Just in case you need an encouraging word, no, you are not too old!!

I am 48 years old and have three sons: 10, 9, and 5 years old.

So, I was 43 years old when the youngest was born.

All three were high risk because of my age, and had scary numbers, but we opted not to have amniocentesis done for any of them.

The only thing wrong with any of them is that they are WILD, messy, bug-eating, noisy boys!!

They were all born via C-section after unproductive labors; otherwise, everything was just fine.

If your age is your worry, I hope you'll think of this old geezer with YOUNG children who are healthy enough to drive her crazy!!

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.
