Spent the holiday with some wonderful friends of ours. Although I was hesitant to mention our desire to have a baby (we are both over 50 with grandchildren), they got talking about their several miscarriages (they are in their late 40's) and so I chimed in about the miscarriages I had (last one being three years ago)... so they figured it out, that we wanted to have a baby.

They both thought we were definitely not too old... and told us of other couples who they knew that had babies in their late forties up to mid-fifties, the husband said one in their 60's and then the wife chimed in and said Sarah in the Bible was around age 80 when she conceived/ gave birth to Isaac. It was the most amazing thing, they prayed for us.

And then the wife recommended a book called "Supernatural Pregnancy" .. and she is going to get her copy for me from a friend she loaned it to... She says she has never known of anyone who did not get the most wonderful pregnancy and baby after following the principles in this book (in her own case she had a completely pain-free childbirth with a short 2 hour labour experiencing only pressure) They are going to keep praying for us... so should these prayers be answered, I will be adding my over-50 story to this list. I wish everyone we knew was so positive about having babies later in life.

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.
