"I will be 46 1/2 when baby is born"

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Wednesday, December 28, 2005 | 0 comments


I had a beautiful, healthy baby boy 6 weeks before I turned 44. I am currently 30 weeks pregnant with another boy. I will be 46 1/2 when he is born on June 24th. At 43, It only took me 3 months to get pregnant.

It did take a lot longer this time. We actually tried for over a year, then went to an RE. I had 2 IUI's done with no success. Then the first month we really did not try (because of a cyst) I got pregnant naturally about 8 weeks before my 46th birthday. I will do my darndest to stay young and fit and healthy to keep up with these 2 little boys.

My dh is in great shape too, and he just turned 48.

Just wanted to know if there were any other moms 47+ years old expecting (this was without "trying") & what their experiences to date have been? I'm only 6 weeks along.

I am 47 and 6 months, my baby boy is due in Sept 1, making me nearly 24 weeks!! My last child is 15 years old. I did not have problems falling pregnant, but I know it is harder to conceive plus a higher risk for miscarriages.

I, too, have heard so many stories from people that have had children in their 40's. I can remember years ago when I heard that a gal I knew was 47 and having one, and I thought, my goodness. Well, here I am at 43, going to be 44 when I deliver, doing it.

I have heard some success stories—some on this board (one woman was 48) and some in my life (two friends of friends, one 47 and one 46). It happens.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
