Turns out she was pregnant at 47

I also know a woman in our area who was diagnosed infertile after years of treatment and went on to adopt a child at age 40. When she was 47, she began to develop symptoms that she assumed were signs of menopause - turns out she was pregnant. Amazingly, the doctors did not detect the pregnancy until she was about to give birth. She delivered a healthy baby boy.

I think stories like these prove that not only is pregnancy after 45 possible, it may be more common than we think. At least that's what I'm hoping as I'm 47 and would love another baby.

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.
