Great Grandma - last one was at 51

I just found this out at my family reunion in June.

They talked about how she tried to hide her pregnancy from strangers, as she was embarrassed to be having kids *so late* because at that time it wasn't as common as it is now.

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.

    Being over 50 and pregnant--what were your symptoms that alerted you to the fact pregnancy?

Don't just sit there, reading this story or article - say something! Do you believe it? Do you think it is impossible? Do you wish it was you? Do you have a story to share (it might get published!)
