Alison, New York, New York, Became a mom at 44, # Child: Olivia, 10 months

We decided to try, and we conceived right away. Luckily, my pregnancy was easy, and I felt great the whole time. (Of course, because of my age, I was advised to undergo all sorts of prenatal testing.) I delivered by C-section three weeks early because of some complications, but Olivia is perfectly healthy.

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.
