Stock Photo credit: lonniehbAugust 22, 2005 - 'Your body might be better prepared for pregnancy when you are younger, but your mind is better prepared when you are older.'

That's Jill Sclaver's credo and one she is living to its fullest. At 43, she is pregnant with twins. She had her first daughter at 40.

A nurse in the labor and delivery unit at West Boca Medical Center, Sclaver has witnessed the growing number of women over 40 filling maternity wards.

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.
