Image: Baby Boy Under Scrutiny, by Kyle and Kelly Adams, on FlickrYou said the doctor said the oldest to have a baby was 48 years old.

Well, I'm 49 years old, and just had a healthy baby boy two weeks ago today.

I wasn't trying to get pregnant, I actually thought I was too old, it just happened.

My oldest is 27 years old, then 25 years old, 16 years old and now just two weeks.

When I found myself pregnant, I went looking for others near my age, and I can tell you there aren't many.

I've been on the Whattoexpect.com website and found quite a few in their 40s, but I am the oldest on that forum at 49 years old.

Someone responded to a survey being 52 years old, but never actually admitted who they were.

There's also a 52 year old woman in my area, who is expecting twins.

I haven't heard an update lately, but last I heard she was doing OK.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: The Garden of Fertility: A Guide to Charting Your Fertility Signals to Prevent or Achieve Pregnancy--Naturally--and to Gauge Your Reproductive Health, by Katie Singer. Publisher: Avery Trade (April 22, 2004)The Garden of Fertility: A Guide to Charting Your Fertility Signals to Prevent or Achieve Pregnancy--Naturally--and to Gauge Your Reproductive Health
by Katie Singer

-- A guide to using fertility awareness - that is, reading fertility signals in order to prevent or achieve pregnancy.

Certified fertility educator Katie Singer explains how to observe and chart fertility cycles to determine when a woman is most fertile to increase chances of conception, or to exercise birth control naturally - a method that, when followed precisely, is as effective as the Pill.

Unlike other books on fertility awareness, The Garden of Fertility also describes how to use the charts to gauge gynecological health and offers non-medical options for strengthening reproductive wellness.

This book provides all the information women never learned in sex education class, but should have.

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.
