Image: Face of an old lady - Photo Credit: Piotr Rudziewicz on freeimages.comI can't relate to being an over 50 mom, but I'm the daughter of an over 50 mom. I'm #7, arriving when my mom was 55, and her second menopause baby!

Most of our nieces and nephews were older than us, except two were born within 8 months of me!

My sisters said what was weird was being pregnant when Mom was, and she didn't go crazy over the grand-kids as much as their in-laws did.

I was so lucky to have her for 40 years after my birth. My older kids loved her sooo much.

For what it's worth, in this conversation:

My very good friend had an unplanned pregnancy when she was 44 years old.

She had no idea what her FSH was [follicle stimulating hormone].

She delivered her son when she was 45 years old.

I know that doesn't necessarily resonate with some of us here.

She might not have had high FSH, and she did have other children many years previously.

Her son is 16 years younger than his closest in age sister, and she wasn't struggling with TTC [trying to conceive].

But I just wanted to share my friend's experience to show the anonymous poster's choice of analogy is not "realistic."

Hi, I am Erna, 48 years old. Traveling used to be my passion and I never found time to settle down.

Finally, at the age of 40, I meet my husband and found piece of mind. Neither of us had been married before or had children.

We briefly thought about having children but dismissed the thought by thinking we were too old anyway.

After all, you did not hear or read a lot about women who became mother after 40, the whole society is focused on younger mothers.

Anyway, to our great surprise I turned out to be pregnant at the age of 47, I only found out after about 2 months.

I had the luck that I was seeing a great doctor, and he gave me lot of confidence.

After 42 weeks, labor started naturally and a beautiful healthy baby boy was born.

I never dreamed that a child could give such joy to your life and now I sometimes regret that I did not go for it earlier, but that is life, you take it as it comes and it is no guarantee that you would have been happier if you had acted differently.

My son is one and half years old now, and I still enjoy every day!

I am from Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Image: The Secret Diary of a New Mum Aged 43 1/4, by Cari Rosen. Publisher: Vermilion (September 12, 2011)The Secret Diary of a New Mum Aged 43 1/4
by Cari Rosen

-- Whatever your age, becoming a mum for the first time brings with it excitement, anxiety and numerous challenges.

But how do you cope when, to top it all, you discover you are old enough to be the mother of everyone else in your NCT group?

The story of one woman, one new baby, a slipped disc and rather too many wrinkles, The Secret Diary of a New Mum (Aged 43 1/4) follows the tale of a midlife mum as she tries to make the transition from experienced TV producer to utterly inexperienced parent.

One in five babies is born to a mum over 35, and the number of over 40's giving birth has doubled.

The first humorous narrative account of what it's really like to be a midlife mum - whether it's deftly side-stepping any questions about age and baby number two or weeping as younger counterparts ping back into their size ten jeans within thirty seconds of giving birth.

This is the thoroughly entertaining, insightful and often hilarious account of what happens as you face up to menopause and new motherhood at the same time.

Subject: when does a woman’s fertility end?

A woman's fertility ends when she goes in to menopause and stops getting her period.

The chances are of her getting pregnant at 47 or 49 would depend on this.

If she is still having a menstrual cycle, then YES she could get pregnant.

Older women get pregnant all the time.

Image: Stock Photo credit: Pregnancy, by Nancy LowrieI am 50 years old, and 13 weeks pregnant with my 5th child. I conceived naturally, and will be 51 years old when my son is born.

I am using a midwife, and have no health issues whatsoever, even given my "advanced maternal age"!!

That phrase cracks me up. I don't even have elevated blood pressure. Was/am athletic, still ride my bike, although have recently switched to a ladies' version for ease of dismount because I got hit big time with relaxin, and for safety.

It's been 18 years since I last gave birth, so this is still pretty mind-boggling to me, but this child is very much wanted, and I'm not at all intimidated by the idea of giving birth at my age, and after an 18 year gap between this one and my last child.

I'm not a high risk pregnancy, and a lifetime of living healthy I'm sure has contributed to how great I feel. But even if a woman finds herself pregnant or trying to get pregnant after 40, it's never too late to start eating right, and exercising.

Baby dust to all those trying, and sticky dust to all of us having already conceived!! Thanks!! Laura

An In-depth Guide for a Safe and Healthy Pregnancy Over 40
by Kelley D Smith

-- There are a lot of reasons why women put off having children. In most cases, they prioritized their careers over their own personal life.

Others were just simply not ready for the commitment that motherhood demands. Becoming a mother is one of the most fulfilling jobs that everyone would be lucky enough to go through during their entire lifetime.

The problem is that despite the fact that this is seen by some as a gift, there are also others that see it as a tiring job – fulfilling but at some point, it can take a lot out of you.

The fact is that getting pregnant in your 40’s is no easy task. The probability of conceiving alone is quite low in comparison to women who are in their 20’s or early 30’s.

But this does not mean that a woman in her 40’s cannot bear a child. If you are in your 40’s and have found out that you are pregnant, there are a lot of things that you should prepare for.

Although there are a lot of articles and other written works that say that getting pregnant in your 40’s can lead to a lot of problems for both you and your child, there are still a couple of upsides to this situation.

We have an entire chapter dedicated to what you can look forward to when you are having a baby during this delicate age.

Both pregnancies were relatively easy.

No morning sickness, high blood pressure or gestational diabetes.

My worst symptoms were exhaustion, reflux and itchy tummy.
