Author Kate Kerrigan had her second son when she was 45, eight years after she gave birth to her first son. “I had my first child when I was 37 and I was very much thinking this was the last gas station before the desert. I was in my mid-30s before I met a man willing to marry me. By that time I was in a panic to get pregnant. I had a lot of anxiety about leaving it too late.
...When I was 45, I got pregnant again. I thought I was menopausal and had gained a little weight. I did the test as a dare because my friend mentioned my thick ankles. When it came up positive it was a shock.”
“We are led to believe that when a woman is a certain age, she’s not going to get pregnant. But it’s just not true. There are times in your life when it suits you to have a baby in your twenties or thirties and there’s a time when it’s 40-plus.”
