She was 48 when she had her twin boys

Thought I would share with you my experience tonight of meeting a women who was 48 when she had her TWIN boys.

My husband and I went to the mall this evening so I could get my glasses fixed and let my little guy get tuckered out at the indoor playground. Well, my son was rough housing with this other little boy and I went to chat with him when the child’s mother came up to me.

We started chatting and she noticed I was pregnant and asked me when I was due etc.....anyway she told me she had her twins at 48 !!!!!!! Her and her DH are married for 23 years and tried and tried but they both resolved themselves to being without children when low and behold she found out she was pregnant at 48!

They love their little guys , had no evasive testing done when she was pregnant and were shocked to find out they were having twins.

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.
