Dear Abby

Dear Abby;
My parents had a “bonus baby” when they were in their early 40's. I was 17 and my brother was 13 when we found out.

Dear Abby;
I was pregnant with twins at 45 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 anyway. I’m so glad I did.
-- Unexpected Surprise in Texas

Dear Abby;
I was 42, 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 that everything would be OK. My pregnancy and delivery were the best of all three, and my little girl has been a blessing to everyone.

Dear Abby;
At 44, my mother announced to her doctor that she might be pregnant with her seventh child. Without bothering to examine her, he informed her she was going thru the change. A few months later, Mom returned and said, "If I am not pregnant, what is moving around in my stomach?" That was me!

Dear Abby;
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, that she should dry her eyes and thank God. I was 46 when the same thing happened to me. And my own mom was 48 when I was born.

The Evening Independent - Nov 30, 1968
Dear Abby;

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.
