My great-aunt had her 3rd daughter at 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, November 28, 2006 | 0 comments

My great-aunt was born in December, 1906. She married in 1928. She had 3 healthy daughters in 1936, 1947, and 1951.

So, she would have been 29, 40 and 44 when she had them. Strange for that time (8 years before even having the first baby and then they were several years apart), and there were obviously no fertility drugs.

This is all per a family history book I got at a family reunion.

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.
