Grandmother who believed she was in menopause gives birth at age 50

Grandmother who believed she was in menopause gives birth at age 50 Michele  Hall didn’t realize that the aches and pains she felt, which she dismissed as symptoms of menopause or lupus were actually signs of pregnancy. She says she didn’t experience morning sickness or weight gain — signs Michele would have recognized: She had her first child, Aaron Myers, now 34, at age 15. Daughter Heather Yeager, 28, followed, and then Brandon Myers, 24. Heather has two children of her own, a 6-year-old and a 4-year-old. Perimenopause, which typically starts when a woman is in her mid-to-late 40s, is a years-long transition in which women experience hot flashes and irregular periods.

“You don’t look old enough to have 10 children!"

"Well, my oldest is only 9…"

Besides having 10 children (and counting), our family is known for having children super close in age. So close, in fact, that seven of them are the same age as a sibling for a certain part of the year.

With one set of fraternal twins and three sets of "Irish Twins," our household is full of noise, messes, and laughter.

My husband and I are both the oldest of large families (6 and 10 children). We talked about children before marriage, but I don’t think I ever wanted a certain number.

I Never Thought it Would Be This Hard to Be a Mom

I Never Thought it Would Be This Hard to Be a Mom “Just get them on a schedule,” they said. “Enjoy every minute when they’re little,” they said. “Once you have two, you might as well have more,” they said. “You were made for this,” they said. []

Wondering if you're pregnant ? Take the Clearblue quiz to see if those symptoms could be an early indicator of pregnancy . If you test early and get a ‘Not Pregnant ’ result it is possible that the level of pregnancy hormone may not yet be high enough to be detected.

I ' m pregnant with my fifth child and while I am certainly excited and love this baby very much, I can't help but be a little bit embarrassed, too. The truth couldn’t be less boring and although my sex life and reproductive choices should not be up for discussion, having a lot of kids certainly puts it out there.

I do remember my husband suggesting having 10 because his mother had 10.

I scoffed and said I was "too old." My oldest child ended up being born just before my 26th birthday.

God must have heard me laugh and in just under 10 years of marriage, we were blessed with 11 pregnancies. That includes seven singletons, one set of twins, two miscarriages, and one due here shortly. Is it tiring to be constantly pregnant?

Thankfully, my body handles pregnancy well, and believe it or not, I still get thrilled with each positive test.

I’m starting to recognize the early signs and usually get a positive test before a missed cycle. We can’t surprise our family and friends though because by now, everyone expects the news. My husband isn’t really surprised either because it’s been a normal part of our entire marriage. I’m sure that sounds so foreign to most people, but since it’s all we’ve ever known, the experience of going a few years without a pregnancy would be extremely foreign to us.

‘The dream was gone’: Kate Snow opens up about her heartbreak after miscarriages

Am I Pregnant Again ? Pregnancy test results. A little bit about me : I am a stay at home mom of 2 kids under 2, Ellerie and Eli! I have been married to my highschool sweetheart (Kyle) for 3 years now and we are just sharing parts of our life with you.

I just found out that I am pregnant again after a c-section 6 months ago. Thanks for asking this question! i was searching this website for anything similar to what i am going through now. I ' m pregnant again after only having my daughter 2 months ago via C-section.

Of course managing so many littles has its challenges.

Even though they may drive me batty at times, I can’t imagine being happy doing anything else. Some of the challenges are having multiple babies in diapers, finding more than one sitter at a time, having to book more than one hotel room, driving and parking a 15-passenger van, washing tons of laundry, always cleaning up messes, etc., etc. Oh! And did I mention the staring and comments we get out in public?

The "You must have your hands full" comments when I’m out with just two or three of the children are always amusing.

If they only knew! Once when I was out with two of my girls, someone asked if I was going to try for a boy. I had to break the news to her I already had six boys.

Pregnant Woman Fighting Breast Cancer Gets 9 Rounds of Chemo While Carrying Her Baby

Pregnant Woman Fighting Breast Cancer Gets 9 Rounds of Chemo While Carrying Her Baby Just a few weeks after she found out she was pregnant, Jordana Beck was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); Beck, 32, was 11 weeks pregnant when she got the diagnosis. She had found a lump on her breast, and doctors confirmed it was cancer. She actually had two tumors in her breast, both of which were triple-negative—a very aggressive form of breast cancer. In a recent interview on TODAY, Beck said, "I have always been really healthy.

Congratulations, kudos, and woo hoo – you're pregnant ! In those rare moments when you're not dancing on air or completely freaking out, you may wonder what you need to do next. Here are the most important things to do as you wait to meet your baby.

Yes , again . But being pregnant is a little like having a chronic illness; it seems to encourage people to say some very silly things to you, and because you are in a somewhat fragile state, you don’t just laugh them off as you might otherwise.

We’ve also had a few rude encounters. From unpleasant stares to statements like, "Did you have them all with the same partner?!" or "Seven kids? That’s terrible!"

One of the perks of having so many littles is having more than one child on the same mental/physical level. Because of that they usually play well together and enjoy doing the same things. Another thing I enjoy is all the excitement we experience at Christmas, birthdays, and family trips. I actually gave birth to a party!

We get asked at times whether or not we plan on having more children. The honest truth? I really don’t know. Due to complete placenta previa and a cord issue during my twin pregnancy I’ve already had to have two C-sections. Thankfully, I found a great team of midwives at our university’s hospital and I’ve had the opportunity to VBAC since then. I’m sure by now I’m one of their regulars and folks at the ultrasound office even recognize me and my chart.

Pregnant Women: This Sleep Position Can Reduce the Risk of Stillbirth

Pregnant Women: This Sleep Position Can Reduce the Risk of Stillbirth New research is showing that pregnant women can lower the risk of stillbirth by sleeping on their side and not on their backs. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.getMedianetNativeAds(true); }); The recent findings – led by a professor at the University of Huddersfield in England – will now be part of the National Health Service’s (NHS) official guidelines meant to reduce the number of stillborn babies in the UK. It’s estimated that nine a day, or one in every 225 births, ends in a stillbirth. The professor – Dr.

Turns out I am pregnant again after my miscarriage. Yes , absolutely! I miscarried in May 2010 and went 7 weeks w/o having another period. Again all my tests were negative, but I knew as I had multiple symptoms; particularly sore breasts which I have never had except during pregnancy !

Yes , it was a little unexpected, but it was meant to be :D. So you got pregnant 5 months after having a baby! AWESOME, and CONGRATULATIONS! When you tell people that you are pregnant again be sure to add how happy you are that your kids will be close in age.

Some people have expressed concern about my health, but the rest of my pregnancies have been complication-free and full-term.

However, I know anything can happen in the future and if other complications come our way, we’ll wisely consider our family planning options.

Until then, I reckon we’ll continue to take them as they come and celebrate each positive pregnancy test and the unique little life it brings. Children are a blessing indeed.
