus Brice.

He was crying and spitting out mucus.

Mrs. Grimsley complained of stomach pains shortly before the birth, but doctors diagnosed a urinary tract infection and hemorrhoids as the cause.

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.
