Recently at my list Over40Mommies a woman joined who is 50 or 51 years old, and also has older children.

She now is with a new husband who is in his 30s.

There is a history of several mature pregnancies in her family.

Most notably her maternal grandmother who gave birth to her uncle at 54 years old.

Her grandmother had many births at home, but she decided to go to the hospital for the birth of the uncle who was perfectly healthy.

So she doesn't feel she is too old.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I have done a lot of genealogy research along with my girlfriend (on her family).

We found there were SO MANY natural oops babies in their late forties and early 50s.

Keep up the hope ladies!

Then to top it off, another woman on my list who has had children at 40, 42 and 44 years old herself was talking to a nurse in her doctor's office.

The nurse told a story of a woman who, at 56 years old, came in complaining of weight gain and abdominal discomfort.

She had not had a cycle in years so they didn't think pregnancy at first.

They did a number of tests for other things, only to discover she was actually pregnant and nearly 6 months along!!

She had a healthy baby girl three months later.

Her husband was in his 60s.

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.
