Happy Mistakes Over 40

I really am not worried about getting pregnant in my late 30's - 40's.

I went to Catholic school, and so many of my friends were "happy mistakes".

I know more than a handful whose Moms were at 42 - 43 years old when they were naturally conceived.

Additionally my first boyfriend's brother was naturally conceived when his Mom was 44 years old.

Plus my Mom's best childhood friend, a mentor of mine also and two neighbours all conceived at 40 - 45 years old naturally.

One thing I know about most of them they all were in top shape (mentally, spiritually, emotionally) led happy lives, had a good attitude, had stopped smoking or were non-smokers and were all normal weight range. (not too thin or fat)

Great site by the way!

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.
