Several friends have had babies at 39, 40 & 45

I had baby #7 at age 39 and I'm pregnant again at 42. I have several friends who have had babies at 39, 40 & 45! My sister-in-law had her first at age 43. Michelle Duggar had #16 at age 39.

I do not think it's rare to have a baby at 40+, just discouraged. Make sure you are healthy and have a positive attitude, and lots of prayer... That certainly helps!

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.
