Had her 5th 2 weeks shy of 44

My mother had her fourth at 38 and her 5th (me) at 2 weeks shy of 44. Back then there was no genetic testing. Many women in my neighbourhood had their last babies in their 40's.

My mother told me her obstetrician never gave her gloom and doom, but told her it was her 5th child, she had delivered 4 healthy children already and she being pregnant again meant she was strong and healthy. The trend now is more and more women are becoming older moms.

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.
