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.

    i would love to try and have a baby at this age, i am 45 now so if all goes well and i fall pregnant i will be 46 when i have one. The only thing that i would like to ask mothers of this age is, how easy is it to fit in with the other mothers at the children's school and will we be able to have the energy we use to have? Please give me some feedback.

    Has anyone come across an 18 year age gap between siblings and what is it like? I have an 18 year old and a 15 year old and am thinking of having another one in my mid forties.

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
