My midwives were very nonchalant about it. They serve clients from 17-48... and 48 just happens to be the oldest mama they've had as a client, not necessarily a limit for them.

The fact is as long as you have a period you can get pregnant and up to a year after your period stops ! I personally know someone who got a surprise blessing after her period stopped.

She is now a healthy teenager giving her mom grief LOL

I read something about the fact that, numerically, there are fewer pregnancies to women aged 40+ now (on average) then there were even thirty years ago. Is this because 40 year old + women today have suddenly LOST their fertility?

Hmm... makes NO SENSE when you consider that in most everything else we are biologically younger than our parents and grandparents were at the same age (my doc says we are almost ten years younger!)

No, it's because with the advent of cheap, reliable birth control, women have been able to plan their families better and many have *chosen* not to have children in their 40's. Our fertile capacity has not changed but our decisions to TTC have.

I asked about your OB's age, because any doc aged 40 and younger probably doesn't have any conception of how "normal" a 40+ pregnant woman really is!!!!!!!

I'm 41 years old and am just starting my 25th week of pregnancy with my third child.

My good friend had her 9th child at age 49 and I have a feeling she'll have even MORE children [she wants a really big family]. My grandma had her tenth at age 49.

Another woman I know had her FIFTEENTH at age 49.

I saw a woman on TV two days ago that had a baby at age 62 [IVF assisted] and everything went great.

Even though I'm 41, I'll take all the children the good Lord will send to me - I believe that if He wants you to have them, you'll have them.

Working with a Tufts Health Plan nurse case manager, member Carol Penney has healthy triplets. Imagine being a mother of three young daughters, and learning that you are pregnant with triplets at the age of 49.

In her 35th week of pregnancy—on March 28, 2005—Carol gave birth to the triplets by cesarean section: girls Emily and Brooke, and a boy, Troy.

“I had three healthy, beautiful babies,” she says. “It’s a miracle, and I’m very grateful.”

I had my first child at 40 and my second at 45, both at home, wonderful births.

When I called a friend to brag about being pregnant with my second at such an old age, she laughed and said she was 49 and pregnant with her second child while her first was already 10.

One of the mothers in Expecting Miracles is a South-African woman who tells the story of how her first pregnancy didn't come until age 49. But when she found out she was pregnant with twins she wasn't at all surprised.

A year before she conceived, her meditating husband had envisioned a boy and a girl who announced, "We are your unborn children."

These children continued to visit him on Shabbat and on the holidays - the girl outspoken, and the boy silent in his prayer shawl, until his wife conceived.

In response to your question, you've no doubt heard of "change of life" babies where unplanned pregnancies occurred when women thought their childbearing years were over.

While statistically there is less likelihood of becoming pregnant at this time, there are many exceptions. If you are certain you do not want to become pregnant, you will need to use birth control.

A woman's fertility falls after the age of 35, but many an older woman has been surprised when she has fallen pregnant with an unplanned baby in her late 40s or even early 50s.

Cherie Blair, the Prime Minister's wife, was certainly not alone in assuming that her fertility was negligible only to be surprised and delighted to be proved wrong.

Late pregnancy can and does happen, and for this reason it is important to get correct advice about contraception even beyond the menopause.

From Elza: I had my first child at age 42.5 and am now expecting our second, which will be due after I turn 46.

My first pregnancy went very well and I went the full 9 months to the day - labour 12 hours and a healthy 10.5 pound baby boy.

I'm hoping that if I follow the same guidelines I did last time, I will have another healthy baby.

I think I have finally found the Doctor for me. Don't have time to write much now, but just wanted to share with you all that she told me proudly that she delivered the baby of a 47 year old patient recently.

This woman had been trying for about 5 years. It was natural. She had more or less given up.

The fact that the Doctor was so pleased with this story made me feel she will be supportive of my TTC [trying to conceive] journey.

Do you honestly feel it is possible for you to get pregnant, or do you feel you are “too old”?

Remember, in the last 50 years, births to women over the age of 40 have increased 50 percent. In cultures where women have not been told that their eggs are too old, they are often able to conceive in their fifties and even in their sixties.

The Huichol Indians of Mexico are such a culture.
