The DM is reporting that HB is pregnant at 46! This is excellent news for us old uns trying to do the same. I'm sick of reading about how difficult it is over 40, how dangerous it is/high risk, how selfish it is, bla bla bla negativity. Congratulations Halle, wishing you a joyous pregnancy and healthy baby. This gives me hope and's not over for me yet..... :-)

My friend had her twin boys 2 1/2 months before she turned 50, everyone's thriving and the twins are about to turn 1. It's a joy to behold grin
Good luck OP thanks

I wish Halle the very best of luck especially as she's type I diabetic - could be a hard pregnancy, although tbf she won't be struggling to get the bins out. wink

A friend of mine has just had a son at the age of 47 after years of trying to conceive.
My cousin is 45 and expecting her third child.
My GP is 48 and expecting her second child.
It is much more common than one would think.
To all those over the age of 40 who are trying to conceive, never give up hope.

I know a lady who had a baby at 51. She had ivf but still, amazing!

It is very difficult to get pregnant at 46, most of the older celebs have had donor eggs. However good luck to them!

SquidgyMummy Sat 06-Apr-13 17:35:10

yes i did wonder if the eggs were donated but she has the means for the very best fertility treatment.
all the best; hope for me too at 42!

My gran had my mum at 44. Have hope!!

Ledkr Mon 08-Apr-13 07:19:37

I had my last baby at 44. Pregnancy no harder than when I was 17.
The night feeds however are a different story but I guess Halle won't worry about that.
I also went from having a fab figure (after four) to looking like the fat controller sad
Let's hope that doesn't happen to her or its bye bye bikini shots ha ha

conceived naturally btw

I conceived naturally at age 42 and 44.

It was not uncommon for women of my mum's generation to fall pregnant in their 40's (though these tended to be last babies rather than first).

What a lovely gives me hope. I was 43 in February and had a mmc in January. I have been a bit despondent the past few weeks but it's lovely to hear positive stories grin

Ledkr Mon 08-Apr-13 19:57:41

Good luck cali it worked for me when I stopped thinking about it.

CaliBee Mon 08-Apr-13 22:10:44

Thankyou ledkr ...I've heard that said before.

hopefulgum Mon 08-Apr-13 22:51:04

Just what I needed to hear. I am 46 and ttc. I had my last bubba at almost 42, but have had three miscarriages since. I'd love to know if Halle Berry had Assisted reproduction? It is likely I think, but I'm still chuffed for her and all us oldies who do have babies in our forties. It is possible.grin

hopefulgum Mon 08-Apr-13 22:54:33

According to this it was a natural, surprise conception! thanks

choccyp1g Mon 08-Apr-13 22:55:50

I had my first (and last) at 42.5 I had te easiest pregnancy and birth of anyone I know, however, the next 12 years have been much harder! Good on you Halle !

Snazzynewyear Mon 08-Apr-13 22:56:06

Good luck to her. She has the means to get the best treatment I didn't know she was T1 diabetic. Is the baby with Olivier Martinez?

OrangeLily Mon 08-Apr-13 23:23:20

Fuck me.... Halle is 46!?!?!hmmhmm

Isn't that Kylies ex?

OnwardBound Wed 10-Apr-13 09:07:05

Donor eggs?

Congratulations to her!

SquidgyMummy Wed 10-Apr-13 17:43:08

Lighthousekeeping yes Oliver Martinez is Kyslie's ex.
Apparently she is not very happy as he was not keen on settling down with her and she is another one for whom the bio clock is ticking loudly. Although in interviews, she always sound very philosophical about it...

I had dd at 42. There was a thread on here today about people thinking their parents were looking older. One was talking about her dad at 53 and another at 55, and how frail and old they were looking!

Not sure where that leaves me at 49 ( I would love to be frail looking, but am nearer the Fat Contoller analogy I fear)
