Pregnant at 47 years old

I am pregnant at 47 years old.

Is there anyone out there who also had their first child at 47/48 years old?

I am in need of some advice...


One of my grandmothers was 48 years old when she had my Aunt, who is only one month older then I am.

She also had at least two other children in her 40s, with no medical help.

I'm holding on to this information as increasing my chances.

Good Genes and all!


My grandmother's sister gave birth at 43 years old (surprise baby), after they told her for over 13 years she would never have a second child.


One woman I know had her first child at the age of 49 years

-- Many women today dream of having it all -- a challenging career, a satisfying personal life, a loving mate, and a baby whenever they're ready.

But there's no denying the fact that their biological clocks are ticking away.
The odds of conceiving drop by 15 to 20 percent for a woman in her early 30's and plummet to less than 50 percent when she's in her 40's.

The good news is that there are a host of natural strategies every would-be mom can use today to preserve and optimize her fertility, so that she can conceive quickly and easily when she's ready.

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.

    Hi there,
    Just picked up this post, and wondered how you are doing. I'm 47 (48 in March) and have just found out that I am pregnant. Would be great to chat more....
