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 just had my third child at the age of 45 in April. I had her naturally, and I have many relatives in my family that had children over the age of 40.

    Hi Kathy my name is Dorothy and I live in WA state I read a issue of a magazine that claims women over 40 are so old that we wont have any more eggs over 44 and all these nice healthy ladies like myself are proving them wrong. Your story made my day. I am turning 44 this fall and have a healthy grown son from another marrige and Im looking forward to my next child.

    Hi Deserai2000,

    My daughter just turned 6 months on October 10th. She is 21 pounds, and 29 inches long. She is a very big baby. I have a 9 year and a 7 year old daughter too.
