Two children, at 40 & a week before her 45th birthday

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, April 10, 2007 | 0 comments

I have twins sisters, aged 45. One has had IVF [in vitro fertilization] 6 times since the age of 40 which has produced 2 children, one at age 40 and the other one a week before her 45th birthday. The problem was her husband's sperm - he'd had a vasectomy years before and it wasn't a successful reversal.

She also has a twin sister who gave birth aged 21 and then at 44! She didn't do IVF and when she tried to get pregnant with the last baby, had only just started trying!

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.
