My 54y cousin gave birth to her 1st child

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, February 06, 2008 | 0 comments

As for being pregnant over 50, my 54 year old cousin gave birth on May 24th to her first child. She was in the hospital on bed rest for over 2 months, and was originally due July 5.

As far as I know the baby was naturally conceived. We learned of the pregnancy around Thanksgiving, and it was a big shocker! Thanks, I know it's not impossible, improbable maybe, but not impossible to become pregnant when you're in your fifties.

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.
