She got pregnant at 52

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Monday, March 17, 2008 | 0 comments

My husband's high school girlfriend got pregnant at 52, and gave birth to triplets, three little girls.

(I know you're thinking fertility drugs, but no, multiples run in her family, and older mothers are more likely to have a multiple birth. I'm thinking that she thought she was past all that, as we women tend to do, but was wrong.)

Anyway, the older parents of my anecdote have plenty of money, and are delighted with the wild, unexpected turn that their life has taken.

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.
