Total shock at 47y - out of the blue - pregnant!

Catherine McDiarmid-Watt | Tuesday, January 03, 2006 | 0 comments

When I was expecting my 4 y.o. there was a 47 year old going to the same peri that I was. Her story: married 25 years and in all that time never got pregnant, assumed infertility, one day ... bang, out of the blue turns up pregnant. Total shock to her and her husband. She delivered at 36 weeks, and although the pregnancy was bedrested due to placenta previa, mother and baby were just fine.


I am a frequent lurker, will be 46 in June, and just got a bfp yesterday! I am in complete shock. Here's my saga...[My first] son born in 1981, [my 2nd] son born in 1984. Dh was 40 and insisted he was too old to have any more children, so he got a vasectomy. By 1993, I had convinced him to have it reversed, but we did not get pregnant. Gave up, 4 years later, surprise! [My 3rd son] born in 1998 (dh was 53, certainly not too old LOL). Tried and tried since September 1999 to get pg again, clomid, ICI, herbs, monitor, etc. Gave up again. Was late and crampy yesterday with no usual pre-period cervical mucus, so tested and it was positive! Dh will be almost 60 when this one is (prayerfully) born.


With permission of my good friend, I would like to announce that she is expecting at 46 and will be 47 when this little blessing is born. She is a mother of many already with her last baby born at 42. She conceived naturally only using an OPK to confirm when she thought she was ovulating. No special vitamins, herbs, meds. Nothing but a good time. Her husband is 51 and she is hoping to surprise him with the news on St. Patrick’s Day being as they are both from Ireland!


I turned 47 last October and to find out after New Year's I was pregnant, was a shock to my husband and I. I have had 5 healthy children 31, 30, 26, 20 and 15 years old ( 4 girls & 1 boy) I got remarried just last year to a man who as never had children because of his busy lifestyle. First it was a bit of a shock to him, for one he had a benign tumour in one of his testes and was told couple of years ago his sperm count was low (coughs) he then went through a 2nd stage of 'okay it is our responsibility' rolls eyes .. to now been so excited to be a dad on Sept 1 for the first time.


You can add me to the list. I had my last 3 at 40, 42, and 44.

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 our 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 there will be no more babies in our house.
