I had a beautiful, healthy baby boy 6 weeks before I turned 44 years old.

I am currently 30 weeks pregnant with another baby boy.

I will be 46 1/2 years old when he is born on June 24th.

At 43 years old, it only took me 3 months to get pregnant.

It did take a lot longer this time.

We actually tried for over a year, then went to an RE [Reproductive Endocrinologist].

I had 2 IUI's [Intrauterine insemination] done, with no success.

Then the first month we really did not try (because of a cyst), I got pregnant naturally about 8 weeks before my 46th birthday.

I will do my darndest to stay young and fit and healthy, to keep up with these two little boys.

My husband is in great shape too, and he just turned 48 years old.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I, too, have heard so many stories from people who have had children in their 40s.

I can remember years ago, when I heard a gal I knew was 47 years old and having a baby, and I thought, my goodness.

Well, here I am at 43 years old, going to be 44 years old when I deliver, doing it myself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A lady at our church conceived naturally when she was 45 years old.

She went to the doctor thinking it was her menopause! LOL

Her son is now 11 years old.

Her three older children are 25, 23 and 19 years old!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In 1925, my grandmother had my father when she was 45 years old.

He was her twelfth child.

She had given birth to a child every two to three years, so my aunt was born when grandma was in her 40s... possibly 42 years old.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am 43 years old and 9 weeks along.

There will be 10 years between my older daughter and this new baby.

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.
