My mom, had her 11th child at 45

And count me in as choosing not to have kids after 35 (well, choosing not to have any at all, actually), because I don’t want to be like my mom, having her 11th child at the age of 45, and she’ll be ready to retire by the time he leaves home…

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.
