Girlfriend got pregnant at 52

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, November 11, 2009 | 2 comments

My husband's high school girlfriend got pregnant at 52 and gave birth to triplets, three little girls. (I know you're thinking fertility drugs, but no, multiples run in her family, and older mothers are more likely to have a multiple birth. I'm thinking that she thought she was past all that, as we women tend to do, but was wrong.)

Anyway, the older parents of my anecdote have plenty of money and are delighted with the wild, unexpected turn that their life has taken.

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.

    My PG tests are either blank (weird) or say "not pregnant" have taken 4 all together. OB/GYN didn't want to do blood test bc the rate is so low for women my age, but my nipples are tender, and boobs rather large. I am craving chocolate and very tired. Could it just be early menopause?

    I'm around the same age. Have had morning sickness, cravings, tenderness in breasts (including nipples) seem to have gone up a size, and have tested negative twice the other tests were not legit because they came back with a "blank" message. Doc doesn't want to give me a blood test bc he says too rare for women my age. I doubt I'm preggars but just wanted to share. Also, very tired and not sure when my period is due. Could it be menopause?
