Pregnant at 48 forum

I am almost 49 with 2 kids and have a very strong desire to have a third child. I still get my period every month and I never had a fertility problem, so I know the chances are slim but I wonder if I could get pregnant.

I am about lbs. I'm worried about birth defects or other health issues for the baby, medical risks to myself, financial stress, and the psychological issues associated with having a child who may lose his or her mother at a young age. Despite these worries, I really want to have a child. Has anyone had a situation having a baby at almost 50?

They are now four and half yrs old : Despite all the health warnings and at times, too much pessimism from others - I had a really good pregnancy. BTW I was never really into fitness or nutrition Too busy working long hours and travelling with my sm g350e custom recovery.

Hi Cathy. Well I'm the same age as you and I think you can make it. Try to be with your partner on your strongest days. I think I'v just become pregnant. I have reason to believe I had two very early miscarriages this year though, so am keeping my fingers crossed that this time is for real. I went to a homepathis doctor who prescribed me loads of medicine so let's hope it makes a difference.

I have terrible cramps though and bloatiness, back ache, many symptons of an early pregnancy, but I had the same earlier this year. However the homepathis doctor said to be really positive, so I am taking her advice. Please reply Close menu. Am I pregnant? Toddlers years Tween and teens.

Incontinence may occur in women who get pregnant after the age of 40; this inability to hold urine is a symptom of pregnancy that also can instead be mistaken as a sign of the onset of menopause.

A missed period is usually a telltale sign of pregnancy to a younger woman, but it may be overlooked by a woman who is thinking more about potential menopause than pregnancy. Tension and stress not related to pregnancy or menopause can also cause a missed period. Nausea or morning sickness is a pregnancy symptom, but it can also be mistaken for food poisoning, stress or other gastrointestinal problems, according to the American Pregnancy Association.

Backaches are usually one of the first signs of pregnancy in all women, according to the American Pregnancy Association. However, sometimes these are also associated with an imminent period, stress or general back problems.
