Hi. pregnantgranny . How are things?. Hope all went well?. I know how you were feeling that's how I feel at the moment. I also have just turned 47 and just found out that I am pregnant. So pleased, but worried, go for my first scan next week. My oldest is 23. And youngest is almost 3. We are so pleased but on edge as I lost a baby it he of 2011. We got a dog in 2012. Nice to find other people pregnant or had children at 47.

Hi Julesstow,
Congats to you! How is your pregnancy going? Did you use any fertility drugs or did you conceive naturally? I'm 47 and trying to conceive for the last 2 years. I'm going to have my AMH, FSH and Estrodial levels tested next week and I'm praying to God that they're all within normal ranges. I miscarried in 2010 and I'm still pretty devastated by it.

I dont eactly know where they are attached, feels like down by my ovary's. Dr's still trying to figure it out. They dont believe me, they were thinking I was crazy. But.... This last time I seen my dr she didnt act like she thought I was crazy, and she referred me to a .Dr who knows about abdominal pregnancy. Since the "normal pregnancy" tests do not come out for me. I go to see him on wednesday the 15th. I cant wait.

Greetings everybody out there. Just a word of positive advice. 40 is just a number. Your pregnancy will be fine as long as you are healthy, exercise and have no complications. I have seen much younger woman go through more complications than me - just turning 40 this year ! I have 2 wonderful boys 18 & 8. And got pregnant one after the other last couple of years and still feeling 25! So all those ladies who want a baby out there in your 40s. Go for it.

To become pregnant at 47, you are surely a blessed woman! Congratulations! (PS My mum was 48 with heart trouble when she had my brother and, apart from getting a bit tired towards the end and being taken into hospital for a rest two weeks before the due date, mother and baby were both excellent!)

I have been feeling the same, I feel pregnant. I had taken a urine only because I get my friend every 28 days like clock work and its odd for me to not even see a spot. The doctors don't even want to see you when you give your age. I had my last son on my 41 birthday and I remember that test was negative at first too. I hate how they make you double think yourself. I'll let you know how it goes...did you have any symptoms?

Congratulations MOMMY!~
Miracles never cease! Proof there is a God in heaven! Studies have shown women who have children on in years are more tolerant, and a lot of times more"ready" to have them, than when they were much younger. Women in their 40's are more financially able to care for a child and most are educated beyond high school level. The studies showed that as we age, we are more prepared for rearing a child later on in years. Not saying young women are uneducated or not financially able ot care for a child.....I say its wonderful and a miracle for any woman to be able to have a child. I also say its wonderful and a miracle for God to "give " children through adoption (like my neice and nephew) to those who wish to become parents. Just want to ease some minds out there to all you terrific MOTHERS/ MOTHERS TO BE who are 40 +. God bless you all and I hope you have healthy and happy babies! HUGS~

Wow, that's wonderful! How is the pregnancy going? I was wondering how the babies could survive without a uterus? I'm really interested on knowing how it works...and delivery options too.

I know 3 ladies here in my town who all gave birth at 49 and 50. It's truly an amazing thing. I am kind of hoping I don't have children when I am that age or up until that age....I have 6 already and that would end up being quite a handful!

I'm 39 and my husband and I have decided, just this week, to start trying. We met and married only 3 years ago and thought we never wanted kids. Now, we're trying - full steam ahead! I am dieting, taking folic acid, and making an appt with a genetic counselor on Monday. Neither of us wanted children our whole lives, now all of a sudden, we're really excited about the possibility of having a family. I'm nervous though, and don't want to get my hopes up. Smile

I haven't tried naturally (without protection), but am setting appointment to consider artificially. I feel healthy and really hope I become pregnant.

Pregnancy From 47 on
Is there something particular I can do to increase my chance of becoming pregnant at 47? Lots of folic acid? Anything else? Thanks!
