Mom's sister had an unplanned pregnancy in her mid-40s

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Friday, November 30, 2007 | 0 comments

In my own family, on both my mother's and father's side by the way, women have had babies in their 40's (my father's mother at age 40, and my mother's mother at age 41 and 45 - and this was in the 1940s, well before any fertility treatments were available of course).

In addition, my mother's sister had an unplanned pregnancy in her mid-40s *after* having been told by her doctor that she had already entered menopause!

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.
