Someone submitted my name above - what a shock - well today I have a beautiful boy born on his due date, a very healthy pregnancy, easy birth (no drugs) and he is so bright. I was 48 when he was born.

She is 48 & proud mother of a 4m son

Posted by Ellen from Sweden on Aug-09-06 at 12:00 PM (EST)
Here in Sweden the organisation I belong to (Femmis - an organisation for single mothers of choice) just received a new member. She is 48 and the proud mother of a 4 month old son.


She was denied single adoption because of her age, so she decided to try to become pregnant instead ... This is her first child !

Many Oops pre-menopausal pregnancies

Keep the stories coming... You have probably read in my posts over & over that my brother-in-law is a retired OB GYN, and he saw a lot of post 40 pregnancies, however they were usually unhappy about it.

He is a big proponent of actively practicing birth control right up to menopause, because he saw so many Oops pre-menopausal pregnancies

Just found out I'm pregnant at 45

I had used Fertile Thoughts about 4 years ago as my husband and I were trying to have a child. I have 3 children from a previous marriage. But my husband and I started trying to have our own child about 8 years ago.

After 6 years and 6 miscarriages, I couldn’t handle the emotional roller coaster any longer and we gave up trying to have a child. I finally got to the acceptance that we weren’t going to have any more children after 2 years.

I just turned 45 2 weeks ago and I just found out that I am pregnant last week. I am extremely nervous as we typically lose the baby around 6 to 8 weeks. I have already been to the RE [reproductive endocrinologist] and have started preventative measures to hold on to this one.

My first beta was 343 and the second was 676. So, those numbers sound pretty good for my 33rd day. But I am understandably sceptical that this will work. The odds are not in our favour because of my age and history.

Any words of encouragement would be appreciated. We aren’t ready to share the news with any family or friends until we get some more positive news. Thanks!

Shocked - pregnant for 1st time at 45

At 45, after not using birth control for years, boy was I shocked when I got pregnant for the first time. I immediately rushed out and bought every book I could find on pregnancy in older women.

Friend was 45 when she gave birth to #6

Another mom I cared for, who is a friend of mine, was 45 when she gave birth to number six also. She had a number of miscarriages prior to her last pregnancy, with no history of earlier miscarriages.

Her husband had had a vasectomy which had been reversed as they decided they wanted one more baby! The miscarriages began occurring after the reversal, and it took about 3 years before she was able to conceive and carry to term.

She felt pretty tired and run down in the last pregnancy, and mostly scared of losing the baby, but the birth and postpartum was uncomplicated.
