Came to Dr. Wu at 45, 6 months later pregnant

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Saturday, January 14, 2006 | 0 comments


Diane, who also didn't want her last named used, came to [Dr.] Wu in 1998 at age 45. The Marin County woman had a daughter who died at the age of 16 months in 1993. For the next five years, she said, she and her husband spent more than $50,000 and suffered seven miscarriages trying to conceive another child. "I tried all the high-tech routes. We tried everything," said Diane, now 48."I came to her in desperation." Six months later, Diane was pregnant with her daughter, now a year and a half old. "I'm so thankful and so lucky every day to have this child," she said. "It's beyond words."

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.
