Image: Expecting But Not ExpectantSeptember 25, 1983 - In Fridley, Minn., Cathy Montain had figured that, at age 44, it wasn't too late to quit smoking.

She thought the lack of cigarettes was what was making her waistline expand.

But one morning last week, she found out she wasn't too old for something else, and an hour later gave birth to a healthy 7-pound, 9-ounce girl.

You can either laugh or cry. And we are laughing, said Montain.

She and her husband, David, a state highway designer have five other children.

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.
