My gran did it at 41 and 44

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Sunday, March 15, 2009 | 0 comments

I'm new to this site but just wanted to say I am 43 and got pregnant with my own eggs at 42.5.

Although we all know its more difficult as you get older I get really pissed off with the suggestion that having children over 40 is a modern thing when my gran did it in 1922 and 24 at 41 and 44 and my mum in the 60's with me at 41.

Because of the family history, I assumed it would be easy - ha ha ha - it wasn't but I got there.

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.
