Grandma was in her 50's with last child

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, May 07, 2008 | 0 comments

I'd like you to know that my grandfather had his last child at 80 while his wife was in her 50's. No ART [assisted reproductive technologies], nothing, just good old fashioned sex, the good old fashioned way.

That baby, a girl is now a happy, snazzy 25 year old, who just got married. It was really cool seeing the pictures of her hugging my 70 year old mom and her 70 something year old sister in the wedding pics.

And at that time people were still not doing pregnancy checkups. You just got pregnant and had the baby, sometimes twins or more.

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.
