Your undoubted great shape and health will probably be in your favour.

I'm about 22 weeks pregnant now.

And I will be 46 years old, when the baby is born.

BEST of luck to you....I'm so happy for you.

-- There are a lot of reasons why women put off having children. In most cases, they prioritized their careers over their own personal life.

Others were just simply not ready for the commitment that motherhood demands. Becoming a mother is one of the most fulfilling jobs that everyone would be lucky enough to go through during their entire lifetime.

The problem is that despite the fact that this is seen by some as a gift, there are also others that see it as a tiring job – fulfilling but at some point, it can take a lot out of you.

The fact is that getting pregnant in your 40’s is no easy task. The probability of conceiving alone is quite low in comparison to women who are in their 20’s or early 30’s.

But this does not mean that a woman in her 40’s cannot bear a child. If you are in your 40’s and have found out that you are pregnant, there are a lot of things that you should prepare for.

Although there are a lot of articles and other written works that say that getting pregnant in your 40’s can lead to a lot of problems for both you and your child, there are still a couple of upsides to this situation.

We have an entire chapter dedicated to what you can look forward to when you are having a baby during this delicate age.

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.
