My grandmother had two children in her 40's. Her last was at 47 years old.

I only found that out a few years ago, and was very surprised.

She never seemed "too old" with my aunts and uncles!

Knowing that my own grandmother did it gave me inspiration to continue TTC [trying to conceive] into my 40's.

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.
