Mom was 46 when my brother was born

And as far as being in peri-menopause - my mom was 43 when I was born and she was 46 when my brother was born.

I guess it's never too late. I just don't know if I would have the physical strength and mental fortitude to have a child at that age.

My mom was great though. She was patient and loving - but then again she told me once that her fifties were the happiest time of her life. She sailed right thru menopause.

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.
