At 47, I had a 4th child

My first child at age 34 was stillborn. Had a second at 35 and a third at 39.

Second child died at age nine, and at age 47 I had a fourth child. I'm now 55 with a 14 and a 7 year old.

I live in Northern California, so I was not -- by far -- the oldest mom for #2, or even for #3. Depending on where you wind up living, up to age 40, you'll probably be right in the swing of things among your friends.

Personally I think the complaints about energy come with #3 or #4 no matter how old you are.

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.
