Dear Abby;
I was pregnant with twins at 45 years old, and my then-18-year-old daughter was furious with me, going as far as banning me from her high school graduation. It hurt, and I agonized over the decision, but in the end, I waddled in any way. I am so glad I did.
-- Unexpected Surprise in Texas

Dear Abby;
I was 42 years old with children ages 12 and 17, when we were surprised by an unplanned pregnancy. We were concerned, of course, with the statistics for a complicated pregnancy, so we had the testing done and trusted everything would be OK. My pregnancy and delivery were the best of all three, and my little girl has been a blessing to everyone.

I am 44 years old and pregnant, but that's not my problem. I have had 27 children.

The Deseret News - Jan 9, 1969
Dear Abby;
Tell that 44-year-old woman who cried her eyes out and blamed her husband when she discovered she was pregnant, she should dry her eyes and thank God. I was 46 years old when the same thing happened to me. And my own mom was 48 years old when I was born.

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.
